The movie Funny Face has been on my mind, so much so that I felt compelled to echo the spirit of Audrey Hepburn from the beatnik cafe scene. She’s such an iconic figure in terms of beauty and fashion, but what I always think about is that she broke the mold of the time. She was a former ballerina with a very boyish figure in a time when every woman was aspiring to the curves of Monroe. Hepburn’s beauty was not in chic, she was elfish and boyish, but her appeal was undeniable.
When I consider things like fashion trends, and standards of beauty I think of her and how her confidence and unique beauty shone through despite the critiques of her contemporaries and she became an icon for generations. So I always think that though it may not be in ‘chic’, who knows who the next Hepburn will be.

I always look at the images on the blogs I follow and than go back to read. As soon as I saw your pics I immediately thought of Audrey Hepburn! I had a laugh when I realized that the post was about her. I adore this outfit and her:)

That sweater is adorable and wearing it with the collar poking out and the black skinny jeans is just the perfect way to style it!

I LOVE that we have the same poodle sweater- I think you styled yours perfectly (saving as an inspiration for next wear!) You look beautiful-I love the thoughtful posing pic 🙂

@tinfoil – Thanks so much! And the thoughtful pose was actually a total accident. My timer was going off and I kind of slipped. Yay for happy accidents!
