A New Girl Thanksgiving!

I’m still trying to find my exact blog “niche” so I’ve decided to dedicate a blog post once a week to the fashions on one of my favorite shows. If it becomes too tedious or obnoxious, I’ll find something else to talk about. But for now, here’s a fashion breakdown of Tuesday night’s (11/15/2011) The New Girl. I know, another post dedicated to Zooey Deschanel but I can’t help it! She’s a total button with amazing style (and presumably an amazing stylist).

Ok, here we go! If I can’t find the exact designer, I’ll find a fabulous substitute for my fellow Zooeyphiles. (Note that I don’t own the rights to these screen shots. They belong to Fox, obvi.) Oh, and I apologize for the crappy quality. The episode isn't available on Hulu yet so the pics are a bit bootleggy :-/ I'll update this post as soon as I can find better pics! 

Look 1: Floral dress and cardi (Ok, another aside -- I couldn't get a great shot of the whole ensemble where she wasn't holding "America's Last Turkey"). 

Dress: Daffy Floral Print Gathered Dress, $245

Cardi: Banana Republic Merino Wool Cardigan, $69.50

Ballet flats: J. Crew Cece Suede Ballet Flats in bright flame, $128

Look 2: T-shirt and jeans

Apron: I’m willing to bet the apron Jess is wearing is a one of a kind. Since we all aren’t amazing with the sewing machine, I would browse Etsy.

Tee: (Seen here in an earlier episode) I can’t find it for sale anywhere but I’m hoping someone sells them soon. In the mean time, you can make your own on sites like and

Jeans: In the (very few) pictures I’ve seen of ZD in pants, she’s wearing deep indigo jeans. Get the look (and the PERFECT fit) in these Levi’s Curve ID jeans.

Look 3: Red dress

3 months rent: Lanvin Silk-Gazar Dress, $3,665
Ramen for a week or two: Diane von Furstenberg Madeline Dress, $417 

Bow/headband: Yet another Etsy search. It’s such a great way to find custom/vintage/handmade/repurposed items – Plus you’re supporting small businesses!

Look 4: You’re on your own with the turkey costume ;)
