For the first time in at least six years I actually put forth a little effort for my Halloween costume. This year I was invited to a costume party with some friends and coworkers. Normally I raid my closet or the nearest thrift store for something sufficiently costumey. However, with everyone in my office chatting excitedly for the past two weeks about the work they were putting into their Halloween garb, I thought it fitting that I do the same. I wouldn’t want to be the only one who came as a generic thrift store witch after all.
And what better way to class up the night than by arraying myself in the pearls and little black dress of the stunning 1950s film and fashion icon, Audrey Hepburn in her role as Holly Golightly. The polished look of her characteristic high updo, pointy toed heels and long black gloves impart a whole new confidence to the wearer, especially in today’s casual world of t-shirts and sweats. I need a little more Audrey in my life.
