I don’t like rules and regulations. Everybody’s outlook should be individual. Some people are phenomenally minimalist and some people can carry a hat. You just have to experiment and spend some time at it. If somebody’s going to tell you what to do, it’s going to be pretty boring Iris Apfel.... Love her!
Iris Apfel - “I don’t care what people think…I learned a long time ago…I was 19 and had a very traumatic experience….and I learned that I have to go to bed with myself at night and that I have to please myself…and as long as I don’t go out of my way to offend anybody that I love, upset my mother or my husband…I’ll do my own thing. And if the public doesn’t like it, it’s their problem, not mine.”
