Stealing Mary-Kate & Ashley's style; the twins lauch new website.

What better way to steal Mary-Kate and Ashley's coveted style than by buying clothes designed by the twins themselves? Last week Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's high-end line 'The Row' launched it's much-anticipated website The Row offers gorgeous high end basics in keeping with the Olsens' own unique style. Known for it's understated luxury, the line consists largely of twists on classic pieces that every girl needs in her wardrobe (like the leather trousers I'm lusting for, who doesn't need those?). They also do menswear so boyfriends take note. However, you're going to have to wait a while as online purchasing won't be available until April. For now just think of it more as a lookbook.

Here is a video Mary-Kate & Ashley made to showcase their collection two years ago when they were just launching The Row. To be honest not much has changed as they seem to focus more on colourless, seasonless staples with a bit of an edge as opposed to fashion-forward statement pieces so it seems just as relevant now as it did then.

They also have a more casual-wear focused line called 'Elizabeth and James', named after their less famous siblings. See the collection here: I really love their Spring 2010 shoes! Particularly styles 'Chic' and 'Star'(far right of the slideshow), but actually I love most of them. And it seems that one of my other favourite fashionistas, Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen is also a fan.

I also loved this pair of cute Elizabeth & James flats that Mary-Kate was seen wearing herself on several occasions while out and about in New York City last summer. (Actually I love everything about the first look apart from the ugly orange and purple bag at the front - want it all - the oversized black fringed bag, the oversized punk knitted jumper dress, the round statement sunglasses, love it!)

While I'm still not completely sold on the overpriced basics The Row has to offer, I think I have a new obsession in Elizabeth and James shoes, but at $350 a pop I better get saving.... More soon.
