    I like the quote about style meaning being yourself. I totally agree with that statement as there are lots of people that are not what is typically seen as ‘fashionable’ but are stylish.

    My favorite is definitely the last one and it’s so widely applicable. But I love all the quotes. I have always been a big fan of Oscar DE LA Renta dresses. They are simply beautiful.

    These are all great quotes! But my favorite is Love, Be Curious. Always do your best. My parents used to say something very similar to me when I was growing up.

    Such a fashion legend! I totally agree with being yourself when it comes to style. Otherwise, you feel awkward in whatever you’re wearing and that’s no fun for anyone.
