I was baby sitting my “adopted” 7 year old grandson Dylen. He was showing me how to use my computer . . . (no smart remarks please). When he saw the picture of me that is on ALL my internet profile pages and blog he asked, and I quote: “Is that you when you were younger?”
You see, I’ve let my natural hair color grow out. It’s grey and short and spikey.
The inspiration to do so was ultimately one of my favorite blogs Advanced Style. Take a look at a trailer for a documentary on Advanced Style*. INSPIRING!
Maybe Dylen will take a new picture of me after I get my wardrobe together . . .
*Ari Seth Cohen and Lina Pliolplyte have been filming and interviewing the amazing ladies of Advanced Style for over three years now. After receiving funding on Kickstarter.com they are now finalizing post-production and editing of their film.””The Advanced Style Documentary which will be entered into the 2013 film festival circuit and out in theaters soon after.

The hardest part of showing that true chic does not dim with age? “Trying to explain what a blog is.”” New York Times
