I've been reading another biography on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis recently. I'm almost through it, and it's a great read! This book, Jackie Style, covers JBKO's style as it evolved over the years. As a young woman, through Camelot and Onassis to finally, her look when she worked in publishing (Hello Valentino!). She certainly set the standard in women's fashion, but knew when to leave one look behind and change her style.
I am now on the hunt for a classic Jackie style suit. 3/4 length sleeves and a slim cut skirt. Something like this:
Jackie's style was truly timeless. Like many of you, I'm attracted to Lilly dresses, Tory Burch, and Kate Spade for their timeless and classic styles. Much of what Kate Spade designs looks like it arrived in a very chic time capsule from 1962. There are some vintage stores in my area, but I find many of them to feel like a Salvation Army. or extremely expensive. So I wonder, do you wear vintage? There is a fine line between looking timeless and classic and looking like you're wearing a costume. Please share if any of you have purchased vintage and how you wear it.
If you're interested in this book, you can probably get it at your library, or here at Amazon.
