My girlfriend Erika sent me a short clip of this 64 year old “Accidental Fashion Icon.“
Needless to say I fell in love with Lyn immediately and wanted to share her story with you guys.
Lyn Slater has been a professor at Fordham University for years and her students begged her to write a blog on fashion because they loved her style.
Little did she know that she was going to inspire so many people!
“This project is me saying: I’m not twenty, and I don’t want to be twenty” Slater explains. “But I’m pretty cool, and here I am.”
One of the many things I like about her story is that her followers are mainly young people who are grateful for her because she gives them hope in a world obsessed with youth.
“I get a lot of emails from younger people saying…
You’re making us feel like getting old is fun and cool, and that you can do whatever you want at whatever age “
Slater said in an interview.
Make sure you follow Lyn’s Blog Accidental Icon on Instagram
In fact, Slater‘s blog, Accidental Icon, has taken off so much that ELITE London’s special bookings division signed her up as a model.
She embodies a rebellious style and attitude that defies convention.
