Mood: Wearing my personal 'N°5 de Chanel'

I'm a Noupe subscriber and today I read an interesting article about Multi-Layered Design: Guidelines and Examples.
Why am I writing this? Because of a sentence, that captured my attention:

Coco Chanel recommended that when a woman got dressed in the morning that she remove one accessory before leaving the house. The idea behind this is that we often tend of overdo things and by removing something we give more importance to the things that remain.

[Gabrielle Bonheur 'Coco' Chanel, 1883-1971]

Not only I totally agree with Madame Chanel and with Noupe's blogger, Cameron Chapman, but I'm also asking myself - and you too, of course - if it's possible to follow this advice... every day, everywhere, for everyone. Can this advice become the 'A' rule in a life?
