The One and Only Iris Apfel

Yesterday I had the privilege of not only having lunch with an amazing 100 year old, but breakfast with the legendary Iris Apfel as well. Iris is as busy as ever working on her handbag line, a line of jewelry for HSN, and a collaboration with eye-bobs. At 90 years old Iris is proof that keeping active is the secret to aging gracefully.

Love that woman. I can't get enough of her. I own several pieces from her HSN line and I'm excited to hear about her eyeglasses. Hot Chicken what would I give for a pair of those sunglasses?!?!

Love those sun glasses. And love equally, that she has the *gumption,* to wear them. :-))))))

Gentle hugs,
"Auntie"

Style and humor is a daring combination. If there's anyone who can pull it off it's The Apfel!

I adore her!! I first read about Iris Apfel around 15 years ago in a 1974 issue of architectural digest which belonged to my uncle. I was intrigued by her house and it was the first time I read about a collector. Since then I used to keep looking at all the red walls of her home and the things she had collected from time to time. It was much later around two years back that I saw her in your blog Ari!!!! I wish i could meet her. But I am in India and I don't know whether I will make it to the US of A.But a girl can dream cant' she? Thanks a million for your lovely blog.

And I have one more reason to love her. She resembles my grandmother.
