Audrey Horne is one of my all time style icons. I don’t think there was a moment when Sherilyn Fenn was on screen where I wasn’t utterly captivated. Every outfit was pretty much flawless. She’d have this amazing 50’s inspired school girl look – with long plaid skirts, knits and the most flawless eyebrows in the world and then next thing she would transform in to a vintage sex kitten – all lashings of lipstick, beauty marks and black silk dresses. Girl knew how to work an outfit.  From the high school toilets to One Eyed Jack’s Audrey always looked stellar and her style still holds up today.  I’d noticed a few cute knits kicking about recently and it reminded me of Audrey and how effortless she looked. I went for a muted palette with some dark red, I’m not going for a carbon copy but wanted to evoke the feel of her look more than anything else. While I may not be dropping £195 on a checked skirt any time soon I am HEAVY in love with navy t-bar shoes and the cashmere checked jumper, total staples. I think any of these pieces topped off with loads of eyeliner (ELF provide a great dupe AND an animal (and purse) friendly alternative to MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack) a good arched brow and hunners of attitude and you’ll pretty much have Miss Horne down to a tee.

I fear this revisit to Audrey Horne is going to have me spending my evening on youtube trying to find tutorials to recreate her eyebrows. That is pretty much what is going to happen.
