~ Quotable Sunday ~ Coco Chanel



Happy Sunday!  Today's quotes come from Coco Chanel, inspired by my fashion diva Blondie!



“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”

“Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.”

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

“Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”



Now head on over to Toni's to find other great quotes!

    Hi. I'm just here visiting your site, and I have to say, I like it a lot. You have some great stuff to check out. I have a small blog that has been around for about 2 years. It's not big, I delete posts every now and then. But I invite you to come check out my site. I would love to have you over. :D

    I have days at work like that!

    yes, yes, yes... “Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”
    I need to write this on a post-it note and stick it to my computer screen. :)

    Chanel was a great designer, but not such a great person. Sorry to spoil it for you. Nazi collaborator, and tried to use the new rules against Jewish ownership to try and wrest her perfume name back from the people she had sold it to (without paying them back, of course).

    Her designs, however, will live in infamy. So no one remembers what a bitch she was.
