Ellen - Hayes Street, SF

"I've been doing this for longer than you could possibly know."

I heart Ellen's color scheme of varying violet, lavender and purple. She wears her clothes fearlessly and with that gorgeous white hair is a vision to aspire to.

Turns out Ellen is a renowned City Hall Historian and Chair of the Preservation Commission. And, as mentioned as an aside to me, believes that fashion should be preserved.

A purple suede handbag festooned with feathers, held by her purple perforated leather gloves.

A look at her peeptoes.

Yep, a role model she is. I love it when women rock the white hair and look beautiful. Ever read the poem "When I'm an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple"? But something about her, I wouldn't call an "old woman."
