• Portrait of a Lady

    Top Drawer | Style  

    Androgyny is at the bedrock of preppy style. The term itself is derived from the Greek words for “man” and “woman”—referring to the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics. And yet, I find it still altogether sexy. This portrait of Cintia Dicker I discovered while curating images for my inspiration board, Collection, captivates the eye and the very essence of the aesthetic. That, and I have a predilection for freckles and club ties.

    I came across this image a few weeks ago, and I have to say that I have an unhealthy obsession for Cintia Dicker, she always the poster girl for preppy in my opinion, check out her Lands End Canvas images :)

    Concur completely. Well, not about the club ties, but short of breath on the girl.

    Cintia Dicker is one of my favorites - she also models for Land’s End Canvas.  If you receive their catalog, you get to enjoy many images of Ms. Dicker.

    Absolutely stunning. The look on her face is unreal.  A beautiful woman and a great shirt and tie combo…the best of both worlds. haha
