“How do I look?”Posted: September 17, 2014 | |
Here’s a story that is only tangentially connected to the outfit: I screened Breakfast at Tiffany’s for my students the other day. It’s been a while since I watched it all the way through, and I was suddenly struck by how… elegant it is. It’s not just Audrey Hepburn. Everybody looks so classy. Of course, saying Breakfast at Tiffany’s is elegant is like saying the sky is blue, the movie is like an epitome of elegance, but I can’t help thinking that if the movie was made today, the leads would probably be hipsters (Holly Golightly is totally a Manic Pixie Dream Girl) and the whole thing wouldn’t be half as charming. They don’t make ’em like that anymore.
So, all that preamble is to say that the simplicity of my outfit is probably influenced by the movie, and I quite like it. Should’ve worn black shoes though.
