I was both shocked and thrilled to be a finalist in the V By Very Irish Blog Awards for the second year in a row. I’ll try not to bore ye with my ramblings again but if you fancy it you can read last years post here. How was that a year alread?     As a finalist in the fashion category i was dressed by the award sponsors and my faves Littlewoods Ireland. Head to toe in V By Very. As always the choice was nearly too much that i struggled. The theme of the awards night was Movie Icons so i decided to go in the Hollywood Glamour direction. I chose this red prom dress with lace detailing. The dress…

It’s not uncommon for the powerhouse that is Penneys to bring out such statement pieces. They just keep setting them up and knocking them out of the park. With these eye catching pieces comes mass hysteria. You just have to have them and sure they are so affordable why wouldn’t you. Yes that is true but i also have a wardrobe full of  ‘dirt cheap’ shoes that i never actually wore. With this pair i wanted to look at ways these embroidered heels can be worn so you can actually get the wear from your purchase.   Embroidered Heels The shoe itself looks quite expensive. It has a great shape to it that will suit the foot well. The platform…

  I love shopping, i think that goes without saying, but i’m not into actually going into the shops all that much. I am however a massive fan of online shopping. I know you can’t get a proper feel of fabric or fit through a screen but there are a lot of other benefits.

Quite often fashion posts consist of really dressy pieces and outfits worthy of a night on the tiles. Occasion looks seem to take centre stage. I get it I do, i’m as guilty as charged. These events require a little something special. Dressing up is really fun and a chance for us to experiment and wear some pieces we wouldn’t normally get a chance to.

Be it for work, the school run or college, we all need to…

This weeks WTF offer from New Look is a very Autumnal piece in the style of a tartan bardot top complete with peplum. An absolute bargain at only at €9.99. Tartan and check prints are always big business for Autumn Winter but i think that this shape on this top is very modern. Lots of volume in the sleeves and finished with a pretty peplum hemline. A little bargain to start the dreaded season trasition.     I’ve styled it here 3 different ways. A transitional, cool night look, an easy no fuss oufit and a day to day look. The only thing that sprung to mind was that a slim bottom is needed to keep proportions right with such…
