The "Jessa" Look: Inspiration

Ladies, can we seriously talk about the season finale of the HBO hit show, GIRLS? More specifically, can we discuss "Jessa's" wedding dress? The whole look for that matter?
I have been seriously enamored with the "Jessa" character since this show began airing. I want to wear every stitch the brilliant costumer, Jenn Rogien, has put on this beautiful girl.
If you're not a fan of this show, here's the look that took Jessa down the aisle. And I'd love to tell you where to buy it, but it's vintage--hooray! (I mean, look at those sleeves--and the shoes, the shoes)!!
While you can buy the Alexander McQueen heels with the skulls, the dress will be a little harder to come by. So here are some fabulous finds that will help you emulate this look. I can't wait to show you all my version, coming soon. In the meantime, create a "Jessa" look of your own with these options:
Anthropologie's Morning Story dress has the white cotton vibe down. You can grab it here.
Haute Hippie always nails it, especially with their Embellished Peasant Dress, which you can find at shopbob, here.
And here's BHLDN's version, the Persephone dress, available here.
Free People is carrying this Retro Sleeve Dress whose cutaways are gorg! You can nab it here.
And of course, there's ASOS, where you can grab this Peter Jensen, shift dress.
For more cottony goodness, here's a Rebecca Taylor shift available at Wasteland.

And to read more about how the "Jessa" look came about, check out this lovely interview with Jenn here.

With Love,

  1. oh my gosh, we canceled HBO, so i saw like the 1st 4 or 5 episodes of girls, but NOT this one! i didn't even know about this dress. it's freaking outstanding. i like the other ones you chose in this post too. now it looks like i have an interview i need to go check out.

  2. I'm OBSESSED with this show, and Jessa especially! I literally watched like 5 episodes in a row one day. Great post. LOVED her wedding look. xx
