MFAMB said what I was thinking. Iris would be all over that uzbek long cardigan. I hope that 70 buck winning bid was yours!

I tried some glasses on just like these the other day. Not quite as large but there in spirit. I am not old enough to be that eccentric old lady yet but you know what, I put those frames on and could not stop smiling. Should have got them, hey.

A friend and I zipped down to the Peabody Essex museum for the completely unbelievable exhibit of her clothes and accessories and accessories and accessories. ( http://thedowneastdilettante.blogspot.com/2010/02/iris-apfel-and-china-trade.html ). Don't miss the interactive Iris Apfel paper dolls (linked from my post)

The Down East Dilettante said...

Oh, wait. Sorry Raina, I see you were actually the first visitor to that post months ago. Duh. I even replied. Nothing worse than a senile dilettante.
