I am very excited to announce that I will be covering this amazing event next Sunday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I would highly suggest if you are in the city, and you have a fondness for fashion, this should be top on your "to do" list. I am looking forward to a great conversation between these 2 icons of fashion, and what great perspectives from a 90 year old and a 16 year old!!

Iris Apfel: "I can't tell people how to have style. No amount of money can buy you style. It's just instinctive."
Tavi Gevinson: The Bloggers vs. Editors! thing is tired. If there was a real competition, editors wouldn't be willing to give bloggers press. Blogs and magazines are good for different things; it's like comparing apples with oranges. Collaboration, not competition. Always!
