I love Halloween. And ever since I was little, I have chosen to dress up as women and characters I admire. I have 3 Halloween parties to go to this year, and I'm going as Audrey Hepburns' Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Most dress up as her in the opening scene, peering into Tiffany's with a scone in her hand. Always trying to be original, I opted for her apartment scene, right before she meets her love interest Paul "Fred" Varkjak (George Peppard).
Donning her Tiffany's blue sleep mask and trying to sleep off the party she threw the night before, Paul buzzes her apartment in attempts to get to his new place in the building. Her orange cat named Cat paws at her to awake, and finally she arises and dresses in the closest thing she can reach for: a men's formal white button down. Holly meets Paul at her door, slowly realizing her purple fringe ear plugs are in her ears as he asks her four times if he could use her phone. The phone is then found her suitcase as she tells him, "I'm crazy about Tiffany's."
I did a cute little shoot with Naomi Lynn Photography in my own apartment to capture this year's costume. All the details for my costume are below for you to either pull together last minute or plan for next year! It was SO easy for me and so much fun to collect these iconic pieces. (THB: I've been using the sleep mask every night since I got it in the mail.) Have a happy Halloween, friends! Xo
