Plussie Style Steal: Jess From New Girl


I get a lot of style crushes. One day I'm mooning over pictures of white suits imagining I'm Kerry Washington in Scandal, the next I'm ordering black spandax pants channelling Kat Von D. 
My style influences are eclectic but one thing they have nothing to do with is body shape or dress size. 
Listen ladies I heart Adele and Beth Dito as much as the next fatty but flicking through any fashion mag you would think these are our only options as style icons and that quite frankly is far too narrow for me.
Its easy to discard certain looks even though you absolutely adore them, because you just cant see them working on a plus size figure. 
That's where I come in. Every month I'm going to do my version of a famous chicks style. Showing you how I pull elements of their key look together and make it work on a fatty.I'm calling it my "Plussie Style Steal" come along for the ride. 
This month I'm all about Jess (played by the teeny tiny Zooey Deschanel ) from the TV series New Girl.





Words can not convey how much I love the style of this kooky character. 
Its one part Parisian chic to one part thrift store and so sweet it almost makes your teeth hurt.Its what I would term cute casual and its actually perfect for a plus size hottie.
It matters not a bit that the real Jess could fit in my pocket, she is rockin some serious style and ladies I'm going to steal it.

Casting around some of my favorite plus size brands I've found some perfect outfits to style stalk Jess.

Copy The Look Ladies This fifties inspired frock is as pretty as a picture and one of my all time faves from the Jess wardrobe.



Get your version from Asos Curve

Cute nerd is Jess's signature style as are vaguely retro looking pastel colours as seen here in this beautiful yellow number.

Today Betty is....Jess from New Girl


And here I am channelling Jess.I've stolen her style and I'm making it my very own.
I've chosen a beautiful skater dress by Yours clothing to help me copy the long lashed Ms D.
As soon as I set eyes on this red rose check number I knew it would be perfect for my Jess homage.
Its got the vintage inspired print, bright colours and sweet little belt which all go to make it a perfect Jess dress dupe.

Getting my Jess on
To style stalk a little bit more Ive worn my hair down and gently curled it before adding a Minnie Mouse headband. Its girly and very Zooey.If Zooey was fat and lived in England.

Hey New Girl



I'm stealing her style-plussie fashion
So there you have it. I've stolen Zooey Deschanels style and now you can too!
Keep your eyes peeled for lots more Plussie Style steals and please let me know if there's anyone's style you adore but never thought you could copy. I love  a challenge.
