My Girl Crush on Zooey Deschanel's Fashion Sense

I admit it.  I have a major girl crush on Zooey Deschanel.  And not because we have the same haircut.  I love her fun, quirky persona.  I'm charmed by her ability to star in mainstream movies without losing herself in the process.  More than anything, I'm absolutely smitten by her brilliant sense of style.  In fact, I think I may actually be crushing directly on her fashion sense apart from her all together. It's obvious by looking at my designs that I'm a big fan of vintage-inspired fashion, and she can rock vintage looks like no one else.

One of my most recent favorites is the outfit she wore to perform with her band, She & Him, at Coachella last month.  It makes me want to run full-speed to the nearest thrift store and grab the first pale blue, lace-trimmed sundress I see (or blow off work to sit down at the sewing machine actually make something for myself for the first time in longer than I can remember).  The way that she cleverly paired the dress with white fish nets and (gasp!) matching pale blue ballet flats makes me swoon.  Sigh.  She looks incredibly spring-y, and proves that you can still be comfortable at a music festival without sacrificing all sense of style.

Stay tuned, by the way, for a series of posts this summer centered around photos we take at our favorite looks from various music festivals.  We'd love to see your favorites as well.  You can submit them to us right here.
