Style is all about attitude, and Iris Apfel has plenty of bo
Iris Apfel has called herself 'the world's oldest living teenager'. This pocket-sized book simply called Pocket Iris Wisdom would make a wonderful gift for the fashionista in your life, no matter what their age.
There are over ninety pages of quotes divided by style, individuality, love, growing older, herself and life. There is one quote per page by Iris and when it was said. The book's design is minimalist with no illustrations.
My favourite quote by Iris is "I don't have any rules because I would only break them.'
The book allows you to see a glimpse of her wisdom, personality and wry humour. If you want to know more about this inspiring woman, then I can thoroughly recommend the fashion documentaries she has appeared in 'Advanced Style' and 'Iris'.
Pocket Iris Wisdom is the best of Iris Apfel's razor sharp witty remarks and pragmatic quotes.
Pocket Iris Wisdom is available in hardcover from your favourite bookseller.

Voted one of the Best Dressed over 50's by The Guardian, Apfel is Manhattan's oldest and coolest It girl and star of the documentary 'Iris' by filmmaker Albert Maysles, which offers a unique perspective into the delightful life of a style legend.
