03.04.11 stacy-london-2

Want to be the most stylish woman in the room? Real style starts from the inside.  Stacy London, fashion expert and co-host of  TLC’s What Not to Wear, recently visited Manhattan’s 92nd Street Y on the Upper East Side to chat about more than just fashion, stressing that self confidence is what makes a woman chic and trendy. Cotton Candy is sharing a few of her inspiring quotes from that night which left us feeling confident and bold. And dolls, we hope it will do the same for you.  Enjoy.

Stacy on Style:

“Base your fashion choices on what you want to feel.”

“Remember.  Bright colors are modern and trendy.”

“Trends come and go.  But as long as you dress for your body, you’ll always look good.”

“Cut is always more important than color.”

“You can always find the right clothes, if you know your body.”

“The way you dress is one way to tell the world who you are.”

“Be honest about what you like about your body.  Then simply highlight it in your style.”

“If you’re going to be stylish, you have to look in the mirror and like what you see.”

“Style can be an obstacle or a tool.  It can be an obstacle that blocks, if you let it. Or it can be a tool to help you feel the way you want to feel.”

“With age should come wisdom – and that includes your style.”

“Style can’t replace what you feel about yourself.  But style can enhance what you feel about yourself.”

“If you want to dress like the stars, remember celebrity style has to be filtered through you for your body.”

“Before you buy clothes you should always ask two questions: Are you going to use them enough and will they bring you joy?”

“With personal style, you get to paint your own canvas – your body.”

Stacy on Life:

“Scars on the inside and out – they make you who you are.”

“Notice.  But don’t judge.”

“Aspiring to be an impossible Hollywood standard denies us to be who we really are.”

“Who you are doesn’t just come from what you are wearing.”

“Don’t let the internalization of images around you rule your style.  Know yourself.”

“Instead of using someone else as your aspiration, remember you are as unique as snowflakes.  Start with you.”

“Say yes to your body.  Say yes to your image.”

“Teach yourself to be accepting of who you are.”

“You are who you are.  There is no one like you.  Remember, you’re as unique as a snowflake.”

“Build your life on top of what you’ve been given.  Do the same with your style.”

“If you want inspiration, just look in the mirror.”
