When I think of how to be now that I am in my 50's.....I look towards Nora, Jade, Polly....and a few special others. Beautiful, strong women who reside in my Red Tent.http://www.amazon.com/The-Red-Tent-A-Novel/dp/0312427298
“Oh, how I regret not having worn a bikini for the entire year I was twenty-six. If anyone young is reading this, go, right this minute, put on a bikini, and don’t take it off until you’re thirty-four.”
Nora describes spotting a bag lady -- gray hair, mustache, dirty nails -- and realizing she's “only about eight hours a week away from looking exactly like that woman on the street.” — Nora Ephron I Feel Bad About My Neck
The two ex editors of Vogue, Jade Hobson and Polly Mellen always inspire me. They were cool in the eighties and they are still cool now. They found a way to stay curious, engaged and look authentic and awesome doing so. Both embraced their grey early on and rocked it.
I am obsessed with splattered paint....on shoes,sneakers, floors, jeans. I adore the Maison Margiela white paint splattered sneakers below.
