Spotted this group of friends leaving a bat mitzvah. I remember wearing a blue crushed velvet dress and platform Mary Janes to a friends bat mitzvah. I’m so old that I actually think that might be in style again…

I often get asked what makes me want to stop someone and take their photo. It usually comes down to seeing someone that I want to strike up a conversation with. And spotting someone with a ukulele doesn’t hurt either.

I stopped this fashionable and very sweet group of Falmouth High School students and asked them to educate an old lady like me about the cool places to shop in town. Luckily, I knew all the places they mentioned. But at least I’ve proven that this bitty still knows whats up!

Taking style cues from a MECA fashion student

And can we talk about the fact that MECA now offers a Textile & Fashion Design major?! When this lovely lady told me that was her major, my jaw dropped. I actually had to hold back tears and literally contain myself. Portland is just one step away from being a fashion capital. I knew it.

There’s nothing that makes me happier than seeing a young guy experimenting with style. I mistakenly asked him if he was a college student in town and was aghast that he told me he was only 15 years-old. I don’t know many young teens that sport blazers and rolled pants when they’re hanging out in town.
