Greetings from stunning Marrakech. I am currently a puddle of sweat and cocktails, living my best life as the cool kids say. Before i flew out i hit Penneys for some much needed essentials. I was kindly given vouchers to put together another Real Life Fifty Friday. This time a Summer Edition. What better place to do this than on holidays.       Penneys Summer 18     I had so much fun with the Spring edition which you can catch up on here. Being able to see the clothes on the body and brought to life rather than flat on a white background makes a nice change. You can see movement , a truer representation of colour and how fabric sits…

Every week my Da brings home the the offers mags from the supermarkets. I’m not even going to pretend that i don’t love this. I am a sucker for a bargain and i’m partial to browsing an aul supermarket. See evidence here. Last night while watching the football i was handed the offers for the coming week in Lidl. The fashion instantly caught my eye. After my mother took a quick look, what she saw was enough to make them both hop in the car there and then and head down to our nearest branch. My ma picked up 3 pieces from the Heidi Klum range for Marrakech and they are fab. My Mom isn’t a regular Mom , she’s…

As you know in the fashion world things always come full circle. Vintage is cool darling! With retro trends still reigning supreme and logos huge in fashion, it was only a…

Why hello there OPTW, haven’t seen you in awhile. It’s no secret that i have been struggling of late with content and getting it finished while it’s still relevant. I kind of explained here and i have been trying really hard since to execute my ideas properly and get shit did. It’s got better but i’m still not totally satisifed. I had a think about why i started blogging and the type of posts both you guys and i enjoyed. Why not take it right back to an old favourite One Piece Ten Ways. Not rocket science but i basically take one item and i style it ten completely different ways. I used to adore putting these posts together and challenging…

Cast your mind back to the cusp of Autumn / Winter 2013 – one boot ruled the runway and graced the feet of every fashionista going. Well a pair of boots actually, it wasn’t that kind of trend. The Balenciaga Ceinture Boots where everything. The style of these cut-out boots with statement buckles was a force to be reckoned with. Of course the high street and designers a like queued up to release their take on this “it” boot.   I myself bought New Look‘s offering. As affordable and close to this style as i could find. I was chuffed. I’d alwaya been a biker boots kind of girl but was absolutely loving the cut-out trend. They gave off the…
