Fashion inspiration from the movie Chocolat!

Chocolat is one of my favorite movies plus it takes place at Easter time. I am sure you have all seen it and know the plot: A young mother (Vianne) and her six year old daughter (Anouk) arrive at the small fictional, repressed village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes in the winter of 1959. Vianne opens up a small chacolaterie right at Lent much to the chagrin of the town mayor. In the beginning she does not fit in with the towns people but yet she is optimistic about her new shop. However almost magically her chocolates begin to change the lives of the people in the small quiet town of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes.

This blog post is to highlight the fashion of Vianne, I love the costumes they had her wear for this movie. They are colorful, beautiful, and timeless.

How about a beautiful red wool hooded cape.

The red and robins egg blue color combo is the bees knees!

Details such as a colorful head scarf.

Love the shawl.
  These last three were actual costumes that Vianne wore in the movie.
Beautiful maroon dress with dark red suede pumps.

This is a bright and bold combination, I love it!

Here is a sweet combination for a warm spring day.
