If you peruse my Pinterest boards, it wouldn’t take long to see that I have a love for all things mid-century.  Audrey Hepburn is a large part of that. She had tremendous style.  She had powerful grace.  She had a kind and joyful heart.  Her vulnerability made her strong.  Her compassion was her best feature.  Simply put, she is one of my heroes.

If you like her for her little black dresses and pixie haircut, take a few minutes and read up about the woman behind the icon.  Learn about her WWII hardships or her work with the resistance movement and how her wartime experiences led to her amazing lifelong affiliation with UNICEF.

But in the meantime, take a look at this super cool graphic offered to me through the generosity of outletshoppers.com.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

Happy birthday, Audrey.  You were a true gem.
