Closet Raid: Zooey Deschanel in (500) Days of Summer


I’ll admit it: I’m not much of a Zooey Deschanel fan.  Maybe I need to give her another chance, but that Manic Pixie Dream Girl vibe kinda turns me off.  The thing is, I’m a HUGE admirer of her style, from her thick bangs to her cutesy shoes.  I love so many of her looks that I decided to focus on just one of her movies: (500) Days of Summer.  Now, I know there was a stylist for the film, but my goodness, doesn’t she wear those outfits so well?



Every outfit has at least a hint of vintage style, with delightfully feminine cuts and sweet details like bows, lace, and embroidery.  Not to mention the dreamy color scheme–nearly all of her outfits are done in shades of blue.  That’s something I’d love to try one day.  I don’t have much blue in my closet because I’m a little unsure of how to mix it with other colors, but this movie proves that blue on blue is a perfectly viable option.


Now that I think of it…I do have one blue dress in the back of my closet that reminds me of that pretty pewter one with the wide sash.  I wore it once last year when I first got my DSLR, but now that I’ve gotten much better at using my camera, I think I should pull out that dress again and give it the treatment it deserves.

Have you seen (500) Days of Summer?  What’s your favorite outfit?

    1. So glad we’re on the same page! It seems like almost everyone is a big Zooey fan, but I just don’t get it. Still, I have to give her mad props for her outfits!


  1. (500) Days of Summer is one of my very favourites!! And I love Zooey! I think she’s great – definitely give her another chance!! I adore the dress she wears to the wedding (last photo). It’s sooo pretty, I want it.
    Much love,


    1. Lots of people have told me she’s really good in New Girl–have you seen it? I think when I get some time, I want to watch it. And I love that dress, too! I’ve been searching for a similar one for YEARS.


I'd love to hear from you!
