O UT F I T | New Girl

09 December, 2013

Dress: Urban Outfitters (old), £15
Glasses*: c/o London Retro via My Optique
Brogues: Topshop (old), £30
Bag: Charity Shop, £4

I was recently contacted by Zalando to take part in their 'New Girl' inspired competition in where you feature a blog post dedicated to the show. As a self-confessed lover of the sitcom, and particularly Zooey Deschanel's kooky, retro style I decided to style an outfit based on star of the show: Miss Jessica Day! In terms of style I'm probably most like Jess as I have an eclectic mixture of clothing and accessories, as well as a tendency to hoard pretty little objects. My bedroom in itself is a treasure trove. Admittedly, Jess's style is a little more prim and proper than my own, but her adoration for one-off, vintage pieces is something we most definitely share. A particular episode that I re-call is one in where her housemates are mocking her for her collection of crazy bags, which is something I am also guilty of; WELL, HELLOOOOO CRAZY CAT BAG!

Both the dress and my faithful, battered, golden brogues are rather old and have served me well. Jess is known for her consistent love of pretty, 50's and 60's shaped tea dresses and I can see her wearing this burgundy and lace little number that I'm sporting as she skips around her apartment. Of course, she would not be Jessica Day without her thick-rimmed, geek chic glasses that sit neatly beneath her fringe. I happen to have a similar pair of London Retro frames that were recently sent to me by My Optique. Now all I'm missing is Schmidt with his witty one-liners for a best friend by my side and a beautiful apartment in L.A.

If you want to piece together a Jessica Day inspired wardrobe too, be sure to browse Zalando's 'New Girl' collection here.
