JOHN JR. STYLE

today i did a presentation in atlanta. i shared my story. i discussed my early career in retail, my current interior design business, my blog and of course i talked about my love of stripes.

when i talked about the blog i talked about what and who inspires me. i mentioned john jr.. he was so handsome and had so much style, so classic, so timeless, so all-american. a bit preppy, a bit sloppy, no question, very sexy.

i came across this gq editorial that is a tribute to john jr.. the male model by no means compares to john, but you can feel the spirit of his style.
