Aha! So this is what happened to Maria Von Trapp. She moved to Paris and spends her days roaming the boulevards looking impossibly chic in a strict governess sort of way. I worship at your pumps and pop socks! Love it.


Blogger stilage vienna said ... (9:54 AM) : 

I love it when "older" people have great style. Unfortunately here in Vienna most people over 50 don't seem to care what they're wearing...
Her trench is exquisite, I love the color. And her hair is very special, too!

Nice to see an elegant, but not stuffy-looking older woman and a different silhouette.

I also am enjoying her skeptical look, or is it slightly disdainful?


Anonymous Mery said ... (9:58 AM) : 

Like a German-looking Glenn Close! I love the coiffure and the length of the skirt and manteau. She seems to be from a different era. She oozes strange elegance.
We need images like these to remind us to look and feel good and comfortable at any age.

Blogger Barbara said ... (4:45 AM) : 

Very ambiguous photograph. Up to the end of her hand, she looks edgy and modelesque, with her crisp-looking pale pink coat. But what happens further down? Her bag, legs and shoes are pointing to some kind of hidden tragedy, and once you've seen them, the look on her face suddenly isn't proud, but almost pleading and desperate. Is this me and my overactive imagination? There's a real dichotomy here - the pristine coat (and it takes a lot of keeping clean and crisp, pale pink!) and the plastic handbag and holey lace secret socks showing around her well-worn shoes. This photograph makes me feel so sad.............

I think it's a shame that you won't publish critical comments on your pictures. They have to be adoring of either your work or the subject for you to post them. If someone dares to differ you throw their comment out. I can understand if the critique is disrespectful of the subject, but otherwise it's less than honest of you to just pitch those comments.

Blogger 82Brute said ... (2:06 PM) : 

She has the most astonishing face. Such strong features that might easily be immortalized in a painting. She's fascinating, really. This portrait says to me that maybe she was reluctant to stop for a picture. Her weight is on her back foot like she's not planning on staying for more than a second. Her expression is guarded and slightly pained, though the hand holding the purse is fairly relaxed. She has no wedding ring, or any other visible jewelry. The jacket is very pretty, and looks like it's been hemmed, which is interesting, because the skirt underneath is so much longer and heavier. Velvet? Denim? Imagine her in the same coat with a floral dress peeking out from underneath, and a bit of a heel. Changes the whole idea of who she might be. I enjoy the fanciful journeys these photos inspire.


Blogger BlumeBloom said ... (2:22 PM) : 

I find this photo and style to be so much more inspiring than many of the other pictures.

I appreciate the lack of ageism in these comments, because it really gets in the way of understanding style. She is wearing a great coat, period. I didn't think her bag was plasticy, and I happen to love white bags this time of year.

But what is she looking at in such a wearily suspicious way? Is it provoked by something you have said or a reaction to some unsavoury event happening behind you?

Blogger ms. hershey said ... (4:02 PM) : 

if i can look half as graceful as this young lady when i'm her age... i'll be eternally grateful.


Blogger topher said ... (5:51 PM) : 

I agree with a previous blogger that she looks like she an older Princess Leia. Leia was a powerful woman who still had this caring heart–a really excellent balance. She knows exactly what she's fighting for and doesn't let anyone, not even a arrogant pilot like Hans Solo, intimidate her or put her in her place.

I think this is how an older Princess Leia would dress, especially in Paris. A structured, pastel coat with a hint of sheen; a simple, white purse; her high cheek bones, her close, but soft curls in her hair; her sweet and understated color palatte; the way the folds of her skirt spill out under her coat is just so damn charming. The play of soft and hard commands a delicate power that Princess Leia and this Parisian woman share.

I really adore this picture. And I love the fact that she can't be bothered with high heels... better to fight stormtroopers, I suppose.

Blogger Linda Wright said ... (2:13 AM) : 

I was inspired by your blog many months ago. I am 62 years of age and now publish a blog commenting on my way of dressing for the older (yes, older not old) woman. I live in Paris and manufacture cashmere for my boutique, so I am very much involved in the world of fashion.
This particular picture and its comments sooooo
interests me. Must say, I am more than amazed how the audience insisted on putting the "old woman" or "granny" name tag. Call me sensitive if you want, but I would not want people calling me an old woman because of my age. This incredibly stylish woman gave me a good lesson in elegance, and her age had nothing to do with it. This older woman of 62 thanks you for your "eye", Scott.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 AM) : 

I love that she is what she is and who cares what age or how we refer to her. It is ok to be an old lady if that's what she is. She dresses for style and comfort and it looks like she really did not want to be photographed. Aging is not a disease.

An Italian aristocrat! Not French or Scandinavian. Definitely Italian! I imagine a very interesting life lived. She is older now, and still beautiful. She doesn't suffer fools gladly. Self-assured. Classy in a way that is most definitely European. Amazing cheekbones! The coat looks almost like raw silk (my very chic European grandmother belted her coat that way). She hasn't compromised comfort for style. I'm speculating about her, of course, as are we all. A fascinating photo that inspires speculation.

Someone mentioned she owns a boutique in Milan... What an interesting lady!

I agree with the anonymous poster who thinks this woman is not as old as she appears. I think her hair and rather frumpy clothing makes her look older than she is. A more youthful hairstyle and a more form fitting outfit and she could be quite stunning.

beautiful face, but the clothes don't do anything for me. the coat is off to me in so many ways. the shoes, the footies, the skirt, the handbag as well.
