I was blown away by the style and beauty of this woman. Her bold black nails and lipstick reminded me of how girls my own age would go out. She told me that she was not doing so great that day, but I let her know that she looked awesome and she quickly turned and posed for a few shots.
This a photo of a woman named Mimi Weddell from the website for her movie Hats Off. I was very fortunate to meet and talk with her at the premiere of her film, which documents a decade of her life as a hard-working free spirit with style to inspire all. I highly recommend paying a visit to her site and checking out some of the clips posted.
My name is Ari Cohen and this is my very first Blog. I hope to use this as a forum to document the inspirational street fashion of our respected elders. I have always looked to street fashion for inspiration and since moving to New York four months ago I noticed how awesome so many of New York’s older men and women styled. My main goal is to capture examples of “Advanced Style” from the sophisticated and well dressed to the accidentally stylish and colorful folks out on the town. I will post submissions from all over so feel free to send photos and captions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I took the photo above in a Seattle park. I stopped to talk to these two Russian women whose style stood out against the gang of hipsters playing kickball in the field near by.
