holly golightly would not chase harry winston.

"It’s a good thing that [Holly Golightly] vanishes at the end of the story like a puff of smoke. I’d hate to imagine her, today, tottering towards Manolo Blahnik."

-Cathy Horyn, in her blog on "Breakfast at Tiffany's" vs. today's plethora of chick-lit.

How true. The "Lipstick Jungle"s and "Chasing Harry Winston"s never seem to stop, but all they can do is name drop - and really, haven't we heard it all before? Holly Golightly's charm was in her indifference; she was inherently chic (and yes, i realize I'm talking about a fictional character here), and I don't think Mr. Capote once mentioned that she was wearing a Prada dress or the new Louboutins. I've read "Breakfast at Tiffany's" about three or four thousand times, and I think I might read it again tonight.

Here, read this too. And then go read "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
