bulletin board wisdom

In prepping (or procrastinating) for moving day, I sorted through the multiple layers of magazine tearings tacked to my bulletin board.  It's interesting to see how tastes evolve.  When I reached the first layer, I found several fantastic quotes clippings.  Bear with me, as a few are missing their by-line:

Choose clothes for the life you live, not the life you desire.  And if you find a piece you're crazy about, buy it in multiples.

I would like to see a little more creativity.  Dress for yourself.  Surprise yourself.  Impress yourself.  People will notice.

I've learned to never fantasize about being a lady who lunches.  It's much more fun to be a woman who lives.

When a woman becomes her own best friend, life is easier.

My beauty ideal is that modern woman who is slightly not put together.  I think imprefections are beautiful.

Don't criticize other women.  Makes us all look bad.
Do throw out your five-year plan and be open to the unexpected.
Don't become obsessed with accessories.  Become obsessed with knowledge.  Accessories come and go; knowledge lasts forever.
Do remember men are people.  Don't change for them.
Do figure out what you love to do and do it.  From there, all good things will come.
