Double Take

You know how it is when you come across something...for the second time? First time it just blinks in and blinks out until the time is right. Tick-Tock! When this gal, Iris Apfel, popped onto my screen the other day, I had a flash back only it was forward...a flash forward.
I don't see myself as a Red Hatter but if there was a BIG Black Glasses group, I'd be first in line. I would even cut my locks off for this one.
"Life's way too beautiful and fascinating
to spend time on fashion rules."

This lady has a flair for over the top and seems to have a following who find her fashion " — a more-is-more mix of haute couture and hippie trimmings that appears at a glance to have been blended in a Cuisinart." I've always thought of hallways as wasted real estate...until now. Of course one might feel the need to waltz down this one. one-two-three this side, one-two-three that side, then twirl while taking in some artwork or reading a title or two.
"When you don't dress like everyone else,
you don't have to think like everyone else."

Look out ladies...I feel a
