A woman after my own heart, her love for jewelry came at an early age. Her thought on personal style was "enough is never enough", quite the contrary to Coco Chanel who always taught us put everything on and before you walk out the door take one piece off (referring to jewelry). She loved all the glitz and glamour, most of the time you would find her dripping in diamonds and emeralds along side dramatic dresses and elaborate up-dos! Eventually, her love for jewelry turned into what we know now as House of Taylor, alongside her self-aclaimed book "My Love Affair with Jewelry" and how could we forget her perfume, White Diamonds. She gave the word FABULOUS meaning, always dressed for success no matter the time of day or what she was doing. Truth be told this was what she was famous for; don't get me wrong she was a good actress but she was more famous for her extravagant style.
Remember when I first talked about style and how what you wear shows the world who you are and who you want to be. She wanted to look and feel fabulous so that is how she dressed each day and we all knew it. She said "I never worried about good or bad taste" and she certainly portrayed that through all her wardrobe choices. Even though I do think you can wear to much jewelry, she somehow was able to carry it off in such a chic manner. At the end of the day it is about personal style and what makes you feel good when you put it on. She is almost like a tone downed Lady Gaga when it comes to extravagance with fashion. I will put it to you this way, some women can just pull off anything and she just happens to be one of them. And we are not all actresses, so we do need to dress appropriately for the occasion for which we are attending. Personally, I would still stick to Coco Chanel's philosophy about accessories! :) However, one thing I do think that she had right was choosing to DRESS TO PLEASE HERSELF, once you do that you are half way to really honing in on your own personal style. This also goes back to being in "fashion" is easy but having style comes from within. So again do not just buy whats trendy just because its the latest trend buy what looks best on you and you feel your best in!
We loved her because she stood out and always made a statement with each outfit showing us her confidence within herself and protruding class at the same time. So what statement are you making with your wardrobe choices?
