My Audrey Gap Pants

I have been doing a little closet cleaning and have come across two pairs of black pants that I can never seem to part with.  It dawned on me the other day that I really just don't want to part with the Gap/Audrey Hepburn ad campaign of 2006.  If you have never seen it, Google, Gap Audrey Hepburn commercial and you will see a very cool ad for the Gap Skinny black pants.  They pair her Funny Face Beatnik dance with the AC/DC's, "Back in Black," song.  These pants seem too baggy on me but in the pictures my daughter took of me, they don't look too bad.  Maybe I need to add a little Anthropologie to them!       




This Audrey Hepburn children's book has been available at Anthropologie for awhile now and the illustrations are simply stunning. Not only does my daughter have one, but I have been buying them for her best friend's birthdays. Even if you don't have kids, I highly recommend this book for Audrey fans and collectors.



Pants: Gap skinny from 2006.  I want to check these out....Gap Ultra Skinny Pants.
Top: Old, old Hillard and Hanson from the now long gone Mervyns department store!
Shoes: Kenneth Cole Luka leather Ballet flats from Costco.  Fall 2013, they may still have them.

  1. Those pants look really good on you. I would never know they are too baggy. And I LOVE that you get the book for your daughter's friends. What a splendid idea. It is neat, because they probably don't have it and it is such a different gift than the regular old presents. Very cool!

    1. Thank you Jenni,

      I think I am going to hang on to these pants and try different tops with them. I put them in the dryer which helped a bit.
      The Audrey book is darling for children and adults. You should take a look the next time you go to Anthropologie or in a pinch, check out Amazon.
      Thanks,

  2. Very Audrey Hepburn! She's such a classic style icon. I know it's said so often that it's become cliche, but it's true. I feel like black ankle pants and ballet flats will forever be chic because of her. I admired her so much when I was in high school. I watched her old movies and would go thrifting to find pieces to emulate her style. Your look here is so classic and polished and is definitely a nod to Audrey's fashion sense. Tie a printed scarf around your neck or the handle of your purse, and you'd look perfectly Parisian!

    1. Thank you! I have been a big fan since high school too. It's funny because my daughter told me to pull out a scarf and pose with it in my hand, before she took my picture. I was going to do that, but then decided to tie it in my ponytail instead. It's hard to see the black scarf.
      "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "Funny Face" are two of my favorite movies and just recently I was able to see Breakfast at our local movie theater. It was a great experience!
      Thanks for stopping by,

    1. I will keep the pants and thank you! It's amazing how outfits look in pictures versus the mirror. Sometimes things may look good in the mirror but in the photo it is a disappointment and vice versa. These pants looked dorky in the mirror and in the picture looked fine.
      Have a great evening,
