“Nobody ever crossed the road to meet a personality”: these are the wise words this woman learned from her style-conscious mother. And she also learned from her mother that it is important to dress to express who you are as an individual, which this woman so clearly does. In an age of little black dresses she says that her closet is full of ivories and pastels. Doesn’t she look fabulous? This woman works in the fashion industry. I have seen many images of Iris Apfel of New York lately, and this woman, while much younger, brings to mind the same individual flair for expression.
