New Girl

Just in case you didn’t know, there is this a New Girl in town! And by that I mean the new show on Tuesday nights called New Girl, starring the adorable Zooey Deschanel. She plays Jess, a happy-go-lucky, girly-girl who often ends up in awkward but charmingly funny situations with her three male roommates. The show at times can get a little too goofy, but there are plenty of laugh out loud moments to make up for it. True to Zooey Deschanel style, there is a lot of sartorial inspiration. See the striped sweater above. Adorbs! Also check out my Zooey pinterest board. This girl crush has officially gone to the next level. Let me know if you are a fan!

Places to shop: Tremont

I just found a new vintagey clothing shop, right in the Cleveland area, Tremont, to be exact. Tremont is a charming area that has been reinvented with galleries, shops, and some of the best restaurants and bars in Cleveland. It also is home to some very unique and creative merchants such as Lilly Handmade Chocolates, who carries specialty beers and wines in addition to her handmade chocolates. The store owner is in love with the color pink, and if you ever go to her shop you will find several pink piggy banks, not to mention bright pink walls. You never forget a place that sells chocolate and beer, and is completely decorated in pink—great marketing strategy.
Tremont also is starting to become home to some interesting clothing boutiques, including Pinky’s Daily Planner, a handmade clothing collection designed by Stephanie Fralick. It is described on the site as being modern, but if anything the clothing has a vintage flair. It is where I imagine Zooey Deschanel would shop if she lived in Cleveland, and it has a similar style as Anthropologie—and similar pricing. The store has very limited hours: Friday 2 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays 2 to 9 p.m., but you can also visit the store by appointment. And if you can’t make it to the store you can make purchases on the Web site. Here is an idea of what they have:



Movie outfit



I love Zooey Deschanel’s looks in 500 Days of Summer so much that I thought I would try to recreate the look from one of the movie posters (see below). I am now in search of the grey, shimmery tights from the movie poster. Does anyone have any good recommendations for where to find them? 

Blouse: Converse by John Varvatos $98
Trouser Shorts: Charlotte Russe $24.99
Tights???
Shoes: Stuart Weitzman $151
