Jackie's Signature Sunglasses


Yesterday, the minnies and I saw the New York City Ballet perform at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. After enjoying a delicious brunch and some time on the terrace enjoying the gorgeous spring day, my little professional shopper in training pointed out that we had enough time to visit the gift shop before the show. Of course, I'll never pass up the opportunity to visit a gift shop.


Imagine how excited I was to see a collection of replica jewelry and accessories that Jackie Kennedy wore featured in the shop. Among my favorites are the iconic triple strand pearls and emerald drop earrings.


Bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and other items are displayed with pictures of Jackie wearing the particular item. Details about the item are also included.


Jackie Kennedy's Signature Sunglasses are one of her most famous accessories. I just had to pick up a pair of these to help channel my inner-Jackie!

Here's a little bit of information about the sunglasses.

Jacqueline Kennedy is one of the world's most famous style icons, and no single look was more famous than her oversized sunglasses. Often worn as a fashion statement even when sunglasses weren't necessary, the larger lense size rose out of necessity. She would have her favorite symbol - The Greek Key - placed on all of them. Jackie's signature Greek Key detail, a symbol of eternal life, is mortised into the arm so it will not snag, and is bolted through the arm rather than glued.



If a trip to Washington, DC is not in your immediate future, you can peruse this gorgeous collection at the Kennedy Center's online gift shop.
