Olivia Palermo Designs Overpriced Necklaces
Despite our personal feelings about the villainous Olivia Palermo, one fact is irrefutable — the girl knows how to dress. Not an episode of The City goes by without us drooling over Palermo’s perfect sense of style. The work shorts, the accessories, the cropped jackets — we love it all.
So when we heard Palermo would be designing a line of necklaces with Roberta Freymann, we were thrilled. We expected chunky crystal necklaces, vintage inspired designs, and statement pieces that could instantly perfect an outfit.
And the 5-piece collection of bib necklaces are perfectly Palermo. The Belgravia necklace will add a touch of tribal to a casual outfit, the Tribeca piece, with its blues and golds, can spice up your favorite little black dress, and the green beaded Mitte necklace would add dramatic elegance to any outfit. All in all, we were impressed with Palermo’s designs.
But the limited variety of pieces will cost you a pretty penny. Currently being exclusively sold through UK e-tailer Matches Fashion, the bibs will cost you anywhere from $300-$500 — a pretty penny, considering there’s nary a semi-precious gem to be seen on any of the pieces.
