A Surprise Meeting

A few years ago, my pal MISTER MORT shared a wonderful photograph of a woman whom he had met while photo-hunting in New York. Ever since then, I have hoped for the day when I would run into her. By a stroke of pure luck, I saw Suzy walking across the street in Gramercy the other day. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I had no idea where she lived and if I would ever spot her. I told Suzy the whole story and she was delighted to pose for a few shots. We exchanged information and I can’t wait to meet with her again!

    She is beyond stylish! I really hope that when I am older that I am an eccentric grey haired woman with a crazy fashion sense. TO be honest through my wardrobe isn't all that exciting now as I spend most of my time in jeans and ugg boots
