This Old Couple is SHARP!
I was on the Twitter, minding my own business when a twitpic came across my timeline. @Chromeo was at an airport when he saw an older couple who were dressed to the NINES so he tweeted their pic. Behold:
Uncle Rufus and Aunty Opal (what I’ve named them) are slaying hoes (geriatric or otherwise) effortlessly! They better come through and GIVE!!!
How dope are they? Let’s start off with Aunty Opal. Getchu a piece of her bright yellow flats. YESSSS!!! She better follow the new bright color trend! Shoo… Betchu she’s had those since like 1959 too. What’s old is new again. With those stockings? Chile, you better come on, Aunty! And that Giraffe bag? Absolutely. I’d rock the heck outta that tote! Her carry on is flyer than the airplane. Shoo…
Plus her hair is in a solid bun with cute hair accessory and she’s sitting there like “Who gon check me, boo???” Not nobody, Aunty O. Not nary person!
And don’t be sleep on Uncle Rufus over there. Y’all see him in all tan/brown everything? First of all, I’m a hat freak, and Uncah’s fedora got me geeked. His hat matches his suit (with that brown shirt underneath? YES INDEED! And his suit matches his square-toed dress shoes. SIT UP THERE AND TELL ME UNCLE RUFUS AIN’T FRESHER THAN SPRING RAIN AFTER FEBREZE! And bounce laundry sheets. Sit up there and tell me.
Together, Uncle Rufus and Aunt Opal are sharper than a *insert sharp thing here*
This old couple is giving me everything! I love them!!! I hope this is what I step out like when I’m nice and elderly. This is legit!
Do y’all love them as much as I do? They are sooo cute!
My parents do this. And they like to match when they go to church. They’ve been married 38 years.
I love them MORE after your throwing MORE light on their already brighter-than-the-sun shine, lol! The are in da streets & beat ’em good & proper, like a Sam Fine face!
Those flats, the socks, that carryon, that hat band, this post: who, INDEED, gon’ check ya’ll, Boo? LOLOLOLOL!
They sure are! Ain’t gon be no person checking Aunty!
Him and those preacher boots are giving me LIFE!!!! And from having a Big Mama that likes to talk shit about people, but still be cute doing it, that’s what Aunty looks like she’s doing with that hand over her mouth…You already know she is talmbout errybody that ain’t funky, fly, fresh to deaf like them…..
You know he’s had those boots since 1974. He’s SHARP! And Aunty DO look like she’s roasting someone at the moment. She’s earned it.
CHILE!! The fact ALONE that you named em is making my damn day!! I loooove her bag and I have suede shoes something like that! His get-up IS gettin’ up! I swear, you nailed ERRYTHING good about this pic! They shole stuntin’…ha!
I HAD to name them! That bag is off the hook too
Yes! My big mama and pop pop used to put on like this to go pay bills. And I love that they not only coordinate, they are matching each other on the sly. You know he keeps that hat in a box. Shaaarrrpp!
They ARE matching each other. And that fedora got a perfect shape to it. He keeps that in a hat box for sure!
I love them!
Peep her rings and watch. She is fly!
Ooooo how’d I miss those? GET EM, AUNTY!
YALL AIN’T FUGGIN WITH THEIR DOUGIE! PERIOD!
*hits my dougie in their honor*
So beautiful! Can I be that fly when I am old ? And this will be my inspiration everytime I want to be “comfy” (read a hot mess ) when I fly
Right! I pray I’m that fly when I’m geriatric. Slaying all the young’uns effortlessly.
Right! And the fact that she does look like her name could be Opal is even better 😀
Mmhmm! I be knowing!
Fly as they wanna be with her reggae coloured bun holder…and juxtaposed against that bum in the back??
I wanna be them when I’m old and (more) gray.
YOU SEE HER!!! She better work!!!
Looking at Uncle Rufus you can just tell he a real OG. But Aunty Opal look like she’ll do you sumthin’ for real doe! I wouldn’ t check her bout a damn thang!!!
As my Grammy would say they “sharper than yard dogs”! I *love* them!
LMAO!!!! I love “sharper than yard dogs.”
I swear of lord (lol) they are the bees knees (and elbows and toes and and and)
LOL @ “I swear of Lord.” HA!
Luv it! Love Miss Opal’s gangsta lean in the chair too. They look like they are conspiring in the best way possible.
Lawd Gawd! That’s the way my Aunt does it! And she’s 90 years old. Looking sharp when she goes to church and what not!
I looove the way he’s got his hands folded in his lap, it says “I know I look good and I’m cool about it. No sweat, just fly! I’m calm cause I KNOW I got my ish together!” Rat ON Rat ON Right ON!
I should have known better than to come here right before my late shift at work! Now I’m LATE! But seeing this beautiful elder couple has sho nuff blessed my heart! Thanks Luvvie!
Lawd, I don made you late. I WILL NOT PAY UNEMPLOYMENT!!! The rent is too damb high already.
But YESSS you see him being cooler than a great fan? Yes you do see him.
They “casket sharp”! Fashions come and go, but style is FO’EVA! My mom and dad have been married 51 years and they still dress up just to go to Home Depot. Who said black love/marriage was dead? Not in my world! NO SIIIRRR!! *sniff*
HAHAHA that’s a line i say a lot…casket sharp!
you got to coordinate!! i like that the striped socks kind of compliment the rest of the suit.
YOU. SEE. HIS. FRESH.
Wait….I just jumped out my seat…had 2 catch my breath & do a double take….I thought this was my PawPaw & Nanna (Rest their souls)…10 years this month and I thought they had risen from the dead….Bless my soul! Get it Rev & 1st Lady…LOVE IT!!!
