Oh, Olivia, why do you always look so perfect? How do you do it? Some ladies aren’t fond of this ultra-fashionable socialite, but we guess it’s probably out of envy. Would you agree?
Aside from the obvious fact that she is quite the tastemaker, Olivia is also exceptionally pretty, has a closet full of designer everything, and has a hot model boyfriend with gorgeous abs; above all, she exudes that born-with-it grace and poise a lot of girls would kill to have. So, yes, those are probably enough reasons to be jealous of her. Now, whether or not she looks just as fabulous when she’s sleeping, we don’t know. But what we do know is that we can’t stop stalking her.
Speaking of Olivia, the doe-eyed stylista was recently spotted attending several presentations at New York Fashion Week. We certainly didn’t miss her because she wore a pair of striped black-and-white statement heels to the events.
At the Carolina Herrera show, Olivia used that pair to cap off a layered look that included a navy dress worn over a white long-sleeve shirt. The following day, she was once again seen with the same sandals. She mixed them with fringed separates and an oversized clutch. Both outfits were unexpected and a little unusual, and yet, per usual, Olivia managed to look amazing.

How do you like her outfits?
When it comes to mixing and matching, you could say Olivia is, no doubt, a guru. And then, of course, there’s the fact that she can pull off literally anything. You can put her in a sack or a garbage bag, and she can still make it look like it’s couture.
Olivia is also known to have periodical shoe favorites. Every now and then, you’d find her wear the same pair for two or three consecutive days. Her current fancy is from Giuseppe Zanotti — a pair from an off-season collection that is already sold out.

One look and you can already tell that these shoes are quite dramatic. They’re made of printed canvas — bold black-and-white stripes for the straps and brown-and-black camo for the trim. The 5-inch heels are also wrapped with poppy yet exotic canary yellow snake-embossed leather. With such a combination, you can easily spot these sandals from a mile.
Sorry, they’re literally impossible to find. However, we did come across a pair from the same designer that is just as colorful, in case you don’t mind grabbing an alternative:
That said, you are more than welcome to “steal” Olivia’s style for less if that is what you’re after. The following printed options will do the job just as well. Plus, they won’t cost you as much — that, we’re pretty sure of.
