Apfel says the secret to fashion success is: “You have to be original, but not to the point of nutsy.” And she has some blunt opinions: She loves over-the knee boots, but expensive ripped jeans are “insanity.”

I love her. I wore big round glasses in the sixties (went to a fashion school). .Even my teachers never got it ( well perhaps it was just the academic ones). I worked at Bonwit Teller(first job),then moved to L.A. So square back then, just hippies and conservatives. No fashionistas. Did I say I lover her?

Original, not nutsy! Lol Ya gotta love this lady, blunt, forward and straight to the point.
Straight up with no chaser! Lol 🤓
She's a very lucky lady because she met and married a man who loved her for herself and was confident enough not to care when people looked twice at her amazing outfits. Real men like that, who are comfortable in their skin and confident enough to allow their lady to live her life as her most authentic self are as rare as hen's teeth!
