that's not brooklyn, it's west village...near the highline...

i do think her copy is very clichéd and the photos are still pretty crappy...
i keep hoping she'll look at other blogs and see how great her blog can be (copy and photos)...

^ Ummmm..I'm not sure: There is a Washington St (see behind her) in Brooklyn that is right under the Manhattan Bridge By Brooklyn Bridge Park and there are cobblestones in the neighborhood, too...Doesn't she actually live in DUMBO? That would be Water St where the picture was taken...(New York Obsessives Unite!!)

^This is true. Smack Mellon Studio is right behind her, which is on Plymouth and Washington in Dumbo.

"This past month wrapped up March Madness and the famous tradition of taking down the mesh hole net by the winning team during the annual “one shining moment” theme song was embraced by all. While watching this moment I reconfirmed sports and fashion do have many direct correlations. This is especially the case this season, with sporty chic ruling the racks and the web. High scores on the Spring/Summer 2012 runway: Tibi, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Christian Dior, all achieving their ”winning moments”!"
Is this passage from her blog? I can't even make sense of the first sentence. What's the "one shining moment" theme song? And what correlation did she find between March Madness and fashion? Why is "winning moments" in quotes?

The writing is cringe-worthy.

So I sent an email to the managing partner of OliviaPalermo.com...

I pretty much listed out all the complaints that TFS has had about the blog (I've been following this thread for three years now, before I even signed up for TFS). She responded, so I think they've taken some of them into consideration. For example, I told her that there has to be a unified width for all the images, or the entries just look like clutter and mess. Seems like they've fixed that. Hope the blog will see an improvement soon

Awe, aren't you sweet! Her blog is poorly organised. I can't beleive she hasn't presented her site better, after all she worked at Elle and DVF, shouldn't she know better about editing etc...

^Exactly! She's supposed be a perfectionist. She said that herself in an interview. Her blog definitely doesn't reflect that...

now the previous photos are visible, too.

I like the simple elegance, but the big black "surface" is unusual for me.

This dress makes her waist look tiny. She could have possibly drowned in this dress, but it looks like it drapes well. I love the clutch.
