Inspirational Quote: What would Coco Chanel say? ♥ Цитат за семицата: Какво би казала Коко Шанел?

A drawing of Coco Chanel wearing her signature pearlsHappy new week! I didn't have any idea what I want to tell you this Monday until yesterday afternoon when I walked into the Chanel store at Covent Garden. Looking at the legendary logo and the beautiful perfectly tailored pieces I started thinking about Coco Chanel - the woman who was no one and became the one. She was such an extraordinary, determined lady who didn't let anything or anyone break her down. I cannot think of a better way to start the week than reading some her wise words.
Честита нова седмица! Нямах никаква идея какво искам да ви кажа този понеделник до вчера следобяд, когато влязох в магазина на Chanel в Covent Garden. Гледайки легендарното лого и красивите, безупречно изработени дрехи се замислих за Коко Шанел - жената, която от никой се превърна в легенда. Била е толкова необикновена, решителна дама, която не е позволявала на нищп и никого да я пречупи. Няма по-добър начин да започнем седмицата от това да прочетем някои от мъдрите й думи.

Life is like a box of chocolates ... You never know what you're going to get. Coco Chanel

"Животът е като кутия шоколадови бонбони ... Никога не знаеш какво ще получиш."

Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. Coco Chanel
"Не си губи времето като блъскаш по стена, надявайки се да я превърнеш във врата."

My life didn't please me so I created my life.
"Животът ми не ме удовлетворяваше, затова създадох живота си."

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. Coco Chanel
"Най-смелото нещо все още е да мислиш за себе си на глас."

There are people who have money and there are people who are rich." Coco Chanel
"Има хора, които имат пари, и хора, които са богати." 

How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but someone. Coco Chanel
"Колко много тревоги губи човек, когато реши да бъде не нещо, а някого."

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. Coco Chanel
"За да бъде незаменим, човек трябва винаги да бъде различен."

Success is often achieved bu those who don't know that failure is inevitable. Coco Chanel

"Успехът често е постиган от онези, които не знаят, че провалът е неизбежен."

And don't forget:
И не забравяйте:

"Живеете, но веднъж; можете поне да се забавлявате."

Stay tuned for Coco Chanel's fashion & style advice next Monday! :)
Не забравяйте да се върнете отново другия понеделник, за да прочетете модните съвети на Коко Шанел! :)

Coco Chanel, together with Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior invented Fashion again in the 20th century. They will always inspire us. One of my favorite quotes of hers is also: "a woman has the age she deserves" true, right? :)
