“What I’ve found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany’s. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there, not with those kind men in their nice suits, and that lovely smell of silver and alligator wallets. If I could find a real-life place that made me feel like Tiffany’s, then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name.”
Tiffany & Co. was founded on this day in 1837. More than a century later it became a safe haven for Truman Capote‘s iconic Holly Golightly in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S.
