I thought this link up was very fitting, since those of you who are following me on Twitter know that while working on an article for my work I spent a good chunk of my day watching the classy and glamorous Audrey Hepburn in the ever classic:
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Sadly, this was my very first time watching the iconic film (I know, I know, please don't unfollow me just yet!). I had finished watching The Graduate on Netflix (another legendary cinematic experience), and the movie suggestion popped up, almost shaking it's screen-head at me for not having watched it before. I figured "Why not, I'll put it on in the background as I finish up these paragraphs." But five minutes into the movie, I was forced to put my laptop to the side due to my engagement with the movie's plot, mixed with the gorgeous yet simple outfits that Audrey flaunted. Why had I not seen this film before?! I quickly fell in love with the film that every girl can't help but watch on a quiet, cozy night alone.
Audrey's struggle to find herself in the big city hit so close to home. I never knew who I really was when living in the concrete jungle of California. It took me moving to Texas and making some drastic changes to really begin to see the real Sarah. Audrey had such a big guard up against love (an impressive one filled with marrying rich, powerful men, at that).
This movie is now on my instant queue in my Netflix account, and will be watched several times for as long as they have it up. I'm so glad fate finally brought me to watching it!
Also, on a side note, I will have an undying gratitude and forever be in debt to the person that can get me an eye mask and ear plug's like dear Audrey's here:
So what's your favorite movie? What's your "it" film to turn to during a sick/lonely night in? Do you prefer the classics or the new up-and-coming?
