Where the Hepburns meet

Audrey and Katharine. The Hepburns. Silver screen images of elegance so innately different from one another but forever connected by seven defining letters. I strive to be the kind of woman who's an amalgam of these two gorgeous icons.
Katharine: The personification of the strong, smart, fiesty yet uniquely tender woman. It makes me think of that line from "While You Were Sleeping" where Bill Pullman describes Sandra Bullocks character by saying, "you don't know whether to hug her or just really arm wrestle her." That's how I see Katherine. She can match you at a game of wits like a lioness, while loving with a deep vulnerability that's truly a sight to behold.
Audrey: The personification of the gentle, graceful, kind hearted woman who has layers that go deeper than you can possibly fathom. Her gentile nature can be playful like a sprite while never abandoning her innate poise and graceful demeanor. She has eyes that express novels in her own secret language. Her elegance catches your notice, but it's HER that you want to get know. She's lived a life, you can tell, but you need to get close enough for her to begin to tell you.
There is a wholeness in the place where the Hepburns meet. Each so beautiful on their own, but combined...there's a whole other level of magic.
