Pretty or Ugly?: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Mary Green Tiffany Sleep Mask

audrey-hepburn-breakfast-at-tiffanys-sleep-mask

The other day I mentioned that I love Mary Green’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s sleep mask, but said that it might be a little flashy for some.  Well, here it is.  What do you think?  Pretty or Ugly?  Audrey Hepburn wore a similar mask in Breakfast at Tiffany’s when Holly Golightly was awakened by Fred (a.k.a Paul, played by George Peppard) in one of the opening scenes.  I admit, it’s a bit much  . . . but that’s what makes it fun too!  Please weigh in and tell me what you think – Pretty or Pretty Ugly?  . . .

  • Mmmm – I think my husband would laugh at me if I wore this to bed. Its a bit too over the top for me

    • You bring up a good point Ghislaine . . . Holly G was flying solo that morning, otherwise she too may have reconsidered the sleep mask. Thanks for your comment!

      [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ’0 which is not a hashcash value.

  • It is a little too gaudy for my taste. I also think the eyelids and eyebrows look strange. I prefer something a little more conservative like black satin with crystals.

  • My barbie from 1972 had a little sleep mask, and this ones seems a little barbie-esque. It’s not something I would wear to bed if there was someone lying next to me….Basically, if you aren’t Audrey Hepburn, don’t expect to pull it off.

    • Randi -

      You’re probably right . . . Aside from Audrey Hepburn, I know very few people who could actually pull this one off, and she herself was flying solo when she had it on. But, I gotta tell you that the gaudiness of the mask makes me smile nonetheless! Thanks for your comment. Keep ‘em coming.

  • Peekaboo–I SEE YOU!…if a burglar comes in, I might be saved. He’ll think I’m awake and go running out the door, so I guess I would wear it if I was home alone to feel safe. After giving it a second look, I just may wear it after a day at the spa and some pampering to show my relaxed state with those heavy lids. The hubby thinks it looks retarded.

    • Michele –

      This made me LOL! Ok, so the “nays” have it. The Breakfast at Tiffany’s sleep mask has been voted Pretty Ugly. Thanks for your comment Michele. Keep ‘em coming.

  • Well, it seems as if the general consensus is “Pretty Ugly” … Thanks for all of your comments! Keep ‘em coming.

  • I love it. I myself would wear it as well. I think it’s mad genius.
