She & Him

Though I heard of them a long while ago, it took me until today to actually give She & Him a listen. She, "quirky" actress Zooey Deschanel, and him, established musician M. Ward, make a charming duo. I love how Zooey's voice reintroduces some classic American 1950s & 60s tunes to my generation, who probably recognize these songs but wouldn't really listen to the originals. Indulge below with She & Him's take on the following 1957 classic:

In all these videos of them I've watched, Zooey is always wearing the cutest 1960s style dresses. I think she would look great in this little tent dress I recently listed in my shop.

And while we're on the topic of music, you should check out both UK-based Paperplain and Brooklyn residents School of Seven Bells. Paperplain is lo fi beauty exemplified, and School of Seven Bells supposedly takes their name from a legendary pick pocket school in South America.

it took me a little while to listen to she & him too. I agree, their songs are quite charming. And, I have long envied Zooey's style!

Oh, I've finally put up my 'six random things' post. Thanks for tagging me!
