Site Love: Advanced Style

We've been readers of Ari Seth Cohen's blog Advanced Style that chronicles the style of "older folks" across the globe. So much creativity and individuality...it is both adorable and inspiring...and ultimately empowering. Cohen has posted a few times about the amazing Ilona Royce Smithkin, who just so happens to be our neighbor here in the West Village. When she moved into her apt on west 12th her rent was $27.50....a year. She's still here painting our cobble stoned streets fabulous both with her art and with her effortless confident style.

So when we stumbled upon this video, we just had to share.
