May 4th, 1929 - January 20, 1993
For as long as I can remember I have idolized Audrey Hepburn. Even in high school I tried my best to dress like her, watch her movies if they were on television, and as I grew older would read book after book about her, from biographies to how to type books, and I use her quotes in my blog, on Twitter, Facebook , gaining incite to a complex and truly lovely person. I own no less than 5 or 6 little black dresses, I own a similar hat that is in so many iconic photos of her and even own long black gloves. I obsessed about Tiffany, because of two scenes out of the movie that made every young girl want to have breakfast in front of their windows and own any small item from there ( I single pearl necklace)...Audrey, yes, she has been a huge part of who I try to be, at least on some small level. That being the case, how could I not pay some kind of tribute to her on her birthday? 

Often I dress just like this!
Roman Holiday
Love this book! Full of great fashion quotes!
One of the first books I read, and tried to follow so much of in my own life.
Glorious in Pink....
A vision in white....

Iconic inspiration that started my obsession with black dresses and pearls!
Dripping in diamonds, yest she out shines and dazzles.
This sent me on the hunt for a similar hat....
My own attempts to emulate....

Forever lovely!
