2015 In Review

December 28th, 2015


Photo By Daniel

Daniel and The SC spent many hours together during the year, creating photos for Style Crone and learning through new experiences.  Sometimes we discovered sites in Denver that provided interesting backgrounds or we stayed close to home.  The location didn’t matter!  Rather, it was the fun and laughter that sparked our creativity. Thank you Daniel, for another year of glorious good times!

This post will revisit a few of the highlights on Style Crone that made my life sing in 2015.

Mr J and The SC began the year in Miami, enjoying the sun and the warmth, the people and the thrills of the city.   Meeting up with Patti of Not Dead Yet Style HERE added to the fun.

Daniel and I collaborated on a series of photos at Mod Livin’ HERE, playing with backgrounds and the mid-century modern furniture and accessories available on the store floor.

Hat Attack continued with its 29th post in December.  Thank you to all who participated and shared your gorgeous headwear!  The photo above features a hat by Heather Stoten Millinery HERE from Boulder, CO, who stunned me with her skills and artistry.

Ari Seth Cohen of Advanced Style HERE and designer Fanny Karst HERE collaborated on the creation of the “Old Is The New Black” tee, which was seen worn proudly across blogland and Instagram in all of its glory.

The final post in the “gown series” was featured during the winter, but the series could re-emerge at a moments notice.  There are more pieces that have been yearning for an outing!

My beloved daughter Camille married her husband Sean in May, and I couldn’t be more happy.  I welcomed this event in the cycle of life, sweetened with hope and new beginnings.

Mr J and The SC traveled to NYC, and the delightful blogger meetups included Jean and Valerie of the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas HERE, Ari Seth Cohen of Advanced Style HERE, Jean of Dross Into Gold HERE, Carol of Femme et Fleur HERE, Feda of The Eclectic Photographer HERE, Debra Rapoport of Debra Rapoport.com HERE, Lyn of Accidental Icon HERE, and Patti of Not Dead Yet Style HERE.  I met the kind and talented photographers Eva Weiss HERE and Denton Taylor HERE. We also greeted many new friends and embraced kindred spirits from the past!

The trip to Aspen with Mr J was filled with mountain beauty, delicious food, unique thrifting and interesting people watching.

The summer flew by in a flurry of street art and the exploration of new venues.

I was graced with visits from Sarah of saramaijewels HERE from Australia, Jean of Dross Into Gold HERE from Atlanta, and Sylvia of 40+Style HERE from Singapore. Blogger and Instagrammer meetups are always enlightening and inspirational.

I discovered a new hat at a thrift shop during my trip to Minnesota.  It looks like I’m still adding to my  collection!

My passion for yoga grew stronger.  As one of my teachers stated, “Shaking is where the change takes place.”  I’m taking that concept off the mat in 2016, as I plan to take myself out of my comfort zone and explore new possibilities.


Photo By Daniel

Mr J and The SC continued to live life fully and with intention into our 70’s.  Susan Wick’s HERE art exhibit at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art HEREWild Women Never Get The Blues, offered a venue for laughter and visual wonder.

Debra Rapoport of Debra Rapoport.com HERE was in Denver for our friend Susan Wick’s show, and presented “Cuffs,” a workshop that was attended by a group of creative people from Denver who enjoyed every moment.

I grew my hair out from red to silver, and found the transition to be life affirming and exhilarating!  Thank you to the talented Charlie Price HERE for my new hair style.

Thank you to all who follow and comment on Style Crone.  I read every word with appreciation, and am grateful for your support.  Style Crone wouldn’t exist without you and I look forward to the adventures that unfold in the new year.  Wishing each and every one of you the very best in 2016.

 Peace, Love and Health

    A reader for a few years now, I wanted to take the opportunity to say how much I enjoy your blog–the sentiments of a serene and thoughtful spirit in addition to the wonderful photos; it’s inspirational. The best to you in 2016. I look forward to reading more!

    Dear Judith,
    As an image consultant for over 25 years now, I am transitioning into the career of a Gestalt Therapist. Will be completing my training with a Masters during 2016.
    Am loving the journey, despite the challenge of assignments and study. It is wonderful to know my brain still works too.
    However, I still have clients for shopping and such and I still have to play with my clothes and dress up. Somedays I wonder will I ever loose interest. And then I get your beautiful blogs and I know it’s some of the fire in my belly.
    Long may we love our dress ups! Happy New Year to you and Daniel.

    As someone who only discovered the world of blogging half way through the year, it’s wonderful to see your round up of 2015. To me, Style Crone equates elegance and innovation along with your ever present serenity. As the Grande Dame of fashion I look to you for inspiration, as I’m sure many others do too. Wishing you peace, joy and love for 2016 x
