all about audrey

31st December 2012

welcome back to the third && final holiday style stalking post! today i’m taking on the queen of class, audrey hepburn && shaking up her b&w style with my own takes on the a timeless look.

for my look i got inspired by audrey’s timeless stripes, whether wearing them on a dress or a little basic tee, no-one wore stripes quite like audrey!
I started by piling on the pattern (surprise, surprise) by mixing polka dots && stripes!
this dress is perfect for a holiday party or summer soiree, but not quite right for a brisk day. to make it work for december, i layered a turtleneck underneath && paired with thick tights to keep me toast!
 Since I couldn’t do a homage to audrey without pearls on pearls on pearls, I layered three of my favorite necklaces && bedazzled with a bow brooch.

&& I couldn’t be audrey without a little bit of leopard…
oh, && of course a red lip is required…

Audrey-esque

30th May 2012

today I was a little inspired…
by the one and only audrey hepburn“my look is attainable. women can look like audrey hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses and the little sleeveless dresses”

Everything old is new again, where black, bows, and big glasses never go out of style.
My newest kate spade celina dress oozes Audrey-ness. Adding the big glasses, bright lips and piles of pearls helped seal the deal. 
Although I like color, a two-toned look can also make a stylish statement. The creme and black throughout creates a chic and classic vibe while the massive amounts of pearls and girlie over-the-top accessories keep it flirty.
