July thus far has been filled with dinners, parties, and social events.  I was excited to receive an invitation to a friend's Breakfast at Tiffany's themed engagement party earlier this month...what a fantastic opportunity to channel one of my all time favorite fashion icons.  I decided to go for a modern Hepburn look, with a black and white lace top, vintage-inspired peter pan collar, high-waisted skirt, pearls, and Audrey's signature high bun.  I added the pink accessories to keep things fresh and modern.  There's this classy, ladylike vibe about Audrey that I just love... she never goes out of style!   

Who are your favorite fashion icons? 


Love, S

  21. But The Daily Telegraph's science writer Tom Chivers said people can use screens and still talk to others, and research shows those with an active life in social media tend to have a home. You do not need as much skill, strength or speed to look like the daughter of Dr. Piracy has been around for centuries.
