Like most iconic designers in the world of haute couture, Coco Chanel’s creative aesthetic was never abundantly clear. And while those with money have never required a justification for their lavish spending, she did offer them the following bit of affirmation:
Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.
If this sounds like bullshit to you, it’s because you have a brain. Coco was a Nazi spy, a titaness of opulence, and a veritable slut. Only one of these labels may be worn with pride. Fashion isn’t about who you are as a person, it’s about putting stuff on your body.
Guess what. That’s a tremendously cheap activity.
Save your hard-earned cash, and, in the name of vulgarity, rock the following fits:
Buy your items
Kill the look
Then do it again...
And wear your haul
