Random style note from the Moscow metro

Elderly woman gets in at Teatralnaya, on the green line. Hair in an elaborate, bouffant hairdo, covered with a black and white polka dot scarf. Loose zebra-print walking coat. Skinny blue jeans. Black patent leather ballet flats.

What I like about this relatively mild period in autumn is that such gorgeousness isn’t hidden under bulky winter coats. Although something tells me this woman has something lovely to bust out for when the temperature drops below zero.

What I also like about sights such as these is that it’s an example of someone who’s past retirement age – but still going strong. If I had a good camera handy, I would have asked to take her picture, and submitted it to Advanced Style. They need someone to represent from Moscow.
