Advanced Style by Ari Seth Cohen
For my mum's birthday I bought her Advanced Style by Ari Seth Cohen. I discovered the Advanced Style blog a while back, and I knew my mum would just love it. She's not in the advanced category yet(!) but it is so inspiring to see women looking amazing at 70, 80 and 90 and to know that women don't have to just fade away as we get older. My mum loves clothes as much as I do, and I can't imagine that changing, even when both of us are grey. Admittedly I have been dying my hair since I was 16, and my mum has been every shade of the rainbow (including pink!) over her life so that might take a while longer than it should...
So much of fashion blogging is all about celebrating youth, I love that Ari Cohen's blog turns that on it's head, and I can see why his blog, and his book have been so popular. I love how exciting all the women photographed are. I admire twentysomething bloggers who can throw on a t-shirt and jeans and look amazing, but these women put so much effort into their everyday looks, it's so much more interesting!
Do you have any older style icons?
