I'm taking a break from my normal chick lit reads to indulge in a little (exaggerated) nonfiction. Described as "a modern look at the life of a legendary fashion icon--with practical life lessons for women of all ages," the book thus far has been enlightening and pretty darn inspiring. Coco had some major sass!
"Chanel was not just a straight talker, she was a back talker, a woman who embraced her own churlishness."
"You can't help thinking that Chanel's taste must have been genetic, that she discovered as a young woman what became her and never lost faith in it the way some of us do."
"It's an irony Chanel herself might have appreciated: To embody the Chanel style, it is not necessary to wear Chanel."
I've got a few chapters to go, and the gems just keep coming... the sign of a good read!
