I’ve written about Iris on BrockelPress before. Jacob and I are totally on board with her thoughts on style, design, and making your home your own. Her thoughts on aging are pretty special also.

I’m a huge fan of her confidence, because I believe that, as Ron Suskind once said, “Confidence is the public face of competence.”

Apfel says, “If the Good Fairies came, they gave me a couple of gifts. One is a sense of humor and the other one was a very, very deep sense of curiosity.”

I think that Iris and I just may have shared the same Good Fairies. This video is one of my favorites. Watch her and enjoy her spunk. (Unlike Mr. Grant, I love spunk.)
