It’s Friday Fashion.
In this era of globalization and uniformity, where everyone must look the same to fit in, I rebel. I want to see more people interpreting originality and I want to see more people inventing their own style. Don’t let anyone flatten you to the point of non-existence. Stand out from the crowd, be the crowd leader and you will have followers. The masters of fashion did and that’s why the world recognizes their exceptional work and creativity even after their passing.
“The woman who wears no perfumes has no future”
~ Coco Chanel ~
“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants”. ~ Karl Lagerfeld ~
Totally agree with Karl. Sweatpants belong in the gym only.
“Think pink, but do not wear it” ~ Karl Lagerfeld ~
I will add “Wear it only when it means something” like this outfit in the photo below.
“The most important piece in the house is the garbage can”
~ Karl Lagerfeld ~
Get rid of clothes that don’t bring out your beauty, or don’t accentuate your personality. Get rid of colors and lines that don’t suit your texture. Reassess your body every five years and make changes accordingly.
About Black – If you want to disappear in the background and want be part of the wallpaper keep wearing black all day long and nothing will happen to you. Colors instead will vibrate a positive aura around you and people will respond well to you.
Pretty versus Elegant – No words needed here.

Shoes will tell a story about you:
Are your shoes cleaned and polished? You respect yourself.
Are your shoes plastic or leather? You might like to buy inexpensive items to change often or expensive items to compliment your outfit.
Are your shoes fashionable or outdated? You might care or not at all about your look.
Are you wearing shoes taller than your height? You might have identity problems.
Do you walk like a duck when you are in high heels or fall off the shoes often? You need to take a class on how to walk in high heels.
Iris is a fun woman, she never stops having fun with clothes.
I think a woman’s goal is not to introduce as many plastic treatments in the body, age is inexorable and it will come. The goal is to keep staying healthy as late as possible, eat well and good food that will help the skin staying elastic and supple as long as possible. Use colors suitable to the changes of life and have a great attitude.
“La seduzione si vende in vari colori e sempre a maniche lunghe perché lo charme non abbia età”
~ Lina Sotis, Italian Journalist ~
Translation from Italian: Seduction is sold in various colors and always in long sleeves so that charm will not have an age.
I will never stress enough how important colors are for our living spaces and for the clothes we wear. Colors account for up to 90% of the impression we make on others. Colors vibrate energy, they can uplift our mood or make us feel down. As far as the long sleeves….well, when certain parts of our body are not perfect anymore, it is better to cover them up in style.
Classy and Fabulous – Become friends with mirrors. Keep them everywhere. Look at yourself in the mirror often. Before leaving the house take one more look at you, are you missing something, or maybe do you need to take something off? That last touch will make a difference.

I can’t argue with either one of the last quotes.
