I came across this wonderfully stylish woman while working on an article for guestofaguest. Joy Venturini Bianchi, known for her amazing glasses collection , said in a article for the SF Gate,

“As soon as I put the outfit together, then I choose a frame to go with it. I go to my eyeglass drawer; I usually don’t have a lot of time, so I usually try on two pairs and then decide between the two.”
“As time has passed, I find that my eyeglasses seem to draw people in, so that I can have a conversation with them.They have become a conduit for great connections, magical engagements with people.”

I had the chance to ask the lovely Leonora Russo a few questions about her style inspiration. Leonora can be spotted around Williamsburg in her signature shades and awesome apparel. Click Here to read an article from New York Magazine, where she describes her role as a neighborhood activist and read our interview below:

What are your style inspirations?
My Mother loved to pamper us. She told us to dress up no matter what and look neat. Don’t wait until you are in a coffin to wear beautiful things. My mother lived to be 100 years old and never wore makeup.

Do you always wear sunglasses?
Yes, I have a lot of pairs, Gucci, Versace, Ferregamo. They are very stylish. It just does something to a person.

Where do you find your clothes?
I go around anywhere and if I see something I like that is comfortable, I like it, I buy it.

What do you think about the way today’s youth dresses?
I have a more young way of thinking. My mother said always look young and be positive.
