Side Swept Style

I first saw this woman in a grocery store on the Upper East Side. I admired her gorgeous hair and elegant style, but she left the store before I could ask her for a photo. The other day I was walking on Madison Avenue and I saw her again. I knew that I couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by, so I ran up to her and asked if I could take her photograph. She was very gracious and I can’t wait until the next time I run into her. Doesn’t this make you a little less afraid of letting your hair go white?

    She is truly beautiful! Love the mint/pastel teal pashmina.

    BTW, Ari, congratulations on your mention (on page 56) of Town & Country's new March issue. I found you through that and have spent the entire weekend "catching-up". I am 50 and have sort of had a rebirth of optimism because of seeing these fabulous ladies. Thank you one and all!

  • She is gorgeous!! I think my mom will look like that when she gets older. Her hair is slowly turning white.

  • Such a panache, wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I love the way she wear her hair.

  • these women inspire me…I've decided to let my gray hair grow out again! And I want me some big glasses when I get my Rx filled in the next week or two! Fantastic…at last, one step away from 70, I am FREE to be ME! Yay!

  • She has beautiful hair, such wonderful condition – looks like it's been taken good care of. The side sweep reminds me of Veronica Lake.

  • I thought her hair looked great, then I saw the comb and was like, wow! Better than I thought!

  • Amazing woman !

    Super elegante!!

  • Gorgeous hair!

  • I just now found this blog and I'm loving it. It reminds me of my great grandmother that passed away couple years ago. Se was always smashing with her violet hair and jackets. Me and my sister got all of her jewellery and her little handbags and i wear them all the time! She always was a reminder that you are never too old for fashion 🙂

  • Her hair is gorgeous!

  • I'm debating letting my hair go. It won't be pretty growing out as a redhead but the white is beautiful.
    Love her color! YES it makes you want to go natural hopefully it will be as elegant as hers.

  • If my hair would look that fabulous, I would definitely go natural. I am not that lucky. Love her in the pastels!

  • I am 31 and started going grey when I was 16. I have been colouring my hair for 15 years and finally just started letting my natural colour grow out. I'd say that your blog had a big influence in this decision. I hope that my colour comes in a beautiful shade of white like this lovely lady's.

  • she is flawless and her hair is beautiful. the colors that she's wearing compliment her skin and hair perfectly!!

    Lovely style and color palette. truly stunning photo.

  • Ahh, lovely. I went away to boarding school at 13 … and learned to dye my hair. At 45 or so it turned gray. I stopped dying it at that time. Although not white I have a magnificent short grey mane that I love!

  • This past weekend a woman with white hair was sitting in front of my husband and me in church. My 25-y.o. hubby's not known to be very interested in hair and clothes, mind you- but when we left he kept saying things like, "Her hair was so beautiful! Will your hair be like that one day? It looked so soft! She looked like an angel!" Sweetest thing ever.

  • beautiful…

    I'm just getting my first gray hair, and I'm just too lazy to dye it. If only it could become as beautiful as this lady's hair!

  • She's a dear friend of mine with a fantastic fashion sense – this is only the tip of the iceberg! Such a lovely person inside & out. So glad you featured her.

  • Our dear friend recently passed away. I am happy to see these photos and lovely comments about her.
