Sally Thornton in San Diego

I am in San Diego for a little while to visit with my family and capture a bit of California’s Advanced Style. Yesterday I caught up with Sally Thornton at Thornton Winery. I have admired Sally’s fantastic style since I was a little kid. My mom and I would see her shopping at Neiman Marcus all the time and always enjoyed seeing her wonderful outfits. Although I am based out of New York City its great to see that there are people with Advanced Style in every city!

    I love your appreciation and enthusiasm for our wise ones…So many don't have appreciation and respect for them as it used to be back in the day when we were kids…meanwhile they don't know what wisdom, experience and awesome personalities they are missing out on when overlooked..this is such a nice blog…

    She could be a very attractive. However her makeup is clownish. I used to think your site was designed to highlight beautiful older women. But, of late most of them are just ridiculous looking. Throwing on any old thing in one's closet is not my idea of style.

    I agree. That would be too much eye makeup even on a woman a THIRD her age. She looks like Ronald McDonald's mother in law! And she's already an attractive woman; she doesn't need it; at least not THAT much of it! It pushes a look that could be so fabulous into the "ridiculous" zone. Too bad!

  • Nice, but the eyes are a little too much. Love the polka dots!

    Sally has wonderful style, the outfit indeed is gorgeous. As a makeup artist, though, I would've chosen a little more subdued eyes, to make her even more glamorous. The graphic eye color is not so becoming of a woman with mature skin. In fact, it would look drag queen-esque on any woman.

    Sally is an inspiration! I was lucky enough to have waited on her many times at Jane's Fabriques in La Jolla and she was always, always lovely, kind, thoughtful and knew exactly what she wanted! It was a pleasure to see her walk in the door!
