Mary-Kate Olsen was spotted strolling around Tribeca with a Starbucks in hand on April 29, demonstrating that she's not afraid to mix patterns in her outfits. Side note - where is Ashley? I feel like it's been ages since we've seen her. For MK's look, she started with a patterned, chunky sweater dress (for similar options, try Gold Hawk's beautiful Water Color Print Poncho Dress in Fuchsia, Plenty by Tracy Reese's Ruffled Shift Dress in Gumdrop Stripes, or Cake Couture's Ikat Tie Dress) and paired it with classic black Ray-Ban Clubmasters, black gladiator sandals, and two handbags: one vintage or vintage-esque patterned bag and one black fringed bag (like Linea Pelle Collection's Janis Fringe Clutch in Vintage Black). This is definitely a very "MK" look and it's doubtful if any other celeb could pull it off without everyone saying that they're trying too hard to be like Mary-Kate - however, do you think it looks good on the tiny twin? Mary-Kate is speaking out about, naturally, her interest and love of fashion, and says of her favorite spots in Manhattan, "All the streets are so special here. I live around here. I'm always amazed at how the streets always look different. I'm always blown away. The other day, I walked down the street and the trees right now, the white trees and the petals everywhere. So beautiful. Hanging out at Battery Park. There's something magical about New York and the seasons and watching it change." MK definitely hearts NY! Of her popular clothing line Elizabeth & James, says Olsen, "We just expanded into menswear. We did jewelry and shoes. What we do is start with something really small. I'm sure handbags will make sense next. We want to make sure what we do, we do well. Otherwise there is no point." I can't wait to see what they have in store for menswear, how about you?

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen seen in New York, NY on Apr 29 2009.

this is some crap fashion. i guess pjs will cut it tooguest on May 05 2009 @ 09:02 AM

Wow, she is so sexy! Then it is not strange why her nak ed photos were posted at the forum of .....C e l e b m i n g l e . C 0 M....., the man said he was her neighbor, she always enjoy in dating to different men.guest on May 05 2009 @ 09:53 AM

love it, love mk.. probably isnt, but the sweater looks like its chloe.. shes so inspiring and has such original taste that cant really be duplicated .. if when you look at this all you see is a messy sweater then go comment on that LC douche bags page, cause you simply don't understand edgy original fashionguest on May 05 2009 @ 05:14 PM

How is it edgy and original? because it may have a label like "chloe", understanding the basics of fashion, is to look good, not how much you pay for a name brand to say its "so and so brand". As far as LC and not understanding fashion, it goes back to the principal of looking effortless and good, and once again, she does not look good. She always looks dirty and disholved in some silly neo hippie look that's just not hitting it. I don't care who wears what, as long as the look is hot...guest on May 05 2009 @ 05:55 PM

^ leave it to MK to always spark the fashion debate fire!guest on May 05 2009 @ 06:30 PM

whoaa..combative commeting.. i love mary kate.. yes she does not dress boring and plain and it totally looks a good way. boring is the absolute worst thing to be said about fashiona and majority of celebs are just that.guest on May 06 2009 @ 04:43 PM

I impressed with you fashion talk and about your fashion interest.I am also interested in <a href="">fashion modeling</a> world.

you know what's worse than boring style. UGLY!!guest on May 07 2009 @ 11:10 PM

This is just awful, no justification for itguest on May 08 2009 @ 05:03 AM

these sad plain people.. depressing how boring people are.. just cause mk isnt trying to be cheesy and sexy like every other celebrity. i guess its too much for mainstream media ..everyone freaks out and thinks shes so out there and crazy but for the real high fashion publications she is genuinely respected for her authenticity and the fact that she can work outfits boring people would look like assholes inguest on May 09 2009 @ 04:54 PM
