Folk Artist Malcah Zeldis Explains How Dressing Up Healed Her Pain

Malcah Zeldis is a celebrated  folk artist with paintings in museums all over the country.She has always used painting as means of self expression, but severe hip pain left her unable to sit for long periods of time. Malcah began to discover creative inspiration in the many colorful pieces of clothing she had collected and found in thrift stores over the years. Dressing became her new form of expression and healing. Watch the video above to hear Malcah's inspiring story in her own words.(I am happy to say that Malcah is feeling much better now and has returned to creating her amazing works of art.)

I was psyched out of my tiny mind when the guys at Gorgeous Couture got in touch about a post they wanted to do with Fashion-Fade. Now, normally I'd think that their stuff was far too glam for my rat tail hair, ankle boot wearing way of dressing (and by dressing I mean whatever falls out of my wardrobe first) but the challenge was to style a dress of my choice in three different ways.  I chose the diagonal monochrome dress and was pretty happy with my choice you can get yours HERE. The price points are a little higher than some other online retailers that I've used before BUT I got the extra small and the fit was so good it was as if it had been made to measure, and hopefully I've shown that the dresses are pretty versatile! Anyways, seeing as I'm not glam in anyway shape or form, I decided to keep the styling pretty casual, bar one outfit where I teamed the dress with my amazing new Jeffrey Campbell wooden wedges (a gift from a rather lovely boyfriend) as this is something I'd wear if I were ever invited to a respectable social occasion (I wouldn't class my usual haunts as respectable) The first look is slightly dressy, look two is more for days out with friends and look three is how I'd wear the dress for work. So yeah, I hope you liked how I styled it and make sure to check out the Gorgeous Couture website! And don't forget to check out their blogpost with extra shots :)

You're probably bored of me apologising for my lack of posts (I am actually sorry) But my backlog seems to be calming down now and I'll be more regular in now time. Lots of Love as always Penny xo

Linda Rodin

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing stylist turned beauty guru, Linda Rodin, outside her NYC apartment. Besides working full time on her skincare line, Rodin olio lusso, Linda has become a favorite among fashion bloggers, and is currently featured in the   J.Crew catalog. Linda believes that lots of sleep and a good diet are two of the keys to aging gracefully.

When it comes to looking older she says,"First of all it's not easy getting older. It catches up on you all of a sudden. It's definitely more interesting to let yourself go through the process than do a bunch of surgery and get addicted to a face that's not even yours. You can't chase youth. You'll just look older with a face lift."  Check out more of Linda's story and her amazing  Rodin olio lusso products HERE.

( For those of you who asked about Linda's lip color she is wearing Make Up Forever, #16 pencil, then Make Up Forever lipstick #36. Under both: Fran Wilson's green mood matcher)

Aging Gracefully At 101 Years Old

Ruth is turning 101 next month and she is looking forward to celebrating with all of her friends and family. She is a wonderful example for us all to take care of ourselves and to age gracefully. I was just looking through the September issue of Vogue and couldn't spot one photograph that revealed a line, wrinkle, or even pores on any of the model's faces. There is definitely a photoshop epidemic going on. Everyone is so concerned with aging and looking younger, but wouldn't you rather see Ruth advertising a beauty brand  than a photo-shopped 20 year old with no character or expression?

The One and Only Iris Apfel

Yesterday I had the privilege of not only having lunch with an amazing 100 year old, but breakfast with the legendary Iris Apfel as well. Iris is as busy as ever working on her handbag line, a line of jewelry for HSN, and a collaboration with eye-bobs. At 90 years old Iris is proof that keeping active is the secret to aging gracefully.

 (Dress c/o Pop Couture, belt vintage, bag BAIA, boots vintage, sunglasses Ebay)

SO, I'm really busy again so sorry about that. I look like a complete awkward duckling in these photos....it may have had something to do with the fact that I was horrendously ill before my Asia trip (dedication right there) The hat and sunglasses are not only to make me look vaguely presentable/hide my sickening face, but also to shield me from the sun whilst dealing with an insane temperature, not ideal. In other news, the bag is the bag that I've previously posted about and is obviously one of my faves. It's by BAIA, pretty much the best leather bag and accessories brand owned/run/designed by my good friend Susy so go like her page if you want to be nice and feel so inclined.... she's worked ever so hard and her bags are INSANE. Plus on this occasion, it went perfectly with my trashy vintage boots! The glasses were a complete bargain Ebay find that I bought to take on my travels. The dress was sent to me by the dolls at Pop Couture, you know the drill; I love them and I love their clothes so basically you should go check them out :) I wore my dress to a BBQ and maybe if the weather was slightly better in Manchester, Id be wearing it again. But unfortunately we're not having a Summer. Thanks Mother Nature.

Anyyyyyways, I promise to blog more this week and post photos of my Asian adventure as I've had a few requests from you lovely people. Love as always, Penny xo
