#ReadThis #FashionAlert #WhomYouKnow #CocoChanel Pocket Coco Chanel Wisdom: Witty Quotes and Wise Words from a Fashion Icon @HardieGrant @HardieGrantUK

Best subway reading ever!
It fits in your pocket, literally.
If you live in Manhattan, you know waiting for the subway is a drag and it's even worse when you get on.  Reading a book once you get a seat is not what it used to be, and compact book real estate is where it's at.  Regardless of where you read this little hit, Pocket Coco Chanel Wisdom is terrific to pick up any time and read bits here and there to truly brighten your day.

Before there was any girl in New York that loved fashion, there was Coco, influencer of all influencers.

"A fashion that does not reach the streets is not fashion."

"Couture is not theater and fashion is not art; it is a craft."

"A woman can be overdressed but never over elegant."

Of course this book starts with the subject of style; women, herself, life and success are the other chapters.

Previously on Whom You Know, we have reviewed:
and even did a children's book:

This book is fantastic for both its brevity and its size.  Also, despite all of the Chanel we have read, we found quotes we did not know yet.

Some obscure to us yet excellent:

"Adornment, what a science!
Beauty, what a weapon!
Modesty, what elegance!"

"Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future."

"Gentleness doesn't get work done, unless you happen to be a hen laying eggs."

"A woman with good shoes is never ugly."

"You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty and irresistible for the rest of your life."

Pocket Chanel is Highly Recommended by Whom You Know.

Coco Chanel was one of the most renowned designers of her time, creating timeless pieces such as the little black dress, chic quilted handbags and, of course, Chanel No.5. Known for her strong beliefs and fearless attitude, Pocket Coco Chanel is a collection of some of her best quotes.

'A woman should be two things: who and what she wants'

'You live but once; you might as well be amusing.' 'Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.'

Inspirational, stylish and fun, this is the perfect gift for the fashionista in your life.
