Remember how glam Audrey Hepburn looked snacking on pastry and sipping coffee as she gazed longingly into the window at Tiffany & Co. in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s? If so, you can imagine my excitement when I received an invitation to actually have breakfast INSIDE Tiffany to celebrate the new store opening at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
Members of the media were invited to peruse case after case of the luxury jeweler’s silver, gold and gem stone accessories while enjoying mimosas and little chocolates shaped like the iconic blue Tiffany box. Holly Golightly, eat your heart out.
I tried my best to channel my inner Hepburn as I wolfed down several dainty fried quail egg breakfast sandwiches. Note to self: Must work harder at becoming a classy lady.
Anyways, my favourite new Tiffany offering is the adorable Tiffany Key necklace. Starting at CDN$130, these are totally affordable. Note to family: My birthday is coming up.
