Because Birdie knows best.

Cougar Town's Busy Philipps made her directorial debut for an independent project — a new short comedy film for Ann Taylor Loft in which she and co-star Birdie Silverstein (who also happens to be Philipps' 7-year-old daughter) take on dressing for fall.

The short, released today, is the first of two films Philipps will create for the brand, which previously has collaborated with comedian Whitney Cummings and artist Chris Uphues on creative projects.
