Advanced Style

Advanced Style is fast becoming one of my favourite blogs. The blog is based in New York, but does receive submissions from around the world. I love the concept - celebrating fashion and style at all ages. You can see how much joy and excitement these men and women get from having their pictures taken and being recognised by 'someone'.

One of my favourite blogs to date is the one below.

Mary, who I met on the street the other day looking sharp in Nanette Lepore, came to visit me at The New Museum with her friend Doris. I asked them about how they met, and the two let me in on a little of their history.

Mary: We've been friends for about 30 years.
Doris: We worked together at the Whitney Art Museum.
Mary: I was fired for insubordination.
Doris: I offered to help her fight for her job--
Mary: And she had a very high position there! But I didn't want her to have to fight for it, because of my boss. He was nicknamed "Lobotomy."

As Mary and Doris have advanced in age, they've maintained an appreciation for each other's fashion sense, and still firmly believe in looking their best every day.

i happen to love this blog, too. the enthusiasm for living brightly, and the philosophy of treating every day, all your life, as special and worthy of dressing up is something i can really get behind.

hope you are well in botswana. enjoy south africa, too!
