This woman was as gracious as can be. I complimented her hat and not a second went by before she pulled me across the street to the hat store where she had purchased it. After my tour of the incredible shop, we chatted for a moment and I learned that she is a retired professor from Sarah Lawrence. We also both decided that you can never have too many hats.
My friend Pauline and I were walking through Central Park when we saw this lovely lady. We admired her purple hat, which it turns out was made by Marie Mercié,a famous hat maker with a store in Paris at St. Sulpice. The changing leaves were the perfect setting for this woman and her companion’s short visit to America. They said, “We came to America for a moment to smell the new America with the new president.”
Welcome the newest contributor to Advanced Style, Mordechai S. Rubinstein. “MISTER MORT” has been shooting pictures of stylish ladies and gents for some time now and it seems we have even shared a few of the same subjects. He has got a great eye for style. Check out his first few posts below and this one that I borrowed from his own site.
