Wonderful Wednesday: Minty Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Every girl since 1961 has dreamed of having breakfast at Tiffany’s.

When the effortlessly graceful Audrey Hepburn swans into the glaring daylight of 5th Avenue in all her morning after the after-party glory, you’re instantly transfixed. By the time she’s taken her first bite of croissant and sip of corner store coffee, you’ve already seen the glimmering jewels behind the glass. The elegant curve of fire forged diamonds.

And suddenly, Holly Golightly’s┬ácontemplative, longing look becomes your own as you realize, it has you. The love affair has begun.

There is simply no turning back from Tiffany’s.

But alas, with this realization comes a harsh truth. Most of us will always be like Miss Holly Golightly. On the outside looking in. Standing in glamorous reflections and pretending with our morning pastries.

But you don’t have to pretend anymore. Not today. Because today I’m going to show you how to spend a little and look like it’s a whole lot more.

It’s Wonderful Wednesday.

If you’ve never received a package from Tiffany & Co., either by your own purchase or through the magnificent good of a gift, you are missing something in your life.

Sounds silly doesn’t? Sounds like a piggish, capitalist, consumer lust, materialistic and all other kinds of “listic” thing to say, I know. But you’re only thinking that because it’s never happened to you.

You’ve never felt the heft of the minty, sweet blue bag and its crisp, white string. Never reached in, cupping your hands around the box inside like it was a new born kitten. Never removed the top and seen the careful placement of tissue paper and smelled the heady aroma inside. The silken pouch. The simple lettering.

Buying something from Tiffany’s is not just another purchase. It’s an EXPERIENCE. An American institution.

And most importantly, it’s not as expensive as you think it is. Here’s a short list of great things from Tiffany’s and a bit of Forever 21 thrown in the mix.

    This is my favorite Wonderful Wednesday post so far! I have received 3 Tiffany gifts, and the surprise and giddy-ness of opening the box is ridiculous and amazing. I love the enamel ring!
