Would Zooey Deschanel in New Girl wear this outfit?

I like retro inspired stuff but not the full on repro vintage Lady V/Vivien of Holloway kinda thing.

Am 7 inches shorter than the model so dress would be a respectable length.

Anyone? wine

Yes. Great outfit!

Oh I really wanted to love this thread. To be really honest, the overall idea of the dress is lovely but the neckline of doing something weird to the model's chest - it either fits her badly or is poorly cut.

The shoes aren't to my personal taste so I can't really comment.

Sorry I'm not being more positive...

S'alright apathetic have some wine anyway smile.

I'm quietly confident that the dress looks ill-fitting on the model because she's tall and thin as opposed to my short and curvy. I have loads of dresses with that neckline and know for sure that it's flattering on me.

As always with asos I'll see how it looks when it turns up.

The shoes I'm unapologetic about. The fact that they're only half leopard makes them Kate Middleton conservative compared to the rest of my wardrobe 😁.

Yes I think she would.

I miss Zooey On New Girl. Megan Fox is not good.

Megan Fox is on New Girl??!!
I am so behind. It used to be something that DH would humour me by watching but he got bored of it so now I never get to see it.

Depends on your size.

If you are big all over or very busty that dress is going to look costume like.

I like the dress but think the skirt should have been fitted like a pencil skirt to suit the top half which I love.

The shoes are not my taste but aren't horrible.

Love the dress and shoes, especially together.

Can't stand Zooey 'Zooey' Deschanel, though!

I think she'd wear the dress but I can't imagine her in the shoes. I dont think they're her style.

Definitely the dress but I think she'd be in "clunkier" shoes tbh.
Yy to Megan Fox being shit. Wasn't a particular fan of Zooey but didn't realise we were being spoilt with her!

Love Zooey, love the dress.
Not sure about the shoes though. Think she wears a lot of flats?

Eyelashcurler Wed 03-Aug-16 19:20:46

Not sure about Zooey but I would wear the shoes: lush!

cheese I'm a 10-12 (more a 12 at the min) with 30E boobs so not huge of body or boob. That neckline seems to suit me as does the tea dress shape (bit 'apple'y right now, don't want things that are tight at the belly).

Don't want to wear flats as I'm only wee and don't feel 'dressed up' in flats. Have lots of retro style maryjane and T-bar heels but none in a colour that would complement the dress.

Am not as sold on the shoes as I am the dress but will report back after picking them up on Friday.
