Zelda Kaplan at 94 Years Young

Yesterday I met with 94 year old Zelda Kaplan and asked her a few questions about life and style. Zelda is known for her wonderful outfits designed from fabrics she has collected all over the world.She loves going out on the town and can be found dancing at the some of the city’s hippest clubs. Zelda told me that the key to staying young is, “You have to be healthy, one must be interested in the world, not in oneself only.”

Richard and Carol

I ran into Richard and Carol over Easter weekend and they were looking as stunning as ever. Every time I see this dazzling couple they are wearing something more colorful and wonderful than the times before. Carol has volunteered to help me organize the Advanced Style book.I am so lucky to have such a talented woman on board.Aren’t they just dreamy?

“I Don’t Want to Stand Out,I Just Want to Dress Better Than Anyone Else”

Today I posted two shots of hair bows worn by ladies uptown.The second shot is of Mrs. Anne Marie Bullen. I asked Anne Marie a few questions about age and style. I hope you enjoy our short interview below.

Do you mind me asking your age?
Up until 80 you lie about your age,after 80 you tend to brag. I am 85 years old.”

Where do you get you style inspiration?
I follow my mother’s advice. She only had three outfits, but they were all very lovely.The best advice she gave me is that the shoulders have to fit just right.”

How would you describe your style?
I wear simple, formal clothes. I never wear pants. I don’t dress up to impress anyone I just feel better. I don’t want to stand out, I just want to dress better than anyone else.”
