Photography by Christine Choi

As I made an accidental  turn in downtown LA, I somehow ended up here….this amazing Audrey wall!  I haphazardly pulled over and parked illegally for a few minutes (don’t judge me….Its nearly impossible to find parking in downtown!) just so I could run outside to snap a few photos. Luckily I was with my photographer, Christine Choi, who shoots VERY quickly!

Anyways I’ve always been inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s classic & feminine style. At a very young age I was exposed to classic movies, such as Roman Holiday, Sabrina, and of course Breakfast At Tiffany’s, as they were my mom’s favorites. I recall watching these movies and having the urge to grow up so I could start wearing pretty little dresses! Now that I have grown up, thanks to Audrey (and my mom),I have a vast collection of little black dresses. And it just so happened that I was wearing my favorite knitted Kenzo LBD the day that I found Audrey (on a wall that is).

    So strange that such material made into a dress can be that sexy looking.

    Hope none of the officers read your blog so they don’t charge you for parking illegally 😀

    Love the dress, it’s simple and sheek, the deep cut at the back is very flattering and those booties are a killer. Fate or destiny you call but it was meant to be that you were wearing all black and there were no officers in sight so you could take the photos

    How cute!! Such a great coincidence to run into this, I haven’t been able to run in to this yet, hopefully soon! 😉 xo

    p.s. your knitted dress looks absolutely comfy and adore the detailing on the sleeves.
