Jackie's Style

Jackie Kennedy Onassis's style was classic and timeless. She was the absolute epitome of elegance. Have you had a chance to poke around the Kennedy Digital Archives? The eight hour mini-series, The Kennedys is airing this Sunday on the Reelz Channel. It stars Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes as Jack and Jackie.

Jackie often wore Jack Rogers sandals while vacationing in New England.

What better to go with her Jack Rogers then Lilly Pulitzer shift dresses. Do Jack Rogers and Lilly dresses line your closet?

Yes, they do line my closet!! In fact, I just bought my dress for the Foxfield races yesterday, and it's a Lilly shift that I plan to wear with my white Jacks!

Actually, they were Stephen Bonano's sandals, the original, and copied by Jack Rogers. See his web site: http://www.stephenbonanno.com/ in which there is a video about the history of the sandal.

I love a good pair of Jack Rogers, I wear them with absolutly everything in the summer (mostly Lilly dresses/ skirts/ skorts/ shorts). This summer I think I am going to add an orange pair to my collection!

I have to comment. Jack Rogers are imposters. Jackie wore Bonannos, NOT Jack Rogers. Mel Did a post on this. http://melissacmorris.blogspot.com/2007/05/mailbag-difference-between-stephen.html

That is my favorite picture of the Kennedy's they all look so happy and tan and relaxed. JR and Lilly will always be present in my closet! Can't wait to see the Mini Series!

There is a heated debate in the blogosphere as to the origin of this sandal between Steve Bonnano, Jack Rogers, and Steven Salario. I feel like it’s going to be difficult to reach a consensus so I urge everyone to just buy what you like!

I enjoyed reading the following post on this highly sensitive matter...

I also spend all summer in my Jack Rogers! Especially my gold and silver! There is a new Jack Rogers store on Madison Avenue that I can't wait to check out...Jackie is definitely one of my top style icons! She had such a classic, timeless style.
