Christina Viera:Stripes and Polka Dots

I was running errands on the Upper East Side when I ran into one of my favorite Advanced Stylistas, Christina Viera. Christina is a master at mixing unexpected combinations of patterns and proportions to create a smart, idiosyncratic look.She told me that she always dressed differently but as she has gotten older she has felt a great freedom to wear whatever she wants.

  • That's awesome – I think the older we get the more we feel confident with ourselves, and don't worry what others think – this is the beauty of older ones – they are grounded and know what they want.

  • That's the way to do it. This woman provides interesting things to look at in her whole outfit. Terrific.

  • I love her comment about being free to wear what she wants now that she is older. I just hope when I'm older what I want isn't sweatpants and mumus.

  • She looks very cute. Greatly paired strips and polka dots 🙂


  • Well done Christina!

  • Perfect!!!!

  • Proof again that you can hardly ever go wrong with black and white.. Lovely.

  • ¡¡¡Bravísimo!!!

  • ähhhm….für so eine frau ist das outfit ein wunder: die selbstsicherheit in der jacke (siehe schnallen), die verruchte vinage oldness im pünktchen kragen.
    eine beeindruckende frau.
    allerdings: der mensch, der ihr diese brille verkauft hat, sei für ewig verflucht….

    Besucht mich auf meinem Blog stil.werk…

    Everything wd work 4 me but the pocket detail, which wd make boobs look nasty, I think!

  • I SERIOUSLY want to know where she got her pink glasses!

  • Oh my, she is very chic! She reminds me so much of my friend, Anna, a professor in women's studies who just retired. I must show Anna the photos, as she is afraid she will get old and lose her style now that she is not working anymore. Wanda in Edmonton

  • Imi place foarte mult designul acestui articol vestimentar. Este in plus foarte bine realizat.

  • She looks amazing! I love that there is nothing that is "too young" or classified as "inapropriate" by these women. Their personality is free to shine in their style, and THAT, I think, is what makes them all so lovely 🙂
