Put a Little Glamour in your Beanie!

One of the images that made an enormous impact on me when I was younger was this 1988 Vogue cover of a model wearing an extravagantly beaded Christian Lacroix jacket with a pair of low slung jeans.  Her hair was natural and effortless with a bit of wave like she just got back to New York from a beach holiday and threw on the most extraordinary piece of Lacroix.  She was probably wearing ballet slippers or even better, a pair of Converse!  It was a very inspiring image for its glamour and whimsy.  

This is the image that flashed back to me when I discovered this incredible beanie with jeweled stars.  It has all the insane glamour of the 1980s and of Christian Lacroix.

  1. That is a really gorgeous cover. I love fashion images with models actually smiling ... they seem so rare these days. Beautiful clothes do bring us joy.

  2. You know, I did not realize that until you pointed it out. But yes! that is absolutely true, we don't see a lot of expressive, joyful images like this anymore. I know that I would have the same smile if I was wearing that jacket!
