Act III: Enter It (Or You’re About To)

Our friend Roz Ritter is introducing a wonderful new line of clothing (to her already full plate of wearable and conceptual art). ACT III is a refined clothing line designed to celebrate growing older with grace. The shirts are 100% super soft cotton tees in mouth-watering colors inspired by the designer’s philosophy: “natural aging is beautiful."

That’s our Roz (left) in the "If It Wrinkles, It Must Be Real" shirt (we love the story behind this: Ritter's dad was a Beverly Hills' men's clothier and specialized in linen -- this was one of his sayings) .

We have the “Late Bloomer” shirt and just love it. There are several great statements, including “Intrepid,” “The Unexamined Life Is Not Worth Living,” a great T.S. Elliot quote, and the really wonderful, “If Not Now, When?”

Ritter says: Ladies...start your engines! Growing older is a state of mind; and its never too late to look good, laugh loud, and live fully ! She also says, Join the Revolution, Embrace Aging. We are. We have no choice.

All Act III tees are ultra soft 100% cotton shirts in a super-flattering scoop neck & 3/4 sleeve. Wording is designed for subtlety and style.

Monochromatic coloring is perfect for any season...These aren't your teenager's emblazoned tees! Sizes run a bit small. Retail is about $30. Visit for nice, close-up photos of the shirts, which can be ordered at

On the above right, that’s Ritter’s grandson Oliver wearing some of her beautiful knitted line of baby clothing. You can see more of her designs on her Act III website.
