These fashionistas might insist that they are 2 different people, but---in fashion----their 2 minds are much greater than 1....I still remember their line @ Wal-Mart...back then, of course...I didn't buy anything because it was aimed @ their then audience---little girls ranging from 2-10ish...Today, they have expanded to the elite fashion industry...they aren't like other celeb designers like J L0, Lauren Conrad, or Kimora...they take the back seat and do the instructing without necessarily placing their name on everything. And the result is high fashion that reflects their personal style that we all LOVE! (Well, most of us) I love it! I just hope they can take the line to a more accessible price point like they started off with. Until then, you can find deals for their lines, The Row and Elizabeth & James (names after their siblings) on Shop Style, Outnet, and Shop It To Me.
The ladies coffee table book, "Influence," which I found to be a great way to find out what inspires these fashionista's and a way to be inspired by all of the industry insiders that the Olsen's interviewed. The book reminds me of a collage of all of their ideas and thoughts...kind of like an inspiration board. I have 1 signed copy to give away to the person who share who INFLUENCES their style in a comment below.
