...I want to be like Iris Apfel. I want to wear crazy patterns, and chunky jewelry and giant glasses. She is a fashion trendsetter at the the tender age of 89, and made Vanity Fair's best dressed list in 2008. Her wardrobe had it's own exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum, and the book Rare Bird Of Fashion, based on the exhibit followed.
I did a little searching around the wonderful world of Etsy to see what I would need to put together an oufit that that Iris might approve of. This is what I came up with....
|Amazing round glasses rimmed with tiny crystals|
from Vintage50sEyewear on Etsy
|flowy caftan-like dress in bright colors|
from theVintageSideShow on Etsy
|an armful of chunky bracelets|

and these to die for, handmade, tooled leather shoes
