Holly Does the Laundry

Style icons like Marilyn, Audrey and Brigitte continue to inspire fashion editorials all over the world. In this cute shoot for Swedish Elle photographer Jimmy Backius turns his lens on Holly Golightly doing the laundry ... in her socks!
One day before I die I will wear a bouffant. They look like a lot of fun.

Speaking of Holly Golightly, in October I'm lucky enough to be promoting a gorgeous new companion book celebrating 50 years of Breakfast at Tiffany's. I've already got a few samples on my desk at work and I can vouch that the book is positively scrumptious. I had to present the book at my work sales conference and so I was inspired to watch the film again recently.
While some of the themes in the film are a bit dated, Holly herself is still a breath of fresh air + the art direction and outfits remain divine. That film is always going to have a place in my heart.

Look out for a giveaway here on the blog come October.

Oooh I think i will need to buy this book.... I'm a massive fan of the beautiful Audrey - my book shelf is crammed with books about her, her style and her films.
