Rock On, Grandma: Style Blog Of Elderly Fashionistas Is My New Guilty Pleasure
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I love old people. Aside from their I-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude about life in general, their fashion choices never cease to amaze me. As my grandparents get older, I’ve noticed that my grandfather’s pants just keep getting higher and higher, but my grandma— well, she’s another story. For whatever reason, as she ages, she keeps piling on more and more accessories, I think in an effort to remind us all that underneath the wrinkles, she’s still fabulous. My ex-boyfriend used to say he liked visiting her because she had so many brooches, faux pearls and cocktail rings that she looked like she belonged on the Titanic, and that is precisely why “Advanced Style” is my new favorite thing.
A man by the name of Ari Seth Cohen runs the fashion blog that he claims “offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age.” Ari roams the streets of NYC looking for the most stylish and creative folks, and urges us to “let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest.” I’m hooked, and am now eagerly awaiting my seventies.
