New York Times’ Take On Advanced Style

My good friend Tziporah Salamon just sent me this great photo taken from The New York Times’ T Magazine. Some of Advanced Style’s favorite ladies including Tziporah and Iris Apfel were recently featured in an article entitled “Garb Fest” by Lynn Yaeger. Yaeger gathered these fine and fancy ladies for a tea party, where the women discussed their unique takes on personal and the responsibility of keeping up appearances. Check out the article HERE .

Summer With Debra

It was great getting together with Debra after being in Europe last month. She has been having a wonderful Summer swimming and enjoying weekend trips to New Jersey and Vermont. Debra always looks fantastic in her wardrobe made up of items that have either been “thrifted” or “gifted”. She also makes her own accessories including the hat seen above and her wonderful necklace, made out of recycled materials. Watch the clips below for some style inspiration!

Pretty in Pink

Now that Ari lives in the East Village, we tend to have lots of our meetings on St Marks Place, where there are several of our favorite snack spots (Chipotle, Pinkberry, etc…)
Because the neighborhood is generally populated by younger people, we aren’t on high alert for Advanced Style as we would be on, say, 5th Avenue or at Grand Central Station.
On this day, however, we came across this beautiful woman named Juliette Szylar- She is from Warsaw and has lived in the East Village for many years. She now works for the Polish Theatre Institute in Manhattan.
Her many shades of powder pink caught our attention… we love her summer dress, sunglasses, and very subtle hair tint.
When we complimented her on her style, she waved her hand and said “This is nothing!”
She fits right in with all the cool East Village kids… we’d love to see one of her other looks…
wouldn’t you?
