Inspired By: Amelie

Amelie is a whimsical French film about an imaginative and introverted young woman named Amelie, who is a waitress at Café des 2 Moulins (French for "Two Windmills") in the Montmartre area of Paris (it's a real cafe by the way). After discovering a box hidden forty years ago with childhood memorabilia inside and bringing it back to it's owner, Amelie decides to devote her life to bringing happiness to those around her. 

I love this film! If you haven't seen it, you have to right now. It's so cute and quirky and every time I watch it puts a smile on my face. 

Inspired By: Amelie

Amelie (Audrey Tautou) is an eccentric waitress, who likes to let her imagination run wild and who gave up on romance after a few disappointing relationships. One day while making the people around her happy, Amelie notices Nino and realizes that he's just as quirky as she is. To dress like Amelie, wear a red dress with bicycles on it, spoon and fork earrings (since she likes cracking the top of creme brulee), red lip gloss, and nude flats. Or instead put on a polka dot top, mint cardigan, yellow jeans, nude wedges, and a tea cup ring. 

Inspired By: Nino (Amelie)
Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz) is a quirky young man who likes collecting the discarded passport photographs of strangers left around and underneath photo booths. He keeps all the pictures he finds in a large photo album, but accidentally drops it in the street one day. Amelie picks it up, discovers his name, and sees all the pictures. Dress like Nino by wearing a brown jacket, orange sheer blouse, distressed jeans, and orange sneakers, or by wearing a polka dot top, brown jeans, and bright cut-out flats. And don't forget your photo album!

The Masked Woman
Inspired By: The Masked Woman (Amelie)
After looking through Nino's photo album, Amelie decides to return it to him, but plays a little game of cat and mouse with him first. She takes mysterious, masked pictures of herself, tears it apart, and leaves it under a photo booth for Nino to find. This little journey brings them closer together. If you want to be a woman of mystery, then try all black -- hat, dress, boots, and long, gold necklace. Or go with a black peter pan collar shirt, jeans, booties, beret, and gold LOVE ring. 

The Traveling Gnome
Inspired By: The Traveling Gnome (Amelie)
After Amelie's mother's death, her father lives an increasingly lonely and isolated life tending to his garden. Amelie wants her father to follow his dream of traveling the world, so she steals the gnome he keeps in the garden and gives it to a flight attendant friend, who takes pictures of the gnome in front of famous landmarks. If you're going on an adventure yourself, then wear a green jacket, green short-sleeve sweater, pale pink jeans, orange beanie, and Converse. Or go for an emerald green shirt, jean shorts, polka dot headband, and sandals.
Have you seen Amelie?
If you have, don't you just love it?

  11. Amelie was one of the many reasons I fell in love with Paris and, more specifically, with Montmartre. The style was just as much a part of the movie as the story, and all of the outfits you`ve put together really capture that essence of whimsy. Not surprisingly, I want to wear everything in The Masked Woman look, but it was the Travelling Gnome look that made me smile the most :)

    1. I actually had you in mind when I started this post! I was like, Cee is in Montmartre right now! lol
