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!


  1. I love Christina Ricci!! love her in the ice storm!

    Would also LOVE your support on the ELLE DECOR window I did for the Big Window Challenge this year with Apartment Therapy. Check it out at http://www.bigwindowchallenge com. As we all know, AT doesn’t make it easy, but you can vote TWICE a day, once online and the other by texting “1” to 89800.

    Your support means the world to me!!


  2. We just saw this movie last night and liked it a lot... thought the acting was wonderful and the whimsy feel of the movie was a lot of fun.
    And yes... LOVE her clothes! (by the way, this is signed in under Weston, but I'm sure you can tell by this post that it's Melissa)
