    Ladies if ever you needed style advice, living legend Iris Apfel would be the living legend to get it from. Need a little background on the leading lady, no problem Boutique 44 has got you covered. Ms. Apfel was born in Queens, New York on August 29, 1921. Her journey to style began when she worked as an interior designer. She later moved into opening a textile store with her late husband Carl Apfel. Her impeccable taste, her outlandish fit, and spirited individuality has put her in the fashionista hall of fame! 

    Iris has a few great tips to encourage women to embrace their own personal style. Number One, " If your hair is done properly and you're wearing good shoes you can get away with anything." So if ever you are nervous of pairing those David Aubrey Brass and Onyx earrings with the Leaves are Brown short shift dress from Boutique 44, just trust your gut and go with it, (plus we will be here to back you up). Bringing us to Iris tip number two, "there's no how to roadmap to style. It's all about self-expression, and above all, attitude. If you make a mistake in what you put together, the fashion police are not going to haul you to jail!" So unapologetically wear who you are, and rock it with confidence. After all, that is what Iris has been doing for the past 96 years, and she is doing more than fine.
