Coco Chanel quotes

I really enjoy quotes. They can be inspirational and entertaining and I like that they can turn into a mantra for your life. Coco Chanel has said many memorable things, and I recently stumbled upon quotes of hers that I had never heard before and I loved every one. These are my favorites..

Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.

Fashion fades, only style remains the same.

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.

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

There are people who have money and people who are rich.

What are some of your favorite quotes?

Oh, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Coco Chanel! :0) In fact, my new book was influenced from this quote by her:

"There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time."

I gather you'll be going to see/have seen "Coco Before Chanel"? :0)
