I can’t be the only one still obsessing over 500 Days Of Summer fashion! Can I? …

Cynthia: Okay so I know it’s been 7 years since 500 Days Of Summer was released into indie movie theaters around the globe and we all became obsessed with Summer Finn’s wardrobe but –
Marcy: Seven years, Cindy.
Marcy: Seven years.
Cynthia: I know. I know. It was a looooong time ago. But I realized that for the past seven years I have been trying to acquire Summer Finn’s wardrobe. I am constantly on the lookout for that ’70’s style aline denim skirt.
The blue sundress from the record store scene.
And, of course, her beautiful gauzy pale blue dress from the wedding scene.
Cynthia: And I suddenly realized that I’ve been looking for these items because – all of a sudden – I’m seeing them in stores!
Cynthia: Seriously! Check these out!
Cynthia: Could it be that the 2016 is the year I finally get to dress like the character in the best non-romantic romantic comedy of all time?
Marcy: Probably not. I take it you haven’t looked at the prices on some of the Summer-like clothing.
Cynthia checks the prices.
Cynthia: Oh. Hmmm. Well, you know… maybe these styles will be so popular that the lower end retailers will make similar Summer-like clothing and we can afford in 2017!
Marcy: Summer in ’17?
Some similar Summer fashion! 🙂
I don’t remember that movie. Looks like I’ll have to find it. Those clothes are really cute, it would be great if they were affordable! Maybe you can get smaller versions and dress up Marcy. You could do a whole cat reboot of the movie!
It’s a great movie! Rent it immediately!
Great clothes! Considering Marcy’s costume expertise and your marketing and styling skills, why not start your own fashion line.

This is a great idea!!
Ooohhhh… I like this idea, too!
Looks like I’ve fooled everyone into thinking I know more than I do about fashion. Hey – where are all the knee-length wrap skirts anyway? Maybe I’ll start there?
I have never seen the movie. Yes, the recent versions of the clothes are sure cute and expensive. When you could do the costuming for the productions that you’ve been in charge of, have you ever found any clothes like this in the vintage/consignment stores?
You know, I’m usually so crazed and short for time when I’m doing costumes for a show that my focus is only on what I need to get for each character. I’m also not an enthusiastic vintage shopper. I get kind of weirded out by used clothing and I really hate the smell at most resale shops. I have friends who love to shop resale/vintage and come away with some great finds but I’ve found that it is just not my thing.
Before I even scrolled to the product photos, I was like, “Ooooooh yes! I have been seeing these styles around!” And it looks like you’ve rounded up some great ones. The a-line denim midis are really making a comeback. I had one in high school that I wore all the time. It was an amazing find from PacSun of all places. Ooooh PacSun. So many Roxy turtle hoodies and Billabong surfboard tees. Because I was such a surfer girl in small-town, cornfield-covered Michigan.
I also romanticize different characters and their styles. I’ll forever love Barbara Streisand’s Fanny Brice in Funny Girl. I can’t say those costumes are very practical for anyone other than a Zeigfeld girl though… I guess I know my next profession then!
Ahhhh… love aline denim midis! Seriously – can a denim midi wrap skirt be that difficult to make? I wonder if I could find a seamstress to do one. Or find a pattern for a wrap skirt. That shouldn’t be too difficult. I may try this!
You could totally be a Ziegfield girl!
