Happy New Year: Best of 2013

2013 has been such an incredible year. I never dreamed that a little blog which I started five years ago would allow me the opportunity to travel the world and meet so many amazing and inspiring people. I am truly thankful for everyone who visits  and comments regularly. Your encouragement and support are the driving force behind a growing movement and shift in how we view the aging process. Here are some of my favorite photos from 2013. Thanks so much for all of your continued support and have a happy, healthy, and safe New Year!!!!!

  • Wyjątkowego Nowego Roku 🙂

  • Wishing you another good and successful year Ari. You bring us a lot of joy, thank you for all your effort! 🙂

  • Just love your blog. I follow you through Facebook and then over to the blog. Love your inspiring advance style women. As I age I too hope I will continue to have style and be rememberable. Keep up the good work!

  • HOW can you have a "best of" without Ilona?! PLEASE amend this list to include her. THANKS for your wonderful work, Ari! Happy New Year, honey! 🙂 Gwyn PS: If you're ever in Vancouver, you gotta see my walk in closet the hubby built to house my accessories collection! 🙂

  • Happy New Year, and thank you for taking the time to bring us all these fabulous broads.

  • I've just read about your blog in Polish magazine " Twój styl". It was very inspiring and otimistic text for me. Thanks for your blog! Happy New Year!

  • I discovered your blog a few months ago and have enjoyed it every since. I practically live in sweat-sets and have no fashion sense. My fall-back look for dress-up is usually black. But since coming to your blog I am inspired to branch out and think accessorizing like I've never done before in my 70 plus years.

    Thanks for sharing your photos of these spirited women. One day I hope to have the guts to let my inner artist show up in my wardrobe like your photo subjects do. Happy 2014!

  • Love to see these dazzled dames. I am inspired! As a teacher/librarian in the High School of FASHION in NYC, I am inspired by the style if my students.I can't wait to show them this!

  • Please let me know when you are in NYC, if you can come and talk to our photography and FASHION classes. HSFI is on 24th Street btwn 7th & 8th…

  • I love all of these Ari, but there's a special place in my heart for the lady in the paint spattered overall. She's SO ME! This 63-year-old thanks you for showing us ourselves – our beautiful aging selves.

    Hugs,
    Kay

  • Another fabulous year. Thank you for all your inspirational photos. Happy New Year, Ari!

  • Great line up of wonderfully stylish people! (Ari, what an impossible task to choose from an amazing line up of outstanding 2013 women & men. Like parents, one isn't supposed to have a favorite child … ) For the record, 14 of the 20 were wearing glasses and looked terrific! 3 cheers for a fabulous 2014.

  • Ari, THANK YOU for amending your list to include our delightful Ilona and a few more wonderful princesses! Happy New Year 🙂 Gwyn

  • I adore this blog! I am 33 and not only does this forum make me look forward to aging (don't go gently, go fabulously!), it emboldens me to unleash the flower-crown-and-caftan goddess within! xoxo

  • Lots of my favourites in there – I especially love the photo of Christina. Here's to another year of capturing the most stylish silver-haired dames on the planet. Happy New Year Ari!

  • Happy New Year, Ari! I love your blog.

  • Thanks Ari, for encouraging me to reveal more of my pizzazz, which I've been toning down to be more 'age appropriate'. These women should be appearing on the pages of glossy magazines. Thank goodness for your blog!
