A tribute to the style Goddess Divine...

A tribute to the style Goddess Divine...

Audrey Hepburn! and her love of boatneck dresses and tops.

I absolutely love the lines of boatneck tops and dresses. They looks so feminine and sophisticated and are often very slimming. The absolute best example of someone who sported boatnecks (and everything else) oh-so-well is Ms. Hepburn. Here are a few examples of her pulled from the style archives . . .




Completely gorgeous right? And don't we all wish we looked that thin all the time! This whole need for a tribute came about from seeing some cute things while scouring Lilly's site. So, in order of least favorite to I NEED TO OWN THAT!? here they are. . .

Classic Cotton Boatneck Stripped Shirt
French Connection
Aiden Maddox, Jacquard, and Jacquard
Eryn Dress is somewhat what I imagine my bridesmaids dresses will look like.
This is the same Eryn style, but in a fabulous navy stripe.
Chorus Girl Dress- I love it and really the boatneck I liked the most, 
after this, its just things I love from Lilly right now
Jodi Sweater is sooo presh! It is perfect for running errands, going to class 
or a day on the boat. Its all about how you style it. 

I'm getting ready for school, so of course getting distracted on Lilly's site is so appealing. lol. I've been putting off packing for so long and 90's Mom finally told me she couldn't take it anymore and I had to do something about all of my stuff everywhere! So I finally started today and I decided I had to limit myself to only one box of things besides clothes and food/dishes. I always take wayyy too many books.

 So I'm almost all done and trying to make decision about how I'm decorating. My brilliant idea of the day? I am hanging two ribbons several yards long above my desk and then using mini-clothespins clipping vintage postcards (My faves are S.C. ones) and pictures on them. 

So many changes on campus are happening. They are loosening up on some of the very, very conservative rules, so lets keep our fingers crossed that this means Theta Beta Pi has a real chance!
