“At 72-years-old I don’t need anything. Frugality is fun. This shirt was gifted to me from my friend who found it at a thrift shop. I made my necklace out of recycled cloth tape and a piece of found metal that I have had for over 40 years. I've been working with found objects and debris for over 50 years. I'm ready to change my name from Debra to Debris. We have got to create our own fun and joy. Come AS IS—Always Seeing Your Individual Self. Dress to de-stress and play ’til it hurts. Consumerism is the American nightmare and creativity and joy is the way to fulfillment.” – Artist, Debra Rapoport #advancedstyle #advancedstyleolderandwiser #sustainableliving #sustainablefashion

For the next few months I'll be searching for and photographing couples for my new project Advanced Love. Im look for great style, stories and relationships from the Advanced Style set. If you know of any older couples who you think would fit the bill please DM me or email . If I don't get back to you it's because I'm on the road. I greatly appreciate all your support and hope you are enjoying this new series. Pictured @_honeygood and Sheldon Good. #advancedlove #advancedstyleolderandwiser #advancedstyle

My husband passed away in 2000 after a “beautiful marriage” of 44 years. Adapting to my new life alone I decided to move closer to my daughter, grandchildren and great grandchildren in Santa Rosa. As time went by I desired a more active social life and companionship. One day I visualized not being alone and I made a list and talked to the man upstairs. “Number 1, he must be a widower who had had a happy marriage. Number 2, he must be a gentleman-respectful and loving.” Two days later I received a card from Varenna at Foutaingrove retirement community inviting me to lunch. I was so impressed by what they had to offer that I immediately decided to sell my home in Santa Rose and become a resident of the community. While waiting for the house to sell I attended one of Varenna’s monthly parties called “Sip and Savor”
While I was at the party, this very nice-looking gentleman made eye contact with me. When he heard I was going to move in, he said, “may I call you?” and I replied with a smile, “that would be nice.” Hans and I have been constant companions ever since. I’m 97 and he is 12 years my junior, anyone my own age wouldn’t be able to keep up! We have been on hot air balloon rides, road trips, and zip lined through the treetops together. We speak freely about our former spouses. We do love them, but we let them go. However, we feel that they are still with us in spirit and that they approve of our relationship. So it’s a beautiful discussion about our past experiences. You can love people and miss them, but you can’t bring them back. And they would want you to move forward and find love like you had.”-Evita

If you know any great couples for my Advanced Love project. Please email #newlove #advancedstyle #advancedlove #advancedstyleolderandwiser #nevergiveup

I've been resisting but I finally started a personal Instagram account @arisethcohen . I won't be posting much as I like to dedicate most of my time to Advanced Style, but if you would like to come and visit every now and then I'll try to keep up with it all!
