Aging with Pizzazz

Actress Mimi Weddell died a few years ago at the age of 94, but not until she left behind quite a legacy. I love characters like her. Mimi was known for her free thinking, elegant style, and for not trying to conceal her wrinkles, or signs of aging.

She was also known for her collection of 150 hats.

Hats Off, a feature length documentary profiling the beauty and her eccentricities, was completed when she was 93.

At the age of 90, Ms. Weddell was named one of the "50 Most Beautiful People in New York" by New York Magazine.

Below is an entertaining trailer of Hats Off.


  1. I would love to see the full length of this somewhere.

  2. What a woman! This attitude may not come naturally to all of us, but surely we can cultivate it! ~Serene

  3. Thank you for your comments. Netflix has it and you also might be able to reserve through your local library system.

  4. That was wonderful! Thank you for turning me on to her!

    Life is a wonderful dance!


  5. Thanks for sharing this - utterly fabulous!

  6. It's so refreshing to see women's faces untouched by facelifts, botox, and peels. I'm going to go stream it now on Netflix. Thanks for introducing her to us.

  7. Thanks Debbie. Let us know what you think!
