Lee Bouvier Radziwill - Princess, Socialite & Style Icon

Lee Radziwill is a fascinating woman. As the younger sister of Jackie Kennedy, a prominent socialite, royal princess and former actress Radziwill gained exposure in the 60s and 70s for her personal sense of style and the stunning interior spaces of her homes.  Her inspiring Parisian apartment where she lives part-time is ultra-feminine with elegant French furnishings, plenty of pink patterns, chinoiserie florals and gilded bronze accents. 

In 2009, Elle Decor featured both her flat in Paris and Upper East Side apartment in NYC; each filled with a unique mix of books, antiques, and treasures from her travels.

My Research into this inimitable woman has revealed her incredible style is swathed in glamour from the past. I have no doubt, it is for this reason I am so drawn to these beautiful images. 

Lee Radziwill loves Statement Earrings.

She decorates in a Chinoiserie style using Blue & White Ginger Jars.

She co-ordinates her fashion accessories.

She loves wallpaper and dresses her kids in Classic Children's Clothes. 

In fact, Lee Bouvier Radziwill and LCA have so much in common . . . . minus the European princess part!

Autumn Shopping Soiree Wrap-up

Hello All! 
April just got away from me and it seems so long since we hosted our LCA Autumn Shopping Soiree

I think I said the same thing after our last Shopping Soiree, meeting old and new customers is always my favorite part. When I am wrapping up the online orders on the kitchen table I often think about the customer . . .I wonder where will she wear this piece and what she will wear it with, and I like to think she will feel fabulous stepping out in LCA.  So the best part is meeting those customers in person and that is exactly what happens at these events. Everyone drinks, chats and shops and the room is full of women laughing and talking. The pack up and pack down is not so great  . . . but that's another story. 

Thanks again for coming and I hope everyone had a really happy Easter and some well deserved time off. Seems like so long ago now! 

Winter has arrived in Brisbane now and I can finally wear the Pom Pom Beanie. . . feels like I've been waiting forever! 

Much Love and as always thanks for all of your support for LCA.
