Personality & Style – How Do You Set Yourself Apart?


Last week I mentioned some of Coco Chanel’s style tips that I use to achieve my own personal style. This week, I’m focusing on two of Coco Chanel’s tips that will really help set you apart from the crowd.

Personality & Charm


In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.
-Coco Chanel

You could be the most gorgeous person in the world, but if you have nothing interesting to say, how memorable are you? You could walk around with rainbow hair in a mohawk and that will get you noticed but is that the kind of attention you want? There are definitely people who are “look at me” types but I don’t think Coco Chanel was speaking to them. I think Coco Chanel was talking about personality and charm.

Remember, it’s not just how you look – it’s what you’re thinking, saying and doing. The sum of all of your actions are where we see your true personality – and everything that is unique to you – shine through.

Elegance & Grace


A woman can be over dressed but never over elegant.
-Coco Chanel

Many times what sets you apart is how you act, how you carry yourself – the little details. For example, if you see a woman shuffling along or stomping in her heels that are too high – it doesn’t matter how great they look because it gets lost in the sloppiness of it all. On the other hand, if you see a woman glide in with good posture you notice the woman – and more often than not, she leaves an impression.

It’s what I like to call “Always A Lady.” It’s my personal philosophy of personal etiquette and grace – life lessons on looking and living like a lady. Whether you’re a CEO or business owner – living the mantra of “Always A Lady” doesn’t have anything to do with a woman’s place but instead on embracing femininity and what makes us different – knowing that femininity is powerful as well.
