In Honor Of Iris

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a screening of “IRIS”, a film documenting the colorful and eccentric life of Iris Apfel.  I’ve always been inspired by Iris’ unapologetic way of being who she is, wearing what she wants and how she beautifully creates works of art, using herself as the canvas.

We have so much in common.  She started in interior design, traveled the world, shopping the local markets and bazaars for one of kind treasures, we’re both bargain hunters who love the haggle, she is deeply in love with her dear husband, she follows no fashion rules, she speaks her mind and she doesn’t judge others’ self expression.

I was so excited to see the documentary and even more so because Iris herself was to attend and do a Q&A. I put together a wild mix of prints, layered on the necklaces, rocked red lips and giant tortoise print glasses in the hopes of catching the eye of my fashion idol.  Unfortunately, Iris couldn’t make it last minute and I can’t deny I wasn’t a little crushed.

Iris is full of great lines and one of my favorites is, “More is more, less is a bore”.  Even though I didn’t get to meet this fabulous bird of fashion she still inspired me to push my limits, be creative and rock what makes me happy.

    1. I know this is a crazy look! When I was putting it together I said, “this is BANANAS”!!! I think it works too, carrying the same colors, similar patterns throughout. Glad you appreciate it!

  2. I love how you pull off such a busy mix of prints so effortlessly! The shoes look great! 🙂

    1. I really appreciate that! I felt like this was my most daring mix of prints so far but there is something quite liberating in pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone and just owning it! ~Sheena

  3. Marvellous prints and colours together in your outfit. I love the neck pieces. I always appreciate colourful outfits. And, who wouldn’t be inspired from such a fashionable woman, like Iris! ❤
