Advice From Audrey Hepburn…

Love on the Spanish Steps in Rome, Italy

I absolutely adore Audrey Hepburn, and one of my all-time favorite movies is “Roman Holiday” where she starred with Gregory Peck.  There’s royalty and tiaras, cute pixie hairdos, vespas, gelato, and, of course, Rome itself!  It’s really the ultimate chick flick, in my opinion, but I have always loved fifties retro even before retro was in (of course, retro is now more “eighties” in nature, which floors me and shows my age, but that’s another blog post altogether…)  So classic fifties clothing mixed with fairy tale motifs and travel to Rome?  Pure decadence!


Just Being Audrey

Just today I discovered that a picture book biography has been published about Ms. Hepburn called, Just Being Audrey, by Margaret Cardillo and illustrated by Julia Denos, and I am so excited to buy this book!  There is an excellent interview with the book’s creators at Jama Rattigan’s Alphabet Soup here.

In honor of my excitement, I have gathered a bit of “advice” from Audrey for today.  Enjoy!
