Best Picture Inspired Style: Midnight In Paris

Midnight in Paris is about a family who travels to Paris. The conflict arises when the engaged couple (Rachel McAdams and Owen Wilson) start to realize they want different things out of this trip, and possibly, out of life. Rachel McAdams takes more of a tourists approach to Paris while Owen Wilson is trying to capture the essence of the 1920s Paris experienced by Hemingway, Picasso, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein. I too had a hard time deciding between current Paris and the writer’s paradise that was Paris in the 20s. So I went with an outfit that assumes the essence of a timeless Paris. I couldn’t go with out the signature American trying to be French look: my striped shirt.

Bangs and french style

I found this while reading A Cup of Jo.

Jezebel writes “The January Anthropologie catalog knows that you secretly wish you could be a quirky, insouciant French gamine living in Paris. Or at least: Dress like one.”

Joanna agrees that she is guilty as charged, and I have to say that there is nothing I want more than to accidentally get caught in the rain while wearing a chic trench and darling dress, sit alone in coffee shops and appear content, and ride bikes with bushels of flowers in the front basket. I also really want this girl’s haircut. Don’t be all French and pretend like you don’t care.
