10 Classic Coco Chanel Quotes

January 23rd // 2 Comments

After seeing the Chanel couture show earlier this week I started thinking about Coco Chanel and the impact the French designer had on the fashion industry. Where would be without Chanel and the Little Black Dress, the tweed suit, the No. 5 perfume? She reinvented herself and found success after making hats in her spare time – starting a haute couture revolution. Here are ten of my favorite Coco Chanel quotes to celebrate her legacy and if you want even more Chanel (who doesn’t?), you can watch Coco Before Chanel, a 2009 biopic starring Audrey Tautou. xo

10 Classic Coco Chanel Quotes

  • “The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”
  • “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
  • “Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. ”
  • “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”
  • “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
  • “I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”
  • “How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”
  • “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
  • “The best things in life are free. The second best things are very, very expensive.”
  • “There is time for work, and time for love. That leaves no other time.”

Amber Riley Launches Plus Size Boutique Rileyland Fashions

January 22nd // Comment Here

I am a big fan of Glee star Amber Riley and was thrilled to learn that she recently launched her own online boutique. Riley is seen as a style role model for plus-size women – she’s got a great eye and her own unique style. In a pretty genius move, Riley teamed up with her sister to launch Rileyland Fashions where fans and customers can shop her favorite looks from her own closet!

Amber Riley Launches Plus Size Boutique Rileyland Fashions

“My sister and I are clothes fanatics and since so many of my curvier fans always express that they like my clothes I thought why not clean out my closet and fill up all of yours. The clothes are affordable and most are never worn! There will be an official website coming soon with more than one of [a] kind clothing and more sizes for you plus size cuties!”

Riley and her sis even set up an Instagram account for fans and customers to take a look at what’s available (dresses, tops and even shoes!) – most of which immediately sold out! Way to go, girls! Riley is a positive influence for girls everywhere, she embraces her body and has the self-confidence to match. I am so excited that she can share her wardrobe with other girls around the globe. What do you think of Riley’s new online boutique? Would you purchase items from her?

Chanel Debuts Futuristic & Feminine Couture Collection

January 21st // 1 Comment

Chanel debuted its spring 2014 couture collection earlier today and Karl Lagerfeld has put the classic Coco touch (think tweed and black and white) on sporty 90s trends like spiked hair, sneakers and fanny packs. What’s old is new again? At least in a glam sort of way! And you have to admit – the futuristic yet femininely structured mini dresses are absolutely fabulous.
