Being Audrey, in more than one way

1 Comment 25 February 2009

Hello all. Thanks for being so patient as I fell off the face of the Earth (yet again). Without going into too much detail, the economic crisis has mucked up my life and I’m afraid I must spend the majority of my time trying to make ends meet until things improve. So I’m sorry for the lack of updates, but thank you for being loyal and hovering about, waiting patiently for more news.

Just now I received a letter from a lady named Michelle, and she has some interesting information that New York Audrey fans will love to hear, I’m sure. I’ll just copy and paste Michelle’s words, since they say everything that needs to be said so well:

Being Audrey is the story of Claire Stark, the new York woman who has it all: a beautiful life, marital and social bliss, and a view of Tiffany’s from her Fifth Avenue apartment. When calamity strikes and her fairytale world threatens to collapse, Claire seeks refuge in her imagination, where she embarks on a hilarious, romantic adventure inspired by the films of her heroine, Audrey Hepburn.

catching up

Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I apologize again and again, it’s all my fault and my lack of a good regular Internet connection. Did everyone have a fun Halloween? Did you flood the streets with Holly Golightlys? 🙂 It seems the costume guide from last year held up pretty well, and while I didn’t receive any complaints, can you think of any way to expand or improve it? I’d love to eventually do a costume guide for a number of Audrey costumes, but since Holly Golightly is the most easily recognizable and easiest to shop for, I figured that was the safest bet.

Speaking of being easy to recognize in costume, I found myself without a costume the morning of Halloween, due to a fabric malfunction the night before. On short notice I ran out and got a black turtleneck and borrowed some loafers, and hit Hollywood as Jo Stockton (Funny Face). There were loads of people there, but through the whole night I only heard 10 people (not counting my two companions) realize it was an Audrey costume! I guess I should have tried that outfit the year that Gap commercial came out. Anyway, at a party later on in the night Holly Golightly, Eliza Doolittle and Jo met up:

Target loves Audrey!

No Comments 05 May 2008

Living in Southern California (again) means having to drive, lots of freeways, and access to Target stores again. I’ve been going a lot lately hey, I need things and they have them and I always see at least one Audrey portrait hanging in the art section. Today I went to a different Target, because variety is the spice of life, and found this cute tote!

Knit your own Holly Golightly!

No Comments 06 December 2007

By now it’s a pretty well-established fact that I love knitting and keep trying to force it on everyone else. Consider it one of my charms. 🙂 While going through my morning Audrey news search, I found a new knitting book called Knitted Icons: 25 Celebrity Doll Patterns, a crazy cool book that has patterns to make 25 of the most recognizable celebrities, all in vaguely voodoo doll-type form! You can see Audrey Hepburn as the instantly recognizable Holly Golightly to the left for proof that this is, in fact, a really cool book.

The costume contest is closed now, and we had so many fab entries! Even though all of these lovely ladies were channeling Audrey Hepburn, they each managed to have their own style as well and be completely unique about it. To give each of these ladies some room to shine I’m going to break up the last of the entries (the ones okay with sharing their pictures, anyway) into two groups. And so, without further ado, is part two of your Audrey style:

another great Holly Golightly sleep mask

No Comments 26 October 2007

Yet another great Audrey find today! The mastermind behind How to Be Lovely (aka Life is Marvelous) has found a really fantastic Breakfast at Tiffany’s sleep mask. The Fred Flare version of Holly’s turquoise mask is part of the “How to be Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly For Halloween” post, but this new mask is just amazing. It’s an exact replica of Holly’s mask, down to the three-dimensional eyelids with gems peeping out as the sleepiest little eyes.

There’s some big news today! Huge thanks to sharp-eyed reader Alanna for finding out that the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund is set to release a limited-edition line of handmade Italian purses with Audrey’s image on them! There are 12 different designs, with 36 bags of each design being made. So that means a scant 432 bags were made, making it very limited edition.
