Jumping for Joy

 [Gif by Juan Amaya]
I am in Salem with Joyce and Debra to give at talk at PEM. Yesterday we walked around and went to a great vintage shop called Modern Millie. Debra had a blast looking through the racks of taffeta dresses from the 1940s and 50s. With Joyce and my influence, and a bit of coaxing, Debra broke her 10 dollar rule, and came home with three beautiful dresses. Debra was so excited by her wonderful new garments that she came back to the hotel and jumped for joy!!!

Always Elegant

I have passed by these two women many times while walking around the Upper West Side. They are always dressed to the nines with at least one common theme or pattern in both of their outfits. On the day that I finally approached them to take a picture it was  black and white. Next time I run into these elegant ladies I’ll ask them some questions about their signature matching looks.

At The Airport

I saw this woman at the airport on my way from New York to San Diego. I stopped and asked if I could take her photo and she said, ” Yes dear, of course you can, I am in my 80s and everything I have on is from the 70s. I told her that I appreciated how elegantly she was dressed to travel and she quickly replied, ” There is no other way.”
