Ext. In Front of Closed Jewelers - Day
Sounds of wind and distant traffic fill the air. Walking through the abandoned street she glances at her reflection in empty windows almost as if making sure she was still there. Everything else here had died, she didn't want to be next. Hearing the sound of footsteps click against the sidewalk she turns to see a figure round the corner of the building. She stares at the shadow for a moment contemplating whether to call out or let it pass.
You know that iconic scene in Breakfast at Tiffany's where Audrey Hepburn is in her now famous black dress, pearls, and tiara, staring into the window front showing her reflection and all of New York City behind her? To me, it's one of the prettiest scenes in film, so while walking down this street on my way to work one morning I thought how it could be interesting to create an "abandoned Audrey Hepburn" scenario here with these once popular jewelry stores and an outfit to match. Except, pink. And leopard. If you look far enough into one of these windows you'll catch a glimpse of these pretty gold elevators which I really want to take a picture of, but have yet to find a way in. Chains everywhere, man.
Just 3 more days until I'm on a plane and heading to LA! So stoked (practicing up on my Cali language) to finally get to see the west coast after having dreamt about it for so long. One event that I won't get to make, but wish that I were, is the Wine and Dine event at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose. The pictures of the hotel itself looks regal enough for a movie set it. I've made a promise in my heart that I'll make it out there one day for a couple of sleeps and photo shoots, because I'm sure it would be the best time. If I were able to go though, I would probably show up in an outfit a lot like this one, but with a little more bling. Maybe some diamonds in my ears and a big rock on one of my fingers for good measure. Go big or big home. Now, just as Fairmont Hotel asked me, I'm gonna ask you, if you were...or if you are...attending their Wine and Dine event what would you wear? You know how to reach me.
