One of My Style Icons

Audrey Hepburn

"My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the big sunglasses, & the sleeveless dresses."

-Audrey Hepburn

So what not look like Audrey Hepburn for a day? She was one of the hottest starlets of her time! Now, she is a legend. I cant seem to get enough of her. She has such a classic face. Her style was simple, fashionable, and yet timeless. So, flip out your hair, put on some subtle eyeshadow and play up your eyes by doing a cat eye look with eyeliner (one of Audrey's favs), grab those big sunglasses (or sunnies as my friend calls them) and greet the day with a classic Audrey smile. Maybe even wrap a pretty scarf around your head.

Choosing a classic style and imitating it is always a goo way to go when you don't know what to do. Then, from there you can start to experiment with what you like and don't like. See what works together and what doesn't. Fashion is something fun to play with!! Some days you will get is perfect and get complimented every five steps. Some days something may be a little off, that's okay. One of the best pieces of advice I have been given so far is to take daily outfit photos. I learned this from Gala Darling and her fabulous blog. Use your digital camera or Polaroid or whatever kind of camera you have available to snapshots of you in your outfits everyday. This will help you see what works and what doesn't. It is also fun to look back at your outfits over time, and it catalogs your closet for you. Wow, everyone should do this!
Who's style would you like to imitate?
