Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Before last week I had never watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

And to add to the embarrassment of reaching 25 without seeing this classic film, I hadn’t remotely appreciated what I had been missing.

Thankfully this has now been rectified, I have now seen the film (at the wonderful Rooftop Film Club no less, see my review for Romeo Says So here) and I am completely and utterly in love with Audrey Hepburn, or Holly Golightly I can’t quite be sure.

Incredibly charismatic, and managing to combine an extravagant while charming dress sense, I have a new and pretty serious girl crush – move over Miranda Kerr!

These are my favourite aspects of her look:

– Dressing as she wants no matter the occasion
