Fashion Quotes for Notes


    December 3, 2016

    imageWe are approaching the end of 2016 and we are getting in the festive mood, so I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the notes for quotes I collect.

    Because we are all global citizens living in a fast digital world with confusing and changing times ahead of us, just reading words can be an oasis of rest, calmness and inspiration.

    Ive been taking note of quotes since 2008 ( there’s already a post on my website). Some of them are fashion-related or come from people in the fashion industry. But it’s also sentences I came across in articles or interviews with men and women from all different areas, which keeps it revealing and interesting.

    I hope the following Notes for Quotes will do you good !
