I probably could have come up with a slightly better post title..! Haha! But it was the first thing that came in to my head.

So, a few days a go I only went and got myself a fringe cut in. (You geddit? Bangs is American for 'fringe'! Oh the humour you get on Laddered Tights!)
Now, I've had the same hairstyle for practically my whole life. We are ignore the time when I was around 9 and got a short bob. I have really bad head sore so I don't ever tie my hair up or even brush it all that often. I also have the dreaded cowlick on each side of my head. They used to be really quite bad but I've somehow managed to tame them a little over the last couple of years.
I came home the other day and started playing with my hair and just decided I wanted a fringe and then I realised that it would probably be difficult with said cowlick. I googled for a long time and the next day I ask my hairdressers opinion and she told me to wash my hair just before I left the house and she'd be able to see how it'd go.

Lucky for me, it has been a success!

I'm really please with how it turned out. I'm still at the stage where I keep combing it and constantly checking it looks okay and is sitting right. It just feels so strange having something on my forehead all the time.

Thought I may as well give you a little outfit post whilst the camera was out. I think today's look is very "sleek, chic goth".
I couldn't for the life of my get a decent photo of the collar detail but you can see if better on the photo above.

I love this shirt so much. I got it at the weekend when I took a trip down to Birmingham. I think it was £18.75 so pretty decent! Been after a plain black shirt with a collar that wasn't sheer for so long. Would have preferred no collar detailing really but I couldn't find any other and they look easy enough to remove if I get bored of them.
The belt was on my wishlist post that you can see here. It goes with practically everything I own so definitely worth the money.

I've been off work for the last week so I've been able to watch a lot of London Fashion Week live streams which has been fun. Not as much fun as actually being there, I guess. But alas! There will most likely be a post on Wednesday (hopefully) of my favourite collections. I've already got a decent sized list that I'm trying to whittle down.


  1. Yaaaay :) You really do suit having a fringe!

  2. I love your new hairstyle and the all-black outfit with the golden accents :)
