Audrey Inspired

The Holiday Season is all about fun festivities.  Over the weekend my family got together for a big reunion to celebrate my grandparents 60th anniversary.  Kind of awesome if you ask me!  In honor of the year they got married we were told to wear 1950s inspired attire for a dinner party.  When I think about the 50s I think about a true classic style icon, Audrey Hepburn.  And when I think of Audrey I think of her layered pearls and sparkles, and her chic black tank dresses.  I had luckily just ordered an adorably classic dress from J. Crew that I was hoping to wear a couple of times this holiday season.  I layered on some pearls and other sparkles, and threw on some feather trimmed heels.  The end result was a more modern take, but still an ode to the classy Audrey, one of my personal favorite style icons!
