Style Icon: Zooey Deschanel

I love Zooey Deschanel.

I know about the whole Manic Pixie Dream Girl thing.  And I get it.  I know all her characters are pretty much the same (even though she's been quoted as saying she's been quoted as saying "I don't wanna do the same thing over and over again because that's, well, first of all that's no fun."   face it, Zooey.  Your characters could use some variety.  That's not to say I want her to change, though.  To be honest, I love her quirky characters.  I see a lot of me in them, and I'm sure other girls do, too, which is probably why she's so popular.  


One of my exes told me I looked like her (and more recently, someone told me I looked like her sister Emily...so I guess I've got the whole Deschanel Family Resemblance thing going!) 

Okay I'll be honest.  The main reason I even posted about Zooey was to showcase those top two photos.  I've had them saved on my hard drive forever.  I love everything about both of those outfits!  (Um, except I'd wear them with leggings instead of nylons--DON'T GET MAD, weirdo Twitter guy!) 

Zooey is also probably the reason I toy with the idea of having bangs now and again.

(This was my first day of temping at my office job a couple years ago. It doesn't feel like that long ago, but when I look at how much my hair has grown in that time, I'm shocked.  It was ages ago.)
But with the exception of the side-swept bang (and the very first day of wearing bangs after a haircut!) they usually don't work out too well on me.

I really do need a haircut though...hmm.

After seeing Zooey's nails on the red carpet last night though, I realized one thing--

(We'd totally be bffls if we hung out in real life, cuz my bffl Lauren had this same EXACT thing done with her nails 6 years ago--and when she asked for it the manicurist looked at her like she was insane.)
