More is more and less is a bore

Ari Seth Cohens blogg ‘Advanced style‘ presenterer eldre kvinner – helt oppe i 80 og 90 årene – i fantastiske antrekk. De er litt oppe i årene, ja, men de har alle en herlig stil og flotte personligheter. En av  damene som blir presentert er Iris Apfel.  Hun er 91 år, men travlere enn de fleste andre på sin alder. Hun sier at hemmeligheten bak hennes suksess er nysgjerrighet. Se videoen under for å få et inntrykk av henne.

More is more and less is a bore.

Age appropriate I would say is silly, but please look in the mirror.Do not populate airports , places of sightseeing ,churches,any of such in foreign countries, wearing shorts like a teen.Sexy is in the eye of the beholder–be sparse with showing your flesh.

I think that saying women can’t wear color at a certain age says step back and die. Most important is to develop a sense of objectivity. I go by an instant reaction–if it’s negative that I don’t do it. Obviously you shouldn’t wear super short skirts. You don’t want to look like a crazy old lady.In short avoid those Baby Jane moments.

I think the important thing is to try to maintain one’s figure, so that the cloth lies properly on the body. I think one’s figure is more important than one’s age. I don’t believe an older person should wear short shorts, but whatever they feel good in works for me.

Da denne damen ble komplimentert for hvor elegant hun var kledd for å reise, svarte hun raskt:

There is no other way.
