A POSTCARD Jackie O – a style icon




I know …I know…I promised you on my last post that I will write about queen Olympias of Macedon, the famous mother of my favorite hero: Alexander the Great. I find her fascinating and a major force on influencing the character and the history making achievements of her famous son. There is so much to say here…and I will. In the meantime, on a lazy Sunday afternoon, another famous mother popped up while I was doing some research about an upcoming collection featuring pearls. I couldn’t resist! It’s Jackie O. Although, she made pearls her trademark, and wore them beautifully, her style while she was married to the mega millionaire Aristotle Onasis caught my attention. 

Here are some looks of my favorite style icon Jackie O: Timeless!

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.  Well, these picture spoke volumes – volumes of style and glamour. Oh! those were the days….

Archangel Micheal 


In the New Testament ( Book of Revelations) archangel Michael leads God’s armies against Satan’s  forces, where in the war in heavens he defeats Satan. He is often depicted slaying a demon with his mighty sword. His chief function is ridding the world of fear and toxic energies.

Call upon this archangel as a strong protector and a support system.


Below:  Guido Reni’s Michael (in Santa Maria della Concezione church, Rome 1636) tramples Satan.

Archangel Michael is seen as a healer angel, as a protector and the leader of the army of God against the forces of evil. The Book of Revelations (12:7-9) describes a war in heaven in which Michael, being stronger, defeats Satan.

“…there was a war in heaven, Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But, he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven…”

After the conflict, Satan is thrown to earth along with the fallen angels where he (“…that ancient serpent called the devil, still tries to lead the world astray…”)
