it's the 10th anniversary of one of my all time favorite movies, Amelie, the delightful french movie about a lovely girl who ananomously orchestrates situations in the lives of those around her, but is too timid to take control of her own life and go after the mans she loves.
if you've never seen it, here's a trailer...
it's just wonderful. i would have Loved to have styled this movie, not only because the director is one of my all time favorites and the story is fantastic, but because of the beautiful unity in this film. the script is authentic, the visuals are beautiful, the acting divine, and it all fits together in a magical package that will actually transport you to another place and give you a heartfelt experience- just as film, and art in general, are meant to do.
it has an amazing soundtrack by Yann Tiersen. here's the main theme, Comptine D' un Autre Ete.
this is my Amelie inspired outfit. while the colors in the film are mostly reds, greens, and golds which are antiqued, i longed for a pop of color, hence the purple tights. the movie takes place in Paris, which is known for being windy and often cool, so i opted for a long, orange coat in the still a little chilly spring. actually, our weather has been nuts! fluctuating all over the place.
these little black oxfords have a slight heel and are very comfy for walking- Paris is a pedestrian city. and though oxfords originated in Scotland, the European touch is perfect for Paris.
and the coat has little waist pockets!
i chose this little anatomical heart pin because of the moment in the film where Amelie's heart is shown beating. i love that image, and have always loved this little pin.
