If you read my last post, I talked about attending an amazing tea party honoring my dear friend Jean from DrossintoGold and Judith from Style Crone (pictured above). The tea party minus the tea ;) was cp-hosted by artist and designer Carol Markel of Femme et Fleur and Debra Raporport.
If you don't know these ladies I recommend checking them out! You will be in awe looking through their blogs and seeing their magical outfits! They are all a part of a growing movement of women over 40 that have truly mastered the art of self expression through personal style. You may recognize them from the blog/documentary Advanced Style run by Ari Seth Cohen. I had a blast being around such amazing ladies and I left feeling so inspired!
I consider Jean a soul friend getting to know her over the last year or so. We instantly clicked when we met and have so many similarities (She has been on the blog before here :) She is so GENUINE, kind and a breath of fresh air. She has such unique taste for mixing prints with layers of jewelry, usually toping it off with an amazing hat! What makes her even cooler is that she makes and up cycles so much of her clothing. It doesn't get more personal than that!
Judith and I met on instagram and her fabulous blog Style Crone. Meeting her in person was wonderful. You can tell Judith has a lot of fun with her clothing. It is extravagant, whimsical and classic all at once. She is famous for her gorgeous and unique hats that she pairs with her outfits!
Richard and Carol both having such amazing style and they've been featured on Advanced Style many times. I recommend reading about them here and here.

here. She's also a regular over on Advanced Style, read about her here and on Styleliku here.
Also loved meeting the elegant Joyce Carpati. I just love her braids and class, I was honored to be complimented on my outfit by her because I love her style. She's also a regular on Advanced Style. You can see more of her glamourous outfits here and here!
Hope you enjoyed! If you missed it, I shared the outfit I was wearing in my previous blogpost here. Seeing women be themselves and being around women that love to express through clothing just as much as I do was really surreal. Very grateful to have had this experience!
