fashion vs. style

classy and fabulous
Originally uploaded by Needleworks, Inc..
This little lady doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up. In fact, she's having a bit of an identity crisis. At first she imagined herself as something exotic and delectable. Then she thought she should be more lady-like. She really can't decide.

On thing is for certain is that she lives by the words of the brilliant Coco Chanel, who said, "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."

"Rebecca, " she said to me pleadingly. "I don't want to be a faux fur collar. I want to be something fashionable. Something stylish."

"My dear," I responded. "Fashion fades, only style remains the same." (We both love quoting Ms. Chanel, what can I say?)

I feel for her identity crisis. I really do. She is lovely and sumptuously colored, but she longs to be something more enduring. Something classic. Something that I will love for all time and never look at and say, "What was I thinking?"

Something like this little jacket.

We have a lot of soul searching to do. We have to find just the right path for this little one. She deserves it. And so do I.
