ZIGGY PUGDUST.

Apparently I am completely won over by any animal print item of clothing (hello Kitty and Katnis) but if you add a music reference in there I really can’t resist. I saw this "Ziggy Pugdust” tee by Nicky Rockets months ago and told myself it would be a present for handing in my next assignment (you have to justify these things as a student) and I actually handed in my essay early so I could buy it at the Curvy Convention.

I usually wear this tucked into my high waisted jeans (it’s basically the perfect rockabilly tee) but I think it looks equally great with my Pin Up Girl Clothing leopard print skirt and red Dr Martens.

Skirt: Pin Up Girl Clothing (similar here)
Belt: New Look
Boots: Dr Martens
Petticoat: Hell Bunny
Headband: Thrifted

It’s a real sign to the quality of these tees as in how well it have lasted-I’ve worn it at least 20 times since buying it at the Curvy Convention and it’s still soft, thick and the print is perfect. I’m so glad I took the plunge and bought this is a ladies fit (XL if you’re wondering) for the perfect curves rather than the men’s fit of my “Curvy as Hell” tee. It is the perfect close fit plus the length actually reaches my thighs which is ideal.



I've once again changed my hair- if you couldn't tell. The dip dye is back (breaking my “no repeat haircut” rule) and a Bettie Page fringe that took literally an hour to cut in.   My fringe next to never sits perfectly but makes a big difference when I tie it up for work. On the down side I now need to buy shares in dry shampoo and I can’t seem to keep my finger away from it. Its also a firm favourite with the wind and wouldn't sit still for these photos!

P.S. I am aware that the David Bowie inspiration is actually Aladdin Zane- but Ziggy Stardust provides a FAR better pug pun.

STRAW HATS & ALLY CATS.






Dress c/o Voodoo Vixen (similar here and here)
Cardigan c/o Voodoo Vixen (similar here)
Petticoat: Hell Bunny (similar here)
Bag: Vintage
Brooch: Ella Mobbs
Hat:Vintage

Summer is coming and everything is getting warmer- so its time to brake out my straw accessories. With the summer approaching I'm risking the lack of rain and bringing out my most delicate vintage wears. I'm becoming a big fan of vintage fairs and increasing my true vintage wardrobe so this hat was a welcome addition to my life and my new (old) straw hat to cream tea with Chris was the perfect day out.

Paired with the Voodoo Vixen Ally Cat dress and Peggy Sue cardigan makes the perfect outfit. I was won over by this dresses name not 100% sure of this print now I can honestly say  I LOVE bowling prints!! I only wish I wore this outfit with my bowling shoes father than pumps for the ultimate look.

In terms of fit this dress is again different from my previous Voodoo Vixen dresses. They're cut similar to the Kitty dress but the shoulders are a little wider so makes this dress perfect all year round.

Fingers crossed it wont be so long for my next post- I am having an awful time with my Internet connection at present so when I can get online I am choosing to do Uni work.
