So I was doing a google search on Zooey Deschanel…she sings?!!! Did you know that? She’s actually really good. She has a very raw quality to her voice and a very retro without being trendy retro feel. I love it! I know she sang a little bit in Elf with Will Ferrell. So go check out her myspace HERE. Now, as far as the blue coat…I know everyone is STILL looking for it…HERE is a really cool jacket that could easily have some red piping put on it. THIS is also a nice alternative. What I think you have to remember is that in a situation like this where you are looking for a coat that they used in a movie is that you have too look for the essense of. Chances are you are NOT going to find the exact coat. So you have a couple of options. You can buy a coat that seems similar, then take it to a seamstress (your local dry cleaners would be a good place to ask for a contact), show them a pic of the coat you want and ask them what you need to buy to get it to look like that and ask them if they could make it for you. Most of the time it’s just about switching out buttons and in this case adding some red trim. Your other option is to look for the essense of the coat. It’s kind of like a sister…you may not be identical but you are very similar. Like for the coat in Yes Man I would look for a blue coat that is knee length, double breasted, with two pockets on the knee. It is a VERY simple coat to make. It really is ALL about adding the red piping!!! SO EASY!!!! I promise this is your best option. NOW…there is a new FANTASTIC show on Showtime…well I haven’t actually seen it but I just know it’s going to be fabulous. It’s called the “United States of Tara” and stars Toni Collette. It’s about a mom with multiple personalities. It’s going to be FUNNNNNNY!!! So, go listent to Zooey’s music, go buy a coat that looks like hers and go watch “United States of Tara”! But most of all…REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!
