Art Notes: A Must See

Now at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA:
Iris Apfel signifies what I can only hope to become: a true fashion icon for the ages. Her use of color and her signature round glasses embody her bold character. I just heard about this exhibition this afternoon and have Sunday plans to see it now. I can't wait! Visit the Peabody Essex Museum's website to read more about this fabulous woman!

Oh my! I'm 98% sure I waited on her at the bakery in Salem last week! She was wearing big white frames. She was definitely memorable and stylish but I didn't realize who she was!
