“Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans – it’s up to you.
Don’t use expensive clothes as a screen for your personal doubts. Be proud of yourself and not only because you wear expensive designer clothes. They are great, but lots of people are happy without them. Don’t play the victim: It’s too easy. You come first, the clothes later. Reinvent new combinations of the clothes you already own. Play with it. Improvise. Become more creative. Not because you have to, but because you want to. Evolution is the secret for the next step.” – Karl Lagerfeld in Harper’s Bazaar (March ’09) on recession dressing.
(But. It’s ok to be cheeky and hide behind Mr. Lagerfeld, right? *winks*)
