Today I’d like to bring some brightness into your life on yet another snowy day in Nova Scotia with some daring fashions by some wonderfully creative fashionistas. We start with Martine Turgeon who was a fixture at Aphrodite while she taught at StFX the past few years. She has the great self confidence to present herself in a new way every day. She explains that dressing is her art – the one way she expresses her creativity and personality with no abandon. Sadly she moved back to Montreal so we miss her regular visits. But before she did I went out and photographed her wearing some of the wonderful concoctions she created out of Aphrodite fashions mixed up with her own palette. Ya gotta love her style!

Advanced Style is written by Ari Seth Cohen “I roam the streets of New York looking for the most stylish and creative older folks. Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest. Advanced Style offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age.”
