Sound Bites

The most important things are said on The New Potato…we all know that. That’s why we’re starting Sound Bites, a throwback to some of our interviews featuring inspirational quotes. What’s the choice for today? A little style advice from icon Iris Apfel, whose words are making us pretty excited for weekend-wear…

“A woman should know herself, and know what she can afford, not only financially, but if she can carry it off. She should know whether she wants to invest her time in studying herself and experimenting – it doesn’t come from out of the blue. Personal style is attitude, attitude, attitude. It has to come from within. You have to develop things yourself. It takes a long time, and it isn’t easy. Lately I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s a difficult thing for a lot of women, and it makes them uptight and nervous. You don’t have to be a fashion plate; if it’s a choice of being uptight and nervous, I’d rather be badly dressed. If you’re happy, that’s the most important thing. If you want to experiment try, but no one is going to put you in jail if you buy the wrong skirt.” – Iris Apfel
