"Did I tell you how divinely and utterly happy I am?" - Holly
"You could always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you. I must say, the mind reels." - Holly
"Holly, you're drunk." - Paul "True." - Holly
"I'll never let ANYBODY put me in a cage." - Holly "I don't want to put you in a cage, I want to love you!" - Paul
"But just look at the goodies she brought with her." - Holly "He's all right, I suppose, if you like dark, handsome, rich-looking men with passionate natures and too many teeth." - Paul
"It's useful being top banana in the shock department." - Holly
I think I first fell in love with Breakfast at Tiffany's long before I even saw the movie. I was an avid Gossip Girl reader since the very beginning, and since Blair's hero was Holly, I figured that she must be a truly fabulous gal to look up to.
I've since seen the movie many, many times, and with each viewing I fall more in love with the mysterious, fun-loving, and glamorous Holly. With a secret past and an endless supply of fabulous little black dresses and foreign suitors, Holly is the type of classy that I long to be. While she has her issues, she is a girl who knows style, charisma, and how to weasel a $50 bill out of yet another "rat".
It is for these very reasons that when I was debating what my Halloween costume should be that Holly and her jewelry obsession popped into my head. I've had a bad year due to my last Halloween adventure (ambulance ride, brain and ear drum damage, depression, a forced semester away from school...) but now I'm ready to turn it all around and start this holiday off the right way. It'll be a form-fitting black dress, chic ballet flats, and big sunglasses for this girl, with no unplanned visits to the hospital or police station.
What are your plans for Halloween?
