Wise Fashion Sense~

~Lee Radziwill~

~Elle Decor- 2009~

~The early years, vacationing with sister Jacqueline.~

Her fashion sensibility for the past 10 years or so has been "just about as simple as a human being's can be." She prefers black~ "I just feel abnormal in color or anything trendy".

{excerpt from the New York Times Footnotes- October 22, 2000}

This little snippet has been taped to my computer{s} for the past 9 years, ripped from the pages of the NYT Sunday Styles section.

  1. That family has certainly produced a lot of beautiful fashionable people, with an innate sense of style. (although my heart breaks at the thought of the hardships and sadness they have endured).

  2. I admire their fashion style, simple, classic and timeless. I too feel the same as The Zhush the family has had their share of hardship. xo

    PS Deb look what a little sun does to our days, it gets us moving furniture around, and tearing up bathrooms etc... Enjoy!

  3. I love women that share a passion for fashion and find a signature style that works best for them.

  4. I think that simplicity and classic style always look chic...she is so tiny!

  5. Both sisters were simply gifted with an innate sense of style that always appeared to be so effortless.

  6. Debra,
    It is so much fun to keep little snippets like that. I enjoyed seeing these. I think of all the times I would pour over magazines looking at the gorgeous sisters. Style personified! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Lee Radziwill always caught my eye. I admire her casual chic style. Visiting late, been so busy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xoxoxo

  8. I particularly liked the Bouvier sisters in their bouffant periods I and II. Period I was more "up" and 60s, whereas Period II included flowing locks and was very 70s. Some followers believe Lee's Period I bouffants surpassed her more famous sister's.
