Why I Am Not Afraid of Being 90

Because Iris Apfel makes 90 look GOOD!  You don't get that level of style and confidence without living in your skin for more than 45 years.

“I learned that I have to go to bed with myself at night and that I have to please myself…and as long as I don’t go out of my way to offend anybody that I love, upset my mother or my husband…I’ll do my own thing. And if the public doesn’t like it, it’s their problem, not mine.” – Iris Apfel

True story- I was in church, envying an old lady who wore a zillion diamond rings, thinking, "When I get to be her age, I'm going to wear all of my jewelry at once too."  Then I thought, "What's stopping me?"  Duh!  Be who you want to be!  Life is not a dress rehersal! 

Some of Iris' bling.
