Sweet, Sweeter, Sweetest

26 Jan

Loretta Young.

If you don’t know who she is, google her.

Loretta is a symbol even today for “beauty, serenity, and grace.” Her glamour and stardom did not stop at the surface. She was also known to be dedicated to her faith and family (not to mention, anyone romantically involved with Clark Gable goes down in my book of awesome).

Through elegance, Loretta’s exquisite style encompassed her.

My favorite quote from Loretta is,

Fashion should not be expected to serve in the stead of courage or character.

All we talk about is style on this site. The newest boots. The best nail polish. But you might as well throw all of those away without a respectable character.

You are not stylish if you wear timeless Seychelles but act moronic on your on your Friday night date.

You are not a fashionista if you’re rocking black skinny jeans but are senseless when it comes to what you post on Facebook.

It’s not just about the trends. That is second when it comes to style. First, it’s about disposition.

Simply said, don’t act like an idiot.

I got this directly from a Hallmark Card. Well, that’s a lie. But it does sound cliched enough to be on one.

Nevertheless.

When you know who you are and love it, it impacts every sphere of your life. Find out who you are, who you want to be, and then use style, fashion, what-have-you, to create that. But in the end, Katie’s right. Fashion is nothing without character.

XOXO
