Oh my gosh!This is definitley one of my absolute favorites already. Her coat looks so luxurious with her bag. The oxfords (although I don’t really care for the white knee socks)and sunglasses balance it out, making it more funky than antiquated. I really hope I can have this sense of edge when I’m that old, not to mention her hair- its beautiful.
the coat is nice but I’m not wild about it. I am loving her face and her hair. she’s altogether great but her face is what’s nice and the fact that there is finally a white-haired older woman in flat shoes, terrific!
I love this lady and her look! I wish I could take her home and have her change the way we dress. American seniors in my neighborhood are fond of elastic waist polyester pants, loud print smocks, and thick white running shoes with white socks. This lady proves chic is possible at any age. I don’t understand why the 73 y.o. reviewer got so offended by our compliments. No one is implying she should wear minis and stilettos. Maybe she is stuck wearing the same uniform of older women in my neighborhood.
Wow, anon 1.21, you sound very angry about this! Maybe we can help explain the outpouring of positive comments… 1: She looks very Fashion – the layering, the mix of fabrics, tones and colours, the jolie-laid stockings and shoes. You have misinterpreted this look as ‘frumpy’ – an easy mistake to make if you are unfamiliar with this most Prada-esque of styles. 2: This is an unexpected look on a woman of her vintage as it is not necessarily flattering, but it very personal and speaks of a brave spirit. 3: Her hair is just plain cool.
She looks really individual and that’s what i admire, the confidence to set your own style, rather than follow the herd, to avoid the ‘griege’ and the blandly classic as one ages and fashion choices narrow.
Let’s have more stylish and interesting older women on the site. Women of a certain age are virtually invisible and rarely cross the fashion/style radar.
