I’m going to have to agree with what other people have said: she just has on a little too much jewelry. But, I love her shoes, and her belt, so interesting. Wearing a few fewer accessories would make the great ones she selected really stand out.
That’s what I want to epitomize as I get older! The urgency to always look sophisticated and have a great sense of style! Love the use of accessories as they do a thorough job of complimenting her look. Even the younger lady at the left can’t help but smile and think this elder lady knows good taste!
lately i feel like all the women on this blog are either mini-celebrities, models, or could-be models. how easy it is for them to look elegant and photogenic with their willowy, wispy frames. sure pleated pants look great on that woman down below, but i would look like an oompa loompa in them. i sometimes wonder to myself if my size will forever prevent people from seeing how polished and elegant i really feel. and here is the kicker. i am a size 2/4.
this woman is a breath of fresh air. she’s still slim, but i can actually believe she was found by chance, and not calculation. she can be transplanted anywhere in time or place, and still fit in and stand out at the same time. more than any of the other women that have been posted recently, i feel that she is what this blog is about.
Please keep posting pictures of fabulous older women. The Italians have so much style and they do tend to put on a lot of jewelry, but that’s part of the look. It’s an inspiration. Keep it up! You can also see how the exact trouser length and fit of the garments matters so much. Even if one isn’t this sleek and slim, attention to those details can help you to look better. I’m in heaven over this one.
Very nice. I think the belt on the woman on the left is too much. It’s a nice belt by itself, but in this ensemble it looks out of place. Overall, very nice and elegant. It refreshing to see a photo on this blog and not have to say “if I were 20 years younger. . .”
Everything she (in beige) is wearing looks beautiful and expensive but not inspiring to me in terms of personal style- it looks like you could order up the whole effect ready-made (if you had enough money to buy it). Elegant, safe and traditional but not interesting.
This really is an inspirational post for me. She took an outfit that would otherwise be rather simple and plain, an outfit that you might see on your next door neighbor and not give a second thought to, and she elevated it and made it unique, interesting, and elegant with the accessories. That is something I am always challeged by. I always have a hard time trying to figure out how to accessorize to give my basics some oomph. It’s easier said than done. Bravo to her.
The elegant beige lady is let down by one thing: her hair. It’s heavy and old fashioned, and needs a freer, looser, even shorter, cut, like the lady in black has. She is perfect – love the jacket coming to the hip.
Fulvia Visconti Ferragamo, vice-president of Salvatore Ferragamo Italia and Giovanna Gentile Ferragamo, vice-president of the holding group Ferragamo Finanziaria. These are definitely hard-working ladies. They look great, but then again – do you expect anything less from the daughters of the Great Salvatore?
They not only look classy, but comfortable (except for the heels). Proof you don’t have to wear sweats to be comfy. Sart, please make more categories on your site, with titles like Classic, Cute, Edgy, whatever. I love the Jewel Tones and Twins shots from Paris, too, but I am past that stage. I would like to search through a trove of “classic” shots when I need inspiration (and where I live, I won’t get it from looking on the street!). Age is one thing, but the lovely woman eating an apple from a little while back would also fit a “classic” category.
Super elegant. It is so nice to see two women dressed in such a stylish way for work. Less is supposed to be more, but in this case more is better;the jewelry is beautiful, so are the colors. I especially liked the Chanel two toned shoes in white mixed with the beige. Classic in every way. Very interesting women. Would love to know them;they seem very friendly. They must be great employers. The belt is exceptional!
