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 boohoo.com'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
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
