I have a special place in my heart for sisters. I have only daughters and I come from a family of all girls. You are familiar with a lot of famous sisters, I'm sure, like Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall, Solange and Beyonce, Mary Kate and Ashley, Paris and Nicky, etc.. But on this International siblings day, I thought I'd pay tribute to some fashionable sisters from other decades who I think were particularly chic.
The Acheson Sisters by John Singer Seargent
These ladies are also somewhat special to me, as they are my husband's great Aunts. The Ladies Alexandra, Mary and Theodosia Acheson were the three daughters of the fourth Earl of Gosford. I certainly wish I had some of their gowns!
