A hangdog confession

Forgive me friends & frockers for I have sinned, it has been many days since I last made a beep in the blogosphere.  
I accuse myself of the following sins, stalking your blogs without commenting & admiring your fabulousness from afar without giving credit where credit has so blatantly been due.
I have also made my own blog into a drought zone but rest assured my dearest blog sisters I aim to redeem myself within the coming weeks.
It is my intention to post much more regularly from now on and this will be a much easier task come Friday when I free myself from the shackles of the old nine to five.
Yes it’s true, I’m giving up the day job to have another bash at making FROCKTASIA my livelihood.
This time I have a much better mindset and I’m going to work my ass off to get it off the ground.
The FROCKTASIA on-line shop is already up and running but I am still adding stock & tweaking stuff.
Mark and I shot a ‘lookbook’ for the shop a few weeks ago and here are the resulting pics… 
I'm doing all the modelling for the shop myself at the moment but I am hoping to work with other people in the future cause as much as I love pretending to be Jessica Stam (in my dreams), I'd actually much rather crack on with the styling malarkey.
So it's all excitement, adventure and really wild things for the Jen monster at the moment and come Friday evening I'll be doing summersaults all the way back home from the wage slave labour camp.
Only three more days of  working for the man, huzzah, I'm almost wetting myself  in excitement :)
If you want to keep in touch with what's going on in the shop then why not head over and LIKE my new Facebook page, that would really
Hope you are all doin' grand my dears!
Lot's of love,

Highland Games

It's raining, it's raining,
There's pepper in the box,
And all the little ladies
Are holding up their frocks.
Hubby and I went for a wee stroll in the park in-between downpours yesterday and staged an impromptu game of good old Highland caber tossing :)
What I Wore:
FROCKTASIA revamped denim shorts
90s Alien clubbing top with grey cami underneath
Miss Selfridge tights
Steve Madden kick-ass boots
Crochet knit beanie
Turkoman bag
80s sunnies
An assortment of bangles
Caber tossing action, hai-yah...
I'm hoping to revamp some more of these funky cut-offs in the near future. 
I've got a whole stash of hubbies old jeans, a mega lot of Dylon that I scored on eBay a couple of years ago and more decorative buttons and embellishments than you can shake a stick at ;)
I've also got a rather fabulous book about different tie-dye techniques that I'd like to try out.
When I made these two pairs a couple of weeks ago I just winged it with a whole bunch of rubber-bands.
I still think they turned out really cool though...
Last but by no means least here's some caber tossing action by my beloved hubster...
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend :)
Lot's of love,
