I Want This in My Life: To Tommy From Zooey

If I haven't made it clear enough, I am a huge Zooey Deschanel fan. If I could raid any one celebrity's closet, it would unquestionably be her's (that's a creepier sentence than I had anticipated). When I heard she was helping design a capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger, I was psyched. Admittedly, I have never bought one item of clothing from Hilfiger before, but I was hoping that would change.

The collection, named To Tommy From Zooey, just launched today and it's even more beautiful then I could've imagined. Is it out of my price range? Hell yeah. But when have I let that stop me? I'm a very open shopaholic, and that's probably not going to stop any time soon.

The capsule emulates Zooey's style with some '60s inspired silhouettes and designs, leading to a very "mod" looking collection. There's certainly a good amount of Hilfiger influence but the look is also inherently Zooey (we're on a first name basis). Some of my absolute favorites are teh Stripe Pleated Dress (droolworthy), Diamond Pleat Dress and the lovely colored Pleated Dress; lots of Pleating, obviously. All the better for twirling around in.

I haven't written too much about fashion on the blog yet, but considering it's what I'm majoring in it's obviously something very important to me. As for my personal style, I've always had trouble classifying it, because I really don't feel that I fall into any specific category. When I go shopping, I buy what I like no matter what the style. A lot of the time I end up items that are probably a little on the bohemian side, but over the past few years I've thrown some more "classic" items in there as well (re: preppy). I grew up in one of the preppiest towns in all of America (this is not an exaggeration, seriously it's name checked in the Preppy Handbook) but somehow always managed to avoid owning a piece of Lily Pulitzer (gasp!). As I've gotten older, it's become clear the style of my hometown had a greater influence on me then I had thought, because I've started incorporating more and more preppy pieces of clothing in my wardrobe.

Anyways, I'm gonna put an end to that tangent because it's incredibly boring. You can check out Zooey's collection by clicking here, but if you can find it in your heart to leave some size 6s in the dresses listed above until I get my next paycheck, that would be wonderful.
