A Date With Destiny? Wise Words From Coco!

I love quotes, and this is one of my favorites regarding one’s personal appearance:

“I can’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

Coco was oh-so-wise, and judging from her many male suitors she had no problem of lack of dates with destiny!  I think it’s also wise that she says that fixing yourself up is a polite thing to do.  I, for one, quite frankly get tired of seeing a sea of sweats, baseball caps and either too baggy or too tight clothes on everyone. Men, women, children, old and young have all seemed to have adopted a universal uniform of blandness.  Gray, navy and beige reign supreme.  Blah, dull and sloppy are paramount.

I really, really try to “fix myself up a little” each day.  I like to mix vintage pieces with contemporary and add some cool accessories.  I try to wear COLOR! each day.  I love wearing textured “tactile” clothing such as cashmere, angora, linen, and silk.

I sheepishly admit that I haven’t had many “dates with destiny” lately…but as Coco says…maybe today will be the day.  I try to be ready for any possibilities. 😉
