Nan Kempner is my hero

by jennine on May 14, 2007

This morning, I didn’t wake up thinking that I wanted to be like Nan Kempner, but at work, Elizabeth pointed out that I was wearing the same outfit as Nan in the Fine Arts Magazine for the deYoung Mueum. Hmm… there isn’t anyone I’d rather dress like, or share a closet with.
I just need more ruffles. And a wealthy husband.

Nan Kempner = amazing. I love your version of the top, too.

Recently saw the exhibit at the Met and it was UNREAL. Nan = Classic American Style

How perfectly your outfit matches hers and you didn’t even know it!

gorgeous photo - awesome touch with the bright earrings. and the similarity is more than just the striped top… you both exude personality and stories through your ensembles, which is an art not commonly achieved!
