While I was in bed yesterday with my lingering Christmas stomach bug, I watched (500) Days of Summer on my iPhone.
I love this movie. It’s quirky, its different, it’s not all wrapped up nicely in a neat little package like most romantic comedies. I especially love Zooey Deschanel’s wardrobe.
I don’t especially look like Zooey (for starters, there’s that whole Asian thing, and I’m about 3 inches shorter, 15 pounds heavier, bigger-chested, and much smaller-footed—but we’re both allergic to eggs, dairy, and wheat gluten), but this is a style I can really get behind. The first time I saw this movie, I immediately thought Anthropologie, but according to this article, her wardrobe was a mix of affordable pieces from Old Navy, Gap, BCBG, and a ton of vintage. I think I need to get smarter about shopping.
It would be a little single white female of me to want to be Zooey, but how could I not? She’s just so adorable.
