Typically two piece trouser suits have been synonymous with menswear,  work or a day in court. Towards the end of last year as Autumn / Winter took hold and statement suits were paving a way for themselves. We had started to see celebrities take risks on the red carpet by ditching the dress in favour of a more androgynous look. A real statement in such an understated and effortless way. More and more offerings crept into the shops making this trend really accessible.   Tailoring and more importantly suits don’t have to be boring. It really comes down to the styling with this one. For those brave enough, for a night out, i think that bralets , lace camis and…

Last summer i did something that i never thought i would see myself doing. I shared some snaps of myself in my swimmers for the world to see. It wasn’t anything that ever crossed my mind really. For the most part i am confident in the body i’ve been given. I have to be because it’s the only one i have. I own it …. both physically and litterally. Of course there are parts of me, like my arms for example. I feel more confident when they are covered and same goes for my belly. That is just simple style choices that can go a long way.   Eff Your Beauty Standards   It is plain to see that i…

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are not too confused about day it even is. It’s that time though when you wake from the 3 day food coma to the realisation that you have nothing to wear for New Years Eve. I thought a little Fifty Friday was in order (it’s Friday BTW) with a collection of last minute New Years Eve Looks for under fifty Euro. Simple as that i suppose. How it’s here already i will never know. It also only feels like yesterday since i styled my first issue of In Tallaght Magazine, a New Years Eve Shoot. Time is on fast forward i tell ya. Something dawned on me though on Stephenses night…

I’ve been doing that thing where you think it’s WAY too early to be dropping C-bombs all over the gaff then all of a sudden it’s December and you’re like sh1t when did that happen! People are already going on their Christmas parties and doing other miscellaneous festive things. Best get my pancake rear-end into gear and get cracking on the 12 pubs get-up. A night where Christmas jumpers are mandatory. No need to sacrifice style though, i mean unless that’s what you are going for then hey no judgement here.   Christmas Jumpers   Christmas jumpers are big business, getting bigger by the year in fact. Merry , fun , warm and mostly a bit hilarious. The choice has…

Woman’s not hot… both literally and physically. Today was my first day leaving the house in a week and that required lots of layers but not much thought. I quickly decided on wearing the same red jumper denim shirt combo that i wore this day last week. See i said no thought. I went for a different pair of jeans though as i wanted to wear my tan chelsea boots and these jeans sit on them the best i feel. The fluffy warmth was tonal of the boots which worked out well. Nothing new really here except the H&M bag which i had to have from the moment i saw it, infact i posted about it here. The jumper is…

Here we are lads, December. When did that happen? And don’t say today you smart alics , it was a retorical question. Check me out with me big words lol. So yes back to business. The ever popular Fifty Friday has been on the missing list as of late. I want to rectify that.   I am slowly giving in to the fact that summer is over but i am not quite ready to give up on all my favourite seasonal pieces just yet. However time is moving and needs must as it is the coldest Winter in five years – Fact! With Christmas fastly aproaching money gets really tight so i thought this weeks edition calls for some affordable…

This now infamous day was once only something our neighbours across the Atlantic went wild for. Black Friday takes place every year on the day after Thanksgiving. A day where stores put on discounts or special offers. I learnt of the phenomenon through my addiction to good-bad TV. Extreme Couponing showed folk sleeping out in the cold to be first in line when the stores opened. There was actual stampedes and serious tactics used all to bag a good deal. In the past few years, the craze arrived on our shores. After seeing how much of a success it was more and more stores began getting involved. Black Friday now goes on ’til Tuesday with the inclusion of ‘Cyber Monday’.…

Some New Season Newness From H&M To Make A Little Start To My Winter Wardrobe. A Handy Little Winter Floral Dress In a Rich Burgundy Background. In A Winter Colour Palette Without All The Heaviness. Easy To Wear And Add Into Rotation To Transition Through The Seasons.   Dress / Tunic €14.99 Size 8-20   This Dress Was More Like A Tunic On Me If Im Honest. Probably Better For The Season That Is In It Though. I’d Wear It Over Jeans Or A White/Cream Trouser. H&M Hem Lengths Aren’t The Longest And I’m Not That Tall So I Usually Get Away With Them Fine. This One Was A Bit On The Snug Side Across The Chest And Upper Arms…

That is some serious stormy weather out there. A night for the winter woolies. H&M have a great offer on these shaggy faux fur jackets at the moment. Only €27.99 right now. That’s a very good price for a faux fur or a good winter jacket  anyways but considering these types of styles don’t date at all so the cost per wear is practically free. It just looks so snuggly.     The cream colour-way shown above would look so good styled with burnt oranges, mustard tones and tan boots. Very Autumnal shades. The cream is a lighter, less harsh colour option than the black. Harder to keep clean yes but different.   It’s been a minute since i posted…

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…
