“Young lady, you are not pretty and you’ll never be pretty, but it doesn’t matter. You have style.” Mrs. Loehmann said this to Iris Apfel the style icon, as she was perched on her high stool in her store. How would you feel if someone said that to you? Would it scar you for life and give you a complex, or would you be like Iris - continue to let your individuality shine in a world that is so homogenized despite others judgment? I feel like Iris on some level is my spirit animal. Her documentary, Iris is a must watch.
On to the dress: I love shirtdresses for their effortless vibe - especially, one with a tie-waist that enhances the flattering design of the dress. This Vince Camuto leopard print style is one of my favorite dresses sitting in my closet right now. It's full of sass without having to put much effort into it other than adding a little color punch in accessories, like a two-tone pink clutch, shoes and jewelry.
