wise words from dvf

(vintage DVF via weheartit)

i'm obsessed with diane von furstenberg. she's the fashion mother i never had. actually i shouldn't say that because my mom was pretty stylin back in the day (curses to her for not keeping any of her old clothes though!) and will tell me when something looks so great, or so 2000-late.

let's call DVF my fashion godmother instead then. :)

in all the fashion docs and behind the scene vids i've seen of her, DVF always dishes out these amazing words of wisdom. i could listen to her tell stories all day long. she's just like that wise grandmother, that's really lived a full life and is so insightful and loves to share her past experiences and lessons she's learned to help and inspire you.

even during her brief brief stint on season 1 of mtv's the city, she took time to give some advice to our dear whitney port (see the clip here. sorry i couldn't embed the vid). here's what she said:

"The most important relationship you have in life is the relationship you have with yourself, because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself."

gilt did a great segment on her for their unracked series. check it out and fall in love with DVF too.

"It's important to pay attention in life, to pay attention to the detail, to pay attention to what people tell you, to pay attention to people's feelings."
