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


  1. seriously an amazing post beautifully written xx

  2. Those Boden picks are perfect 60s. And would totally suit you too. xx

  3. I should of been born in the sixties!

  4. I've not seen the film before but know of its iconic status in pop culture, Audrey Hepburn is definitely one of a kind as you say. The 60's evening sounds amazing though, and I really love the Boden jumper in the second pic! xx

  5. I'm so in love with this film. I wear my hair like Audrey in the second photo- with a beehive and pigtails and it looks brilliant. I just love it when she's wearing that outfit and smoking at the fountain and she goes, "Oh, I love New York..." Magic! x

  6. This film will never get old. Ever. <3
