Inspired… Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn was elegant, chic, kind, talented and simply gorgeous.  She was beautiful inside and out.  She was a muse of famous french designer Givenchy and yet volunteered in Africa, South America and Asia for UNICEF.

She is still famous for her roles in movies such as Roman Holiday, SabrinaThe Nun’s Story, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and My Fair Lady.  My favorite is Funny Face.  (Check out the amazing designer dresses.)


When I was young I would curl up on the couch, under a blanket, and escape for hours to the amazing world of classic Hollywood movies and musicals.  I loved these movies, where a happy ending was almost always guaranteed.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” – Audrey Hepburn

“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.”

As a jewelry designer I can’t help but smile at the quote below.

“You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you”

Color Story – Coral Rose

Today we are having a dark, miserable, overcast day.  I needed to work on something bright and cheerful and so Pantone’s Coral Rose it is.  I love this color and can’t wait to see it on a bright sunny day.

The spring and resort fashion lines for 2011 are loving this color too.  Take a look.

Diane von Furstenberg Spring RTW 2011

All this beautiful dress needs is a pair of statement earrings.

Tory Burch Spring RTW 2011

Here Tory’s used a short collar necklace, but I can also see a long opera length with gold chain.

Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2011

I always love a bright color with crisp white.  I love the straight leg pants with this wrap blouse.  Perhaps a shorter chain necklace and pendant would fit perfectly along the decolletage.

I haven’t added this with the other color stories, but here’s a sneak peak at what I’m working on.
