The style, the beauty, the look. Truman Capote’s novel Breakfast at Tiffany’s, made into a Hollywood motion picture in 1961 and featuring the dazzling Holly Golightly, has become as iconic as it is classic.
The natural choice to play the fabulous Golightly was Audrey Hepburn, with her delicate features and undeniably chic style, she played the part to perfection. Her role in the movie became her image overnight and when people think of her now, i dare say they see her in that little black dress, pearls and big black sunglasses. To this day no self respecting girl can say they don’t either adore this film or rank Golightly as one of their top style icons.

Kitsch is an art that is considered an inferior, tasteless copy of an extant style of art or a worthless imitation of art of recognized value. But so what? Many people adore kitsch, like myself. I have even started my own collection. Going to op shops and finding kitschy little animal figurines for a dollar. What could be more rewarding?
Instead of taking photos of my own collection, I have decided to feature what other people on Etsy are selling in the world of kitsch.
my favorite kitsch items are animals so I just had to include this gorgeous little pink elephant from littlevintageviolet
This is too cute. A vintage soup mug from HeyYoYo
This little bear from amye123 is very similar to the animals i collect.
A poodle in a slipper, what could be better? From TheLovelys
I love this! From eclecticamiami
