One of the high points of my trip to BlogWorld was meeting Ari Seth Cohen, the proprietor of Advance Style. Ari blogs about the silver haired set and hip fashion. Kim McAllister from Emergiblog tagged along when I met up with Ari at the Blogger booth. She tweeted in advance of our arrival, “ We will be there Ari Seth Cohen- glamorous ladies of certain age incoming !!!”
Meet Ari Seth Cohen
I was so excited when I read that Ari was going to be at BlogWorld. I found Ari’s blog about a year ago and I’m a huge fan of his work. His photographs are artistic and whimsical. Ari shows that age is not a barrier when it comes to fashion sense. Ari writes about his subjects who are wise and empowered. The New York Times did an article about Ari and his blog. In the article, Ari said, “The women who I photograph are confident. They know what they like, they know what suits their bodies, and they’re dressing for themselves. They don’t dress based on trends.” Ari’s blog gets over 100,000 unique visits a month because he writes about women like Ruth. Ruth is the gorgeous lady in the red dress. She’s 100 years old and keeps in shape by doing stretching out everyday, lifting weights, and by attending a Pilates class once a week. Ruth started taking classes in her late 80s. You go girl! Ruth proves that it is never too late to start living life to the fullest.
Ari has a book coming out in April, just in time for Mother’s Day. You can pre-order his book on Amazon.com. I want to thank Ari for being so nice to two older ladies of a certain age. We enjoyed meeting you.
