I finished my challenge! This blog reached its end  ♪ little song of victory

During the time I was involved in this project, I learned a lot about style, home design, crafts, research, online shopping and improvised solutions! There were 25 looks from the film, and several posts about home design. I can say that my wardrobe and my apartment became more beautiful after that, but I think the biggest transformation - attention to the cliche! - happened on myself.

My hobby has always been drawing, but since I started working with it, I was a bit saturated about the subject. By the end of the day, instead of using my energy to draw, I was just browsing the internet. Meaning, nothing productive! I got to be depressed about it, but since I started this project, I felt the creative blood running through my veins again. It was a therapy!

Summer has a very vintage and girlie style, but it is not one of those poor girls, who weeps on the corners, waiting for Prince Charming. She knows what she wants. This only reinforced my view that being cute and feminine does not mean being weak. I identified with her! Today I know that, no matter if I'm using a fit-and-flare dress or an worn jeans, I have the Girl Power! ✿

Taking the opportunity to thank all my friends, family and professionals who helped me in some way to fulfill my wacky project! Thanks to Ricbit, my husband, who in addition to translate the posts to English, accompanied me to Los Angeles, visiting all the locations from the movies; to my mother, who helped me make the day of the dress 87; to the dressmaker Dona Rosa who made the clothes from day 403 and 8; to the Restaura Jeans girls, who adjusted sooooo many clothes; to the barista from Redwood Grill & Bar, for letting me sing like the Summer; to all craft shops trying to understand my crazy requests "I want to make a tree from wires"; to all the girls who sold their used clothes to thrift stores!

Of course, I also thank the actress Zooey Deschanel, costume designer Hope Hanafin, the interior designer Jennifer Lukehart and the art director Laura Fox; thanks to their great work in this movie, which was able to inspire and amuse me so much!

Well, I can say that I reached my 500th day with Summer feeling ready for Autumn (which is my favorite season, by the way). I hope that somehow my site is also useful for someone! ❤

Trivia about the Project

When I started the project, in the first few photos I took, I put the camera in movie recording mode to make various poses, and then just captured the frames that interested me. The problem is that it always had one (or two, three, four) cats messing the recording while I was filming! I have 4 cats: Vinil, Miucho, Rabisco and Luvinha. The cat that appears more in the video is Rabisco, which at the time had undergone an eye surgery and was using the cone of shame (he's cured now).

P.S - Some of these looks have been replaced by better version. I even redid all the photos at the end of the project. But it's worth it since it's so funny. hehe


Here's some trivia about the clothes!

The first outfit I bought was the bus scene dress (in July 2013)
The last I bought was the bag of day 488.
The most expensive clothing was the dress from day 403.
The cheapest clothing was from the day 109.
The coolest clothing is from the bike scene.
The warmest clothing is from the day 290.
The hardest to find was the from day 31.
The easiest to find was from day 259.

And to those who ware curious, here's my wardrobe with all the project clothes! Looking at it this way it doesn't seem much, right?

And before we go for the last blog post, another bonus!

These is the outfit she wears in some versions of DVD. She's sideways, it's hard to see very well. A short, black, high waist, in sailor style, and the same blouse she wears at the office party.

The blouse I made with a seamstress.

This is the dress she uses the bus scene, early in the movie. The scene is black and white, and I could not find a color photo. I think the clothes are in this color, hehe. If you pay close attention you can see at a glance that she uses a vintage purse with pearls!

 The dress I bought at Modcloth. It has a cute neckline and back.
