The Word

to be irreplaceable you must be different

It’s a little sad how excited I’ve been to share this image with you. This is the famous Coco Chanel quote, “To be irreplaceable, you must be different.” I spotted this in the window of the Chanel jewelry store in the Place Vendôme. See the little pieces of curled gold metal? These were attached to a white wall behind the window, and from afar, it looked like some weird, abstract metal art installation. Come a little closer to the display, and you see a light shining just above it. The shadow cast from the light hitting the curved pieces of metal create the quote. I thought it was the coolest thing I’d seen in a long time.

Truly different, totally irreplaceable. I hope this inspires you today!

The Word

everyday is another chance to wake up and be whoever you want to be

Sometimes when I’ve been in a funk, I find that waking up one day, putting on a great outfit, and actually blowing out my hair for once can make all the difference in the world. In other words, the littlest changes can shake things up and alter your whole outlook. Just in case your week didn’t start off on the right foot, here’s something to remind you that today is a whole new ball game. Happy Tuesday!
