This woman was leaving a cafe on the Upper East Side when I asked if I could take her photo. I told her that I loved her style and she told me that she dresses like this all the time. I love the way she coordinates her hat,scarf,and accessories. Her outfit is the perfect example of Advanced Style, it’s elegant unique and fun. What is your favorite part about this outfit?
Check out her amazing lace wrist bands and bangles.
Linda’s style icons are the film stars of the 1930s. She is inspired by the glamor of Old Hollywood and we are inspired by her vintage looks.Check out Ellen Christine Millinery for some great vintage inspired hats like the ones above.
People always ask me about the elegant lady in my header photo. I had the pleasure of meeting this extraordinary woman when I first moved to New York about three years ago. Mimi Weddell was an actress and model who started her career in her late 60s. She appeared in ad campaigns for Nike, Louis Vuitton, and Juicy Couture and appeared in several movies and television programs including “Hitch” and “Sex and The City”. Here are some great photos of Mimi shot by photographer Bryant Woodd. Most of theses have never been seen before so I am excited to share them on Advanced Style.
Mimi passed away on my birthday, in 2009 at the age of 94, but her spirit definitely lives on in the wonderful documentary on her life” Hat’s Off”. Enjoy this clip below:
