A Visit to l.a. Eyeworks

Ever since I purchased my first pair of prescription glasses my mom has been  telling me, "You change your shoes and shirts everyday, so why not change your glasses." Having several pairs of glasses is definitely a luxury, but it's also an investment that you won't regret. While in Los Angeles this past weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph co-founder of l.a. Eyeworks, Gai Gherardi. I have been a long time fan of her fun and colorful frames and was delighted to meet her and her equally awesome partner Rhonda. Thank you to the l.a. Eyeworks team for my new gold Flying Wallendas. (They are definitely mom approved!)

Work Clothes

When I approached the woman above about taking her photograph she replied, " Sure you can. I'm a painter, a muralist, and I work in these overalls."

Carla Palermo, Amsterdam

This past weekend, Lina and I traveled to Amsterdam to speak about the Advanced Style documentary. While walking around the 9-Straatjes, I came across a great vintage store. As soon as I walked in, I noticed the shops owner and asked if I could take her photo. If you are in Amsterdam  check out her wonderful boutique, Carla Palermo on Huidenstraat 4.

A Happy Coincidence

I can't wait to share some of my new street style snaps with everyone. Isn't Richelle Jones, pictured above, absolutely stunning? When I stopped her to ask if I could take her photograph, she took one look at my card and replied, " Of course, I know who you are." It turns out that a few months ago, we were both visiting Off Broadway Boutique on the same day. Pat, who runs the sales floor, pointed me out to Richelle and told her  that she should be a perfect candidate for my blog. I happened to be on an important phone call at the time and rushed out of the store before getting to meet her. It was a happy coincidence to run into her yesterday, walking down Madison Avenue.

Shine Bright

I was looking through my photos from the last Easter Parade and realized that I forgot to post a shot of this elegant woman. Her smile was as bright as her sparkling jewelry. I can't wait to see what she has in store for next year...

Costanza Pascolato

The other day I ran into Vogue Brazil's enchanting contributor, Constanza Pascolato, in front of the Plaza Hotel.  I have always admired her style and was thrilled to hear that she has been following Advanced Style from the very  beginning. She told me that it's so important to show images of older women and revealed that she would never want to try and look younger than she is. At 73-years old Constanza is a true Advanced Style icon. I hope to travel to Brazil sometime soon and hear more about her refreshing attitude towards aging and style.

Yoga In Central Park

Top thrifted, Pants from Forever 21
My dear friend Debra Rapoport and I took a walk through Central Park on the first warm day of Spring. She had just come from Yoga class and I asked her if she could repeat some poses for a few pictures. I hope to have even half of her energy and creative spirit when I'm 70.

Life Imitating Art

When I was young I would spend hours with my grandmother watching old movies and drawing pictures of fancy older ladies. When I moved to New York, I saw my childhood drawings come to life on the city streets. The women I photograph are a reflection of everything my grandmother taught me about life and style. A few days ago I photographed this striking lady in the East Village. Isn't she a wonderful inspiration for a new drawing?!!!

Vintage Perfection

This dapper fellow gets my vote for the best dressed man at this year's Easter Parade.  I have seen him around town a few times, always dressed to the nines in vintage. I'm not quite sure that he is old enough for Advanced Style, but I just had share this incredible look.

At The Easter Parade

I love going to the Easter Parade every year and seeing all the people dressed up walking down 5th Ave. There are so many wild and wonderful things to see, but I make it  a mission to take inspiration from the costumes, but only photograph those dressed in their everyday clothing. I photographed the woman above two years ago, in a stunning purple floral hat, and was excited to to see her this year in an equally gorgeous red one. I'll be posting more photos from the parade this week. 

On a side note I was featured on NPR's Morning Edition today. If you wanna take a listen CLICK HERE.
