If you are even remotely interested in fashion and style then you no doubt are familiar with the what I consider the triumvirate of top talent who cover the subject:
- The Sartorialist is a New Yorker who shoots the fashionable — but usually unknown — folks he discovers on the street
- Garance Dore is an illustrator, street photographer and typically elegant French woman who smokes cigarettes and knows how to wear a scarf
- Mrs. O is the creation of Mary Tomer and follows the fashion — what and whom she's wearing — of America's First Lady Michelle Obama
But if you are a woman of a certain age there is really only one fashion blog that is an absolute must-read: Ari Seth Cohen's Advanced Style. Self-described as "proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age," it is a revelation and an inspiration. Two recent posts looked at the ladies below:
Bridget Soujourner (above) is 72 and fighting ageism with color and fashion. A nice little interview accompanies more great photos at "The Right to Wear Bright Colors."
My current favorite image is of this unnamed NYC woman who is "looking great at 98!" Can you believe it? I think I need to keep working on my wardrobe so I will still have something fashionable in the closet when I reach this age.
