The Secret to Becoming a Grand 100 Year Old Lady

This weekend I had the honor of having dinner with one of my favorite Advanced Style ladies. At 100 years old, Rose has a very busy social calendar, so I was delighted to hear that she wanted to meet at one of her favorite restaruants on the Upper East Side. People always ask me what the secret to being vital at an older age is.The answer is that the Advanced Style ladies refuse to give up. They have great attitudes, keep busy, and live their lives to the fullest. Rose admits that being 100 comes with its difficulties, but she'd rather think about her next dinner date or social obligation than worry about getting old. May we all have as much, energy, style and spirit as Rose!!!


Piece of mind. Piece of cake

Hey guys, absolutely loads going on in this post which is kind of representative of my life right now. I seem to be living in a busy colourful whirlwind of tassels/work and photo shoots but I'm not complaining. I'm going to moan about the weather AGAIN. Unfortunately for British girls, we get to shop all the lovely beautiful Summer collections, but it's never actually warm enough to wear it! So when the guys at Lavish Alice sent me this gorgeous bralet (you can get yours HERE) I made it my mission to wear it on a cold, miserable Sunday. If I was a bralet... I would be this bralet. Its got fringing, dip dye-goodness AND it's a bit pink too. It was threatening to rain all day so I shoved on my trusty fluffy hat and teamed it with Disco pants (I know you guys are probably sick of the sight of bloggers in disco pants, but in this retched weather, there really isn't much choice for my freezing cold bottom half) I cheered my feet up by teaming them with my totally creepy spine boots you can get yours HERE  I also received a couple of gorgeous INKWEAR temporary tattoo transfers this week, I love the little feather transfer... and if I wasn't such a wimp then i'd probably go and have it done permanently tomorrow, Inkwear are also pretty amazing as you can now design your own transfer for those of you who want to see how a tattoo will look before committing! I'm also have a giveaway very soon which includes an amazing Inkwear treat especially for those of you heading to festivals this Summer :) Lots of Love as always Penny xo

Color Coordination in Amsterdam

The Advanced Style ladies have taught me the importance of harmony and balance when it comes to dressing. I think more about how to coordinate the different colors and elements of my outfits to create a more beautiful whole. The woman above did a splendid job of coordinating her accessories with her wonderful graphic coat. Style really does advance with age!

Workwear

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket If I need to smarten up a bit, I tend to throw on a blazer or leather jacket and (obviously) a pair of heels... any excuse. Photobucket Photobucket (Camo jacket vintage, shirt influence, necklace Forever21, jeans Topshop, shoes converse, leather jacket Topshop Boutique, rings assorted)

OK, so it occurred to me the other day, that I have never done a post dedicated to what I wear to work. I've posted outfits that I've worn to work before, but I've never focused the subject of the post around it... so here goes (you may be interested, you may not) These photos were taken really quickly this morning before I rushed out the door. I'm really lucky in the fact that I work in the fashion industry and also for a company with a relaxed office dress code, and like everyone else (I am human) I dont always wear sky high heels and bare legs, partly because I'd look like a bit of an idiot trotting around my totally casual work place and secondly because I'd catch a death in the British weather! My office wardrobe doesn't really differ from my "weekend wardrobe" as I don't think I'd feel comfortable dressing in a particular way five times a week... and I also have far too many clothes for them to only see the light of day on a Saturday and Sunday. This shirt was designed and manufactured by my company and I love wearing pieces from the place that I work. So yeah....  I hope you enjoyed it, and let me know if you want to see more of my work ensembles. Also, I did a little interview over at fox-hunting you can see it HERE much love, Penny xo

Debra Rapoport and Tziporah Salamon

This weekend Tziporah Salamon, Debra Rapoport and I attended a conversation between Iris Apfel and Tavi Gevinson at The Met. During the panel discussion Tavi and Iris discussed everything from what inspires their personal style to notions of conventional beauty in the fashion industry. What I appreciated most about the conversation was how Tavi and Iris both considered style a means for personal expression. Like The Advanced Style ladies they believe that fashion shouldn't be taken too seriously, that it should be fun and creative, and allow people to escape from the seriousness of daily life.

I have always associated dressing up with play.Growing up, my mom and grandmother allowed me to look their drawers and dress up in my grandfather's old jackets, hats and argyle socks.Dressing up can nurture our creative spirits and it doesn't have to stop at a certain age!

Fight Invisibility

Last night I had my final book signing at The American Book Center in Amsterdam. In the last two months I have traveled from Geneva back to New York, to London, Glasgow, Paris and now Amsterdam. I am overwhelmed by the amazing feedback I have received from people who have purchased my book. Thank you to everyone who I have met, who has told me how much The Advanced Style Ladies mean to you.

I started the blog in order to change people's perception of aging and show that there is much fun to be had once you reach 80, 90 and 100 years old. Women often tell me that after 40 they have started to feel invisible. Throughout the last two months young girls have reached out to tell me that they look forward to growing old like the Advanced Style Ladies. Older women have commented that my photos have given them the permission to dress up and feel good about themselves. I am so grateful for the impact the book is having on everyone and have to give credit to my own incredible grandmothers. I know the ladies and gentleman that I meet have surely changed my perspective on aging and given me something to look forward to.

Let's all work together and continue to FIGHT INVISIBILITY .

Take me back to the Summer..

Hey guys, this is a post I shot a few weeks ago, when the weather was insanely good and all I wanted to do was drink Pinacoladas and lie in the sun. Just as the weather went nice, the lovely guys at Pop couture sent me this totally rad summer dress. The cut outs at the shoulders and leg are so me and give this pretty floral dress a real edge which I Love! I decided to team it with my massive floppy brown hat (keeps the sun out of your eyes... practical AND all cool and floppy) my Miista boots which I got for my Birthday last year and lots of silver jewels. I love this dress and if I do get to actually have a break at some point and go away some where, this will be the perfect dress for evening Summer drinks. I hope this post can give all you guys in britain, a little reminder of all the summery goodness we had a few weeks back, but in the meantime go check out pop couture for all your Summer wardrobe needs! Lots of love as always, Penny xo
