I watched Breakfast_at_Tiffany‘s with my ma last night and had forgotten quite how divine Holly Golightly’s wardrobe is – you’d never get such a chic look in a contemporary film. Ok, now I sound like my grandmother – but it’s true.
Obviously it’s helped by the fact that Audrey Hepburn is one of the most beautiful people ever (fyi, apparently Marilyn Monroe turned down the role – what a blessing).
Although I LOVE the iconic Givenchy dresses, I actually found myself coveting the ‘day time’ outfits even more – the cute cropped jumpers and black trousers (the latter are such a simple but beautiful cut – where can I buy such a pair?!) the scarves, the glasses, the hats, the pearls and the coats. So utterly classic and chic. *sigh*
I try and stick to the rule ‘if a Parisian girl wouldn’t wear it, neither will I’ – it’s a weak attempt to learn to be stylish in a minimal French way and an effort to wean myself – slightly – off my love of kitsch and tattyness. I fail most of the time but after watching Audrey last night I feel inspired to give it another go!
