Hi Guys, you know it is so inspiring to read about young girls and women being successful in areas of their life, I always find myself reading about them or watching movies & films about them.
I absolutely love to see people over coming challenges and having the power to over those challenges. The era we are in guys is a powerful time for us.
Ladies we are taking on the business world, the fashion world, and the world of politics with many more areas which inspires me. I hope it inspires you to, so I am going to share some of the stories and short biographies I have covered here so far at Loving The Sales
I start this selection in order of my previous blog post also from past to present. We have come a long way guys and have a long way to go.
Number 1 Fashion Designer
Coco Chanel, female fashion liberator
Coco Chanel was supposed to have license to design clothes back when she started her label. That certainly was not going to hold her back. This are some of quotes which will give insight into why she was going to be a worldwide success.
Coco Chanel Top 3 Quotes
“If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.” –Coco Chanel
“A girl should be two things: Classy and fabulous.” –Coco Chanel
“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” –Coco Chanel
Then Coco Chanel went on to designed and created The Little Black Dress (LBD).
A must have for every women who wants to celebrate her body the way we should. One of her top design creations. Imagine a uniform for all women of taste and how correct they were, think about it there is rarely ever an event that occurs that you have been to, where the Little Black Dress doesn’t make an appearance.
Comparing the Little black dress to the other famous beauty The Little Red Dress which draws eye attention through the virtues of nature. I will always side with the solid colour of Black which you know makes you feel instantly slimmer when you put it on as it hugs your skin tightly. The LBD flatters every figure, hides unwanted perspiration, stains and of course any unforeseen mishap which may occur when you wearing it out. Of course you wondering about accessories. Here is The Solutions K.I.S.S (KEEP IT SIMPLE SEXY). If your hair style will be up then add earrings, pearls for example, if your hair is down wear an imposing necklace. Done and you’ve already won.
Today you may also hear The LBD referred to as a Cocktail Dress which is fine for the occasion but the original may be renamed or reimagined but class never goes out of fashion so guys take it from me, fashion may come in and go out as we say but the Little Black Dress is here to Stay.
“Coco Chanel published a picture of a short, simple black dress in American Vogue.
It was calf-length, straight and decorated only by a few diagonal lines. Vogue called it “Chanel’s Ford”. Like the Model T, the little black dress was simple and accessible for women of all social classes. Vogue also said that the LBD would become “a sort of uniform for all women of taste” source Wikipedia.
The Coco Chanel Movie is wonderful. Her Story, Her Fashion, The Drama of her struggles with her Love is a must watch. Enjoy it as I did.
Number 2 Fashion Models
Click the pic for her Instagram its worth the follow.
Ashley Graham is one of the most recognized American models in the industry, gracing the covers of major fashion magazines. Ashley is a plus sized model who inspires all of us to love and embrace our different figures with her confidence and accessibility. She is an ambassador for the real beauty movement that has forced brands to reconsider their branding an marketing which I love.
Movements like this has forced brands such as Nike to create a full plus size for us to enjoy and not feel slightly embarrassed about it.
Diversity, difference and body types in The Fashion Industry. We are absolutely loving the fact the difference is now being celebrated widely in the fashion industry. The stories of the people who are spear heading these movement are inspirational. Let me share 2 short stories with you guys.
These 2 stories I have shared before I have written about them and keep find myself drawing inspiration from them. The 2 girls are on another level enjoy.
Daisy-May Demetre is a little beautiful 9 year old girl from Birmingham England who walks the fashion runways of the world in her blades. Daisy is a double leg amputee model and has with such brands as Nike, River Island and famous fashion designers.
This little powerhouse shows us all, no matter walk if you have the ability walk talk and proud of who you are. Daisy has is managed by this modelling agency if you would like to have her model your fashion brand Kids London Model Management
Ailbhe and Izzy Keane of Izzy Wheels
“Izzy Wheels is a Dublin based brand founded by Irish sisters Ailbhe (pronounced Alva) and Izzy Keane. The idea was inspired by Izzy who was born with Spina Bifida and is paralyzed from her waist down. Izzy always saw her wheelchair as a symbol of freedom but never felt it expressed her bubbly personality. Ailbhe created Izzy Wheels as her final year college project in The National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in 2015.
To have a relationship like this with your sister must be amazing, Izzy in particular inspire me to be more outgoing personally. Izzy does not use her wheelchair as a excuse to stand back she has joined the term “IF YOU CANT STAND UP, STAND OUT” power to you girl. We wish the girls continued success with their business.”
The Magnitude of what these girls are inspiring
In previous blog post if you have been following, you will know that that I have highlighted the fact that the fashion industry and social media can be a mean place sometimes when you are different from perceived model template.
But YES, here is two young beautiful awe inspiring ladies that saying I don’t care for template or status quo. I will strut my stuff down you cat walk like I own it, Daisy-May we are loving you here at loving the sales.
Then you have Izzy the girl who really does “Stand Out” The girl who really does represent what a positive attitude and some creativity can bring to the world.
Note to self on this post
Highlight what these girls are doing a lot more and find a way that we can help them sell their products. We will be in touch ladies haha.
Celebrity Bad Girls
“They move on from one beautiful young woman to the next MOST times without consequence. They are usually referred to as legends, heartthrobs, Ladies Man etc”.
I like this pic and quote because after a break of long time love Mr Hemsworth Miley is now free and single and because she has some dates she is getting called a slut which is unfair when below is her honest and insightful opinion of what a man is referred to in the same position. “Men (especially successful ones) are RARELY slut-shamed”.
Like or Love Miley she is standing up for equality and we deserve it, want it and we will get it. The ME TOO Movement was only the start of it and it girls like Miley that help get it moving forward.
Guys, spare a thought for young girls that actually have it beyond hard little orphan girls in Africa who live a daily nightmares we all are aware of but somewhat helpless to make a difference but again movements and people like Miley help.
The Queen of Bad Girls
RiRi is known for taking people on that she does not agree with, such as refusing the half time show at the Super Bowl to show her support for another great cause Black Lives Matter. We also love the fact she’s cool with her body and knows her weight fluctuates which inspired her to create her fashion line Savage X Fenty which will someday be worth billions of dollars.
And yes girls I mention money because its ok for guys to be ambitious and free so I want that for us to, so let take it from the top with Rihanna’s Business Bio below.
Rihanna is a Barbadian singer, fashion designer, actress, and businesswoman, who has been recognized for embracing various musical styles and reinventing her image throughout her career. Rihanna has an estimated net worth of $600 million which is such a powerful Statement to make in this so called man’s world. She is on her way to becoming a Billionaire along with all of the above.
Cheers to the freakin’ weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh let the Jameson sink in
And Cheers to the BAD GIRLS out there, wish I was one
Turn it Girls YEAAAAAHHHHHHHH and enjoy it in the back ground while read just as I am doing while I write haha.
Style Advice as a bonus
The Over-sized Shirt matched with shorts is the fabulous iconic look which come straight to mind when I think of Ri Ri this year. To me it shouts the Boss is here move over as she signed some major deals with LVMH and took the world by storm with her Lingerie Brand which included sizes for all of us lady’s. Come on guys she is a mogul we are LOVING Ri Ri forever.
Ok I nearly forgot my tip for you on this is to achieve look for free.
Borrow a shirt from your Boyfriend, Dad or Hubby and by borrow I mean as soon as I get makeup on it you’ll never want it back haha. Accessorize with a nice slim belt and a necklace like Ri Ri and you have a free outfit ready to roll.
Girl & Ladies Who Inspire, what they have in common
There are a lot of positive words that come to mind when you think of successful women but the major for me when I looked at these ladies is
Belief in themselves. Easy to write the word I know this personally when you get the jitters going on stage or posing for shoot in an outfit that leaves little to the imagination but they have it in spades. Like the ladies with a little self-talk to build your inner confidence, you too can build this strength.
“Yes you can do this and you will enjoy this” is mine personally. 10,000 times later it works haha.
Each lady Loves what they do, sometimes it is this simple. My two inspirational ladies Izzy and Daisy May both love there industry. Izzy loves creativity and design and Daisy May loves getting her hair and makeup down before she walks down the runway.
- Work Ethic
Talent will only get you so far in live guys, if you do not work like these ladies you will fall short.
Rihanna would daily have her dinner standing up as she learned her next dance retune.
Ashley Graham call agent and offer to model for free, I have given you tip before guys about learning how to get a job in the fashion and beauty industry. Work for free until they see you’re worth paying.
Coco Chanel done everything under the sun to get her business off the ground and even broke a bull shit law back then but she still drove forward to her goal.
Of course they are many other ingredients to make a successful women but to me and the ladies in family present and past. These are the corner stones, the foundations of how women can gain their independence, freedom and shine like diamonds we are.
Guys if you have any stories, movies or books of ladies who inspire you, please do share or leave in the comments below and I will get in touch and may include it in a future post.
Thank you guys, I know it’s a long post but that’s the point.
Finish what you start and enjoy what you do.
Loving conquers all.
