Is the name of Zooey Deschanel's character in the film Almost Famous. I spotted this playsuit in Topshop yesterday (some of y'all may have seen my tweets) and for some reason it made me think of her instantly. I think that old, soft coloured dressing style of whenever the film was set (70s me thinks) and I loved the way this item was just so unique. I put it on and for the first time I think ever, Del said "wow". I think 1. he was tired, and 2. it's just so different from the stuff I usually wear. Anyway I love popping it on and pretending i'm Zooey Deschanel...

Playsuit - Topshop £36

There has been a possibility recently that we may actually get a sun holiday this summer, and what with all the sun shining this week I think it just persuaded me to buy it. I can see it with beach wave hair, a big floppy straw hat and some sandals...obviously not on me then! I'm in love and I cannot wait to wear it some more.

The odd thing that I didn't notice until I tried it on is this kinda cut-out detailing at the back of the playsuit:

At first I was like 'oh...not sure' but now I really like it on. Adds another dimension of detail and just looks mega cute with the floral style. I'm really not a big floral person at all, I'd go as far as saying I don't 'get' that whole trend, but this just looked so different to me. It's more traditional floral, like your nanas old curtains, rather than that in your face brash modern floral you see all over the high street.
I've been watching a lot of vintage tv lately, and listening to old music. At the minute, I love Dolly Parton, and I think my fashion is going backwards as i'm starting to wear more and more 50s/60s style clothing. Next time i'm home i'm gonna root through the loft and see what I can find!

I went for soft makeup, i'm wearing MAC Face and Body, Topshop Blush in Flush, Illamasqua pigment in Delirium, Maxfactor eyeliner and MAC Opulash. My lipstick is MAC Snob. Hardly any make up, really! I love the fresh, bright look.

What do you think of playsuits? Am I going fashion mental (next i'll be in rockabilly dresses with polkadots on...honestly i've bought one) or am I making fashion sense? Or does it not matter? I always have such issues trying to fit my 'style' blog in with other style blogs. Dang it! How are we embracing the playsuit this summer?
Lots of love, Zozo xxx

    I've got a couple of playsuits. My fave is the infamous Kate Moss nude one, where she wore it back to front. xo

  6. I'd so get that if playsuits looked nice on me and if I didn't hate floral...

  10. I think its so pretty, and has a real vintage feel about it too!
    I adore playsuits, love the thought of them & they look amazing on, every one except me!! I look awful in all the ones I've tried on- baggy boobs, big hips- just a no go, this does make me sad!

  15. I love this on you, looks like it fits like a glove! I like playsuits, actually, but I have accepted that they just don't suit me. I have a big bum, and they do nothing for it. But you definitely don't have that problem - looks lovely. I think, just wear what you like - you have natural style, don't worry about being trendy! I certainly don't. :)
