Advanced Style - Ari Seth Cohen authors yet  another blog about street style.  But this street style is unique in that Ari focuses on stylish "older folks".  Here is what he says about his blog...

Continuing with Tuesday's accessory theme, I thought I'd share some pix of some other accessories I recently bought.  For those that follow my blog regularly you know I have a shopping list of things I could use.  New jewelry was on that list.   Cheap & Cheerful Bangles...

The Junos is one of the bigger celebrity events in Canada every year.  We have some fantastic musicians. And while our fashions are usually much more conservative than the US award shows, it is still fun to check out what women wore on the red carpet.  I watched only part of the show on tv last […]

I love accessories. I particularly like vintage or statement pieces:  flower in my hair, vintage pin, brightly coloured bag or a big chunky necklace.  How about you?  How would you describe your accessory style?

I thought I'd mix things up a bit this Friday and bring over a tradition from my ramblings blog...  Follow Friday. This is an idea clearly stolen from twitter, but with a blogger focus. And as this is a blog I can spend a bit of time explaining why I recommend someone.  I follow a lot […]
