{Penelope}

One of my favorite movies is back on Netflix Streaming! It's called Penelope, and it could best be described as a modern day fairytale that looks like a mix between Pushing Daisies/Amelie/Royal Tenenbaums. 

Due to a family curse Penelope is born with a pig nose, and her family does everything they can to break the curse and protect Penelope from the outside world. It has a fantastic cast, and Penelope's wardrobe is darling, it makes me want to stock up on cardigans and colorful mary janes. 

And as an added plus James Mcavoy and his stupidly blue eyes have a good amount of screen time. 

A fun movie to watch, and it's rated PG so if you have young ones they might enjoy it too!

This is my favorite modern (and non-period drama) movie! It's so sweet and quirky and funny. I also love Penelope's wardrobe (and her room!) and would love to dress even a little like her.

Agreed, there are some really darling, timelessly lovely outfits in this endearing movie.

Love this movie and so do my kids! It is great when we have a movie that everyone likes, but it is important not to wear it out LOL.

I'm always looking for movies with this sort of look to the film. (I know that's an odd requirement, but hey.) I like really cool visual movies. Any other recommendations you have would be fantastic!

This is one of my favorite movies! I loved it so much I had to buy myself a scarf so I could pretend I was Penelope. I am still looking for the perfect coat.
