Grandma On The Upper East Side

This gorgeous lady was on her way to pick up her grandchildren from school when I stopped her for a quick photo. She told me that she was surprised that I would stop to admire an 84 year old but I reassured her that she looked simply marvelous!

  • That's wonderful!! She looks much younger – fit and healthy!

  • Loving those glasses! Well, the scarf too, of course!

  • Amazing! Reminds me on Edith Heath. I saw a lady like her yesterday, but she was in a rush, and I decided not to disturb…too bad!
    Its a great shot!

  • She looks fantastic! Love the glasses and the animal print scarf. Tres chic.

    Hi Ari!

    WOW. Where do I start? The mix of animal print with plaid is perfect, especially the way it's contained with black. The glasses are absolutely perfect.

    Finally, the way she exposed the jacket sleeve between the coat and glove is such a beautiful, attentive touch. She is stunning, elegant, and a fabulous addition to your pantheon of inspiring people.

    Thank you!!

    Best, J.

    I wish you found more often people like this lovely lady.Many of your pictures show very eccentric styles, not mention some quite odd.Personally, although I appreciate the creativity, I miss seeing people who despite/because of their age have a sense of fashion, style, proportions and look simply modern and great.
