Molly Parkin on Life and Style

Last week I had the incredible opportunity to meet with the gorgeous and inspiring Molly Parkin.Molly turned 80 last January and she is feeling better than ever. We had a magical afternoon talking about her life and style. Check out the videos above to learn more about this fabulous woman.

  • Love Molly Parkin. She's a wild free spirit that we could all learn a few lessons from. Talk about living life to the max. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!

  • What a wonderful idea for a blog! I have always respected my elders. I get so mad when I'm out and I don't see others respecting them. I was taught to respect them and to help them when they are in need, hold doors for them.

    Anyway, I love this concept, they don't get the credit they deserve. I mean this woman looks like she'd be so much fun. She's so vibrant:)

    I am a new follower and a new fan!

  • Great photos. Molly is such a creative and flamboyant character, always has been. It was good to meet her again at your book signing in London and of course to meet you. You are inspiring so many women and men of a certain age. I always look forward to your posts.

  • Absolutely breathtaking, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
    I am so grateful, my dear Ari for all the beauty you bring my way.

  • Great color, & pic!!!

  • That must be a case of serendipity!

    "Girls, stick at it!" Yes Molly, I will. Thank you Ari for the inspiration I find each day on your blog. Molly makes my next 30 to 40 years look delicious.

  • Fashionmista

    Fabulous personality. Fabulous unique style.

  • I share her love for fabric and tidbits of trim. She is very inspirational in knowing never to give up because the best is always before you. Although, I am not sure I will ever, if I get to 80, be able to put a dent in my collection of fabric, trims and buttons in working out designs ideas.

  • Sorry to go on, but here's another great lady I'd love to see covered, although she's not exactly advanced in age…. Camila Batmanghelidjh. She is truly inspirational on absolutely every level, but just take a look at that style!!!

  • Wow!

    I met Molly Parkin last year at Polari gay literary salon, when she did a reading to launch her own (salacious) memoirs "Welcome to Mollywood". She is a fabulous woman. I have admired her for many years! Jx

  • I wouldn't mind living to be 80 if I have half as much fun as Molly! I love her flamboyant, colourful style and her creative, open approach to life.

  • The necklace is very unique, and very colourful.
