she is my favorite. since forever. holy wow yes omg. she is magnificent. she is an icon. i have said forever, that when i grow up i will be her. my latest collection features a “young Iris”. i was just her on Halloween — not because she is scary or that i was being cheeky, but because my wardrobe allowed it quite easily without much planning. juuuust getting dressed in my normal way 😉
she is such an inspiration. i am so happy that she is being celebrated, i feel like it says something really positive about our culture right now that people like Iris, Anna Piaggi, — even Anna Dello Russo who is younger than the other ladies, but still “older” in fashion terms have such a prominent place in the style world. Not only are they older, they all share an incredibly creative and free-spirited approach to fashion.
long live eccentric women! may you bring us all on your colorful journey!

1 lucky reader and a guest will get 2 VIP passes to the Origins Rocks Earth Month with Train party next Wednesday at Webster Hall!
The tickets include guarantee entry in to the event through VIP entrance, access to the VIP area inclusive of open bar, access to celebrities and high-level guests, mingle with Train and opening act Nikki Jean, as well as (my favorite part) gift bags full of fun samples from Origins!!
How To Enter: since the party is for Earth Month and this is a fashion blog, i think we should see what some of YOU have done in regards to reworking a non clothing item into something chic and fashion forward. so wether it is repurposing a pillow case into a mini dress because you loved the print, to taking your graduation cap tassels and turning them into earrings (both things that i’ve done (and the earrings look very LV SS11)) what is the repurposing or reinvention you are most proud of? include a description of what you did as well as at least one photo of you wearing your item. i will choose my favorite and put the photo up on my blog on Tuesday.
email your entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This contest is made possible by the awesome and earth friendly people over at Origins
