Racing Around Town ... In Style!

We've been racing around town at breakneck speed to catch all the New York Fashion Week runway shows and parties and events. Running for taxis or subways or buses with Valerie's leg in a boot is not the best idea, so we found a chic solution to our transportation challenge: this fabulous crimson motorcycle and sidecar courtesy of Bar & Books on Lexington Avenue. Stay tuned for a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot coming soon. In the meantime, just sit back and enjoy the ride!  (Photo by Rolly Robinson)

Our recent brush with fame -- when we were nominated as two of StyleCaster's 50 Most Stylish New Yorkers -- brought us to the attention of Senior Planet, a non-profit organization specializing in senior issues.

We were delighted to accept when Barbara Aria suggested a telephone interview. That's us (in case you didn't realize it) gracing the Senior Planet home page, above.  To read the highlights of our chat with Barbara, and to see some additional photos on which we gave Senior Planet first dibs, click here.

When you're done with that, surf around Senior Planet to see the wealth of information they provide on a number of topics. Senior Planet also has offices in the Chelsea section of Manhattan where they offer classes for seniors stepping into the digital age. Right now they're teaching classes on Word, digital photography, e-commerce, social networking and introduction to the iPad, among others. There are free "tech tips" on their website ("how can I protect my privacy online?", for example) as well as tips on financial planning, wellness, etc. A great asset!

We also had an email interview with StyleCaster.  They told us they wanted to release all the pictures first (of course!), and then they would print the interviews. To read an excerpt from StyleCaster's interview with us, click here. Oh, and that's us above, keeping company with The New York Times' Bill Cunningham on the StyleCaster Street Style page.


  1. I think the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas have found their ideal means of transportation. I loved the Senior Planet interview - you two were at your articulate and inspirational best. You're fast becoming internet darlings and spokewomen for "ageing with verve"! I feel kind of privileged that I will be able to say...."I knew them when...."

  2. I am excited and thrilled to see that you're riding in style from one giant adventure to glorious escapade!
