- Nostalgia: I was raised to believe that The Muppet Christmas Carol is the best adaptation out there of the Dickens classic. This is a belief I still maintain today. "Light the lamp, not the rat!"
- A truly lovely musical score. As I was writing this blog post I realized that my favorite songs, "Life's a Happy Song, Me Party, and the Oscar nominated, Muppet or a Man? were written by Bret Mckenzie!
- Jason Segel. Who will always be Nick Andopolis to me.
- The cameos! Feist and N.P.H. and John Krasinski and Jim Parsons, to name a very few!
And last, but not least, Amy Adam's wardrobe. From her first scene, showing her grade school class how to fix a car (go Amy!) I was absolutely smitten with her adorable, bright, colourful, feminine, vintage inspired wardrobe.
This was one of my favorite outfits of hers. That bright yellow skirt! I love it paired with the red. So bright and colourful!
And you know I am in love with her cat eye frames! And that pattern on the blouse.
Another favorite was this gorgeous teal vintage (looking) dress. The addition of the bright purple belt is a great way to add some colour and fun.
Unfortunately I couldn't find any decent shots of this dress, I just pulled these off a youtube video. This is just such a perfect bright summery dress! I love the coordinating cardigan and belt paired with it.
And then there's the poster outfit, which I found a display picture of.
I just adore that adorable heart blouse and the subtle pattern mix with the skirt. I also wholly endorse a redhead rocking red!
Can I please have her hair, too?
I think my style is already pretty close to this, but I definitely came out of the film inspired to incorporate even more colour, vintage inspired pieces, and belted tucked in full skirts, to my wardrobe.
I can't find any other good photos, but trust me when I say the entire movie she was impeccably styled. I found myself wanting almost every article of clothing she wore!
I also found myself wanting a Jason Segel of my very own. Anyone know where I can get one of those?
