Audrey Hepburn, we love you so.

“You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you” - Audrey Hepburn

No surprise that P and I are majorly obsessed with the one, the only, the legendary Audrey Hepburn. Maybe it was my outfit today (Theory black neck tie sleeveless top and pinstripe trousers), but I have been preoccupied with the Audrey Hepburn style all day long. Classic, elegant and timeless.

Who doesn't want to channel Ms. Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffanys while she window shops and eats a croissant and drinks a latte? Who doesn't want those oversized sunglasses, cigarette extender and strand of pearls? Who can't thank Audrey Hepburn every time they slip on a pair of ballet flats like Princess Ann does in Roman Holiday? Nina Garcia (Elle Magazine's Fashion Director) reminds us in The Little Black Book of Style that the 1950s signified the "first marriage of a designer and a movie star - Audrey Hepburn and Givenchy." And while it's certainly not the 1950s anymore (thank goodness), the definition and epitome of style remains. Excuse me while I pop in my Audrey Hepburn DVD collection and throw on a cozy black cashmere sweater (it is only 54 degrees in Boston right now afterall).
