  1. I love her !!! …she’s so funny and chic!

  2. Great post! I love her style, but her character is too much for me. I love Zooey, even went to her concert, but the way she acts in this movie makes me want to barf!

    1. agreed! she’s exaggeratedly silly in this show – although the critics seem to like it!

  3. love this show, i thought i wouldn’t like it, but I really do. I like how they gave her a really defined, consistent style

  4. I just watched an episode of this show, and my favorite part is definitely her style! I really love all of your polyvore sets, especially the “It’s Jess!” The coat is amazing!

  5. I adore this show, it’s one of the very few new shows that have stuck with me. Zooey is quirky and cute and I adore Schmidt :))

  6. oh this is awsome! I love the show!

  7. I love her and the show! She’s pretty awesome
