"I Like to Keep My Hand In"




I found this zebra mask at Richards Variety Store (right by the Midtown Trader Joe's). Cheapie animal masks always remind me of that scene in Breakfast at Tiffany's where Holly and Paul/Fred steal masks from the Five and Dime. Mine cost me $1.25, but it is totally worth the inflation price. Also, these masks work well if your make-up has slid off your face by the end of day and you are sporting a glistening sheen. Holly never seemed to have that problem.

Jacket, shirt and shorts are H&M, shoes are Nine West

These shots are amazing. I love the theme, the outfit, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and well, Richard's Variety Store.

*sigh* That's my favourite scene in the movie, the part where they spend the day doing things they've never done before.

Great mask, and I love the shoes!

I love masks, they create a certain serenity and surrealism in photos.

Your legs look amazing and i love that your gladiators are beige, yum.

Love that shot with the mask! And it matches the outfit perfectly. Maybe I should give it a try - I occasionally get that sheen around the afternoon sometimes...

missKaren said...

Oh my, how beautiful you look! Reminiscent of artist Sam Flores too. Am having sudden realization that a heavy shoe is easily lightened when nude. *DING* Now I don't have to fear looking stumpy.

So cool. How come when I wear an animal mask it doesn't quite come out like this?

ps. I don't think Ms. Golightly ever lived in Atlanta.

The pictures are amazing. You look so elegant and classic. By the way, the zebra mask never looked that good. LOL
