Hey, everyone! As a longtime fan of Zooey Deschanel, I decided to pay tribute to her bubbly, girly, and carefree style by featuring her in my Style Icon series. Zooey has the Modcloth-esque vintage/feminine thing on lock, so to get her look I wore my tiny horse Peter Pan collar dress (if you look closely at the print, you’ll see tiny horses). I wore patent leather heels and grabbed the belt from my trench coat to create a belted waist. For beauty, I curled my eyelashes to get Zooey’s doe-eyed look and left my hair in braids till the last possible second to get loose curls. I also put on a barely-there lip color; Zooey’s not one for showy lipstick. In addition to being a style icon, Zooey has been a role model of mine for a long time. Her dedication to being an outspoken feminist while dressing traditionally feminine has definitely resonated with me. “We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a fucking feminist and wear a fucking Peter Pan collar. So fucking what?” is one of my favorite quotes of all time.
