La Vie en rose was one of the first French songs Ive heard when i was young. Because of it I dreamt of a glamorous, chic Parisian life. It was the city I wanted to be at. It had an air of romance too, no wonder movies like to use it as a soundtrack. This song too is close to my heart because it reminds me of three things in my life.
Though in english, rose means pink, I consider the song about the Rose as a flower too. With all the romance the song brings, who wouldnt think of red roses right? But instead of being too literal about a red rose, why not a violet rose?
As i grew up, my notion of romance has changed drastically from meeting someone special in the city to a that of the countryside/out of town. think of "under the tuscan sun" or "wedding date" or "sweet home alabama". Thats why I love this photograph of me with the beauitful countryside in the background. It resembles like my own vision of a perfect romantic getaway:)
about the look:
Violet was the key story int his look so majority of the pieces are of that color. The rose brooch became the fulcrum of the look tying the olive with the violet in a very rich contrast set amidst the rich greens and blues.
