Happy 130th Birthday, Coco Chanel!


French fashion icon and pioneering female entrepreneur, Coco Chanel, turns 130 today.

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
― Coco Chanel

French fashion


Among many accomplishments, Coco Chanel brought the breton stripe to streetwear and completely redefined women’s wear as we know it. Her philosophy has always been one of understated elegance and class, the true pinnacle of French fashion today.

I love remembering Coco Chanel’s legacy by sifting through some of these inspirational quotes. Chanel was more than just a designer, she was a true business woman with great advice on “shaking things up.”

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”
― Coco Chanel

For me, that’s the kind of legacy that lives on 130 years, even after the body has retired. Here’s to 130 more years of women shaking it up!

How will you remember Coco Chanel?
