A happy bloggy birthday!

Today is the 1st anniversary of Ip & Audrey. I can't believe it's already been a year since I started this blog! Ip & Aud began as a fashion class assignment. I wasn't sure where it was going and began by writing fashion essays, a few book and runway reviews, and finally started "style blogging" in the winter.

As many of you know, the title of my blog is a reference to Audrey Hepburn and her pet deer, Pippin ("Ip" for short). I have many style icons, from Birkin to Bardot to even Bilson, but Audrey will always be my favorite. I know many of you feel the same-- there's just something about her timeless elegance that could never be surpassed. When it came time to think up a blog title, there was simply no better inspiration.

I'm happy to join the ever-growing network of fashion and style blogs. A few months ago I received this sweet award from Emily that fits Ip & Audrey perfectly:

I'd like to pass it along to Sarah, Jessica, Sophie & Raquel. You're all wonderful and lovely!

Thanks to everyone who keeps stopping by. More fun, summery posts coming soon!
