The best look books stir up feeling. That's their job, they're supposed to manipulate you in to conjuring up a sense of belonging or understanding. You can or want to see yourself in the photographs. The lifestyle is yours for the taking. These photographs somehow, seem different- more genuine. I don't know if it's the model, the clothes or the extravagance of the overflowing rose bushes in the backdrop, but I feel like it's all for me, and I want it. I don't know about you guys but I could see myself living in these duds all season. The lookbook was shot by Caesy Oney. You can shop the entire collection here.
It doesn't get more True-American than a Tommy Hilfiger collaboration with our very own primetime sweet heart Zooey Deschanel. The result is basically Jessica Day's closet had she rid herself of everything but red, white and blue. It's flirty, adorkable, costume vintage chic that only Zooey could dream up. This is just business as usual for the talented bells player. "When I was in high school I made my own clothes and I grew up creating a lot of my own looks.” Of course she did!
Entitled To Tommy, From Zooey, the capsule collection includes 16 dresses and accessories for the kind of girl that gets dressed by bluebirds every morning. Classically structured shift, coat, and shirt dresses feature fun surprises like patterns inside pleats! Pretty spicy eh? And it's available online! Go check it out!
If Twiggy made time for sailing in Cape Cod circa 1967 she no doubt would've had her hand in this capsule collection. A marriage between nautical palettes and mod style silhouettes each dress is the perfect spring/summer wardrobe addition. Zooey's smoldering baby blues don't hurt either.
“It’s a mix of mod and nautical, which I like to call ‘modical.'"
Schmidt: I'm really gonna need you to step it up tonight, okay? When I see you, I wanna be thinking, "Who let the dirty slut out of the slut house?"
Jess: [in a British accent] Probaby the slut butler...right?
Nick: And when I wear it, I feel hot to trot.
Jess: You're wearing a dress.
Winston: Yeah, don't say "hot to trot."
Nick: My coat makes me say things like that!
It's that time of the week again...
This Off the Shoulder Blouse from H&M is darling and versatile.

Ami Bootie in Nude perfect for...I don't know...everything.
I'm going to be real with you, I go in to Zara for a buzz, a quick fix, a summer fling, a one night stand. I know for the most part, my impulse purchases will be just as fleeting, just as temporary and leave me just as empty as the aforementioned. It's hard though, to look away. The way they sashay those clothes around like a revolving door of cheap magic tricks seemingly every day is mesmerizing. It's a science, and they're playing with me--I know this; we know this.
There are those few moments in time however that stick out to us. Sometimes, you find something that, in all the chaos, makes you wonder. For a brief moment, amidst a swarm of hunched women shuffling around you in circles for their shoe size, it's just you and that garment. Such was the case with the above high waisted wide legged trousers. I fell in love friends. I saw a future. I saw work, cocktails, interviews, beach days, date nights, oxford shirt pairings, crop tops, blazers, turtlenecks, long hair, short hair, high heels, cat heels, no heels. The fabric didn't scream fast fashion (on my 3rd ware and still satisfied) and instantly twenty outfits came to mind. This is the stuff Zara look book dreams are made of. The best part...they're high waisted culottes...so, you know...slimming fat pants. Bring on the chocolate bunnies!
Happy Weekend folks!
