Blog Talk

Today was a very exciting day. I met fellow fashion blogger Hanneli in front of the Marc Jacobs store. Hanneli, pictured above, and I shared blogging tips and scouted out snap-worthy people together. She also shared an amazing find from her own blog— see below.

Hanneli told me that the woman above, Mia Berner, is a famous Scandinavian writer and that she is always dressed fully in red. I will have to get some more information about her because I find her style fascinating.

Advanced Models

I noticed this video while perusing YouTube, and it made me think about two of my favorite older models.

Carmen Dell’Orefice is 76 has been modeling for over 60 years. She appeared on her first Vogue cover at the age of 15 and has been modeling since she was 12 years old. Here are some examples of her developing beauty.

…and in a more recent ad:

Mimi Weddell, 93,who I just had the pleasure of meeting with, has already been featured below for her wonderful film Hats Off.

Both of these women are perfect examples of advancing style and grace. They are inspirational.

Shopper’s Delight

I snapped this photo in the Goodwill thrift store on the Upper East Side. I stopped this beautiful lady because of her elegant, pulled-back hair and stylish and fun outfit. If you look closer you can see little mythic creatures dancing around on her skirt. I also love the big dramatic collar on her blouse. We spoke for a while about her experience in New York teaching children. She had so much grace and charm and seemed to know everyone in the store. I hope to run into her again.
