Age ain't nothing but a number, right? Correct! This 63-year-old woman confirms that this saying applies not just to love, but fashion as well. And she probably has better outfits of the day (OOTDs) than yours.
New York-based Lyn Slater is a university professor who has given a transcendental meaning to fashion as far as age is concerned. Popularly known as the Accidental Icon, she runs a fashion blog that has gained remarkable fame and following.
Despite her blog being only three years old, it has become a favorite for street photographers and fashion enthusiasts around the world. Lyne now gets invited to some of the biggest fashion events in the circuit and has worked with several well-known brands.
She has also appeared on popular fashion magazines such as Vogue Mexico and Harper's Bazaar Brazil. She says she got into fashion blogging by accident—hence the name Accidental Icon—when some photographers stopped her on a street and asked to photograph her because they thought she looked cool.
Lyne adds that despite her busy university schedule, she makes time to post on her blog about three times a week. She also has to make time for shooting photographs and attending fashion events. The pictures and event stories eventually end up on her blog.
She notes that she is lucky because her photographer is her life partner, Calvin. Together, they have fun taking pictures and editing them for the blog.
Doesn't she have an impressive fashion sense at her age? And she says she is not slowing down any time soon. Her ultimate goal is to build the blog to become an online fashion magazine. We can only wish her the very best!
