For a brief time, it looked like Miss Olivia was positioning herself to be a fashionista. She went through a period where she wore some discussable, attention-seeking, occasionally interesting outfits, but then it seems like she quickly course-corrected toward highly conventional looks. It’s been a long time since she’s worn something that really intrigued us.
These are both cute, however. So there’s that.

See? Cute. No great shakes and not particularly memorable, but she looks presentable and fresh. Our only issue is with the design of the dress. The fabrics look way too heavy for such a springtime kinda look. From a short distance, it looks like it’s made out of terry cloth.
Makeup’s fine; hair and shoes: presentable. It’s all SxSW-appropriate.
For her next look, Miss O switched things up a bit:

With its retro-hipster vibe, this one’s even more SxSW-appropriate. It’s cute. Can’t say we adore the hair, but she’s going for a look here and we can appreciate that. We salute that she’s going for “looks” at all and trying to make a different impression with each outfit. She went from fresh in the first dress to just a little funky in the second. Attagirl.
We only hope the next step is a funky-fresh look. We’re thinking mid-’90s hip hop. Go ahead, Olivia. We dare you. Show up dressed like Salt-N-Pepa next. We’d love you for it.
