Take a cue from Coco Chanel

In the words of Coco Chanel, "I don't do fashion--I am fashion."

It is said that when Coco Chanel passed away, she only possessed 5 or 6 pieces of clothing in her wardrobe. She understood how to make every piece do double, triple, even quadruple duty, and she epitomized fashion and class until the very end.

Why is it, then, that we feel the need to keep buying piece after piece after piece of clothing for our wardrobe? We only wear 20% of it anyway. Did you also know that we waste 9 years of our lives shopping only to toss or return 80% of what we purchase?

I encourage each and every one of you ladies to keep your wardrobes simple. Make sure that the few pieces you love are of good quality, flattering cuts, and of course in your color palette!

Live in color,
