Romcom to Wardrobe: French Kiss

Fact: The women in my family are obsessed with Meg Ryan and her classic romcoms. As a blonde adolescent, I spent the better part of six years in pursuit of achieving her coveted care-free haircut. I mean, what normal teenager dreams of a day at the salon getting coiffed by Sally Hershberger? It was by no means healthy, but this tenacious hair-raising phase spanned from middle school to college -- sadly, I have pictures to prove it! 

And while I said c'est la vie to Meg's signature cut, I'm still just as smitten with her movies. One of my absolute favorites is French Kiss. Please, tell me you've seen it! It's one of those classics I find myself quoting on a regular basis. In fact, this past weekend I recited one of my favorite lines:
"Happy - smile. Sad - frown. Use the corresponding face for the corresponding emotion."
Although I'm not sure the people around me had any idea as to what I'd just said, uttering those words made me happy inside. Days later, I'm still thinking about the movie and wishing I had an hour to dust off my DVD and take an imaginary trip to France with Kate (Meg Ryan) and Luc (Kevin Kline). In the meantime, I think I'll spend the rest of the day spouting out movie quotes. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of Meg's French Kiss wardrobe.
"Spasm! Spasm! Oh, God, here it comes... lactose intolerance!"
