I saw this picture of George Peppard and Audrey Hepburn online the other day in a scene from Breakfast at Tiffany's (a truly sucky film, and anyone who has read Truman Capote's bittersweet little novella with undoubtedly agree with me) and I couldn't help but notice Audrey's oversized sunglasses, her streaky hair and her stylishly bumped up hair. Not to mention her basic black, although I'm not sure if you're allowed to smoke in bars in New York City anymore, you poor dears. Anyway, Breakfast at Tiffany's came out in 1961 (which was way before I was born), so here we are almost fifty years later sporting the exact same look. Kind of like that old French adage, "the more things change, the more they stay the same," only with more actual français.

And here I was looking at "retro" dresses and sweaters on Maybe I'm more fashion forward than I thought. :)
