Things / Breakfast At Tiffany's Edition

I recently attended a Breakfast At Tiffany's charity function. Held at Dolly's Tea Room & Wine Bar, and in aid of the Pink Wiggers, the event comprised of a special screening of the 1960s classic, based on Truman Capote's novella, with a variety of cocktails (served in teapots + teacups), and maple butter popcorn.

The event was also a fancy dress occasion. In true 1960s fashion, I took inspiration from style icon & world-famous supermodel Twiggy, exaggerating my eyes, slicking down my cropped hair, and donning a shift dress.

In celebration of the era, I thought I'd show you a few things I've found which relate to the film & the evening, which includes some small variations on the classics.

I find these just divine, and really need them to feel like Holly Golightly, or as close as I can be, anyway. I can just imagine making cocktails on the wooden chest, wild green nails rummaging through a del rey bag, and slipping lucia sunglasses onto my night owl eyes.
