Breakfast at Tiffany's

"What I found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany's. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there, not with those kind men in their nice suits, and that lovely smell of silver and alligator wallets. If I could find a real-life place that made me feel like Tiffany's, then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name."
Breakfast at Tiffany's

Like thousands of girls and women around the world, I love Audrey Hepburn. There's just something about her. Whether it be her classy, simplistic style, the unique and slightly odd accent in her voice, or the playful, genuine spirit she emotes through her films and photographs, there will never be another Audrey Hepburn. I've seen Breakfast at Tiffany's many times, which is arguably her most iconic role, Naturally, the opening scene at Tiffany's is my favorite as Tiffany's itself is such an iconic American brand. It also has it's own special place in my heart. My dad and I used to make annual visits to NYC every year and before my eight grade graduation, I got to pick out the Elsa Peretti heart necklace as a present right in the store.

During this trip to NYC, I got to fulfill my Audrey fangirl fantasy of having breakfast at Tiffany's. I grabbed a cup of coffee and a croissant and ate in front of the store with my best friend, Montana. We didn't even go inside; we gazed and admired the diamonds as Audrey had done fifty years ago, and I had done only seven years earlier.
