She & Him & Me

So it's a long way off, but I feel my outfit planning for the She & Him gig at Koko should begin now. Sure it's not until the 7th May, but when you're up against the gorgeous lead singer Zooey Deschanel, it's going to take about 2 weeks just to pick out the right bow for my hair!
For those of you that aren't familiar with the dreamy, gorgeous-ness that is She & Him, they're a folksie, indie Americana band made up of She (Indie romcom, 500 days of Summer etc..., actress and new face of Rimmel Cosmetics, Zooey Deschanel) and Him (hip musician/guitarist Matt Ward). They make the kind of music that makes it feel like summer and that you should be skipping down a country lane with a picnic basket wearing a bow in your hair and a petticoat (just me?), Zooey has a dreamy 50s musical/60s doo wop kind of sound and makes the saddest song sound warm and fuzzy. But why read about me explaining it - go have a listen and make your own mind up!
Now, back to the serious business of what to wear! Not only is Zooey an actress, singer/songwriter, but she's also a style icon with her laid back nod-to-retro wardrobe and style. From the thick blunt fringe, to the bows in her hair, to her to die for collection of 50s and 60s style dresses, she manages girlie without looking like a extra from Grease. Here are my outfit ideas so far, Volume One, other suggestions are very welcome!
