This 80-Year-Old Street Beggar Is A Local Celebrity And A True Style Icon

I would like to introduce you a one fashionable lady. Rosie a homeless woman with extravagant dressing style and carefree attitude. She is city spirit, who browse city streets day by day for more than 30 years now, bringing a special atmosphere to the public spaces. She is well over 80 years of age. A lady never reveals her true age. Some would say she is just a beggar, some would not pay attention at all and some would love her for her style. She asks for money in her own a bit flirtatious manner, and every time in a new dress, that she gets from charity. Myself I just see her as an artist and true fashion icon.

Her lined face lights up when I stop to speak to her. When I asked her if I could take a picture, she smiled at me and said for sure if I donate some money. I did gave her some change and she started to pose. After few pictures she asked me if she could see it and asked to take few more. What a diva :)

She lives on the meagre sum she earns by begging. When asked whether she gets enough to eat every day, she tells us, “I eat when I get enough money. When I don’t get enough, I go without food.”

We’re trying to raise money to help her with whatever we can. Anything helps. Let’s all pitch in and help make life a little easier and brighten for Rosie. Please help spread the word!
