A Serendipitous Meeting


Yesterday I was walking around the Upper West Side when I saw this beautiful woman. I asked if I could take her photo and handed her a business card. She took one glance at the card and exclaimed, " Advanced Style, you took my photograph about two years in Battery Park." I love running into people I have photographed before and this was surely serendipitous as I hoped that we would meet again some day. I am so excited to have a new Advanced Style muse to share with everyone. At 82 years old Claire not only has great style, but a wonderful spirit and zest for life.CLICK HERE to check out a great story about Claire and her best friend's in The New York Times and enjoy the video and photos below.

Most people think that as you get older, your fashion choices get more limited, but I think it goes both ways. There is so much I'm looking forward to wearing when I'm older!

Bravo!You've got a great eye ;)
Let me pay you a compliment I reserve for only a few...
my grandmother, Stella, would have loved you...and she didn't love many!

Your blog is one of my favourites, the women you shoot are so much more vivacious than the usual suspects on all the other street style blogs.

C'est formidable! Thank you for really *seeing* older people, usually invisible to most.

Frances said...

Think I have spotted you on the Upper West Side, and think that I had better make sure to dress more stylishly before I see you again!

Seriously...your posts are great fun.

Claire is absolutely beautiful. Ari, you have such a valuable blog here, I think it's really important that these truly stylish women and men are acknowledged. I live in Australia and you are making me think seriously about visiting New York.

What a stunning woman! I want to be her when I grow up (well, in about 20 years). The green coat is a classic. I love that you find these wonderful people, Ari. So inspiring! I work with their peers in L.A. and experience the same thing you observe - attitude is everything!
