The Eccentric Dames Society™ Hall of Fame
This is our collection of our flamboyant, outrageous, and outré role model ladies (with a few honorary “ladies” thrown in for good measure). They are fashion icons, artists, writers, entertainers, and leaders. They are all exceptional. Some are fictional…all are larger-than-real-life. They inspire us, and we aspire to them. We love them all dearly. Do you have a fabulous Eccentric Old Lady icon you think we should know about? Drop us a line!
