Style: A Presidential Affair, Part II

Happy Presidents' Day! 
In continuation of Friday's topic, here's another post featuring first lady style. 
What look at first ladies would be complete without an analysis of the most famous fashionista of them all, 1960's style icon Jackie Kennedy?

Kate Spade
has recently come out with a whole line of "Jillian Bow Dresses" in a variety of colors and materials.  This month I was able to pick up a lovely blue & white striped cotton one from TJ Maxx Wall Street for $150.  Keep an eye out on those sale racks!  Her current collection's bow dress (full price: $438!) has very "modish" red, black, white, beige, and periwinkle stripes.  Check it out on HERE.

White gloves
may be a little much for many occasions, but when you do need them they can be very hard to find. Check out the ones I've listed above, made out of quality materials and at a reasonable price.
