Advanced Style: Best of 2010


These are some of my favorite shots from 2010.This year I have learned a lot. I have learned that you can climb three flights of stairs and still go out and sing and dance at 90 years old.  66 years old is the perfect age to rebel and dye your hair pink. Your social calendar and accessories collection increases with age. 98 year olds have more time to party than 28 year olds. I have learned that grey hair is platinum elegance and that we should dress for the theater of our lives. You can dance in your 80s, Dj at 79, and discover your creative side at 60. Canes are beautiful accessories and older ladies have more fun. Let this be the year that you follow your dreams, its never too late!

Happy New Year

Such an excellent round up for the year! So elegant, exquisite, and fabulous! I have to say the Issey Miyake lady was hugely inspiring for me. I re-discovered Issey Miyake through her. I now own an amazing Issey Miyake black pleated long skirt, shaped like a tulip, that I wear A LOT.

I tuned in late this year to your blog, but I am so glad I found it. You truly have a wonderful gift for photography and inspiring us to 'dress for the theatre of our lives'. Thank you so much for shaing. Happy New Year!

what a beautiful retrospective!

Trés Awesome said...

It's tough but I think my favorite is the woman with the leaf turban and amazing eyeglass frames.

Keep up the good work!

And Ari, you have only begun. Your beautiful people notonly show that living with beautiful canes and accessories is not only possible but probably necessary for many people. Thank you for a wonderful year.

Ani said...

Happy New Year Ari! When I turned 55 last year I was kind of sad that I was now considered a "senior" in the larger sense of the word. But, then I found your blog, and suddenly the word senior wasn't so scary after all, the folks you depict are gorgeous and obviously having fun! I hope I can aspire to be an 'advanced' style girl one day. Best, Ani

I'm thinking...Only in New York, Ari!

I think there's something so chic about hats - large hats, small hats, dramatic hats, turbans... I wish it was still a common trend for ladies to wear hats with flair these days! These women have serious style!!

This is a stunning gathering of shots from 2010, it is no wonder that i love checking out the latest hot discovery every day - these people inspire me!

Mel Sherman said...

I could only dream of being that fashionable now than at their age. I love the turbans, the bold framed glasses, and the pops of color! C'est bon.

I enjoyed this so much Ari! Thank you - and rock on grams and gramps. Because getting old is not for sissies.

aries47 said...

older persons are a work of art,fantastic! from Ontario Canada

Alexa said...

The fabulously chic women featured here are exactly whom I want to be when I grow up (which will be very soon)! I am officially inspired, Ari, and I love your attitude.

Vivi said...

I just saw a link to your blog at a friends place. I love it, it looks wonderful. Older people should dress more often in colors.

Isn't that Marilyn Sokol in the red plaid and cat-eye glasses? Wonderful actor!
I'm just loving your blog!

yohjibatt62 said...

I think this is FANTASTIC! As I'm approaching 50 (next year!), I realize that I have reason to believe that being boring at ANY age is a waste! I love their energy, their enthusiasm, their life! And I'm fast becoming the person I want to be and I going to be... I love this blog!

Marilyn Richardson said...

Love it; a real inspiration! What I don't get is the lack of diversity. You're doing a Woody Allen NYC -- all white. (Ok, I saw that one pale brown gent.) But where are all the older high style, interesting, creative, artistic dressing Hispanic, Black, or Asian women in the city?
Get those conversations going!
