“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”
- Coco Chanel
Maybe a little vanity is okay. It has always felt like a waste of time to me ... but deep down we all know that to look lovely is to feel lovely. It's one of the harsh (non-gender-specific!) truths of being human.
It might just take some time, money, and energy. We'll still have plenty left for all the books, right?
