One month of costume inspiration from our favorite movies and TV shows continues! Today’s costume comes from:
One of my favorite scenes from 500 Days of Summer was shot at downtown LA's Bradbury Building and I couldn't wait to go inside!
Zooey Deschanel played Summer to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Tom and the city of LA played the third lead!
I went with Zooey Deschanel's look from the end of the film, so the key Summer costume pieces that you’ll need include:
1. Beige Trench Coat (Mine is old Anthropologie, but this H&M one is perfect at $25!)
4. Black Briefcase or Purse (mine is thrifted from Goodwill - this is something easily grabable from your accessory pile!)
5. Thick Framed Glasses (super Zooey-esque cheap frames from Amazon)
"I think it's official. I'm in love with Summer."
So, when I walked inside the Bradbury Building, my jaw dropped. The architecture was incredible.
The last scene of the film was shot here...
...so I put on my best Joseph Gordon-Levitt job interview face...
...and shot some candids.
Zooey's look was easy to recreate...
Working with items that I had in my closet already, it was just a mix and match of a greenish sweater with a black skirt, a beige jacket, black purse, and a pair of thick black frames.
Another fun scene takes place at Broadway Bar. Summer gets hit on, JGL stands up for her, and well, watch for yourself!
Is the sign not gorgeous? This facade makes me happy each time I drive by it. This was the first time that I actually shot a photo in front of the bar even though I've been there numerous times for birthday parties.
Easy costume to copycat.
Now, if you can get your own Joseph Gordon-Levitt lookalike to be your Halloween date, you're 100% covered.
Two looks down, 29 to go!
PS, head on over to Instagram where I'll be teasing each day's post with a quote from the film or TV show the night before.
