This week’s Instagram style star isn’t on Instagram at all. Meet 66-year-old Swampscott psychotherapist and author Johanna Skouras. She sent an email asking if I would be kind enough to feature her as a way to “salute the old bags of America who refuse to surrender to stereotypical expectations of how older women should dress.” Who could say no to that kind of pluck? Skouras traveled around Europe in the 1960s as an artist’s model and dabbled in sculpture in the 1970s before becoming a psychotherapist. She can whip up a dress in less than an hour and loves mixing high-end pieces with thrift-shop treasures. Time to meet The Enthusiast’s first non-Instagram Instagram style pick.
