Ashley Olsen discusses her personal style in the September issue of Marie Claire magazine.
The mini mogul and style icon says "I think you're either born with a sense of style or you're not. Either you care or you don't."
She goes on to say, "When we were going to NYU, I think that was the first time we were aware of the power of our personal style. Not the power of it, but the result…. Between the big sunglasses and Starbucks cup and big sweaters, the hobo-chic thing, we were more shocked than anything…. Mary-Kate and I are very aware of trends and style, but at the end of the day, we don't even think twice about it. It's just 'What do I feel like wearing today, and how do I want to put it together?"
Yeah, but most people aren’t rockin clothes they picked up at Paris fashion week; they’re getting their clothes at Wal-Mart, Target or the mall.
She continues, "The amount of beautiful things we've ruined - not having the patience for a tailor and cutting everything ourselves…My sister once took an Alaia dress of mine and just cut the whole thing, and then was like, 'I cut it too short.' Mary-Kate and I don't think about fashion as these clean, beautiful objects. We just kind of wear it and live in it."
Well, I guess when you’ve got money to burn, cutting away at a sweater that probably cost more than most peoples rent payments is really like cutting up something you pulled out of the trash.
