I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time this past weekend – I know, I know, it's a classic; it's inexcusable that I haven't seen it before; etc. etc. Movie buff is not my strong suit.
Anyway, it exceeded my expectations! I just loved it. I think Audrey Hepburn is captivating and there are so many quirky, cheeky tidbits that are made even more so by the fact that the film was made in 1961. But, you likely already have your sentiments on Holly Golightly, so that is not what I'm here to discuss.
What I'm here to discuss is Holly's fabulous sleep getup. I am all about the sleep mask, y'all. Have been since college. And I've actually come around to earplugs recently, too - it's weirdly soothing to hear nothing but your own breath if you're having trouble decompressing or falling asleep or whatever. Tasseled earplugs?! Fun to the max.
I'll admit, her sparkly sleep mask is great in context but something like this is more my style. I'm actually in the market for a new mask, myself (I tried to compromise and get a cheapo airplane-style flimsy thing on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond and ... it was a bad decision), so now I'm scouring the web for one. Any good ideas? I like 'em to be pillowy and weighty enough that I feel the compression. Also, it's all about one thick head band - those double thin elastics are no good. So far etsy has been my best bet, but I would love your suggestions. This is a weirdly difficult task, I say!
