We even spotted the leading lady flaunting her collection for Tommy Hilfiger—almost every piece, in fact—during last season's finale back in May. While the new season has just started, we're already noticing the actress' own wardrobe items making an appearance in her fictional closet.

The star even styled the dress the same, selecting black pointed-toe heels on screen and off. Still, she was a little fancier for the show, leaving her curly locks down and accessorizing with a classic quilted pouch—which, considering Jess' purse collection, we can only assume is a vintage Chanel

Although the primetime genre doesn't quite align, The Limited offers a similar sheath ($128) from its Scandal-inspired collection, while ASOS boasts a comparable colorblock frock ($66) for half the cost. 

Tune in to New Girl tonight at 9pm PST on FOX to see if you can spot any more repeats from Deschanel's real-life wardrobe.
