What I Wore: Gamine
What I Wore: Jeans (Gap), Shoes (Crown Vintage), Shirt (Similar Here), Vest (Similar Here), Coat (Similar Here), Scarf (Similar Here), Bracelet (Popbasic)
Do you know what the word "gamine" means? As in, have you ever looked up its definition. Its a girl with mischevious or boyish charms. Well, I'm owner of a Marauders' Map, so I don't know about mischief, but boyish? This outfit? Yeah.
And you know what?
I'm in love with that fact. With the vest. With the whole look, really. The outfit is equally at home out to dinner or lounging around the house. And it's be equally right if I strode along the streets of Paris, or rode up to the mountains. The best part is, except for the boots (which were on The List), all of the items are ones I've had a year or more. Yes, I've done the culling of the closet thing in the past few years, and certainly haven't stopped shopping as The List is proof of, but... Not gonna lie. I'm feeling pretty content with my closet, even as I feel my style is evolving. Versatile basics have seen me though all that, and will continue to do so, I'm sure.
So, what about you? Ever try to put on some "boyish charm?"
