“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.”

– Oscar de la Renta *Dressed (via glamour)

“Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion. A runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.”

– Oscar de la Renta *Dressed (via glamour)

“But do you know this idea of the imaginary homeland? Once you set out from shore on your little boat, once you embark, you’ll never truly be at home again.

“All we have is the story we tell. Everything we do, every decision we make, our strength, weakness, motivation, history, and character-what we believe-none of it is real; it’s all part of the story we tell. But here’s the thing: it’s our goddamned story!”

– Jess Walter, Beautiful Ruins (via quoted-books)
