To Grow Old







I love old people. Especially sassy old people with some flare for style. My grandma is one of those inspiring elders. She was the one who got me interested in fashion and encouraged self expression through what I wear. She taught me to be fearless in what I don on my body. She taught me when to recognize an investment and how to treat it well, and on the other hand seek out bargains that could be treasured. She has always had daring and creative style. Almost all of my favorite clothes that I wear today were hers from the 60s 70s and 80s. Creative colors, styles, patterns, textures. She has an eye for style and powerful enough of a personality to really pack a fashion punch. She wears what she wears, and wore what she wore with pride and through that gains even greater confidence in herself and her choices. I adore her and admire her.

I just came across a blog dedicated to elderly fashion, sort of like the Satorialist. Its called Advanced Style. Dear Golden Vintage just posted about the new blog and I dashed over there as quick as lightening. You should really check it out and revel in the wonder that is elderly fashion. They are older, wiser, way more stylish, way more adventurous, way more unique than all of my peers.

Also, I hope I can as awesome as this lady when I am older. She has the SWEETEST glasses. I am dying to get a new pair of glasses. I feel like my glasses are a part of my blody. A phantom limb?

Wonderful! Last week whilst shopping the art district I spotted two elderly women in their finest duds, and for a minute I was BORED with my youth (well not that young, 36) 70 is the new 20...or 30, 40? -Whichever of the two is cooler!

I guess old people need to wear clothes too, or at least, in my opinion, it's better when they do.

I love you.

I was just thinking about how I can't wait to get older. My fashion choices are just getting better as I get older. I love looking at the way older folks dress. I envy them. They're so mature and sophisticated. I adore it.
