You gotta have style

"You gotta have style.
It helps you get down the stairs.
It helps you get up in the morning.
It's a way of life.
Without it you're nobody.
I'm not talking about a lot of clothes."
Diana Vreeland

Always sophisticated, classy and fabulous.
Mrs. Vreeland was a leading lady and an inspiring icon.

Diana Vreeland (July 29, 1903, Paris, France – August 22, 1989) was a noted columnist and editor in the field of fashion. She worked for the fashion magazines Harper's Bazaar and Vogue and the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Diana Vreeland about fashion magazines : "What these magazines gave was a point of view. Most people haven't got a point of view; they need to have it given to them-and what's more, they expect it from you. [...] It must have been 1966 or '67. I published this big fashion slogan: This is the year of do it yourself. [...] Every store in the country telephoned to say, 'Look, you have to tell people. No one wants to do it themselves-they want direction and to follow a leader!'" (1984)
