To immerse myself with fashion this summer I downloaded the Chanel app for my iphone (its free!) and bought this darling book. Since I will be 21 soon I thought that I should at least try to be as fabulous as Gabrielle Chanel. Maybe make this blog a little bit like Julie and Julia but more like Karalyn and Coco. Everyone says how I do not take risks and that I am scared to fail. I need to be more fearless and an in your face bitch like darling Chanel.
"It is always better to be slightly under dressed."
This concept is so hard for me. I love dressing up. I want to look my best even when I go to classes. How will people believe that I can dress others if I cannot dress myself, I think. When most people dress down to go to Walmart, I always make sure that there is thought behind my outfit. Is it possible for us to even under dress in the society where jeans and a tshirt is the go to outfit?
"Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn."
These are words to live by. Do I even know who I am never mind what I want to say? I don't believe I have the self esteem to not give a damn. How did Chanel ever do it? Was it because she had nothing to lose? Then again, neither do I. For an orphaned girl to end up becoming a millionaire, Chanel must have done something right.
