It's Summer! And since ya can't hide no more under mufflers and duffle coats, Realize brings you our first serious style shoot. In fact, the real reason we do so is to prove a point - that at ANY age, all it takes is a little imagination and a bit of moxie, to make a style statement. At this point in our lives, we should be free to dress as we damn well please and, if you're into style, that means rifling your closets, vintage stores, the racks from Barneys to Target and doing a mash-up. Check it out!
And from the shaggy frontlines of hipster culture, we bring you a light-hearted documentary on BEquinox, a regional Burning Man festival held in Joshua Tree, California, this March. Pint-sized, compard to the actual Burning Man - but it has the same wild mix of people and shenanigans, and the same blissed out vibe.
If you missed our video interview with Dr. Bill Thomas, one of the Wall Street Journal's top 12 leaders in the field of 'retirement,' drop in on that: it's a fun and most surprising conversation. And the question is ~ are you ready to be an Elder?? Read the Editor's Blog on GONZO ELDERHOOD.
On the Style beat, if you didn't already, check out these features from last month: a slideshow of Older Dudes in Hats and an awesome playlist based upon Charles Mingus's Goodbye Porkpie Hat, a tribute to legendary sax player Lester Young.
Become part of a new cadre of steely-eyed 'elders' and let's rock the joint!!!
