When Chritstian Dior was aked: "what is the key to good dressing?", he said : "There is no key! If there were it would be too easy, rich women could buy the key and all their fashion worries would be over! But simplicity, grooming and good taste-the three fundamentals of fashion-cannot be bought. But they can be learned, by rich and poor alike."
All women thrive to be elegant, without actually understanding what it means, they buy tons of clothes, bags, shoes. They match them well, maybe even too well, a little too common and a little bourgeois; the bag is the same color of the coat or of the shoes, old style, not actually elegant.
Elegance is innate. It's an attitude; it has nothing to do with what you are actually wearing! You can learn to dress well, but that doesn't necessarily mean you also learn to be elegant. You move a certain way, you sit a certain way. The hands, the face, they have a sort of elegant attitude in the movements.
Elegance is not even about height or weight. It's a gift, a natural attribute. It proves clothes are not what make you elegant. It doesn't depend on the price, embroideries or how rich it looks. Natural elegance inspires the mind
Happy birthday, Mom!
