Ode to the Lady in the Big Round Glasses...


If you're looking for someone who knows how to 'Brand' themselves, it's Iris! 
The artistic designer with the big round glasses, kind eyes, 
and pounds of accessories!

Is this awesomeness or what? From the room to the mini dress!
'Iris' is written all over that photo...

Whoa, by the time we are Iris' age, may we all be that fantastic. You've got a great start with the specs and the big jewels.

I love those big round glasses (just picked up a pair myself) and I love Iris! :D Also, that necklace is absolutely amazing. I love everything you wear!

Hopefully, with Iris as the window of possibilities, an independent mind, and a keen ear on our hearts, we can achieve Iris's style freedom at any age - although I do believe that cumulative life experience hones our modes of expression into sharp focus. Reva, you look stunning! I love your glasses and all your fabulous accessories with the red, red lips. What a great tribute!

Uhm, let's just say I like your glasses better, but she certainly has stately presence. ~Mary

I think Iris is going to be single-handedly responsible for a whole generation of women wearing huge Owl-specs! She is just too damned awesome for words (love her in that yellow jacket, and green shirt and wide leg trousers in the last photo) You look great in the Iris-inspired specs and accessories. We can all be as fabulous as she is as long as we are true to our inner voice and are not afraid to express inside on the outside!
