Think Pink

Debra Rapoport has taught me that dressing should be fun.Every time I see her she is wearing a wonderful combination of clothes that she has either thrifted or has been gifted. At 66, she dresses for herself and doesn't worry about what other people think.Check out her amazing accessories,mostly made from recycled materials!

Oh wow, I love her top. So great to see ladies having such fun with their outfits.

She's marvelous..love her trousers :)) x

Lauren said...

Overall, this is a little too much costume for me, but the individual pieces are wonderful. I'd love to see some of them incorporated into simpler overall looks.

Finizia said...

Whilst I defend to the death this woman's right to wear what she pleases, I cannot say I like her outfit in any way or that she looks particularly attractive. I'm not against eccentricity in dress or indeed the desire to go against the normal bourgeois look that women of a certain age are expected to follow, but aesthetically her look does not work. It is not flattering, not particularly interesting but rather too cluttered and frankly looks as if she has tried too hard.

Sorry,hope you don't mind the negative opinion. Love your blog though, especially the woman in Dior from yesterday - what a contrast to today's photo!

What an awesome and unique blog! I'd love to be this woman's friend--you just know that she's got stories to tell.

Disagree with Finizia: I don't think Debra looks like she tried to hard. If you've followed her blog posts you can see that most of what she owns flows together. It is her look. She has combined elements she loves. It may look like she tried hard because if the average person took the things in their wardrobe and tried to combine them it may not "flow". Debra's style is hers. I think her message all along is to find your own. She's found hers and I have no judgement. To compare here with the woman with the DIOR suit is like apples and oranges. They can't be compared. That is the point. No comparisons are necessary.

alphawoman said...

Thank you Blogger for showcasing your blog! Love it and am going to be a regular reader from now on!

Amanda said...

I LOVE this!! Does Debra have her own blog? She seems like a fun person follow, haha! Way to be your own indivual and not be stuck in some box or try to fit in a mold.

Dagmara said...

Just found your blog and it is incredibly inspirational and fun to read! I've always admired elderly people who could dress fabulously- I'm glad I finally found a blog dedicated to the fashion of older folks. I will definitely keep up with this blog (and maybe even submit a few photos of my grandma?) haha.
