Olsen Necessities

Although they change their styles regularly, there are certain items that have been long associated with each Olsen and one with both.

MK’s Red Chanel

Mary Kate Olsen loves a red Chanel 2.55 so much she even wrote an article for the New York Times about it! She claims it was Ashley’s but I’ve yet to find a picture of her with it.

Brand Loyalty
By Mary Kate Olsen

“I have a large, red quilted Chanel bag that I borrowed from my sister Ashley. I wore it to an event and never gave it back. Luckily, she's moved on to another bag, so I'm safe for now. I'm not quite sure how many bags I have, but let's just say I have a few. When I find a bag I like, I tend to wear it to death until I become obsessed with another one. This probably happens three to five times a year. But I always come back to the Chanel. The size isn't overwhelming, and it has enough subtle detail to keep it interesting.

I also have the smaller version in blue and in white, but the red is definitely my favorite. I don't have a stylist — I'd rather just do my own thing and put together my own outfits. The chain-handle bag is the perfect accent to almost any combination I come up with. I look at everything with a designer's eye, but I wouldn't change a thing about this bag. I think that's why it's a true classic.”

Ash’s Black Fendi

Ashley instead has long been seen with a black Fendi tote but she has yet to write a love letter to it.


And of course, Mary Kate & Ashley cannot live without a Venti cup from Starbucks. They run on coffee, not water, didn’t you know?

I run on coffee, too.

I like the Chanel bag in red. I've never seen it in that size/color format.

Kat said...

haha that is true - they love their starbucks!

Love mk's red chanel - well who wouldn't and wouldn't mind ashley's bag either!

It's good. I like the idea that they actually reuse things. Some celebrities get so caught up in wearing what's in and what's new and end up wearing items once or twice before giving it away.

No one really cares that they rewear things. Well, some magazine feature specific articles on how celebrities wear things over and over...but come on, anyone reading those magazines should spend more time getting their ass off the couch and reading something more intellectual.

I LOVE YOUR OBSESSIONS FOR MK & ASHLEY! Your posts are always so fun and it just inspires me so so much and of course! Give me a strong strong urge to go out, straight to Stopshop on this rainy Sunday afternoon to purchase that lovely plaid shirt!

I do not go for red; but that Chanel bag is just; timeless! And of course! That Fendi tote is PERFECT for school! Now; if only I can persuade my mom to get it for me=p HAHA

The Olsens are so wonderful! I won't ever grow tired of them or their fashion choices. I would give so much to own a red Chanel 2.55 too. Ahh..it's so gorgeous!

The Clothes Horse said...

Ooh, I love their style and loyalty. It's so refreshing to see a starlet wear or use the same thing twice!

MK's Chanel bag is so pretty! Since the first time I saw her carrying it, I wanted one for myself lol
Love when you wrote: "They run on coffee, not water, didn’t you know?" hehe I'm also a Starbucks fan :P

She looks amazing!
