After visiting Sue Kreitzman’s magical studio and apartment, we gathered at the Rubin Museum HERE Cafe for fun and frivolity, and the privilege of meeting the fabulous blogger from London, Alyson Walsh (on the right) of That’s Not My Age HERE.  Blogger Carol Markel of Femme et Fleur HERE smiles brightly in the center!


Along with Sue Kreitzman, who was leaving for her London home the next morning, we toasted to the celebratory gathering of Wild Old Women (Sue’s term) and had a bite to eat, along with libations.


Meeting Alyson was a memorable occasion.  I’ve been enamored with her blog for years, and found her to be even more beautiful, engaging and witty in person, if that is at all possible.  Here she is, revealing her holiday bling, which sparkles in unison with her sweater.  I’ve found that meeting like-minded bloggers to be one of the most exciting and meaningful aspects of blogging.  This gathering was no exception!


I loved Alyson’s choice of nail polish, which playfully accessorized her vintage faux fur coat!


Sue Kreitzmans’s bracelet caught my eye with its unique and intricate design, pairing with her jacket to perfection.  Catch Sue’s documentation of our day HERE on her Google page, which also displays photos of the charming Richard Cramer, whose presence also graced this gathering.

This visit to NYC met all expectations, and more.  Reentry takes time as I integrate my experiences, returning to the life that I love in Denver, enriched, re-energized and ready for the next adventure, however it takes form.

HAT ATTACK #7 will be featured on Saturday, February 1st.

Whoever wants to can join in!  Just compose a post that includes any hat, headwrap, headpiece, fascinator, hair flower, headband or other adornment for your head that you love on Saturday, February 1st.  Participation will be open for one week, or until Friday, February 7th.  Follow the directions HERE provided on Style Crone to post your photo and hope to see you there!


  1. Ahhh, blogger meet ups are the best! How lovely to see you all together, looking so beautiful and stylish. And it’s great to know you have returned from New York feeling energised and happy. What’s next, Judith?! xxx

  2. I have followed your exciting visit. It’s great colorful and full of joy. Your beautiful descriptions of the exciting and fabulous people is wonderful You all look fantastic – I love it

  3. That first photo of the three of you is a keeper. Lucky you getting to meet Alyson in person. I remember reading in one of her posts that she loves chandelier earrings — love her sparkly holiday earrings and top.

  4. I agree–blogger meet ups are the best! I can’t live without them; in fact I just have to meet other bloggers. Otherwise, they are too virtual. xoxo

  5. I have only been honored to participate in a couple of blogger meetups…and I am always jealous when I read about them. This one looks like so much fun, Judith. I am also a fan of Alyson and read her blog most every day. I bet this was engaging conversation! Have a wonderful week and stay warm!!

  6. Great pictures to commemorate a fabulous meet-up. I think you’ll be savoring it for a long while; I know I would!!

    Maybe NY needs to be revisited in the early fall, if not before. Let the heat die down a little, though. Or maybe a trip to London will be in order? So much to look forward to.


  7. What a wonderful group of women to meet in person! Much inspiration to go on for some time. Looks like each of you is having a great time.

  8. Some of my favorite women! What a wonderful opportunity to meet and schmooze with some of the most amazing women around. I’m star-struck with you guys, all of you! And what lovelies, all different . Not a pre-teen cover girl among you, but each with unique and quantifiable beauty, massive talents and enough smarts to run the world.
    Rock-stars, every one.

  9. What fun! Alyson has such great style, and we had the pleasure of meeting her last year in London. She’s as funny and gracious as you’ve said. Judith, I hope someday we’re in the same corner of the world at the same time and can meet up.

  10. Oh wow, thank you so much Judith. It was such a pleasure to meet you, I had such a fantastic time, truly memorable. And in honour of the WOW meet-up, I’d maxed out the Casual Glamour!

  11. Hi Judith!

    I missed a couple of posts! What interesting Ladies you have met these past weeks! Tks for introducing Alysone, her blog is so interesting! I will surely read it often!
    Sue i know, i have seen her on Fabulous Fashionistas, what a privilege you had to meet such a great artist !



  12. How fabulous for you! I was wondering from your last post what hat you were wearing! As I may have told you, I have been fortunate enough to meet Sue Kreizman at one of her art exhibitons in London. It was a magical occurance, as I didn’t know anything about it, but Gorgeous Husband and I just ran across it! Will email you photo.

    You, my dear, are a VISION, I say, a vision!! I love that scarf and you look so happy. Isn’t it great to be in the company of like-minded people? Wish I could have been there too!

    Much love from England,
    Rosemary from

  13. You always look so very happy in your photos from New York trips – that city does that to you, doesn’t it? I have the same thing happen to me 😉

    Blogger meetups are such fun, and also very inspiring, and the addition of Sue Kreitzman is just the icing on an already fabulous cake. I’m so glad you had a great trip. Your scarf is the cat’s meow!

  14. Judith,

    How wonderful that you had the opportunity to meet with these great ladies. How fun it would be to meet up with other bloggers that enjoy the same interests in style and art. I didn’t realize there are so many ladies over a certain age that are looking for like minds, love style, think young and love live in general. The world of blogging is exciting.

  15. What a great site you have! (So glad I popped by from Tish’s place.)

    Love love love the sparkle in that blouse. I haven’t had much opportunity to meet some of the amazing women I’ve gotten to know online over the past several years, but fingers crossed that it will happen… It looks like great fun! (And now you have me in the mood to go play with my hats. Working from a home office, no one will know if I’m at my computer in a hat, now will they?)
