Iris Apfel + Week(end) Roll Call

Let's talk class and the refinement of a woman with age. I can't wait to be ninety years old if it means I can be Iris Apfel. She's so stunning, quirky and bold. And I'd never have to worry about slowing down..... she just did a makeup line with MAC and this year will mark sixty-four years of marriage for Iris and her husband. Now, that is something to celebrate!

- My newest girl crush is a DIY maven. Ariele, of Brooklyn to West, is the junkyard queen version of Bob Vila! She's a bad-A carpenter extraordinaire and collects repurposed wood to create amazing headboards, tables and cutting boards. Favorite part is her 'about me' : "I enjoy being a mixture of things: the woman who cooks and bakes, and the girl who runs table saws and nail guns, builds furniture, carries around screwdrivers in her purse, and can fix just about anything {minus cars}. " Ariele, can we be friends and I'll be your apprentice?! 

Hope everyone has a most delightful weekend!
