5th Avenue Easter Parade

This couple looked absolutely charming at the Easter Parade this year. I wonder if they dress up all the time, or if the parade was an occasion to put on their Sunday best.

This past weekend Carola and I had so much fun playing dress up at Lynn Dell's Off Broadway Boutique. We picked out this wonderful dress and Carola joked that she looked like a geriatric Carmen Miranda. Carola is always so open to trying new things and she was a perfect model for this stunning dress.

Watch: 100 Year Old Ruth Doing Pilates and Stretches

Ruth has more energy than most people half her age. At 100 years old she makes it a point to stretch everyday and attend Pilates classes once a week. Ruth told me that even if she doesn't feel like exercising she tells herself, " Just do it" and it always makes her feel better. Ruth looks elegant no matter what she is doing. She says, "I wear lipstick, even when I have to go to the hospital. You never know who you are going to meet." I am honored to be able to spend time with such an amazing woman and hope she can influence all to stay active.

Lengendary Dancer Jacquie "Tajah" Murdock

It's always an honor and a pleasure to photograph dancer, Jacquie "Tajah" Murdock. Not only does she continue to dance into her 80s, but she also dresses up everyday no matter what. Jacquie grew up in Harlem, always dreaming of being a model and a dancer-She knew at five years old that she wanted to dance. A few years ago The Apollo Theater recognized Jacquie as a legendary dancer and one of her dreams came true. I hope Jacquie can inspire everyone to stay active and never forget their dreams.

A Technicolor Coat

I noticed this woman's wonderful coat from across the street on 5th Avenue. I quickly rushed up to her and asked if I could take her photograph. It's always refreshing to see a burst of color in a crowd of people mostly clad in black. She was happy to pose for a shot in front of Bergdorf's and even gave me view of the back of her amazing jacket.

5th Avenue Elegance

This weekend I scanned the busy block of 5th Avenue looking for visual inspiration. My eye was immediately drawn to this gorgeous hat. I snapped a quick shot of the hat from behind, in hopes that I could eventually make my way through the crowded streets, and catch up to the elegant woman wearing it. I finally found a break and made my way to ask her if I could take her photograph. I told her that I loved how elegantly she was dressed and that I wished people still dressed up as beautifully as she had. She told me, " This is my look, it's how I dress everyday." The Advanced Style ladies take pride in their presentation-notice how perfectly she matches her hat, head scarf, lipstick and earrings. After I finished taking her photograph, I gave her my card and we said goodbye. I get to meet the most amazing people walking around the streets of New York. I really love what I do and I hope these images provide everyone with a little bit of positivity and inspiration.

Outside Bergdorf's

Yesterday I was having lunch at Bergdorf Goodman with a friend, when I noticed that the restaurant was packed with Advanced Style ladies. After a delicious meal we decided to walk through the store for some aesthetic inspiration. A few minutes later I noticed one of my favorite ladies talking to a salesperson in the middle of the room. I photographed her on the Upper West Side one day, but neglected to get her information. I was excited to speak with her again, and after a moment I approached her, to tell her that she will be appearing in my upcoming book. She instantly remembered our initial meeting and was thrilled at the news. She told me that a few people had told her that she would be appearing in a book and that it was fate that we ran into each other. She kindly allowed me to take her photograph again. I can't wait to hear more about this gorgeous woman and share all of her style tips with everyone.

Beatrix Ost in Central Park

Yesterday I promised to post some new shots of Beatrix Ost. It's so hard picking which photos to include because Beatrix looks gorgeous in every shot. As you have seen from the video below, Beatrix is not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well. A while back Beatrix and I had a conversation about dressing up and getting older where she told me, " I think most people give up. In some ways you should always be in love and never say I can't wear that because of my age. It's all how you feel." These are words that we can all live by.
