We're on our way to southern Missouri for a weekend getaway but before we begin our road trip, I wanted to leave you with a little Audrey.


 Oh and before I forget, the winner of the wooden cherry brooch giveaway is.....Sean MacKenzie from The Fictionista

Congratulations! please email me with your mailing address. Everyone else, stay tuned, we have another lovely giveaway coming this week.

Anyway, on to Audrey, who made fashion history in her little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I think Audrey was one of the most influential fashion icons of all time. She always looked so flawless!
