I’ve been meaning to share some screenshots of this movie ever since I first found it on Netflix. It’s called Populaire and it’s the most adorable romantic comedy that takes place in late 1950s France. It’s about a small town girl who gets a job as a secretary and her boss quickly realizes she has the potential to become the next speed-typing champion of the world. …with a lot of training. The costumes in this film are AMAZING and I couldn’t help but push pause several times to try and capture a few of my favorite looks.
Rose, the main character, obviously gets the most spotlight as far as wardrobe goes, but all the extras in the film have excellent outfits as well!
I love the square neckline and the little bow detail on the back of this dress…
…and the shoulder buttons on this shirt!
The halter/off shoulder/sweetheart neckline combo on this dress is so, so beautiful! I mean seriously…
I saw these glasses and now I want the Victory Optical Tang frames in brown!
More awesome eyewear!
I’m not sure if the curtains below are original Lucienne Day designs or not but they sure look like it! What a find!
Aside from all the great sewing inspiration, Populaire is a really super cute movie and I highly recommend it if you need a feel-good romantic comedy to watch. It’s in French with subtitles, but I’m secretly 90 years old and watch everything (seriously, everything) with subtitles anyway so that never bothers me. It’s one of my new favorite films!
Have you seen it? What did you think?
