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.
