I once spotted an older woman and her husband, at a carnival, just stepping off a ferris wheel. She was holding his arm, looking slim, relaxed and happy. Her grey hair was stylishly cut, her clothes were put- together...tasteful, colorful, chic and perfectly accessorized with lovely jewelry. I remember turning to my mom and saying "That's how I want to grow old!" Now I've discovered a delightful spot in the blog world, Ari Seth Cohen's Advanced Style (thank you Tracey!) And what a wonderful discovery it is. I've long valued the wisdom of those older than myself. In a group of women, the older ones are almost always the wisest, kindest and gentlest. Ari shows us something that's frequently overlooked; older women are often some of the most creative and stylish among us. You won't see any lower back tattoos or eyebrow piercings here. What you will find is quiet chic, elegance and artistry with a dash of adventure tossed in here and there.
Yes indeed...there is life after 35.
Respect your elders.
