Character Style Inspiration: Zoe Hart (Part 6)

It's that time of year again when all my favourite US TV shows are back with their new seasons and that means I can start bringing you regular Zoe Hart style posts again! Hart of Dixie season 2 premiered a few weeks ago and these are just a couple of looks from the episodes so far. For this instalment I've put together two designer vs. high street looks, I hope you like them.

Images of Rachel Bilson from the official CW Hart of Dixie website.
This Vanessa Bruno dress is so unique that it proved rather difficult to find a similar style on the high street. Although the £242 price tag still makes this dress an expensive purchase its actually part of a 50% off deal at! In the end I decided the best way to replicate this look would be to find a high street dress which both resembled the simple shape and mix of colours and prints. This shift dress from New Look fits the description fairly well and also has some on trend studding detail. Like the Vanessa Bruno piece it is also currently on sale only it is priced at just £11. The New Bond Street Ettie by Kate Spade is the exact same one that Rachel carried on the show but will set you back over £100. Again, the geometric clasp detail is the kind of unique detailing that is hard to find on the high street, so instead I found this yellow satchel bag from Matalan which at £8 could easily be customised by adding a chain strap and some studs.
This second outfit is a great example of Zoe's everyday style where a casual outfit or simple piece like this Sandro Paris dress is dressed up with a pair of heels. I believe this is the same dress and shoes Rachel wore on the show and to replicate the outfit exactly, even with the dress being on sale, will set you back £320. For my high street picks I found this dress from Mango which I can definitely see Zoe wearing herself. I have to say I much prefer the original dress, the zip detailing and cinched waist make it stand out however the Mango piece does also have a small bow detailing on the back of the collar. These Topshop Stunner Heels have a similar buckle detailing and open toe style to Rachel's Sergio Rossi Two-Piece Sandals but again, I prefer the designer version!
