"Once you can express yourself, you can tell the world what you want from it. All the changes in the world, for good or evil, were first brought about by words." ~ Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis 

Maybe it's this dress. Maybe it's the location for this shoot. Maybe it's my fascination with her as a style icon and all around inspirational woman/leader/activist. Either way, it just seems fitting to wish Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis a happy birthday on what would have been her 85th birthday (technically yesterday, but I'm sure she'd forgive us a day or two here).

and i'm feeling good...

Do I have any Nina Simone fans in the house?

(Raises hand.)

Perfect! Then perhaps you can relate to this as well -- something about this Jonanthan Simkhai number, when I shimmied into it last week, screamed Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" to me. The glove-like fit, the peplum, the cheeky netting cutouts -- I just couldn't help myself -- I had to walk around D.C. with that song blasting for a few blocks (and then some). And man, I have to say, there's nothing quite like having your own brass section kick in when you're walking (heck, can I say strutting in this instance?) down the street.

Does anyone else do this? Have mini soundtracks inspired by their day or perhaps something they're wearing in a particular moment?
