Last week I was invited over to the Millennium hotel in Mayfair for a screening of Breakfast at Tiffany's. Heading straight from work, I made my way to Bond Street station where I met fellow bloggers Becky and Kylie before a delightful evening of champagne, cupcakes, sweeties and sixties goodness!
I would firstly just like to say that this film gets better and better every time I watch it; obviously it's a classic but I love how beautiful, devil may care and romantic it is. It's like a fairytale, and a very fashionable one at that! Throughout the film it's truly difficult to tear your eyes away from the glamorous sixties-esque outfits, as worn elegantly by Audrey Hepburn who plays the main character Holly Golightly.
I'm never going to look like Audrey, she's one of a kind, (though Olivia Palermo reminds me of her a little); they're both so dainty, graceful and impish. I can however steal her style, which surely is the next best thing!? Get Audrey's look with a classic little black dress, modestly cut and nipped in at the waist - this particular design from JOY has a lovely, low v back with a big chic bow! Accessorise with a chunky necklace, (think glamorous), and vintage clip-on earrings for the ultimate sophisticated, Breakfast at Tiffany's look.
I would wear this outfit out to a cocktail bar in the evening, or to a black tie event - I'd probably also add ankle socks and a chunky heel to make it "more me"!
For a more casual, day-to-day look, I took inspiration from the above scene in which Holly wears a slouchy beige jumper with boyish black trousers worn high on the waist and black flats. I've just ordered this 'Audrey jumper' from Boden, (notice the name), and can't wait to wear it in a similar way, perhaps with black trousers and a bright pair of mid-heel shoes!
Happy Valentines day everyone! xx
