It’s safe to say that Coco Chanel is my absolute hero. I’m by no means alone in this adoration. Surely, 99% of the women in New York consider her a goddess and would happily spend their life savings on a Chanel bag. That’s a 99% I’m proud to consider myself a part of.
Coco Chanel left behind so much more than just a fashion empire, her vision for life and luxury lives on in the hearts and minds of fashionistas everywhere. I just came across this inspiring bangle on Endless.com engraved with one of Coco Chanel’s elegant quotes that relates very well to my current existence as an Aspiring Socialite. The inscribed quotation, “There are people who have money and people who are rich,” truly resonates with me during this incredibly ambitious stage in my life. Having the name “Coco Chanel” engraved on the inside of the bracelet is an excellent touch. It’s easy to be blinded by ambition.
According to my definition, being a socialite is so much more than just being wealthy. It’s about living your life exactly how you want to and encouraging others to do the same. I plan on purchasing this bracelet to wear everyday as a constant reminder that ambition without grace and class is worthless.
Here are more of my favorite Coco Chanel quotes. There are just so many and they are all my favorite:
“I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you at all.”
“In order to be irreplaceacle, one must always be different.”
“How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”
“I imposed black; it still going strong today, for black wipes out everything else around”
“My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.”
“As long as you know men are like children, you know everything!”
“A woman can be over dressed but never over elegant.”
“I don’t do fashion, I AM fashion.”
“You live but once; you might as well be amusing.”
