May The Strings Make You Smile, May They Always Remind You Of Me, For Now Let's Pretend, I'm Holding Your Hand...

So this is probably the last post i'm gonna do from my loft. I will definitely miss this bedroom!!
Anyway, I can only apologise for my krustier than krusty beige Primarni pumps. They're really dragging down the outfit I know, but all my other shoes are in the new house so don't judge...

Don't know where I pulled this lady of leisure pose out from, hahaha...

I know i'm not one for taking photos in mirrors but you really need to see the sheer skirt with me standing up, it looks so much better. The main thing I like about sheers is how you can see the outline of your body through the material...

  • T-Shirt- Camden Market
  • High waisted sheer maxi skirt- Primark and DIY
  • High waisted knickers- American Apparel

And now for some randomly stuck on self-portrait stuff I took on the same day...

So what d'you think?? Anyone else working the maxi trend right now... Have any of my England based readers been brave enough to wear sheers through what has been a mostly rainy Summer?? lol
Right, i'm going to redeem my voucher now and order that long, black sheer shirt (click here to see my last blog post the shirt is the 5th pic down) Yeahhhh.

Toodles to you bitches xx

Boohoo, That's Why I'm Crying For You, Someday You'll Feel Like I Do And You'll Be Boo-hoo-hooin' Too!!...

Hello chika's, sexy bitch's, hun's, lovely's and everything else I call you lot....

It's been a very busy week, but in between job hunting, working and moving into a new house, I popped down to the launch of's new Autumn/Winter collection. Besides making the most of the free champs, delicious scones (seriously, I don't even like scones but these were amazing), chats with lovely fellow bloggers and the boohoo team... AND the complimentary boohoo voucher we received in our goody bags (I literally squealed with excitement very loudly in a fashion that can only be described as ghetto *smh*), we also had a good look through the collection and there are some very tasty pieces.

I'm a big boohoo fan anyway- we all know affordable fashion is my thing. But I have to say there's a more sophisticated edge to this new stuff- a vintage current runs through it- think '40s blouses, '60s tunics and tailoring, '70s brights and maxi's. As well as all the on trend things you'd expect- floaty palazzo pants, lots of sheers, lots of colour, big knits, pretty florals, luxe faux furrrrrrrr, barbour jackets etc. But enough of my jibber jabber, i've whittled my many, many, many pics down to these favourites...

Classic barbour jackets


Loveeeeeeee this, definitely on my shopping list!!...

Cute embellished shirt

Pretty '40s inspired floral blouse

a baby blue?? little '40s number

Also gotta buy this semi-transparent metallic jumper

Gorgeous pleated palazzo's 

Getting cold??...

Tasty treats

I HATE this pic but it's the only one of me and my friend at the event so...

What d'you think?? Any favourite pieces??... I love a few things but the long sheer black shirt looks so versatile, got to get that soon as they put it on the website!!!!

This event has confirmed three things to me-
1) I must work in fashion in some capacity. An office job just wont do.
2) I NEED a good camera. Preferably a canon. More likely another Panasonic Lumix.
3) My brokeass needs some new clothes or i'm gonna have to change the name of this blog to either Zizzi's Empty Wardrobe or Zizzi's Worn Out Wardrobe. I'm definitely buying that long black blouse with my voucher!!

Right, i'm gonna be a little boohoo groupie now and put on my free t-shirt, make the hot chocolate I got in my goodie bag and go to bed.

Toodles to you bitches xx

On The Seventh Day I Rest For A Minute Or Two Then Back On My Feet And Cry For You...

Oh boy, why is it always the worst pics of me that get reblogged on tumblr?!?!? *Sigh* There are some awful ones on there but I guess that's my fault for posting them on my not-so-secret wardrobe!!

Lots of new skanks in my army, thanks in large part to the wonderful reblogging me. You've probably seen her blog before... If you're a fan like me you check it every time it pops into your head as they'll undoubtedly be some gorgeous new post (it's updated regularly), but if you haven't heard of it yet get over there immediately for some seriously brilliant blogging!! <3

Low light conditions kinda effed up these photos but here they are anyway... Somehow managed to get my braids even longer this time!!...

  • T-shirt- Cow
  • Bra top- American Apparel
  • Shorts- Beyond Retro
In half an hour i'm gonna watch No Country For Old Men on TV and finally start going through everyone's blogs!!

Hope you all had the best weekends of your lives, unlikely as that is statistically.
Toodles to you bitches xx

Off With Your Head, Dance Till You're Dead...

I've been really crap with this blog business recently, keep doing these evening shifts at work and when I get home I just want to lie down and never get up. During this process i've been missing a lot of my favourite blogs but i've vowed to change that and will start sifting through you all tomorrow so don't give up on leaving your blog links!!!

Anyway, after a short rest from braids I was getting ready to start braiding my hair up again, just as I was about to open the first bag of hair it occurred to me that some of you will be curious to know what my real hair is looking like right now, another chapter of my 'Hairytale' as Lasophia put it, ha!

So here it is, my 50% frohawk...
Forgot about top...

...then remembered 'modesty' and whipped one on

If I can repeat this rate of growth next year i'll be so happy!!

And for those of you who keep asking me what hair I use to do my braids, even though i've told you guys a million times :p here it is...

Go buy some and get braiding!!!
Toodles to you bitches xx
