Category — Rawther Fabulous
I’m reposting what I had written last year in honor of Audrey’s Birthday ~ Bon Anniversaire, darling! Ching, ching, my Huckleberry Friend!
The world sparkled and shined the day the beautiful, incomparable Audrey Hepburn was born. Her generous and philanthropic spirit was an inspiration, and made her even lovelier in life than she was in her films. Not only did she have style in spades but she was a true lady ~ she carried herself with poise and grace, and treated others with kindness and respect. In my book that makes her one in infinity.
So “clink!” to the Birthday Girl and her memorable silver screen personas – Holly, Sabrina, Princess Ann, Jo, Joanna, Eliza, Regina, Gaby – and all the other fabulous characters brought to life by the unforgettable Audrey.
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe tomorrow is another day.” ~Audrey Hepburn
“I’ve got to do something about the way I look. I mean a girl just can’t go to Sing Sing with a green face.” ~ Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s
“Oh, but Paris isn’t for changing planes, it’s for changing your outlook! For throwing open the windows and letting in… letting in la vie en rose.” ~Sabrina Fairchild, Sabrina
“I hate this nightgown. I hate all my nightgowns, and I hate all my underwear too…I’m not two hundred years old. Why can’t I sleep in pajamas?” ~Princess Ann, Roman Holiday
“Take the picture, take the picture!” ~Jo Stockton, Funny Face
“I’m three dimensional, as a matter of fact.” ~Joanna Wallace, Two for the Road
“The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.” ~Eliza Doolittle, My Fair Lady
“Marriage license, did you say marriage license? Oh I love you Adam, Alex, Peter, Brian, whatever your name is.” ~Regina Lampert, Charade
“Actually, depravity can be terribly boring if you don’t smoke or drink.” ~Gaby Simpson, Paris When It Sizzles
“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” ~ Audrey Hepburn
Channel your inner Audrey today ~ spin a Mancini melody, pop some champagne before breakfast, and queue up the Audrey classics! Enjoy, darlings!

“Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien
There is nothing as delicious as a brand spanking new start. So darlings, it’s time for us to strut down those never pranced-upon paths! Try something for the first time ~ it’s a New Year with new seasons, new styles and sunny sky-blue skies ahead. Ring a ching ching, 2013! I’m ready for you.

Jingle around the clock

Now this is what I call dressing yourself in holiday style! Photo circa 1961 ~ these party girls are bedecked and bejeweled with tinsel and ornaments atop their 42-inch hair. How fun are these tress toppers? Although I fear I would tip over…
