When I learned that my friend hadn’t seen Amélie, I scheduled a movie night immediately. It had been a couple of years since I had last seen it myself, and it was the perfect midweek pick-me-up. The film reeks of inspiration, aesthetically and intellectually.

Amelie | The Pursuit of Hippieness

I love all the lessons in this movie: to focus on the funny little details of life, to always pay it forward, and that those who might feel different from others should never lose faith. And the scenery is just incredible; it makes me sentimental for the city that I haven’t even left yet.

Oh, and that nineties style? Get me some vintage Docs and a midlength skirt, stat.
