Audacious Iris

When you don't dress like everybody else, you don't have to think like everybody else. - Iris Apfel

When I think about someone whose attitude about style I most admire, I can easily point to Iris Apfel. 


Don't get me wrong, while I might not share her same sense of artistry,  I deeply admire her casual indifference to the rules of fashion.

Iris makes her own rules and bows only to the goddess within.
At 96 years old, she has an abundance of wisdom to share with the rest of us who long to set free our inner muse. 

Her life has been an audacious exercise of full self expression without apology.  Her wisdom and wit continue to inspire generations of women to use their bodies as a conduit for happiness, color, creativity and inspiration. 

You may enjoy this recent blog post from her visit to Newport Rhode Island this past summer and if you haven't seen the film, do yourself a huge favor and pass the popcorn!
