I'm totally posting about cotton

I'd like to point out a new-ish feature I have on my left sidebar. <------------ Over there. It's called {{{ Links I Love }}}, where I've linked to marvelous projects (most of them are DIY) or just stuff I love that I see on my blog journeys. I hope you find them as inspirational as I do!

Also, a huge W E L C O M E to my new readers! The more the merrier. I've enjoyed reading your comments so much and I'm making sure I visit each and every one of your blogs, so I hope you don't mind me dropping in unannounced.

Of course, a squishy and inappropriately long bear-hug to my longtime readers. For sticking with me even when my posts are strangely sporadic & boring, and even though I've categorized myself as only a moderate drinker (you know who you are).

Now..........am I really posting about a Cotton commercial? But of course. I find inspiration in the strangest places.

3 reasons why I love this commercial:
1. Zooey Deschanel's effortless vintage style. Those turquoise heels!!
2. Her lovely voice.
3. The unique decor: notice that stunning piano, that quirky powder blue chair, the framed bird print hanging above it (very etsy-esque).

(the video might take a few seconds to stream properly)

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

  15. Hey, great feature!

    I get ya, girl, I truly do! I'm obsessed with doors lately and I love the closet doors in the commercial!

  16. Do you think miss quirky independent film girl feels like she's selling out when she does these commercials and photo shoots? I do love the outfits, though. I always wish they would credit the outfits in the magazine shots.

  17. Oh my goodness. I love her. Tell me you have She & Him's CD. Please. It's amazing. (Have been reading for a little bit, but I usually lurk :) Zooey got me to come out of hiding...)

  18. @ lizziebeth: Agreed! She's so likeable and funny yet oh so stylish.

    @ downpillow: Hey no worries, we all have different musical preferences, right? Her voice is right up my alley, though.

    @ Oonafey: Is it selling out if it's cotton? Spandex maaaaybe..... Ha! I get what you're saying, though she's been in mainstream movies before (Yes Man, Failure to Launch, Bridge to Teribithia). Ok, now I sound like a defensive stalker fan.

  19. @ Jen: ::high-five:: I don't have She & Him though I do LOVE "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?" Have to admit I didn't at first but once it grew on me I can't get it outta my head!

  20. Aww. David loves her and I think she's cute and seems down to earth.

  21. I heart Zooey! I feel like this commercial is either a perfect picture of her as a real person or the persona she puts out. And her voice! When she sings in the movie "Elf" I die....

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love everything that has to do with Zooey, her home, her clothes. Love it all. I wish I had such an amazing sense of style.

  23. You post about Cotton commercials, I post about cats attacking unsuspecting news reporters and making them cry. It all makes the world go round.
