Throwback Thursday: Going for Gold with Dorothy Hamill


This week, PBJ is honoring one of America’s sweethearts for Throwback Thursday. Dorothy Hamill is a Chicago native who took home her first national figure skating title at the young age of 12. She made the 1976 US Olympic Figure Skating Team and won gold in the woman’s singles. As if a gold medal wasn’t enough, her career following the Olympics has been quite impressive. She has published two autobiographies, has been in Broadway on Ice, was a mentor for young figure skaters, and traded in her blades for heels on Dancing with the Stars. Hamill is also a breast cancer survivor. Her style and grace is flawless both on and off the ice. We think she is someone to cheer about!

We chose the above photo of Hamill for inspiration because not only does she look flawless, she is also stacking bracelets. Everyone knows that PBJ loves stacking bracelets! A simple dress with a fun bodice is always a great choice. Hamill pairs her dress and top notch bracelet stacking with fun earrings, effortless hair and barbie pink lips. We love it all!

Below are great pieces we found to duplicate Hamill’s look.
