“Life is hard. It is not too short, it is too long. But you have to learn how to live; you have to have a sense of humor.”
“Elegance isn't solely defined by what you wear. It's how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read.”
“It's important to find what really suits who you are, because style isn't only what you wear, it's what you project.”
