Hello, everyone! Although it’s been over a year since our Countess of Glamour graced the pages of Ari Seth Cohen’s bestseller, Advanced Style, she has been attracting quite the A-list buzz from savvy fashionistas around the world. After all, her knack for always having her finger on the pulse of what women want when it comes to their style is what prompted an adorable French blogger named Timai to reach out to Lynn in the hopes of snagging an interview.
Honored by the invitation, Lynn Dell immediately accepted her request and invited her to spend the morning in her glamorous appointment. Making plans to fly from her hometown of Paris to New York City – where she’s been longing to live – Timai thought of this as a fantastic opportunity to meet the woman who successfully put fashion on the map on the Upper West Side with our shop, Off Broadway Boutique, over 50 years ago.
Upon meeting her on her doorstep that late June morning, The Countess of Glamour was tickled to see that fashionable femme looked to be no more than 16 years old soaking wet – especially after finding out that she was a mother of two with a full-time job outside of her blog, superbytimai. Dressed in a Moroccan cotton outfit that is made exclusively by Off Broadway Boutique along with amazing Afghan jewelry that we also sell, it was the very look that she’d wear to Bette Midler’s play later that night.
Over the next few hours, Timai conducted a larger-than-life video interview that proudly displayed the fabulousness of Lynn Dell. Regaling her with priceless bon mots about dressing for the theatre of one’s life, she epitomized one of her favorite sayings, “I am my own special creation” – the result being an inspiration in living her life and style to the fullest at 80 years old. We can continue to discuss the many ways that The Countess of Glamour charmed yet another, but we believe that this enchanting video will explain it all!
Needless to say, it was a pleasant surprise to see that Timai’s article caught the attention of the blog of the French edition of Elle Magazine as well!
