women’s everyday & formal wear inspired by Oscars dresses 2013

[ 0 ] March 1, 2013 |

Oscars-inspired women's clothingAh, the Oscars. Whether you tune in or not, you know it’s so hard to escape the talks of Oscars fashion and dresses the day and week after the show. (Oh yeah, and awards were also given and performances were also had.)

Gawking at the dresses is fun, but then you realize you can’t ever have them in your closet. Most of them are waaaaay too elaborate to wear, and expensive. So I’ve picked some of the best dresses at the Oscars 2013 and paired them with possible everyday clothing and formalwear that feature the same inspiring touches. (This was much harder than I thought!) Come see what I’ve come up with:
