5th Avenue Elegance

This weekend I scanned the busy block of 5th Avenue looking for visual inspiration. My eye was immediately drawn to this gorgeous hat. I snapped a quick shot of the hat from behind, in hopes that I could eventually make my way through the crowded streets, and catch up to the elegant woman wearing it. I finally found a break and made my way to ask her if I could take her photograph. I told her that I loved how elegantly she was dressed and that I wished people still dressed up as beautifully as she had. She told me, " This is my look, it's how I dress everyday." The Advanced Style ladies take pride in their presentation-notice how perfectly she matches her hat, head scarf, lipstick and earrings. After I finished taking her photograph, I gave her my card and we said goodbye. I get to meet the most amazing people walking around the streets of New York. I really love what I do and I hope these images provide everyone with a little bit of positivity and inspiration.

I like the hat colour matching the earrings and the scarves (even the lipstick). She has this sparkle in her eyes.

Yes, she certainly is elegant. I love the hat/headscarf combination.

Thank you Ari for showing us these wonderful women; I love this elegant woman's beautiful use of the scarf under her hat; very becoming and most practical. She has inspired me to do the same.

The second I saw the hat, I wanted it. I'm so glad you articulated some of the things that make these ladies so elegant. It's like a mini-fashion lesson.

That first picture reminds me so much of my grandmother. From raincoat to hat, that is exactly how she looked from the back. It is especially poignant today, as I am wearing her raincoat and missing her a lot today.

Thank you for this post!

Gloria said...

Awesome Ari! She is beautiful!

Esmeralda said...

Very elegant indeed!!!

I love her look - I wonder if her scarf is Hermes? She is such a Dame, as my grandpapa would call her! Beautiful.
