The Future Mirror
I hope this finds you well!
I often walk through town and just love to watch how other people dress – especially elder ones! And I find amazing inspiration in it when they style themselves in a unique or unusual personal way.
This is really a fun game to play!
I often take those women as a rolemodel and start thinking of how I will dress like and wrap myself up in maybe 20 or 30 years!
It´s like looking into a future mirror!
Would I wear a quirky dress like e.g. that 80 year old woman? Would I go for white hair or dye it purple? Will I still dare to wear a neoncoloured dress? And will still I run around in golden shoes ?
Will figure still matter?
To share some inspiration I would love to introduce to you the stimulating blog by Ari Seth Cohen.
It´s called Advanced Style . Ari lives in New York and this is his mission:
I roam the streets of New York looking for the most stylish and creative older folks. Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest. Advanced Style offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age.
Ari Seth Cohen has also done an awesome documentary about some of those wonderful women and you can find easily on you tube a trailer, which is worthwhile seeing!
What will your style be like in the future – will you still consider what other people might think of you?
I can tell you that much – you won´t bother anymore after seeing this documentary ;)
