Looking Forward, Being Thankful

Jean Woods started her second career at 70 working for the Gap and later made
her way across the street to Bloomsbury, a fashion boutique.
Daphne Selfe is the oldest and most beautiful super model at 85 with an enviable resume. She has appeared in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Marie Claire, Italian Vanity Fair, Tatler, The Observer, The Times, and the Independent to name but a few, and been photographed by the likes of Mario Testino, Nick Knight, and David Bailey.

I love Gillian Lynne's defiance of conventional age. At 87, she continues her career in
dance as a choreographer and producer with her own production company.

This Thanksgiving I am looking forward to aging and being thankful for my health to carry me there. Find out why in the video, "Fabulous Fashionistas" about 6 women whose average age is 80. Among them, a youthful shop girl at age 75, the oldest working super model at age 85 and a mini-skirt wearing 87 year old dancer. These women indeed prove that if the personality fits, wear it!

From the Comfort of Home

I'm always surprised at what I have tucked away in cabinets and boxes beneath the stairs. I collect small items for photo shoots and home decor, things that I am not even aware I have put aside for just the right moment. So when I started searching for my winter transition, I was delighted to see a bevy of vintage finds; several different kinds of antlers, my father's old bible, animal pelts and even an old broken gun. Pow! This years theme came to me, "Hunting Lodge." And all this from the comfort of home.
