The 06/09/13 Joy Jar

9 Jun


Moi will be going to the ’30 Years of Japanese Fashion’ exhibit at Seattle Art Museum at the end of the month. To beef up her fashion chops moi went to the movie, ‘Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorfs’ which was a hoot and really showed the creativity of high fashion and those famous windows at Bergdorfs. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the creativity of high fashion.

“I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it.”

Alexander McQueen

“The only real elegance is in the mind; if you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it.”

Diana Vreeland

“Fashions fade, style is eternal.”

Yves Saint-Laurent

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.”

Gianni Versace

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

Coco Chanel

“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.”

Audrey Hepburn

“I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence.”

Yves Saint Laurent

You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”
Oscar Wilde

If one really wants to feel comfortable there is really nothing more comfortable than a comfortable, worn old pair of jeans. Moi has a pair which is sufficiently broken in. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is an old pair of jeans.

I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.
Yves Saint Laurent

Blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola.
Diana Vreeland

I like bootcut jeans in a plain style with a nice line.                                                  Martin Freeman

Ladies, beauty is not defined by the size of you jeans.

Robert Escalante

Jeans represent democracy in fashion.
Giorgio Armani

Moi likes to go easy on the makeup. On the weekends, she likes to go at least one day without makeup and possibly two. Just foundation, blush, and eyebrow pencil. Even when moi goes without foundation, she still uses her eyebrow pencil. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is moi’s eyebrow pencil.


Just because you want to be glamorous, don’t be a sheep about your eye makeup.

Loretta Young



The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”
Yves Saint-Laurent



For the love of God, unless you’re prepping for Rigoletto at the Met, go easy on the eyeliner.”
Cheryl Cory



That’s the mistake women make – you shouldn’t see your makeup. We don’t want to look like we’ve made an effort.
Lauren Hutton


Whether you are sixteen or over sixty, remember, understatement is the rule of a fine makeup artist.
Helena Rubinstein


How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”
Coco Chanel
