This movie is nowhere near new and has been out on DVD for almost a year now, but it’s one of my favourite movies and I can’t help but to watch it when ever I am in need of inspiration while writing or sewing. It’s one of those movies that always seem to get me out of a funk and gets my creative juices flowing. If you have not seen it, I would highly recommend you give it a watch. It’s a great quirky coming of age kinda of love story. The main character played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt had a bit of growing up to do and Zooey’s character played a big part in that.
I would give my left arm just for Zooey Deschanel’s wardrobe in this movie. As a matter of fact I think I would do that for just about her entire wardrobe point-blank period! Her style has the classic feminine touch that I aspire to create sometimes and I tend to look to her photos whenever I need help in that department.
The wardrobe from 500 Days of Summer can best be described as clean, classy, and very feminine. There is a touch of femininity in every outfit whether it’s the detailing, fabric, or even the color palette.
It’s almost impossible to be described as anything besides a lady when wearing any one of her outfits in this movie. Not to mention these are some great date night inspirations as far as what to wear on a first date. Heck, on even the 5th date. The tailored shorts are so great for a wardrobe staple because of their versatility. You could wear them to work, out on a date, or even to a function.
What I love even more about the movie, is that it seemed like both characters were taken from another time. It was an age-old story, set in a modern time, with two lovely old souls. And yes, I even liked Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s wardrobe from the movie. Now normally I prefer a man who is well put together, because no offense, it makes it look like they actually care about something. In 500 Days of Summer, Joseph’s wardrobe was pretty disheveled and always looked like he had a hard day at the office. It took a turn for the utter worst when Summer left him(if you’ve not seen the movie I apologize for giving that away). Nonetheless, you can’t help but be a little smitten by a fella in a button up, vest, and rolled up sleeves.
I adore this red dress that she wore and I am trying to replicate it at the moment because I have not been able to find one like it anywhere all summer. Hopefully, I can have it done in time for those lovely Fall Nights Out. Can you imagine one of these dresses around autumn foliage, at dawn, out at a dinner party, with pretty little lighted trees… Yeah. Clearly I have gone a little overboard with my imagination on this dress. Fashion tends to do that to me sometimes.
Anyhow, this is a pretty awesome movie with a great wardrobe to inspire the senses. Your eyes will be wooed by the color palette and soft feminine details, while your fingers are itching just to touch the tempting textures, all the while your mind is taken to memories of relationships past, present, and future. Hope you enjoy the movie as much as I did.
Nothing but love,
