Iris Apfel is one of the most amazing fashion icons on earth. Ever since I saw this photo-spread in W Magazine, (which I had hanging on the wall in my attic roomI’ve been obsessed with her. This endearing woman is the queen mother of accessories, prints, and interior design. Behind her fabulous huge glasses, she has an amazing eye for style.

& if you don’t have time to watch, here’s my favorite quote from the video that sums it up nicely…

Freedom of expression is the most important thing because if you dont then you’re all bottled up and you’re just choking.” -Iris Apfel
