Time Off

I am just taking a few days off before the new year, hoping to regather my scattered holiday cerebral.
And a big thank you to my friends and family (especially the husband).  What a wonderful Christmas it was.

Cheers, Sami

Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 11

On the eleventh Day of Christmas... 11 famous quotes regarding style and fashion...

Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.  
-Yves Saint Laurent     
Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.  -Mark Twain    

I would rather lose a good earring than be caught without make-up.  -Lana Turner    

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.  -Coco Chanel        
They think him the best dressed man, whose dress is so fit for his use that you cannot notice or remember to describe it.  -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world. -Marilyn Monroe    

Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.  -Gore Vidal

Create your own visual style... let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.  -Orson Welles

A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.  -Sophia Loren   
There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.  
-Audrey Hepburn

Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness, simply didn’t know where to go shopping.  -Bo Derek
