There are many things that I love about Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Firstly, the novel was written by one of my favourite authors, Truman Capote. Secondly I feel like Ms Golightly, although beautiful in appearance, and alluring in aura, is very very emotionally damaged. I feel like it’s a trait that anyone who has dreams goes through. Anyone who has been hurt can understand where Ms Golightly is coming from.
Not only that, there’s something about Breakfast at Tiffany’s that makes me nostalgic of places I’ve never been to, and people that I’ve never met (or exist… book characters…) and also makes me fall in love with the idea of New York even more than usual!
However, it is also so beautifully classic with regard to the fashion seen in the film, worn by the elegant, free spirited Holly Golightly. Even the idea of keeping a stray ginger cat and taking daily strolls through Tiffany & Co. is so much more appealing when you’re dressed like so.
Honestly, since watching Breakfast At Tiffany’s at this age, I’ve developed a yearning to dress in gorgeous black Givenchy dresses everyday, with over sized hats, hiding behind the classic “Audrey” sunglasses.
