Breakfast at Tiffany’s

So I’ve just watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s (I know, where have I been all this while…*slaps forehead*) and I shall now conclude the many thoughts that was going through my head while I watched it.

P.S: don’t read if you haven’t watched the movie?

1. The cat is just too adorable. A ginger fat short-hair. That is like your stereotypical cat-next-door kind of animal to have. Love it! Even more so because I love cats in general.

2. Who doesn’t love the Manhattan sunglasses Audrey Hepburn is wearing in the movie? To no surprise, it’s made by Oliver Goldsmith, best renown for its many iconic sunglasses in the 20th Century. Gotta get a pair!

3. I am one to use earplugs on various occasions so it was only natural of me to notice her   blue tassel earplugs she wears to sleep. Super fancy no? So chic. I want one!

4. But of course, the little black dress! I love it. I love how effortless Audrey pulls it off in the movie. But then again, that was the style of the century and in this day and age, I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a long black gown and long black gloves out in the morning. Or would I?

5. It is amazing how chic and cool they make smoking look back then. Like you wouldn’t even stop to think about the side effects because you are too busy admiring Audrey’s cigarette holder -_- still, what a thought.

6. Everyone is a dahhling and a baby!

7. There are so many quote-worthy lines like I don’t want to put you in a cage, I want to love you! Oh Fred baby.

8. I wish society remained as classy as it was back then. Fashion has changed so much.

9. I can’t get over the cat. I want a ginger short hair too!

10. Nothing very bad could happen to you at Tiffany’s. I absolutely agree :)

Following this I couldn’t help but read a bit on the novel the movie was based on and then I found myself on some page producing a literary analysis of the story. I guess you could say Breakfast at Tiffany’s presents a story of a quintessential American girl migrating to the big city in search of transformation and reaffirmation of one’s place in society. Behind this facade of frivolity masks private delusion and a whirlwind of thoughts. As the analysis concludes, “there might be a little bit of Holly Golightly in all of us.” When you think about it on a deeper level, it’s quite true. Hence Truman Capote makes an excellent writer and I suddenly miss studying English Lit.

I don’t usually like watching movies twice but because Hepburn acts so well, I wouldn’t mind :)

    You should start watching Elizabeth Taylor now. Start with Cleopatra. Then read about her Love Affair with Jewelry ;-)
