Today the fashion world lost the icon Karl Lagerfeld. In my little corner of the world I have always admired his innovative style, art and creativity. Of course his designs didn’t fit my lifestyle but, never the less his fashions inspired what we wear and how we wear it.
The trickle down affect of fashion from top to the bottom of the rung. I had to laugh a little at one of his quotes I spotted on Instagram when I hopped over to see what was being said about this amazing, creative fashion genius.
“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control and bought some sweatpants.” Karl Lagerfeld (ref)
Why did I chuckle? Because working at home you can be in your sweatpants, which often times I think can tend to make you be in a more relaxed mode. I was just online shopping for fashions that I could wear while working from home, with the mind set that you can be a creative, working from home and not be in sweats all day long. Lord, I don’t want to lose control. And no I didn’t buy sweatpants.
“Why should I stop working? If I do, I’ll die and it’ll be all finished.” *ref *
