Part of what I’m doing to keep busy while Ari’s away with the staff camera in London (so jealous!) is reading all your submissions. Each of your letters are encouraging me to find more people with “Advanced Style” and to report about them for you. I’m so happy to be reading your letters, finding out what sort of diverse things inspired you as you developed your sense of style, and what references you look to in order to continue (or begin) to establish your look.
Apropos of this, I wanted to share one of my inspiration images (since many of you have been sending me yours)… This is my beautiful grandmother Ruth. She’s always had great style, and even now, at the age of 82, chooses eyewear that suits her style and sense of chic.
True the “cat-eye” frame is back in vogue, but I feel a little bit of her when i walk around in mine.
It’s less of an homage to a designer, and more of a salute to our elders!
Results of the survey coming soon….
