I ♥ Your American Style: Nancy Reagan

I’ve been wanting to do a post on Nancy Reagan for some time, and as we are now in the season for wearing red, it seems like a good moment to do so. I love Nancy Reagan’s style. To me it’s very Marc Jacobs – happy, American, not overtly sexy, decorative, sweet and chic. And don’t let her dated hairstyle put you off – it’s not about the hair. It’s about a pussycat bow, a floral print, a covered chest, a ruffle, a Chanel-inspired Adolfo jacket, and of course, the color red.

What a classy lady! She is the perfect example of a great First Lady. I love red on a modest, wholesome, and genuine lady.

Gah, no. Reactionary, mimsy, faux twee. No.

Growing up in the 80's, Nancy Reagan always reminded me of my grandma. They had the same eyes, hair, body type, and grace. My grandma passed away 3 months ago and these pictures really make me think of her. I will be sad when it is Mrs. Reagan's time to go too.

There is always something that bothers me about Nancy. She always seems meekly and the constantly adoring wife. So much body language. Not an inspiring person for a girl growing up in the 60's or for now that matter!

Loooove this. The second and fourth pictures are my favorites. I have been indecisive about the trim of a boucle jacket I ordered from my tailor, but the navy and white trim on the red jacket in the fourth picture is so much fun, I'm going to have Mr Soong try it. Happy Christmas.
