NYC fashion icon Iris Apfel is selling jewelry from her personal collection tonight

Forgive us for the late notice, but savvy New Yorkers who worship fashion icon Iris Apfel need to cancel their plans tonight. Ever-changing concept shop STORY (144 Tenth Ave) is hosting a trunk show with the interior designer from 5 to 7pm, during which the stylish New Yorker touts one-of-a-kind jewels and accessories from her very own personal collection.

The 96-year-old who grew up in Queens, New York is widely-known for her eclectic taste in bling as well as fabrics. Simply put: The bolder the better, and, damn, does she rock the eye-catching look well. For those who want to follow in her footsteps, prices for her treasured baubles start at a reasonable $40 and go all the way up to $895.

Our advice? Get there, like, now. The event is first come, first served, and you can count on a line out the door. FYI: This isn’t a meet-and-greet, so if you want Apfel to sign her book or any book about her that you've picked up, you’ll have to find a way to do it on your own time. But you can take a photo with her (if you buy something) and make all your Instagram followers jealous. 

You should also use this opportunity to admire STORY’s latest digs, which is currently designed as a modern and serene work space in addition to a store. Go here for all the details to the event, and if you’re looking for a place to work from now until May 25th, STORY has you covered too.
