In the past I have gushed about Mary-Kate Olsen’s crazy boho style and I also love Ashley’s sleek, polished looks, too, but when I decided to blog about my love for the Olsen twins this morning, I didn’t realize how much I actually loved them!
I grew up with their movies and Wal-Mart fashion amd makeup products. I just kind of forgot until good ol’ Wikipedia reminded me.
So, instead of starting with the now…let’s go back a few good years…
Of course, when they were babies, I was a few years away from existence, so I didn’t get into their show Full House until a couple of semesters ago. Both Ashley and Mary-Kate share the role of Michelle Turner in this cute series about a father whose wife passed away. MK&A are so cute and I especially love the episode when their “hip” Uncle Jesse dreams that there’s two of Michelle (so both twins are shown!) I wish I could find that clip!
And now we move onto their early childhood. I looved watching their “Adventures of Mary-Kate And Ashley” movies. My favorite that I can remember watching again and again is “The Case of Thorn Mansion” where they investigate a “haunted” house only to find out it was actually just the groundskeeper who kept honeybees.
As I reach my kid and pre-teen years so does my taste in movies and MK&A’s teenage years are perfect choices—full of adventures, style and boys!
Their teen movies such as:
“Passport to Paris”–(1999) a trip to Paris to visit their very rich grandfather
“Billboard Dad”–(2000) they decide to paint a full billboard-sized ad about their single dad (I’m still amazed how they sneak onto the billboard and manage to completely paint a full sized ad with just a bucket of blue paint)
“New York Minute”–(2004) the girls have opposite personalities (academic obsessed, truent rocker) and go on two crazy adventures around New York City (including truency officers, a piracy ring andmusic videos) only to realize they should strengthen their relationship. (Sounds so real, doesn’t it? And yet….I love it)
and of course, I love their fashion sense. I can’t say I’m a fan of everything they wear—like the tons of fur, the round 60’s-esque sunglasses, and much more, but I can appreciate their general fashion sense and have finally found blogs dedicated to the twins (which makes me feel a bit better that there are people out there who are more obsessed than I) One such blog: Olsens Anonymous where they show you all things Olsen including tons and tons of outfits.
Anyway, just a fun post for today. I, of course, have a ton of photos I use to inspire my own outfits but I thought I’d give you all a break. 😉
