Iris Apfel - my current fashion idol

As we know, style is very individual and unique and some keep their sense of style for life.   Well this certainly applies to one woman who I came across recently on a Netflix doco about Iris Apfel.    At 95 years of age, this lady is still rocking it.  Her use of colour, print and textures is spot on, she is not afraid and doesn't follow trends.  Her background was in textiles and interior design travelling the world with her husband, for their business where she would buy beautiful pieces of fabric or interesting clothing, which were more like works of art.  Alongside these fabulous outfits comes her vast collection of costume jewellery - no she's not into the expensive stuff!   It wasn't until more recently that she has come to the attention of the media and the fashion set where she styles and designs and has even had her wardrobe exhibited in art museums.  I highly recommend you watch this doco, if only to check out the arm (and neck) candy she adorns!  Quirky, funky, I love this lady's style!
