Marilyn Sokol in Polka Dots

My good friend and Advanced Style regular Marilyn Sokol and I got together for a wonderful lunch at Eataly the other day. She was wearing and the most marvelous outfit and I knew that we had to get some great shots before parting ways. Marilyn is always so much fun — her wardrobe is a reflection of her sparkling personality.

  • I love polka dots. That dress is amazing and she looks amazing in it. Thanks for sharing, Susan Cooper

  • Very, very nice. We could all learn to take better care of our appearance and enjoy life instead of trying to look and be something we aren't. love your images of these amazing women, Susan Cooper

  • OMG I *love* that outfit! She is so beautiful.

  • Black, White and Red- one of my favourite colour combinations! And I want those sparkly retro frames N.O.W!!

  • Wow, I just love those fabulous red earrings! I wish they were mine. Keep up the fantastic work, Ari! =)

  • I absolutely love this!
    Great blog. Came across your blog and it's always nice to discover other fashion blogs.
    I'm a new follower. Check out my blog as well if you get the chance 🙂


  • Firstly, her outfit is so fun. Those mismatch sized polka dots are fabulous and I will have to keep that in mind. I always love pairing black and white with a dash of red. My favorite picture is of her reclining on that wall. The women you manage to picture on your blog are so spirited and fun on top of being stylish. It reminds me that age is nothing but a state of mind and really keeps me open to living life in a more spontaneous way. Funny how just the pictures on a blog can have that large an impact on someone isn't it? But it's true! Please give your friends a big thank you from me for that!

  • Ahh! I love polka dots! She looks amazing.

    This lady is so wonderful! And she probably has Czech ancestors. I am from Czech republic, so this makes me happy:)
    "Sokol" means "falcon" in Czech language, and it is a pretty common last name in CR. Also, many people from here have emigrated to USA in the past. I would love to know the story of her family…

    By the way, don´t you think being a "falcon" suits her perfectly? 🙂
