iris apfel . . . she's fabulous!

native american necklace, c. late 30's early 40's, 
with silver turquoise onyx & bear claws

. . . i know, i know...it's burning up outside, especially here in dallas, & i'm showing you heavy coats & over the knee boots - but what i'm loving about these pics is iris apfel's amazing jewelry! 

i think dressing up or down should be a creative experience. exciting. fun. for me the key to personal style lies in accessories. i love objects form different worlds, different eras, combined my way. never uptight, achieving - hopefully - a kind of throwaway chic - iris apfel

. . . isn't she fabulous!  i'd wear any of these necklaces or cuffs with a simple tee, tank top or sundress!
