Iris Apfel - The Queen of Accessories!
Iris Apfel is a fashion icon. She’s known for her ageless style of wearing bold colors, oversized glasses, and vibrant jewelry. Most of all she’s known for always expressing her individuality and encouraging others to do the same. Our founder, Cecelia Post, was able to meet the fashion icon at a Minnie Muse installation at Neiman Marcus Hudson Yards in New York City. The experience was a bucket list item for Cecelia as Iris Apfel will forever be her fashion icon.
In recognition of Iris Apfel, we’d like to share some of her best fashion quotes and what it means to our founder, Cecelia Post. These quotes express the true beauty of Iris Apfel, and what she represents in the fashion industry and beyond.
“More is More and less is a bore!”
This quote is featured on Iris Apfel’s Instagram and is a true representation of this fashion icon. Don’t be afraid to layer on your jewelry, make a statement! Experiment with your jewelry, you are the showcase. Show love for yourself with accessories. Iris Apfel has no rules when it comes to fashion. Throw more and have fun.
“I think jewelry can change an outfit more than anything else. Transformation, punch, individuality: One or all of the above are why you should wear jewelry.”
So true & so inspiring! You can wear the same clothes over-and-over again, and yet give them a new look simply by changing your jewelry. Also, jewelry brings one’s own personal finishing touch to an outfit. Iris Apfel is the Queen of Accessories. She is not afraid to make a bold statement with her jewelry because it’s what she feels is right.
“Never be afraid to stop traffic.”
My credo! Have fun and get noticed with entrance making jewelry. Don’t blend into the background, life is short. Be seen and make an impression! Be remembered.
