my translation of the oscars, or parisian chic

{Gap: trench, turtleneck, & jeans; Steve Madden boots}

So I just realized this, putting the post together- yes, I officially do love the Gap. It's definitely got good basics- and that's exactly what this outfit consists of! I think I was trying for Parisian- it was even the first time wearing red lips for work. But, when I showed the final pics to the BF, he said it reminded him of the wardrobe in the Oscar nominated movie Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy. Strange, but true- I guess it is a bit Euro circa 1970's. Any of guys see it- pretty amazing huh?!

  1. Love your trench! I have one quite similar to it. Wish it were cold enough in LA for me to wear it. Although, it was pretty cold today... but I didn't go out! x

    1. You can totally still pull it off in LA- just wear something shorter underneath to pull off the warm cold element :)
