Select Quotes:

“People have that opportunity to create their dream job, you can do it. It isn't just words, I am actually living it. So it is pretty amazing.”

“I think that following trends is really overrated, because trends come and go. It's more important to have your own personal style that you live by and that you enjoy and that is original. And that's what really inspires people. You aren't following someone else's trend, you are creating your own trend.”

“Anything that you have in your closet, that you put on and don't feel good in it, you should get rid of it. You should only wear clothes that when you put it on you feel fabulous.”

Marie's motto: “Everyday is special, and everyday deserves a good outfit.”

“People really underestimate the affect that the physical image they portray has on how they feel.”

“To be number 1, you have to be an odd number, you have to be odd.”

Build Freedom,
