Anybody that knows me, knows I am not the Chanel type. Not that there is anything wrong with the Chanel type, but being a protégée of Jackie Kennedy who could probably have rotated the same ensemble to every congressional event in a different color, is just not my gig. God rest her gorgeous soul. However, Coco Chanel was a brilliant woman, and her quotes floor me, because no matter what your fashion style, they just fit. Check ‘em out:
"A women who doesn't wear perfume has no future."
I think this about sums it up. I am a downer on smells ... smelly mom, smelly kids, smelly anything, I totally take note when someone is wearing perfume and when they aren’t. I love various scents … mostly florals. Perfume sets the mood, and tells everyone, yeah, I am clean, and you can come closer. It’s the icing on the cake after a shower, or the cover up for no shower … your pick, but smells evoke all kinds of memories from the good to the bad, so, amp up the florals, the cedars, or the musks, no matter what your plan is.
"It is always better to be slightly underdressed."
I get her point, and I beg to differ, but I get it. If you look too overdone, you look too overdone. Personally, I HATE being underdressed for anything, which is why I dress every day. I think no matter what, stay within your comfort range and don’t try to be anything you aren’t. A sporty girl who tries to go glam may not be able to walk in Louboutins and look like a fifteen-year-old wearing super heels to the prom.
