Amélie


Yay! An outfit post! This one almost never happened: it was pouring outside, but I went out anyway and it stopped raining. Looks like Mother Nature missed my blog and approved the idea of me doing an outfit post. Ha!

The dress and shoes are both new. My friend's workplace is located close to Urban Outfitters, so I wandered into the store a few times in the past two weeks. I kept seeing the shoes and the dress and liking them a lot, but I just kept calm and carried on... until they announced an extra -30% on sales items, so I finally cheated on my shopping ban and bought both. I'd been on this shopping ban for quite a long time and the last piece I remember buying (before this week) was this peplum top. Zero guilt hehe



Look, tiny squirrels all over the place! They're adorable...



Dress: Coincidence & Chance / Tights: Simons / Shoes: Cooperative / Headpiece: DIY

I titled this post "Amélie" because the colours of my outfit remind me of the movie, which is one of my all-time favourites. The music, the story, the unique characters, the pretty tones of the picture... Every time I feel down, I just sit down, watch Amélie and start feeling better. Perhaps it's because I'm a bit of an Amélie myself. What is your favourite feel-good movie?

  1. Amélie is also one of my favourites! She is so one-of-a-kind and a wondrous child. I do kind of wish she gets to see her father again one day. Aside from that, I also love Big Fish and you should totally watch it, because...YOU'LL LOVE IT! So artistic and colourful ;)

  3. Amelie is my favorite movie of all time. Favorite.
    If you haven't already, try to see if you can find the tv show Pushing Daisies. The creator of the show as inspired by Amelie. So, you might enjoy it :)

    Love the colors in your outfit. I can't quite tell, but if I'm right in that the tights are a pretty, chartreusey color...then I love it!
