Becca Anderson, author of You Are An Awesome Woman, has written a new blog post full of inspiring quotes on why intelligence is a beautiful quality to have, take a look!
“Any girl can be glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid.”
“You don’t have to signal a social conscience by looking like a frump. Lace knickers won’t hasten the holocaust…and a mild interest in the length of hemlines doesn’t necessarily disqualify you from reading Das Kapital and agreeing with every word.”
“You get out of fashion what you put into it.” LORETTA YOUNG
“I’m not interested in age. People who tell me their age are silly. You’re as old as you feel.”
“If truth is beauty, how come no one has her hair done in a library?”
“I’m not obsessed by how I look or with being reed thin, but I do think that as a woman in my fifties, I have forty years ahead. Looking after yourself goes hand in hand with looking good.”
“Don’t buy clothes at the last minute, and try to decide what you are going to wear to an important meeting or a date night in advance. If possible, try the outfit on a few nights before the event and wear it around your apartment to make sure you are comfortable.”
“Elegance is refusal.” COCO CHANEL
“I began wearing hats as a young lawyer because it helped me to establish my professional identity. Before that, whenever I was at a meeting, someone would ask me to get the coffee—they assumed I was a secretary.”
