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

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.

$99.90 on HSN








Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, red studded oxfords

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel, red studded oxfords

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.

    • Lioness attempts to attack tourists but leap falls way short; video

      As a vehicle carrying tourists made its way past a lion enclosure in the Serengeti Safari section of the Estrella Biopark in Montemorelos, Mexico, a lioness went into a crouching position as if stalking the visitors. Then it decided to attack, which was a horrible idea by Elsa the lioness, as footage captured by tourist Jan Adrian Diaz proves: The lioness obviously underestimated its leaping ability as it fell into the large moat that surrounds the enclosure and keeps tourists safe for instances such as these. Elsa wasn’t even close to reaching the other side of the trench. The male lion, meanwhile, remained lying in its position, no doubt unimpressed by the lioness’ antics. A park spokesperson

    • A deleted text message from vengeful gangster may get Aaron Hernandez off hook for double murder

      The text message was sent way back on July 5, 2013. Perhaps because its sender, Alexander Bradley, realized it held unwanted power, like the capability of impacting his immunity deal in an Aaron Hernandez double murder trial, let alone rocking the entire case altogether. In a plea deal, Bradley, however, gave authorities full access to his phone, including deleted and otherwise privileged communication with his lawyer.

    • What Happened to ‘The Little Couple’? Get the Latest on Jen Arnold and Bill Klein and Their Show!

      A lot of reality shows have come and gone — but few captured our hearts quite like The Little Couple! Since fans first met Jen Arnold and Bill Klein back in 2009, we watched them adopt two children, rooted for Jen as she battled cancer, and so much more. But since the final episode of Season 8 aired more than a year ago, fans have often asked what happened to The Little Couple? Right now, it would appear that The Little Couple is in “limbo” because of a lawsuit between LMNO, the series’ production company, and Discovery, TLC’s parent network. Back in June, LMNO filed a $7 million breach-of-contract and copyright infringement against Discovery — in which they accuse the network giant of conspiring

    • Rick Perry accuses Texas A&M’s first gay student body president of stealing election

      Bobby Brooks, a junior at Texas A&M, made history this month when he was elected as the university’s first openly gay student body president. Nearly two decades prior, Rick Perry, also an A&M alumnus, made his own bit of university history when he became the first Aggie to serve as governor of Texas. But for their shared school pride, these men and their accomplishments had nothing to do with each other. That changed Wednesday, when Perry, the country’s current energy secretary chose to plunge into campus politics, claiming publicly that Brooks stole the election from another student. That student, Robert McIntosh, is the son of a prominent Republican fundraiser in Dallas who campaigned for Trump

    • Dear Abby: Friends are ignoring the loss of our cat

      DEAR ABBY: We recently lost one of our cherished pets, our oldest cat, Mandy. We never had children, so our pets ARE our children. I get that people who have never had pets don’t understand the joy and unconditional love they can bring. But I don’t understand why people we thought were close to us haven’t acknowledged our loss in any way. Some of them have — or had — pets at one time. A few did send cards or emails, and they were so appreciated. Their kindness will never be forgotten. Mandy wasn’t sickly. She just stopped eating one day. When we took her to the vet a few days after trying everything we could think of, the diagnosis was kidney cancer. A couple of days later we had to make the

    • The Trump kids are in Aspen and it's ruining everyone else's hygge

      It is uncool to stay home during spring break, so the Trump kids are vacationing in Aspen with their families this week. Unfortunately, they seem to be making everyone around them miserable. According to Vanity Fair, numerous other vacationers are not pleased with the chaos Ivanka, Eric and Donald "Stump", Jr. seem to have brought with them to Colorado — including unbearable traffic, crowded restaurants and a rumored 100-person security presence. SEE ALSO: The internet isn't too happy about Ivanka Trump's fancy dress tweet "They're everywhere. There are so many of them," one mom said. "Everyone is complaining. Everyone is annoyed." And with good reason. How is anyone supposed to relax and embrace hygge with such a strong odor of complicity in the air? To be fair, the Trumps have had a hectic week too. Eric and his wife Lara announced that they're having a baby, and little Tristan Trump broke his leg on the slopes.  Eric and I are excited to add a boy to our pack in September!  #BabyTrump A post shared by Lara Trump (@laraleatrump) on Mar 20, 2017 at 8:27am PDT Tiffany Trump, for the record, did not go to Aspen.
