WHAT SHE SAID...Coco Chanel



“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.”

Coco Chanel
(1883-1971)

Wouldn't hurt for gentlemen to pay heed as well.

And...if you can be ready to leave the house in less than 30 minutes, you probably shouldn't be leaving the house at all!

Good afternoon from Tokyo!

It's amazing how one person can say the simplest, most true thing, but phrase it so eloquently! Her words are just like her clothes: exceptional and timeless.

A lovely day to you and yours...

Warmly,

Elizabeth

Wonderful quote... Although I usually spruce up even to go to the grocery store, I still think I may put this on my bathroom mirror!
