The embroidery trend has been huge. Transitioning really well from Summer boho into rich Winter appropriate wear. What started out as a few threads on some denim has really took over the shops. This type of detail adds real interest to an outfit. Fitting in really well with the luxe fabrics and notions that A/W brings. The perfect go-to for the party season for those who are not into all the sparkle and jazz but still want something special. A fine example is a Look i put together here. Something i am fine to continue to do if pieces like that skirt stick around. This is trend that works for day too when you can embroider just about anything. As usual…

A couple of weeks back i put together a Look Of The Day post focusing around a velvet dress. I have been meaning to delve more into this trend ever since. The fact that i can incorporate it in a Fifty Friday post, well that is even better. Each look here consists of a piece of velvet in some description , put together as a whole outfit for under €50. Velvet is a perfect Winter fabric. Warm and cosy from the look to the touch. Like i said in that post , the one thing i do love about A/W fashion is how rich and luxurious the clothing is. Decedent prints and opulent fabrics, the whole feel is very regal . A really…

It’s that time again mmwaaaaha-ha-haaaaw. Halloween is just around the corner incase the incessant amount of bangers and fireworks haven’t given it away. Legit jumping out of my skin daily. So the big dilemma as always is – what to dress up as. I have put together some costume inspiration that you can grab easily from some of your favourite stores. A far cry from the throw a black bag over your head and you’re sorted days. Halloween Costumes I feel there are three types of girls on Halloween. 1- The Sexy / Slutty ANYTHING kind. Umm yeah Hun there is nothing sexier than a giant baby. Blokes love that. The 31st of October is just one giant excuse to wear as…

Penneys Hun – We’ve all said it. Doesn’t bare thinking about what we would do without our beloved Penney’s though. Primark , Preeemark , Pennaaaas , call it what you will , it’s bleedin’ deadly. Making fashion affordable since 1969. To think it all started on our little green isle all those years ago and today it’s taking over the world one store at a time. Forget Daniel O Donnell Penneys is our national treasure. Not many other places where you can get a whole outfit or update your home for under €50. Penneys for president lol.   As with every Fifty Friday, all looks come in or around the fifty euro mark for a full outfit. This weeks are all…

A sale buy is only really a bargain if you are going to actually get good wear or use from your purchase. Tempting as it is to go crazy when we see the word SALE , it can be a waste of money. Generally with sales, stores are getting rid of past season stock to make way for the new gear to arrive. Those kind of sales aren’t always the best. Now and again though a sale can come along and have a lot of really decent lines reduced. Lines that can still be worn and will be worn as the season changes. Just this week that happened. The infamous River Island sale dropped and as usual there was huge…
