“Frivolity is the key to eternal
youth.”  -Ines de la Fressange
Ines
I had to take a brief break from
the Paris Collaboration for the Morning of Beauty already on my calendar.  But I cannot help but think that my new style
icon for the last year, Ines de la Fressange, would  have approved of such an event!  A day of encouragement, empowerment, and
pampering….I can see her all in for that!!
I first read and wrote about her
book Parisian Chic: A Style Guide By Ines de la Fressange last summer in this post..  It by far is one of my most
popular posts.  What I really have
learned from her is: SIMPLICITY HAS POWER…less is more, if you will.
Up until the reading of her book, I was much
more over the top with accessories.  I
would wear large earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and watches all at the
same time.  Since I read the book, I have
stopped predominantly with the large earrings. 
But if I do wear them, there is usually no accompaniment by a necklace
or scarf.  Some pieces she loves that I
also love are ballet flats and a great fitted jacket.   I also added navy blue to my wardrobe after
reading the book.
Ballet flats are from Target Shoes
I thought for today, I would share
with you what she says on page 123 for obtaining lifelong beauty, because there
is great wisdom here:
1.      
Be well-groomed.
2.      
Smell nice…you need to pick up the book to see
how she feels about perfume.
3.      
Look after your teeth with professional cleaning
every six months.
4.      
SMILE!
5.      
Be indulgent.
6.      
Be nonchalant and forget your age  (YES!)
7.      
Be cooler and more easy-going.
8.      
Be less selfish.
9.      
Be passionate about a man, a project, a
house.  It’s an instant facelift.
10.  
Do only what suits you.
11.  
Accept that there will be bad days.  And make the most of the good days!
No big jewelry because the jacket is the star.  Jacket and travelers pants are
from Chicos
I AGREE COMPLETELY!
