My God She looks Fantastic! Great to see a grown up woman with such a young style it really works.. Makes one wonder what she was like in her youth… How fabulous it would be to take a peep in her wardrobe. I would love to draw her in different guises at different times of life, light, and mood she would be a perfect Muse… In fact I would love to design a range just for this Woman!
Totally inspired and inspirational!!! I’m a 45 yo with a new baby and it is a great feeling to look forward to the vision of, say, meeting my 25 year old son for lunch in midtown when I am 65 and looking as smashing as this woman!
This lady is exceptional! Let her lead the way to rid style-challenged older women out of their sea of elastic waist polyester pants, St. John suits and “suntan” hose. She looks absolutely great and happy.
Now that is style. Took my breath away. I’m 26, a mother of two… I feel “old” for my age. I LOVE stylish, sexy older women like this, for making me feel like the “cool” part of my life doesn’t have to be over already. I adore your blog. I never thought I’d be interested in fashion, but since teaching myself to knit a few years ago I have come to see fashion as a craft, a kind of soul-filling thing, not just magazine fluff. Um, not that there’s anything wrong with magazines.
Her white jacket is so cute and cunning…I can barely handle it! I love the fact that this outfit would look ridiculous on me and many other younger women, even though it is totally youthful. Her chic, and hers alone, is making it work!
she’s really rockin’ that outfit. great sense of style, mixing different elements to make an elegant and unique statement. she’s really nailed an edgy look that doesn’t look inappropriate for her age. just awesome!!!!
I love seeing women of a certain age looking this good. Just yesterday I was reading the most recent Australian Vogue when I came across a lovely article about a spectacularly stilish 98 YEAR OLD woman. Just goes to show style is ageless, you don’t have to be 25, slim and pretty to look chic!
Her style and joie de vivre may be inspiring but what’s most impressive is that this lady is able to coordinate an ensemble with a very modern approach… the designer duds mixed with mall shoes. Who else can achieve that think- outside- the- box approach in their 60′s?
I’ve noticed that most of the posts focus on this woman’s age, as in “she looks great for her age.” She looks great. period. I wish I looked this good now, and I’m several generations below her. (Well, at least one and a half)
Fantasic – She is super chic, with a great air of personality. She knows clothing well, and can walk into any upscale shop, trendy or classic and knows just what to pull to mix a fresh style like this – :)
this blog is always fun, but once it a while you really come up with something truly great and you’ve certainly done it here. i can’t get enough of this picture, this woman — surely this is what it — this style, this fashion thing — is all about? is there anyone alive who would not want to know her? or you, for that matter? how fortunate for us that the gods conspired to have all of the necessary elements converge on the corner of 57th and 5th.
