"I'm just CRAZY about Tiffany's!"

I adore Breakfast at Tiffany's. The old-fashioned glamour, the streets of New York City, Audrey Hepburn, the jewelry, the fashion... sigh. I believe it was this movie that defined Audrey Hepburn as a style icon - she exudes such elegance throughout the entire movie which carried over into her true-life demeanor. Reading Audrey's letter to Tiffany's (which she wrote for a book celebrating Tiffany's 150th anniversary) confirms her grace and charm are indeniable. I cannot find a copy of the letter online, but you simply MUST hear it on the Anniversary Edition of the movie. Enjoy the pure eye-candy to follow.
This picture hangs on my wall in my cube... the dress, the diamonds, pure perfection. It also happened to be my Halloween costume this year.
Who could possibly look so chic while asleep?
Playing party hostess. I hope to have a coctail party reminiscient of this before moving out of my single-girl apartment and getting married.
Shopping at the one and only Tiffany & Co. To die. Fiancé and I sipped coffee while browsing the cases at Tiffany's once... is this the same thing?
Large-brimmed hat, statement earrings, LBD, and sunglasses - tres glamorous.

Pink and diamonds - possibly the most perfect duo in the world.

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." - Audrey Hepburn
