Recently, I've found that I finally have a little time to start my blog - sadly, thanks to the economy - but, luckily I will have more time to devote to Martha Stewart inspired projects, reading blogs of farm dwellers in Idaho and catching up on all my celebrity beauty secrets. While I do have less "real work" I am committed to making my blog NESTPARTY | Guide to a Stylish Life an awesome distraction from reality one fantastic idea at a time.

{TEMPTATION} Jackie Kennedy's Birthday

Tuesday, July 28, 2009
I spent a good majority of my grade school years listening to fairytale-like stories about the former First Lady, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, from various elder family members. The beyond fabulous stories of a Presidential family immersed in the public eye and troubled times, yet revered as the fabled Camelot, had me completely transfixed. How could one person be so strong in the face of adversity and effortlessly classic in style ALL the time?

Well, well, well ... If Jackie were alive today, she would be 80 years old. So, in honor of her birthday (because who doesn't like a celebration) I've gathered together a few nods to her iconic style.

Tiffany & Co. Voile Round, $380

Earrings: Emerald & Diamond (simulated) - qvc, $60

Berry Brooch: Jackie reproduction "duel berry pin" - qvc, $59

girly you are speaking my language on your blog with your style. We should be friends! Ha! Those Tiffany sunglasses are amazing. I had no idea they made sunglasses (gasp!)!!!!! Are you a french girl? Love your name...... so lovely.

I LOVE your blog. So pretty. I just started mine and should have it up and running in a few days. Please stop on by! I do love that berry pin, according to Vogue this month berry tones are so the trend this fall. Hehe!


I think the fascination for Jackie Kennedy is mainly due to the fact that she really understood what style and presentation is all about. You don't even have to be exceptionally pretty to have that special aura of a style icon.
Oh, and Avian, my little zebra surprise - it's done! Come and see for yourself...

Have a great weekend :)

What resplendently elegant, timelessly pretty pieces! I've always admired Jackie O, even if I don't necessarily agree with everything she did (sorry, but First Lady or not, I wouldn't have put up with adultery from my husband), but I do greatly admire her tenacity and ability to remain composed and elegant in any situation.

Have a beautiful Sunday, honey!
♥ Jessica
