"Well, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Yes, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Well, you must tell me, baby
How your head feels under somethin’ like that
Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat" -Bob Dylan

If you haven't seen this movie it's worth running out in your Wellies for. Perfect for a day like today: the only thing more luscious than the tragedy of her love affair are the colors in her wardrobe (and the backdrops, which are played beautifully off each other).
This color palette is so 1964: bubble gum pink, canary yellow, sky blue, pumpkin orange, and that olive that was found in every kitchen, even on appliances.
It reminded me of the dresses I arranged on display to mark the coming of Spring and cheer us up a bit. She always looks so polished and put together- not always an easy task in this weather!
Another totally classic look: the pleated skirt and cardigan. She threw in a extra little matching bow on top of her coiff which somehow manages to read chic, not froufrou. That's the power of Deneuve.
At a different point in the movie she's wearing a baby blue cardi over a matching gingham dress. So cute! It reminded me of a St. John's santana knit sweater we have here at the store:
Then I put it together with some Perry Ellis ribbon tie, patent leather mary janes and a matching hand bag with gold closure and she's set!
But don't let the cheery singing and bubblegum hues fool you... You'll be weeping buckets by the end! But then just do as Catherine does: put a bow in your hair and sing your cares away. The rain can actually be quite cleansing.
