At The Movies

I saw this wonderful woman at the movie theater and asked if I could take her photo. She told me that she was 99 years old and has lived in Manhattan her whole life. Fania is a Fabric designer and has worked with many studios throughout her long career.She has had most of her clothes for many years and always dresses up. While standing on the street corner, she pointed out buildings to me, and told me stories about what they used to look like.

She's gorgeous. The hat is beautiful, and it's so charming the way she wears it, turned up on one side and dipped on the other.

She's beautiful. Since everyone already called attention to her hat, I'll point out her other wonderful accessory: her earrings!

I was thrilled to find Mrs. Stone featured here!

I've known her for about a decade, and every time I visit your site, I say to myself, "Mrs. Stone is the doyenne of advanced-style, SHE should be featured!"

My wish has been granted!

Isn't she amazing? The most stylish dame of Gramercy Park.

Keep on truckin', Mrs. Stone!
