A page from her book

MADEBYTRANDE on 21st Apr 2014

As you can see from the MADEBYTRANDE pintrest board "fashion" we have a love for COCO CHANEL!

She is the  inspiration for this months blog. One of the many thing she has said that I agree with is "dress like you're going to meet your worst enemy today." She said it right. Especially in today's world! It seems like people always have cameras ready to take pictures to post when you're looking a mess. But when you've got your look together no one wants to take any pictures. Needless to say I've learned my lesson. Dress like I'm meeting my worst enemy... After trying this a few times I'm happy to report it works like a charm!

How about this one... "A woman with good shoes is never ugly." It's true and just a natural thing for women to love shoes. My thought is if a man thinks women should wear heels... then I should have as many as I want! According to COCO "Everyday is a fashion show and the world is a runway." I overheard someone saying they don't do comfort when it comes to fashion. In my head I was thinking WFT!!!?? But you know what they say... beauty hurts. I disagree. You can look good and be luxurious and comfortable right?? Again according to COCO " luxury must be comfortable, otherwise its not luxury." Yes I was right!

Some of the things I personally loved about COCO is how she did what she wanted and didn't follow anyone's rules. She made her own and it worked every time. She layered on her jewelry like no ones business and don't get me started on the pearls! And just like myself she was not afraid of perfume. "A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." Thank you COCO CHANEL for all you have done for the fashion world...cheers!
