    Whoever Knew FCUK & Audrey H. Go Together?!

    Audrey Hepburn's outfits in her movies NEVER fail to inspire me;





    A couple of days ago, while shopping at FCUK, I came across a front pleated shirt which reminded me so much of what Holly Golightly (Breakfast At Tiffany's!) wore in that particular scene when she climbed out of bed to open the door for Fred;

    I don't normally go for tops which button all the way up but I just fell in love with how simple and chic this white, pleated buttoned up top is!



    Wore it as a lucky outfit for my 1st day at school and I dragged my brother off to snap some pictures after dinner; and he took me to this nearby high rise estate;
    (According to Jason, you can take great pictures at the void deck! Well, YOU be the judge! LOL)






    Wearing;
    Leopard Scarf (Forgot Where I Got It From)
    FCUK Skinnies
    Starry Studded Flats; Got it from Taipei's Shilin Night Market
    MY CHRISTMAS PRESSIE FROM MOM & DAD!
    Prada Vernice Tote






    The leopard prints scarf was a last minute addition to jazz up the outfit;
    And I love how different the top looks; with or without it!



    AND I LOVE MY SHOES!

    Beckett sends love back to ya!

    I think i've just been uber stressed lately because i've been dreaming more often than usual. Coincidentally most have been about blogging or bloggers.

    Anyhoo Audrey has such a classic, clean and tasteful style. I think you did her and the shirt justice. Your smile is so beautiful dear

    Love the stars on your flats and Audrey Hepburn! The scene where she and the writer go around doing things they've never done before for one day is one of my favourite scenes in any movie, ever.

    I really like Audrey Hepburn in all of her films too.
    I saw that scene from Breakfast at Tiffany's when I was at a museum looking at an exhibition about fashion. They played scenes from Breakfast at Tiffany's there on a huge screen.
    I like your pleated top! Normally I have something of an aversion against white button-down shirts because they seem a little boring, but as I see now, there are major exceptions!
    Nice of your brother to take pictures of you!
    Wow, you have a Prada bag? (gapes) Is it your school bag?
    And I liked the touch with the leopard print scarf too!
    Nice outfit!!
