Iris Apfel & Leandra Medine: The Chatroom



Amidst my crazy few weeks of exams, I love winding down with a few hours (eek!) of my favourite YouTube channels. Here's the best video as of late, from the one and only Leandra Medine a.k.a. The Man Repeller. She is interviewing Iris Apfel, who is one of the most fantastic icons in the fashion industry.

I've recorded a few lines from their chat, which I think are just lovely.

Leandra: What do you want to be when you grow up?
(Iris is 93 years old)
Iris: I think about that a lot.
Leandra: I knew you might. 
Iris: First you have you know yourself. If you don't know yourself then just forget it. Knowing yourself is not the easiest thing in the world, and it's often very painful.
Leandra: And takes time.
Iris: And it takes a long time. And you have to look in the mirror. I think that's the greatest fashion faux pas, is people look in the mirror and they see somebody else


Tips on staying married for 67 years -

Iris: Be patient, have a sense of humour, I don't think you wanna smother anybody, or feel jealous, or not let them do this. I think that's very important. I was always given all the space I needed... except for in the closet. (ha!)


I also love Leandra's room tour, which you can see here.
