The Best Buy Guide For Breakfast At Tiffany’s Fans

I’m sure I’m not the only replikater who was inspired by Kate’s fashion choices last week to spend a bit of my weekend indulging in my love for Audrey Hepburn by spending Sunday morning enjoying coffee, croissants and of course watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I also spent a large portion of the weekend searching online for the perfect navy hat replikate for Kate’s beautiful Lock and co Tiffany hat, whilst not having much success I did come across many wonderful Breakfast at Tiffany’s products which I’m sharing the best of below. So go on and indulge your inner Holly Golightly!


The Hat

I can’t think of a more iconic fashion moment on film then the fabulous wide black drop brim hat with white silk scarf that Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Dramatic, memorable and ever so stylish, it perfectly contrasted with her delicate facial features to create a timeless look.

There were many replicas of this hat on sites such as etsy and eBay and lots that came in packs of Holly Golightly costumes, but if your actually wanting one to wear as a regular part of your wardrobe and not just as  a one-off to a dress up party, I think this one from Amazon is the best. Sold by Utopiat, it is described by them as ‘a true labour of love and has taken 2 years to finally perfect to become what we believe to be the most accurate and beautiful rendition of this gorgeous hat’. See the link below;

The Sleep Mask

Remember the scene where Holly first meets Paul. When she answers her door dressed in a white tuxedo shirt,  purple tassel ear plugs and the most darling blue sleep mask with gold braid trim, rhinestones and eyelash fringe. Now you can own your own fabulous copy.

Again, I found many copies of the mask but the one that seems to made out of the best quality materials and bears the best resemblancece to the original is this one from sleepy cottage and it’s below $30. check it out here;

Not satisfied with just the mask and after the whole set? Not problem! Buy the whole set here, the only difference is this comes with purple tasselled earrings instead of ear plugs.


The Best Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For The British At Heart & Duchesses In Training

So ladies, this is one post to hand over to your husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends or yourself if you plan to buy a little Valentine’s day treat for yourself  (don’t worry, I plan to as well, go on, we deserve it!). Today I will be looking at the best Valentines day presents available for those who are British at heart or Duchess’s in training.

Jo Malone

Jo Malone is my go to favorite British company to buy perfumes, scented bath products and housewares such as candles. For Duchesses in training you can’t go past the orange blossom candle which Kate used inside Westminster Abbey during the Royal wedding to give the church a lovely English summer garden smell. You could also go the traditional route and give red roses, albeit in the form of a Jo Malone cologne. If you are buying for someone who is more of a peony lover like me there is also a wonderful range of products in the peony and blush suede scent.

Emma Bridgewater

Emma Bridgewater is a wonderful British company that make earthenware products at their factory in Stoke on Trent. The best products they sell for Valentines day are their range of Mr and Mrs products, pink hearts or for something really special, they have a selection of tea pots, mugs, plates and bowls that you can have personalized with your own romantic message.

Replikateit Fashion Prints

If you have not yet come across Brittany’s wonderful range of fashion illustration prints on etsy, get ready to discover a whole new way to indulge your Kate fashion obsession! I have several of her wonderful single fashion prints hanging in my bedroom and you are still able to purchase her poster prints through her etsy shop

Quaintly & co British Lifestyle Subscription Boxes

My top pick for an ultra romantic Valentines day gift for the British at heart is a subscription to a British lifestyle box from Quaintly and co. What the lucky recipient will get is a monthly delivery filled with all British soured artisan products with each box curated around a theme. Past themes have included tea time, British baking and Sherlock homes. They have a range of plans in place from single box buys to ongoing subscriptions.
