Style Icon Thursdays!

So, here is my new feature!
Every Thursday I'm going to share one of my favorite style/fashion icons.
Brian even volunteered to do a few male posts for me!

We're going to start out with my favorite Audrey Hepburn.
We all know her best from
Breakfast at Tiffany's, My Fair Lady, & Roman Holiday, but whether she was in a movie or day to day life she looked amazing.
Here are some of my favorite looks and photos:
 



 



 


 





Other than the My Fair Lady dress her look is so simple and not fussy.
Simple clean lines and body flattering shapes.
I also love that she wears a lot of stripes.  I've always loved stripes and polka dots.

I always explain my design aesthetic at school as clean lined, romantic, and nostalgic, and I think her look hits all of those points!



Here are a few quotes I found:

"If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all." 
"Let's face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me." 
"I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles"

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles"

"For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness, For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people, For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry, For Beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day, For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others."

  2. Y'know...I have never seen Breakfast at Tiffany's, but I love My Fair Lady. I think what makes Audrey such a timeless beauty is that she always looks so happy!
