Words of wisdom from the best

"Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future" - Coco Chanel
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." - Audrey Hepburn
"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." - Marilyn Monroe
I taped these quotes up on my bedroom ceiling, so that I would be reminded of how these three ladies have influenced my life in one way or another. Whether it's Coco Chanel's early declaration of feminism in the face of a male-dominated fashion industry, Audrey Hepburn's sophisticated yet innocent grace, or Marilyn Monroe's embrace of her imperfections -- they've shaped the best of me.

I will most likely be on hiatus until Tuesday, December 18th because I'll be in Las Vegas for cheerleading nationals -- zebra-print hairbows, uniforms bedecked in rhinestones, glitter make-up -- there should be cheer fashion shows, don't you agree?

In the meantime, share your wisdom with me: who has influenced your life and what are your life mantras?
