I was in the mood for an artsy movie this week and remembered that we had never seen "Penelope" with Christina Ricci. If you recall, her character is born with a pig nose and ears to a rich couple. Penelope's mother is convinced that the pig curse will break if she were to marry into another well to do family but alas all the rich boys run away screaming when they see her. All but one, our hero who falls in love with Penelope's personality before he actually sees her face.
Frankly I appreciated Penelope's wardrobe more than the story line. She wore lots of colorful thin sweaters, skirts with colored tights, and lovely Mary-Jane's. I was inspired! If a girl with a pig nose can pull it off, surely I can too!
