Ilona in Provincetown

I'm finally back in New York after a summer of traveling and fun. This weekend I had the chance to visit the fantastic Ilona Royce Smithkin in Provincetown, where she spends the summer. I got some great shots of Ilona on her balcony overlooking the water. At 90 years old, Ilona is an inspiration to all. She is a fearless lover of life and a great artist and performer. I hope to have as much energy and creativity when I am her age! Do you have any older people in your life that inspire you? If so, email me their stories along with some photos to Advancedstyleinfo@gmail.com, and the might just appear on Advanced Style.

Ilona + P-Town = Heavenly!
Ari, this MADE my day. She is a "fearless lover of life" indeed. I still carry her words in my head, a sort of mantra to help me make the most of every moment: "Don't buy green bananas!"

:-)
Love to her, and you!
Jean

What a marvellous blog! I'll have to persuade my 88 year old mom to pucker up for the camera.

I LOVE your blog. I am 70 years of age and all about style. I do not have a home computer at this time but if and when I do I want to be part of your Advanced Style and send you pics.

I work for an independent research consulting firm in Portland, Oregon and study classical ballet 6 days a week for my chosen form of exercise. In my spare time I have fun creating fantastic looks for myself.

You are the BEST for creating this blog!!!!!
