Step Into the Future of Fashion With Classic Inspiration From Ms. Jackie Kennedy

31 Aug

JACKIO

We all know the beautiful Jackie Kennedy, (later to be named Jackie Onassis) as first lady to the charming Mr. John F. Kennedy. Us ladies also know that Jackie Kennedy was a prominant figure in fashion, revamping the White House by bringing style into politics and yes, making it look good. She set the stage for what the ideal “American” woman should look like; sophistcated, classy, and of course fun. I have always admired Jackie for her strong-willed, independent and witty personality. I read a few short excerpts in the book, “What Jacki Taught Us” by Tina Santi Flaherty and something that caught my attention was after the first day she was selected to work for VOGUE MAGAZINE, she turned it down claiming the women worked to hard and were tiresome. Ha! How about that? She made fashion something fun and exciting, not something that consumed her.

Sticky.Vinyll would like to inspire Jackie’s look on to all the ladies approaching the future of fashion, who are looking for something new, but still classic. Notice how less is more and how pearls, a simple hat, and good pair of gloves will change a girl into a whole new woman …AND don’t forget the shades! Thanks Jackie.

Fall Finds.

Fall is quickly approaching. Time to start shopping for the necessities; jackets, boots, sweaters and more. It’s important to buy a few staple pieces early in the fall and add gradually as the weather gets cooler. One piece I feel is good to have in your wardrobe for the fall is the classic trench coat. The Twisted Trench Coat in khaki, featured on ShopNastyGal.com for $118 is a perfect option. I like this specific trench coat because of the classic khaki color and traditional double breasted detail. I like this jacket because it’s short, lightweight, and has a youthful appeal. I think it would look best paired with something of a similar length, like a dress or skirt, or with a tall pair of riding boots! Check it out here now!

Victorian Sci-Fi Surgery

I stumbled upon these Ginormous Platforms while sufing the net a few days ago. By designer Gabrielle M. Gonzalez, this platform is featured in her “Victorian Sci-Fi Surgery” collection for Autumn/Winter 2010. I have yet to find out how much they are going for, but they can be found at Machine-A boutique in London. Please, don’t hesitate to see her LookBook. The photography is amazing, and model Jemima Croker is exceptional. You can also visit Gabrielle’s blog to find the latest news going on in her world.

Armani 2010/2011

ARMANI introduces his 2010/2011 Fall/Winter collection. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that the garments and accessories he designed are just ideal. Of course I love his gowns, my favorite being the one pictured above. It’s a perfect example of seductive, sophisticated and gorgeous evening wear (also see The Nocturnal Approach ).

However, I was more so inspired by this collection because I love his suite pieces. They look somewhat 50’s inspired, pencil skirts, tailored pants, structured jackets; pretty much everything I admire. (there’s not much I don’t like if you haven’t noticed by now.) Take a look at everything else I LOVED from this collection!

The Sun Gods.

K A R E N W A L K E R


Everyone should praise The Sun Gods, and Karen Walker for that matter for creating her Fall 2010, sun glasses collection. This 35 piece collection ranges in a plethora of shapes and sizes from small to large, and she features both circular and rectangular shaped frames. The first time I saw Karen Walker frames, I was on one of my favorite websites, Shopnastygal.com (not to mention, they are straight out of Emeryville, CA) and I immediately fell in love. Karen Walker definitely provides great options for both for both men and women!

My favorite pic from the collection would have to be the Tortoise frames, with the funky geometric shape at the top (last picture below). Tortoise has always been a default option for me.  It’s a neutral pattern and can be paired with either black or brown shoes! This collection was released in stores in mid February 2010. To take a closer look, visit Karenwalkereyewear.com
