What I learned from Katherine Hepburn

Katharine Hepburn is one of my favorite style icons.....ever.  She was classically beautiful, independent, feisty, stylish and a trend setter. Katherine wore pants before it was fashionable or feminine.  She also refused to wear makeup and never allowed herself to become the stereotypical "female image" of her time.  She loved wearing pearls, but she was just as comfortable and chic in safari wear.  Despite being outspoken or maybe because of it, Katherine was an inspiration to many American designers, especially for sportswear.  Her modern sensibilities, effortless grace and style makes her a true style icon. 

A trail blazer,


 fashionista, and inspiration to us all, 

Katherine, I salute you.

What I learned from Katherine Hepburn: 

. High-necked blouses and shirts can be feminine and sexy with the right accessories
. A great pair of pants is tres chic! Add some flavor with a generous helping of your 
  own  style and you've got a winner!
. You can never go wrong with pearls............Try them in different colors, and styles
. Having amazing cheekbones and genetics is like winning the lottery.....seriously.    
   Katherine had them, but if you don't, work what you have with flattering hairstyles and  
   cosmetics that enhance your natural beauty
. Get your swag on!  Nothing looks better on you than self confidence
