If only I worked for Christie’s! At top, auction house employee Romilly Collins had the opportunity to model the original gown Audrey Hepburn wore in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” prior to its December 2006 sale. Designed by Hepburn’s dear friend Hubert de Givenchy, the gown wound up selling for a hefty $923,187. If only I had an opportunity to slip on such cinematic history…and have it fit!
I must admit that when I first saw the blue python handbag in the latest Tiffany’s advertisements I wasn’t a fan, but this far more understated reversible suede and metallic tote from the same debut collection is decidedly chic! I adore its classic camel/gold palette and the high-quality 24k gold plated solid brass hardware. Now if only they could re-shoot the campaign with the yummy camel suede!
Mr. Armour begs to differ, but I think our new apartment may be in need of an Alfred the pug custom pet embroidery. Can you imagine how much time (and skill!) a single portrait must require? I wonder if there would be an upcharge due to his many wrinkles ; )
