    This “Advanced Style” site has been making the usual rounds lately and (to me) there seems to be a highly condescending air surrounding the whole affair.

    Isn’t it already obvious that the elderly know how to choose colors and put on hats? Yeah, I think so.

    By taking their photos and by stating the obvious (“we spotted this woman and her beautiful pink sweater…”) the site objectifies seniors and makes them as dull as everyone else trudging down the chewing gum-caked sidewalks of New York City. Pathetic!

    What a cool lady – and I’m totally stealing the ornate glasses chain idea – I have lots of necklaces I could use for that!

    I respectfully disagree with the anonymous blogger, especially regarding this photo, that the site objectifies seniors and makes them dull. On the contrary, we have a wonderful glimpse of where this woman is from, what she studied, what she enjoys doing in her current life. It’s nice to hear real life snippets about someone I would normally walk past on the street without giving a second thought.
