I had the pleasure of working with the incomparable Mimi Weddell at the Lorick fashion show last night. When I picked her up she was wearing an over-sized tuxedo shirt, black leggings, and vintage Chanel shoes. Her look is both theatrical and super modern with a mix of classic details and exaggerated proportions. She is definitely a style inspiration for me and I look forward to spending more time with her in the future.
Today was a very exciting day. I met fellow fashion blogger Hanneli in front of the Marc Jacobs store. Hanneli, pictured above, and I shared blogging tips and scouted out snap-worthy people together. She also shared an amazing find from her own blog— see below.
Hanneli told me that the woman above, Mia Berner, is a famous Scandinavian writer and that she is always dressed fully in red. I will have to get some more information about her because I find her style fascinating.
I noticed this video while perusing YouTube, and it made me think about two of my favorite older models.
Carmen Dell’Orefice is 76 has been modeling for over 60 years. She appeared on her first Vogue cover at the age of 15 and has been modeling since she was 12 years old. Here are some examples of her developing beauty.

Mimi Weddell, 93,who I just had the pleasure of meeting with, has already been featured below for her wonderful film Hats Off.
Both of these women are perfect examples of advancing style and grace. They are inspirational.
