Coco Chanel lived an interesting life and I think most people, like me, thought she led a charmed life. But she didn’t. She made her life. Her signature colors, black and white, where an homage to the nuns in the orphanage where she grew up. She was a survivor, too. She survived abandonment, poverty, and the loss of the love of her life in a car accident.
She was a seamstress who defined fashion and she’s probably shaped the world of fashion more than any other woman. She did live a charmed life in the end, the one she built. While I’m certainly no slave to fashion and I have no desire to own designer clothing, I can’t help but admire Coco as the self-made woman that she was. This quote says a lot about the woman Coco became and it’s something I will try to emulate in my own life. To leave people with a positive impression and experience when they spend time with me.
That’s my plan. :)
