This week's Aussie Curves challenge is celebrity copycat, and it took me a while to find the gorgeous Zooey Deschanel. I don't follow celebrities or care what they're wearing usually. General celebrity google searches brought up bland, boring celebrities, doing celebrity style quizzes helped a little, then I thought to try searching for colourful celebrity style. Eventually I came up with the lovely Zooey. She gives off a quirky vintage/retro vibe. She wears a lot of dresses, she likes bows and fun prints and blue. This was something I could work with.
Using the fun print/bow/blue combo, I chose to wear my heart-print dress from Asos Curve, and over the top an Asos Curve blue coat that looks similar to the one Zooey is wearing. This photo shoot is the second try. On Saturday I got all dressed up, went out to take photos and it was raining. I took some under the verandah but when I checked them later I noticed the clothes were all rumpled. So for the first time in 3 years, I had to iron my clothes. Hope you're appreciating this Aussie Curves! Take two, a sunny Sunday, I managed to find a somewhat shady spot and tried again.
I'm wearing the Asos Curve heart print dress backwards. I like the v-neck at the back of the dress better than the round neck. I like the tie belt but it never sits where I want it to. My black Mary-Janes seemed like the best Zooey-type choice to pair with the dress since I don't own heels.
I bought the Asos Curve coat on clearance and it's been a great winter essential. I love the colour and the style. I bought a 26 so it fits over all my layers, and it's a wool blend so I stay toasty. My hands stay warm too in the pockets. Red and blue are one of my favourite combos, I'm glad I was able to show off this dress which I've had a while but not photographed. Thanks Zooey! I'm channeling the out and about celebrity style there with the sunglasses and coat, hee hee.
You may have noticed that my hair is way shorter than it used to be! I had it cut the shortest I'd ever gone and I love it. Not the best style to copy Zooey with, but it's easy to care for! I'm wearing my favourite hair bow (I think Zooey would approve) and some earrings I thrifted from the op shop.
I tried to do some eye make-up but I'm just not good at that stuff. Eyeliner won't even go on- I run it along and nothing happens. You wouldn't know but I'm wearing mascara and my usual red lipstick (which fits in well with Zooey's style).
Ok enough papparazzi, I'm off!
