Over the weekend, I was reading one of my favorite stationary designer’s (Elie Fournier) blog. She reminiscing about “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” and the love of pearls that the beautiful Audrey Hepburn created for all women:
I’ve always loved the feel of a nice pearl necklace when I put it on. It makes me feel very girlie and that I belong to a movie from the Golden Age of Cinema.
One of my favorite images about pearls is that of Audrey Hepburn getting out of a cab in front of Tiffany on Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The necklace is made up of 5 strand of pearls with a diamond brooch on the front… Simply flawless!
So I suggest run to the video store, grab your favorite LBD and send all your friends a nice note about how nice it is to be a girl while you watch the movie.
The Vintage Couture line of jewelry made by 1928 has an amazing multiple pearl strand necklace, very similar to the pearls that Audrey wore. It not only accentuates the beauty of a black dress, but it also adds instant glamor to a simple tank top and jeans (make sure you wrap the necklace to create four strands).
