Coco Chanel, my muse, my inspiration...

This amazing 1920's inspired editorial by photographer Mr. Steven Meisel, reminds me back to the famous quotes from Coco Chanel.
“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
“A girl should be two things:classy and fabulous.”
“The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!”
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
“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” 
"A woman that doesn't wear perfume has no future."

Not only was she brilliant in the design icons she created, Chanel was one extraordinary lady who inspires me daily. Merci Coco!
 These are some amazing quotes that I try to live by everyday. What are yours?
