I love Audrey Hepburn.
It’s a little known fact to anyone who really knows me.
I longed for a mentor. Crazy that a young adolescent such as myself would even know what a mentor was but I craved one nonetheless.
I picked two mentors, actually, and have gobbled up everything they stood for.
#2 Audrey Hepburn
I actually went to the Oprah show a few years ago. You can read about it here. It was truly amazing!
I named my daughter after Audrey Hepburn (and Grace Kelly)!
Audrey Hepburn was always someone I could relate to somehow.
She was different. She was lovely.
She was my inspiration.
Lofty goals to have these two as mentors, I know.
Today, I’m going to show you how I was inspired to decorate my walk-in-closet Audrey Hepburn style.
Odd that I might use my walk-in-closet as my “shrine” to Audrey Hepburn but in fact it’s the perfect place!
Every morning when I get dressed I’m totally inspired for the day but all this loveliness.
And yes, I’ve been very spoiled over the years with many trinkets from Tiffany’s.
I’ve seen the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, so many times I lost count.
I broke the VHS video I had from watching it too many times back in the day!
Whenever I felt sad, I’d watch it.
Or Roman Holiday.
In fact, I’ve seen every one of her movies.
I even bought the perfume she made with Givenchy.
I love ballet flats because of her and skinny capris.
When I went to New York in 1998 the first place I visited was the flagship Tiffany’s store near Central Park. I was in awe.
This side of my closet is where I keep my gym clothes, jeans, bags and some of her books.
My husband installed a tiny chandelier when we first moved in for me.
My adoption certificate sits on the top shop with the famous bags.
What about you? Who inspires you?
And would you decorate your walk-in-closet as I did?
Do you have ‘Moon River’ in your head now?
