Audrey Hepburn, film still from War & Peace. Found on eBay.
Positive words from the elegant lady herself. eBay has a few things to keep Audrey Hepburn’s spirit in your home at all times. Check it out.
A style icon even when fishing something out of the oven, Audrey Hepburn remains one of our most eminent darlings — especially in this image that was brought from its black-and-white origins to be reimagined in color. If you’re an Audrey-phile like us, you’ll enjoy the heaps of original photographs of her currently available for purchase on eBay — in color and black and white, of course. Click here to see.

"We’re after the same rainbows end, waiting round the bend, my Huckleberry friend, Moonriver and me".
If you missed this epic piece of film history, watch it here thanks to YouTube (best invention known to man). If you prefer to sing a lonesome tune on your fire escape, pick up a baby guitar here on eBay.

Happy Birthday, Audrey!
The Inside Source would like take a moment of silence to honor Audrey Hepburn. Last week, May 4th, was her birthday. Born in 1929, we lost the screen legend in 1993 but her spirit lives with us forever… as well as with every curious and lost city girl channeling Holly Golightly (the original Carrie Bradshaw).

Florals are Back
We noticed a plethora of floral prints on the runways this past New York Fashion Week. The editors at Elle.com did a proper round-up of all the collections to keep on your radar this fall season. Here’s the floral report.

Get Your Beauty Rest
Why do people cover their eyes at night? Because sleeping masks are one of the best tools possible to get that necessary shut eye. It’s proven that when your brain senses pure darkness, it causes the production of melatonin (the chemical of sleep) to ooze into the brain and launch you into a sleepy state of bliss. Now insert fashion into the mix. If you can believe it, the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Eye Mask replica is available for only 2 more days on eBay for $27.62. A diverse range of eye masks are available year round on eBay starting at $1. A themed mask with a sense of humor (seen above) is an adorable gift for any fashionable insomniac this Holiday season. Earplugs not included.

Vespa: It was Good Enough for Audrey Hepburn & Gregory Peck
By Jenny Bahn
Public transportation: New York City’s beauty…and its burden. When you’ve got a jam-packed itinerary of things to do between 11th Avenue and the Williamsburg Bridge, sometimes the subways just don’t cut it. For those of us in compact cities, a Vespa is a dream come true. Not as aggressive as a motorcycle, nor as cumbersome as a car, a Vespa is the perfect accessory. I spotted a few Vespa finds with bids starting at $700.
Funny Face is Restored
To all the Fashionistas who have never seen Funny Face, now is the chance to take advantage on the big screen. For a short time, New York’s Film Forum will be presenting the new DCP restoration of the classic film — bringing back the eye-popping Technicolor to it’s original vision. The film runs only from June 29 to July 5th.
For the newbies, the plot is just as relevant as it was in 1957. The story revolves around Quality Magazine (based on Vogue) and it’s Editor (based on Diana Vreeland) hunting for a new trend. Fred Astaire who plays a top photographer (based on Richard Avedon) thinks the bookshop clerk in the West Village (Audrey Hepburn) is just the right face for the part. Did we mention Audrey rocks a serious scarlet Givenchy dress in this flick?
