Sunday Supplements: BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S EDITION

Sunday Supplement's Breakfast at Tiffany's Edition / The Sugar Hit

 

Happy Sunday, my darling, how are you?

 

I hope your week went well, and that you’ve had a lovely weekend. Earlier this week I started re-reading Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Truman Capote’s novella. I don’t know what the problem was when I read it the first time, but I remember feeling distinctly nonplussed. This time I am absolutely loving it. Can you believe up until a few days ago I had never seen the movie? Have you seen it? It’s a beauty. The styling is gorgeous, and the story is a fantastic one.

 

Sunday Supplement's Breakfast at Tiffany's Edition / The Sugar Hit

 

I love these penguin editions. This is one of those rare occasions where the book and the movie are both equally enchanting. Holly Golightly, although she is vaguely a call-girl, is a fantastic character, without whom the likes of Cher Horowitz and Carrie Bradshaw may not have existed. Truman Capote described her in an interview with Playboy (back when playboy had journalism in it) as an “American Geisha”.

 

There is something about my generation – is it self-centered-ness, or just relentless optimism – that makes this carefree, modern-day gypsy lifestyle uniquely and intensely appealing. It just seems so romantic.

 

 

 

I mean, get a load of this trailer! The voice over? The couch made out of half a bathtub? The mispronunciation of ‘Capote’? Everything about this trailer totally engrosses me. And breakfast also happens to be my favourite meal of the day. I can’t think of anything nicer than waking up on a crisp New York morning, picking up a danish (that’s what it was; a danish) and a coffee and chowing down while window-shopping at Tiffany’s. This Holly Golightly – I very much like her style. Fun fact: guess who did not like Danishes?

So yeah, whilst whistfully watching Audrey Hepburn’s style and grace, I also felt a desperate need to stuff a danish into my face throughout this entire film. Needless to say, I shall certainly be baking a batch of danishes in the near future. If this strawberry danish tart was anything to go by, it will certainly be worth my while.

 

Let me give you a little more inspiration for wonderful breakfast treats, perfect for strolling the big apple (or your city centre)  with your shades on in the morning light.

 

 

Ok, I guess I’ll see you all outside your local Tiffany’s at around 6am tomorrow? I apologise in advance for not being a morning person.

 

xx Sarah.

  1. I absolutely LOVE your graphics/logo! Thanks for including me on your list!

    • My pleasure – thanks Ashley!

  2. I just ate dinner but I am still coveting everything on that list! Thanks for including me. We made Adrianna’s almond dutch baby this week – it was delicious.

    • My pleasure! Love your work.

  3. I’ve never seen the movie or read the book but I am SO glad you mentioned it! My fall reading list has been lacking lately and I am now pushing this one to the top of the list!

    • You’ll love it!

  4. Thanks ladyfriend! Love your Sunday supplements. I’ve never seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and to be honest, I think I had the wrong idea about it–had no idea she was a party girl! (Mostly I knew it had a horribly offensive Asian stereotype for a neighbor.) That trailer was comedy gold and I kind of wish the whole movie was narrated like that–I would be so into that.

    • I know – so hideously awful. But do see it. What’s not incredibly offensive is very endearing.

  5. What a lovely post :-) love the photos & the movie trailer.. haven´t seen the movie yet but would love to!!

    have a great week!

  6. Breakfast at tiffany’s is one of few actual movies I own! It’s a fave of mine for lazy or sick wintertime days…and I inevitably sing “Moon River” all day errydat for approximately 1 week after.

    Thanks for the love, girl!
