Get The TV Look - New Girl

Ciao bellezze!

What I'm listening to:  A Heart Full of Love - Les Miserables Soundtrack (from the incredible, incredible movie!)

Fun fact about my life right now: I am so behind in math.  I hate it so much, why does it exist.  Can I get an amen?

Okay, so I decided (as if this hasn't been done a million times) that every week or every other, I'm going to write a Get The Look on a character from a TV show of whose clothes you are coveting.  Or at least ones that I really am.  I hope you guys like these, please comment if you want me to do a particular character, and I'll do my best to write a Get The Look on them! 

This week's character is funky, adorkable, beautiful Jess from New Girl!  Played by the wonderful Zooey Deschanel (my ultimate style idol/girl crush), Jess is a unique middle school teacher who moves into a loft with three highly amusing guys after she finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her.  I am an all time winner at horribly depicting shows and movies, so just check it out for yourself if you live under a rock and have never even heard of this hilarious show.  New Girl brings playful, quirky fashion to life as Jess rocks frilly dresses, peter pan collars, and short skirts with tights.  Basically, I meshed all of her pretty outfits into three of my own that I picked out.  Enjoy! 

The first thing you're going to want to do is curl your hair with a thicker wand curler to get the loose and thick curls, and then put half of it up like Jess almost always wears her.  Also, thicken your lashes with half a pound of mascara.  I don't have any, but if you do, wear them fake lashes.  Also, if you have boring light brown eyes like me, feel free to take a moment and cry about not having big blue eyes like Zooey.

This is one of Jess' many fancy outfits.  Usually, she pairs a cute dress (mostly just a solid color a-line) with a thick coat. 

In the picture, she wears a cream-colored dress and a brightly colored coat.  But for me, I inverted that and wore a mint colored dress from Forever 21 and a light gray coat from Kohls.  These black bow flats are from Top Shop. 

Jess rocks a lot of plain a-lines, and pulls a belt to really cinch the waist and give her a narrow look.  Also, she flaunts these ADORABLE glasses (that she probably actually needs, unlike me). 

This black dress with puffed sleeves is from Forever 21, glasses were from a used clothing store called Plato's Closet.  The red bow ballet flats are from Banana Republic.  Also, I'd like to point out that she wears a lot of black tights. Like, in almost every single episode with a cute miniskirt or black shorts. 

Yes, that miniskirt.  Jess wears it a lot with an assortment of pretty cardigans, which I adore! 

I tried my best to copy this, with a twist. I chose a pastel pink cardigan, white cami, and a black tutu from Target.  Even though it's not pictured, I am sure that Jess would rock a black tutu like this.  Oh, and where did my bangs go?  I haven't the slightest clue. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this!  Do you think these outfits depicted Jess' style?  I hope everyone thinks so! 

Oh, and I wasn't kidding. Suggest to me some styles I should cover!  

Have a lovely day, until next time,
