Monday Obsessions: Jackie O and The Beagle

Monday Obsessions: Jackie O and The Beagle

It's another week, people!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  I spent the weekend mostly recharging on the couch except for a Sunday afternoon mall haul where I picked up some incredible finds for the spring wardrobe (sad that in Texas we have to think about spring in February).  This Monday I'm obsessed with a few things that I wanted to share with you all. Have an amazing week!

Obsession #1: A Black History Moment: Ann Lowe, a couture designer designed Jacqueline Bouvier's wedding dress for her nuptials to John F. Kennedy in 1953.  Lowe's story is incredible, and like so many black heroes, her story is not that well known.  Ms. Lowe worked her way through various jobs to finally land in New York to study couture fashion.  She was a coveted designer among New York socialites and dressed the likes of the Rockefellers and duPonts. Sadly, Ms. Lowe's story did not come to light until after her death at the age of 82. Luckily for all of us, a few of her pieces are now on display at the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington, DC.  Check out her story here.

Obsession #2: Mia the Beagle.  Maybe you've seen this already, but I can't stop going back to this video of Mia the Beagle during the Westminster Agility Competition last week.  During her turn on the course, Mia took a moment to soak up the moment and did some very beagle-like things like sniffing her private parts and looking generally distracted.  I don't know about you, but I've had so many Mia moments in my life where I intend to stay focused, but I just can't seem to stay on track.  I am 100% behind this pup's spirit!  Let's face it, Mia is all of us at some point!  Press "play" below.

Have an amazing week!
