Dana Weiss of Possessionista.com is InStyle.com’s correspondent on all things New Girl fashion for Season 3. Scroll down to read this week’s exclusive update on what Zooey Deschanel wore.

New Girl star Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel) spends her days working as a teacher, but the show’s costume designer Deb McGuire imagines that Jess spends her free time browsing secondhand stores. “This is one if the vintage dresses in the Jess collection,” McGuire told InStyle.com of the black and white print cityscape dress she wore on Tuesday night’s episode. “We must assume that she frequents the vintage stores on her daily jaunts, because she has many!” In real life it’s not Jess, but McGuire who amasses the vintage dresses for the New Girl’s elaborate collection. While the dress may be one of a kind, shop a similar option for $90 on modcloth.com.
