Inspiration: Jackie Kennedy


Jackie Kennedy is my primary style inspiration and I have decorated my office with photos and items that remind me of her. The image above is of a poster from the Field Museum’s exhibit of her clothing and artifacts with images from a calendar I had framed. The dress on the mannequin is my favorite dress from my (small) vintage clothing collection. I don’t think Jackie would have ever worn a dress like it, but I still like it. On my other wall I have a large poster of the Andy Warhol Jackie print. It is a bit much, but since it's my office I don't really care.

Hi, My name is Jon. i've been looking all over online for that Jackie O Dress poster from the field museum. My girlfriend was telling me about how she missed out on that poster when she went to the exhibit, so I thought it would be a nice Christmas gift. I figure you probably picked yours up at the show, but if you have any suggestion for where I might find one, it would be really helpful. The best way to contact me is jchilde2@uiuc.edu. Thank you much! Nice clean lines in your room.

Hello, my name is Louann, I love the Jackie O Dress poster. I have been looking for that poster ever since I saw it on HGTV in a room they were decorating. I love how you have displayed it with the other pictures around it. If you could please email me and let me know where I could get one it would be greatly appreciated.

I have been given a large black an white poster of Jackie sitting in a chair with a magazine in her lap and what looks like she is holding a high ball glass, she is very young in ths picture and i'm not seeing a ring on her finger, this is a original poster in its original wood frame, I have not been able to find another like it. I was hoping some one could tell me more bout it. Please email me at louanne21@comcast.net for any further info on this huge poster.
Thank you for your time

Anybody knows where I can buy the poster of young Jackie Kennedy in a sweater and jeans with her head slighly turned and part of her hair in her face. That is the most beautiful picture of her I ever seen.
