Olivia Palermo Mixes Ruffles and Fringes

The City star Olivia Palermo attended the Operation Smile Annual Gala last May 7 in this attire:

What do you think of her ensemble? Do you think the purple fringe mini bag goes with the tiered ruffle dress? What can you say about her shoes?

If you ask me, the purple fringe mini bag isn’t that bad. But the pieces she combined it with are a little off. It’s like she was trying to channel boho and flapper at the same time, but missed getting both.

The shoes are definitely wrong; the dress is too long, and with the fringe mini bag, the whole look becomes a little overdone. Well, at least that’s what I think.

Care to share your two cents on her attire?

On another note, if you’re into fringe mini purses that double up as evening bags like Olivia here, you can try these pieces. But please, don’t wear it with ruffles.
