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.

Nice play on the little black dress!

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

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

I love how you made it look effortlessly chic by pairing it with some edgy booties.
So pretty!
