A Beauty In Vintage

The other day I met Linda Zagaria while attending a wonderful hat sale, put together by the amazing milliner Ellen Christine. When Linda was a little girl she couldn’t wait to grow up and dress like the stars she admired in black and white movies. Actresses like Claudette Colbert and Myrna Loy are her style icons to this day. Linda told me, ” When you are younger you tend to dress for other people, when you are older you dress for yourself.”She truly brings back the elegance and glamour of Old Hollywood.

Mayor Bloomberg at The Waverly Inn

Last night I had a very special dinner with Maayan, Ilona and the wonderful owner of the Waverly Inn. Ilona has lived in the West Village for over 56 years and she often gets noticed for her wonderful style and amazing eyelashes.She was delighted to dine at one of her neighborhood’s most popular haunts. While dining I noticed that Mayor Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch were just a few tables away. I got up and introduced myself and told them that they had to meet one of the Village’s most spectacular women. The gentleman were very gracious and they told me to grab a camera and bring Ilona over. I took a quick photo of this dazzling pair and we returned to our table for a night to remember.
