How to Dress Like Zooey Deschanel

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be sharing with y'all how you can dress like Zooey Deschanel. I'm going to be sharing what her look is, how you can copy that look, give you outfit ideas, share where you can buy similar things, and throw in a few surprises. *grin*

| Fashion |
Zooey's style is the perfect blend of: quirky, modern, classic, and vintage. She has a way of keeping vintage clothing from looking too much like a costume, by adding the right blend of modern pieces to her finished look.

When shopping for her style keep your eye out for the following details: vintage details [especially for the 60s - 70s], polka-dots, quirky flower prints, bright colors, Peter Pan collars, stripes, high-waisted skirts, cardigans in classic styles, gingham, etc....

If you are totally unsure what styles are from the 1960s & 1970s research them out either on the internet or at your local library. If you have a good understanding of fashion history, it will help you form an eye of what looks vintage -- besides the Hollywood cliches from the 70s/80s. You can also study old family photos, magazines from the era, sewing patterns from the era, etc....

Recent Instagram Outfits

Hello everyone! I want to share with y'all some of my recent outfits from the past couple of days that I've featured on my Instagram.

Tuesday after working at Ulta Beauty in the morning doing truck, I went to the Indiana State Fair with my Mum and some of my sisters since it was $2 day. My outfit of choice was the one featured on the left: Cream Lace Tank [Forever 21 via thredUP] | Black Shorts [Old Navy] | Converse [gift] | Crossbody Bag [c/o OASAP].

Only bad thing about this outfit was that I forgot to put sunscreen on before heading out to the fairgrounds, so my poor shoulders got some sun [since I was wearing a sleeveless top].

Bramblewood Fashion's 6th Birthday!

Hello everyone! Today, to the day of the week, marks the sixth birthday of Bramblewood Fashion! It is hard to believe that I've been blogging for so long. I've met so many people over the years, some of which have become good friends of mine. I've joined many fandoms over the years too [Doctor Who, Sherlock, Marvel, etc...]. My taste in music, films, television, and fashion has changed too over the years -- which is a good thing since I was nineteen and fresh out of high-school when I started BF.

When I first started blogging I wasn't that into fashion, and BF was more focused on me sharing my sewing projects. Eventually at the encouraging of one of my friends, Rebecca, Gaby & I started sharing our outfits with y'all! Eventually this blog space evolved over the years into more of a fashion/beauty and sometimes lifestyle blog.

Week In Feminine Dress - Day 5
 - Went to London, UK on a historical costuming tour with my Mum hosted by Jennie Chancey of Sense & Sensibility Patterns.
- Met my best friend through the blogging world at a conference [Achaia from Marie-Madeline Studio].

Fashion Inspiration | Flare Jeans

Images found on Pinterest.
This past year I've come to really love flare jeans, especially when paired with boho type tops/tunics, booties, and floppy hats. I haven't always loved the 70s/bohemian look when it comes to fashion, but I think my dear friends, the Long Ladies over at Marie-Madeline Studio, have rubbed off on me a bit over the years. 'Cause it is because of them that I've started to like several styles that I never really considered before: like sequins. Thanks, gals!
