it’s hardly a new saying, i’ve heard it since i was a little girl & i’ve always believed in it. obviously, that new marc jacobs bag or those ever classic tory burch flats might pull together the perfect outfit, but without your presence, it all goes to waste. even the classiest & best dressed woman can ruin a million dollar outfit with a frown. audrey hepburn once said “i believe that happiest girls are the prettiest girls” & this is one hundred percent true. while i am in a constant love affair with clothes, i’m not naive enough to believe that clothes make the outfit. style goes far beyond being able to spot trends, pull off the latest fashion risk & being able to look pulled together. style comes from how you carry yourself. every classy woman knows how to carry herself with grace, dignity& a flawless smile. coco chanel herself once said “a woman should be two things:classy&fabulous” which in itself is the essence of style. i honestly believe that style has almost nothing to do with clothing, but rather your confidence, presence&attitude. a woman dressed to the nines could have positively no style, simply because she has no idea how to carry herself. the simplicity of a smile is something that so many people these days seem to forget. they’re losing the meaning of life, they’re losing their style. by getting lost in the mindless details of life & forgetting to stop&look around. people seem to forget all the positive things that happen to them & narrow in on every little thing that goes wrong. the world has developed a “glass half empty” motto and left the optimists in the minority. so the next time you do your mirror check before you leave your apartment or car, make sure you smile, because happiest girls are the prettiest & you’re never fully dressed without a smile. i can guarantee that you will look 10x better, feel 10x better & make 10x as many people’s days if you flash your pearly whites.
stay fabulous & remember “her life improved dramatically when she decided to break the rules & find beauty where she’d been told there was none.”
