Fifty Friday | Embroidered

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…

Inis Giveaway

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…

Fifty Friday | Velvet

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…

Fake It Till You Make It? The Dangers Of Fake Make-Up

I originally started this post last year as it was something that i was seeing more and more of. For one reason or another , i won’t bore a sister with those deets , i never pressed published.
