Audrey Marathon

Now that I am at 32 weeks, I've been staying at home more and more. For one, it's hard to waddle around the city, and I just can't seem to walk as fast as I used to. I am so obviously pregnant these days that people are now giving up their seats for me. Yesterday, an elderly man on the subway had his hands in front of my belly, as if preparing to catch me as I balanced myself by the door as the train approached my stop. I guess I do look like I am about to burst by now, haha! Driving can be a challenge too, I had to move the seat farther back so that Berry doesn't bump into the steering wheel!

So when I am not out running important errands, I'm usually at home - in the kitchen, cooking or baking, or in front of the TV watching movies from Netflix. The past couple of days, I've been queing Audrey Hepburn movies, to Dear Hubby's consternation, haha! So I have been under strict orders to watch it asap, while he is at work so he can get to his movies queue right away! Audrey Hepburn movies are my idea of a chick flick - the fashion! the romance! the singing and dancing! And I'm sharing my love for Audrey with Berry as early as I can, so that she grows up as gorgeous, elegant, stylish and timeless as Audrey too!

Of course, with nothing else better to do, I took some screenshots of some looks from two of Audrey's movies to share with you! The fashion is just so inspiring, sigh!

How To Steal A Million (a fashion extravaganza with clothes from Givenchy and accessories from Cartier!)

What is it with Audrey and eye masks? I'm loving her Nicole Bonnet "in disguise" look here, as she discussed their successful museum heist at the Ritz:

I think she is the only person ever who can get away with that sort of look without looking absurd!

Now this look is just so chic and timeless, I love how she wears her scarf two ways:

My Fair Lady

I've seen this so many times, but I just love watching this over and over! I especially love her gown here. I actually toyed with the idea of having my wedding gown patterned after her gown here, but I don't think I can get away with all that sparkly bits without looking like a tacky Reyna Elena wannabe heehee:

i also love audrey hepburn films! she is just naturally chic and funny! rockwell showed her films a couple of months ago but i wasnt able to go see any. i think an audrey hepburn movie marathon is a great way to spend your days at home! (but im not at all surprised that your dear hubby doesnt share your sentiment, neither does mine! hehehe!)

You have to watch these Nikki! So much fun! There are actually more Audrey movies I have yet to see in my movie queue like Two for the Road where I hear the fashion is fantastic! =)

Oh yes, I read about that Mrs. Lavendula! And yes, it is a great way to spend alone time, heehee! Guys will never understand the allure of an Audrey Hepburn movie!

don't forget the audrey movie "Sabrina" -- it launched the famous collar =)

Audrey would be a nice name for Berry, too.
