Zip it.

I'm definately into zips at the moment, especially chunky exposed ones. They're popping up on blogs and catwalks all over the place at the moment and I'm hoping a fair few will make their way into my wardrobe this autumn.

There are some zippy goodies going on eBay* and asos.com too.

I've tried on a couple of exposed zip items whilst shopping, including a Zara dress and this top from Dorothy Perkins, but both were really ill-fitting on me (and possibly everyone else judging by how quickly the Dotty P's top has gone on sale.) So I guess it's down to a diy now. A simple vest with a zip down the middle would be great, but I'm also imagining zipped up tartan and ruffles. Not together of course. Or maybe...

*especially at Treasure Chest Vintage. It seems Rumi has a bit of a thing for zips too.
