Everyday Starlet

Audrey Hepburn

Everyday Makeup Look inspired by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Audrey Hepburn Quote, Breakfast at Tiffany's Lipstick, Revlon, Pink in the Afternoon, Holly Golightly Makeup Tutorial

I’ve seen so many Audrey Hepburn/Breakfast at Tiffany’s makeup tutorials, and while I love seeing everyone’s interpretation of the look, they all seem to be very dramatic and sometimes costumey.  Holly Golightly was a lady of the night, but her makeup was always so fresh and natural.  I wanted to take that look and create a tutorial for Everyday Starlets… this look is easy, and perfectly acceptable for any occasion.

Tulle & Peplum: Audrey Hepburn meets Carrie Bradshaw

Tulle skirt, peplum top, ballerina, Carrie Bradshaw, Audrey Hepburn, fashion

I wouldn’t normally think to put a tulle skirt with a peplum top.  To be totally honest, I was a little afraid to pair this skirt with anything.  After seeing countless cotton candy tulle skirts styled every way possible on Pinterest, I’ve always been tempted to take the plunge.  However, my curvy figure always said “uh uh” (my figure can get quite sassy with me).  So in my closet sat this skirt… until one day, when I was doing an Audrey Hepburn makeup look (on the blog tomorrow), inspiration came over me and I decided to pair it with a peplum top.  I don’t really know where the idea came from… but Ms. Hepburn always makes me think of pink and femininity.  I added my new studded heels (which are a knock off of Valentino, and give the outfit a little edge), and a clutch shaped like a perfume bottle… I think I was channeling Carrie Bradshaw a little with that one!  I’m so happy with how the look turned out, and the black peplum made the tulle skirt a lot less intimidating for my curves.

Audrey Hepburn’s Dove Dark Chocolate Commercial

I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about the new commercial featuring Audrey Hepburn and Dove Dark Chocolate.  Some people say it’s creepy.  I think, if it exposes the elegance of Ms. Hepburn to a new generation then it’s worth it.  I’d love to hear your opinion…

Here is the commercial…

Gardening Like A Pin Up

Gardening is a popular Pin Up and Glamour Girl pastime. It may seem unusual since it involves very un-glamorous things like dirt and worms… but it results in the beauty of flowers, plants, fruits and vegetables. Here are some tips for gardening like a pin up girl…

Dress the part

You can wear a pretty sundress, or a pretty apron that looks like a sundress.
