Iris Apfel, legendary style icon, launches shoe line on HSN

Iris Apfel

Iris Apfel

Iris Apfel is a style icon, interior designer, business woman and above all a fascinating character. At 91 years old she is vibrant and an excellent example of personal style. Iris is best known for her truly eclectic clothing and accessories, having been quoted as saying "More is more, less is a bore".

I have been a fan of Iris for many years and am most drawn to her unwavering confidence in who she is and her utter dismissal of what anyone thinks about her.

I am pretty excited to share Iris' newest venture: a line of shoes, clothing and accessories for HSN that she is calling Rara Avis by Iris Apfel. I am especially smitten with all of the shoes in the collection.

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, mesh flats with studs

These denim/mesh round-toe pumps with gold studs are beyond cute and totally on trend for Spring 2013.

I would wear these with a flirty floral dress or even jeans, a t-shirt and a fabulously avant-garde necklace ala Iris.

$69.90 on HSN

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, suede smoking slippers

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, suede smoking slippers

I am a makeup artist and a sucker for anything with lips on it. Throw in some sequins and I'm freaking out. I am in love with these beige suede "smoking" slippers.

I could see myself lounging around the house in silk pajamas with these on a lazy Sunday. And then putting them on on Monday with black cigarette pants and a white mens' button-down shirt with layers of pearls.

Red shoes make me happy. Red shoes that are comfortable, have sparkles and a cute lip-shaped buckle, I'm on Cloud 9.

I could find a million and one reasons to wear these every single day.

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, suede multi-colored maryjanes

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, suede multi-colored maryjanes

There is something so charming and whimsical about these multi-colored MaryJanes, they remind me of Birthday cake!

I would toughen them up a little with "boyfriend" jeans and a leather jacket. I might even throw on some girlie patterned socks.

$79.90 on HSN

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, pointy toe striped flat

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, pointy toe striped flat

These flats are funky and functional. I love the bohemian feel and the cool keyhole detail that shows just a peek of toe cleavage.

Jeans, long skirts, dresses... I can't think of anything these wouldn't look great with. The multi-colored striped fabric would go with anything in your wardrobe.

$59.90 on HSN

Head over to the Rara Avis by Iris Apfel collection on HSN and see everything this amazing style icon has to offer. I can see myself ordering multiple pairs of shoes and don't even get me started on the bags and accessories! I hope that by owning a piece by Iris, that I can absorb just a little of the tenacity that she has for life.

    • See What Little Ricky From "I Love Lucy" Looks Like Today

      When Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz welcomed a son into the world, so did the characters they played on I Love Lucy. Lucy Ricardo gave birth to "Little Ricky" in season two. But real-life Lucy and Desi didn't want their baby on screen for obvious reasons, so they cast a wide net in search of a set of similar-looking twins. (Having two children alternate for one role helps shows adhere to child-labor laws that limit camera time for the industry's youngest actors.) Desi Arnaz chose15-month-old Joe and Mike Mayer based on a photo he'd seen of them at a Twins Club picnic, where their mother was president, the Idaho-Press Tribune reports.

      And babies make four! Shortly after In Touch exclusively revealed that George Clooney’s wife, Amal, is pregnant with twins, a source says their dream came true thanks to IVF! “They had been trying for a baby all summer and it just wasn’t happening, so they sought the help of a fertility doctor and started in vitro fertilization,” the source tells In Touch, exclusively.

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is pursuing Trump over his vast business holdings, from which the billionaire has refused to divest fully, saying that as president he can have no conflict of interest. CREW says Trump's business properties abroad operate based partly on goodwill from foreign governments and regulators, but that under the US Constitution no federal official can receive a gift or "emolument" from a foreign government.
