Coco Chanel – Fashion and Fabulous Life

fashion and you

Coco Chanel on one of her quotes says, that “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.

Even the simplest women in the world, has some fashion within her, she just doesn’t know how to make it work and eventually let her heart open to new possibilities and changes.  When, i was younger, i never imagine myself a fashionable one, poor in money and things, I just rely on the things i have and make it work not to make myself feel good or to be able to belong to some one company or friendship but because it’s me.

I believe that being fashionable is also a state of mind, if you think you are and you will be one. You need to be fabulous and graceful even under pressure and hardship.  I remember someone told me before, that she doesn’t understood my fashion, that i have no taste but just by hearing those words, I have created that scenario where she noticed me.  Other may see that I am different but who cares, Coco says that it’s better to be slightly underdressed because on that instance, others will look at you.
