Quote of the Day:

Iris Apfel

  • Fashion and interior design are one and the same.
  • You have to push yourself when you're older because it's very easy to fall into the trap. You start to fall apart - you just have to do your best to paste yourself together. I think doing things and being active is very important. When your mind is busy, you don't hurt so much.
  • The world is not black and white; there are lots of shades of grey. There are good things and bad things in every era, and I think it's kind of very blindfolded to say one era was wonderful, as it was wonderful, but there were a lot of bad things as well.
  • Great personal style is an extreme curiosity about yourself.
  • My father told me once not to expect anything from anybody so I wouldn't be disappointed. If somebody was nice and did nice things for me, I should be overjoyed, but I shouldn't go through life expecting it, which is very good advice.
  • My look is either very baroque or very Zen - everything in between makes me itch.
  • Oh my God, I'm a walking advertisement for discounted shopping.
  • Fashion has this youth mania. But 70-year-old ladies don't have 18-year-old bodies, and 18-year-olds don't have a 70-year-old's dollars.
  • Colour can raise the dead.
  • I am not a fashionista, and I don't dress up. Usually if I'm at home, where I am now, I'm wearing a robe.
