Iris Apfel at Holt's Toronto, Jillian Harris, Love It Or List It, Vancouver. Holt's Vancouver.

IRIS, a 95 year old model, brand representative, interior designer and former textiles designer, star of her own movie, IRIS and much seen, stylishly over the top icon, flew from New York to Toronto to make a personal appearance at Holt's, there.

Will I wear those big, round black glasses, wildly beautiful mixes of pattern and color and tons of jewellery? Iris, in her interview with Jeanne Beker, The Globe and Mail, encourages us to find our own style, mix up what we already have collected and be comfortable in what we wear. Our style is enhanced by exploring that big world out there and by never giving up our curiosity. If I were in Toronto, I would wear  my Swarovski crystal belt with my orange kimono. Never thought of doing this, before. I would pile on the jewels, mostly costume, because they are fun. That's the main, thing, don't take it too seriously, enjoy and have fun. Iris lives what she says, for sure.

But here, we have our own chic looks from Jillian Harris, (Love It Or List It Vancouver) who always inspires us to look great, even in the rain. And, she dresses up everything around her, especially houses, that start off as wrecks but end up as your dream spaces. Tonight, she was hosting a wonderful event in support of the Children's Wish Foundation. Would love to see her style up all of those Vancouver store windows like those fabulous ones at Holt Renfrew!

My festive look: Red trench, colorful silk wrap from Cassie Dee, (Aniimiism) gold top, firefly and leaf necklace from Carolyn Bruce, leather pants and velvet booties from My Sister's Closet. Red cat sunglasses - yes, it was a sunny afternoon, in Vancouver.

Kudos Holt Renfrew for donating 10% of Nov. 9th sales to Children's Wish Foundation. And, it was great to be welcomed with snowy shortbread and hot chocolate. Sweet!
