THRILLED YOU WONDER?
TODAY is ONLY OCTOBER 23 and I am typing away to POST, TO SHARE WITH YOU DEAR READERS!
Some of YOU have SPOTTED me on HIS INSTAGRAM and HIS BLOG.
I thought THE BEST WAY TO SHARE ARI’s PHOTOS will be to have YOU all pick a HOLIDAY CARD for BANKSY AND MYSELF to send out.
Will you be SO kind as to HELP us CHOOSE?
If YOU would Like to receive a CARD in THE SNAIL MAIL leave your address in the comment section or send to my email at email@example.com.
I will hand write and BANKSY will give his LICK of approval with a KISS!
Winston will SEAL with a CORGI PAW STAMP!
TOP PHOTO will be NUMBER ONE, than number TWO (our backs) and last photo below number THREE.
I ADORE ALL OF THE PHOTOS, but this PHOTO makes me smile as WE both have our MOUTHS OPEN.
BANKSY for the JOY of receiving another CRABAPPLE and ME for the thrill of the BOY almost in a reposed positioned.
NOTE HOW WELL COAST AND KOI BABOUCHES MATCH MY BANKSY BOY!
Now that was NOT planned at ALL………..
AMAZING how somethings fall into place.
Than there are the vessels THE ITALIAN uses to COLLECT the CRABAPPLES from the TREE.
He had to SHAKE the morning OF to get a good SUPPLY for OUR STAR and THE CO-STAR does not even REALIZE until more than half way though SHE is carrying a PLASTIC CONTAINER!
OH GOOD GRIEF!!!!!!
GOOD THING ARI DIDNOT CAPTURE THAT EXPRESSION WHEN SHE REALIZED THE BIG SNAFU!
HORROR STRUCK HER FACE!
Kind ARI’s response…………”He Likes the contrast!”
WHO IS ARI you ASK?
AS I know some of you are OUT OF THE LOOP!
Here is a short BIO:
Ari Seth Cohen is the creator of Advanced Style, a street style blog documenting, in his words, the “fashion and wisdom of the senior set.” Cohen’s blog was made into a best-selling book, also titled ‘Advanced Style.’
Cohen’s grandmothers were his best friends growing up; as a result, Cohen “noticed a lack of older people in fashion campaigns and street style sites.” One of the Cohen’s grandmothers, who attended graduate school at Columbia University, told the young Cohen to move to New York if he wanted to be creative. The blogger duly began his photographic career when he moved into New York City in 2008, “as a way to better connect with older people.”
Cohen is passionate about his subjects and society’s treatment of older people. He has spoken at a conference on abuse of the elderly, attending with one of his subjects. “I think that people neglect, forget, or ignore older people and don’t realize their worth. They don’t realise that they still want to be heard and that they still have a lot to offer.”
BOTTOM LINE If YOU SEE AN OLDER or MIDDLE AGED WOMAN DOING AN AD CAMPAIGN for COSMETICS or FASHION we have ARI SETH COHEN to THANK for waking UP THE INDUSTRY AND TAKING NOTICE TO THE WOMEN WHO SHOP!
