Some words to live by

Coco Chanel, legendary designer, fashionista and powerhouse made some bold statements during her life. She built the house of Chanel and left a legacy behind that will, I'm sure, speak for itself in the decades to come. 

It is time for me to pay homage to the woman who went down in history for popularizing menswear for women and pursuing expensive simplicity. Please enjoy the following quotes from one of this century's most innovative and driven women.

"A girl should always be two things: Classy and fabulous." 

"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different."

"Fashion fades. Only style remains the same."

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

"As long as you know men are like children, you know everything!" 

"Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable."

"A woman is closest to being naked when she is well dressed."

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

"Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury." 

Shortly after Chanel's death,Karl Lagerfeld took over the House of Chanel and remains to this day as the face of the company.
