Hi. My name is Imogen and my blog is Tia Cherie. It's wonderful to have this opportunity to post for Ilana while she is away. I always think it's interesting the way in which ideas for posts come to us bloggers. A few weeks ago a work colleague noticed my interest in fashion and showed me a book called Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years. I was completely amazed by the lovely treasures contained within this book. I've only ever paid moderate interest to Jackie Kennedy's style but now I respect her as a true style icon. The dresses are so beautiful and the use of often vibrant colours is so pretty. I love the elegance and class. It's interesting to observe that so many of her looks are timeless and not all that dissimilar from what we see in the shops today. The book offered a wonderful snapshot of her famous dresses. I love how much history and character is display by each piece. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share some of my favourite looks with you on My Modern Vintage since, as we all know, Ilana loves vintage fashion.
