Fashion independent day & Supporting our local Boutiques
Happy Tuesday, with Fashion Independant day just gone, It was last Thursday and it created such a buzz, well done to all involved, I thought this post was appropriate.
For those of you not familiar with it, its a day organised by the Frockadvisor duo, Brendan Courtney and Sonya Lennon (if you are not on their app go sign up!! Its fantastic), which celebrates all the wonderful local Irish fashion boutiques, and everything they offer.
Its becoming an annual celebratory date, Fashion Independent day is, and its where people are asked to get out and support local businesses. It encourages you to pop into your local fashion boutiques and see whats on offer, meet the people behind the stores and delve into their fashion secrets and knowledge, The owners are a mindful of information and the most helpful when it comes to fashion!
I’m a true believer in trying to shop local as much as possible and support our Irish boutiques, they have beautiful pieces to match everyone’s budget so don’t be afraid to pop in for fear you cant afford something, and its always nice to have a browse. (and as you know I’m good at browsing!!)
So a few weeks back I collaborated with the lovely Eimear from The Two Darlings
and Vanilla Boutique, Fermoy , this Irish Boutique is amazing and the two ladies Joy and Kate work hard in bringing unique pieces to their store, It is truly a little gem of a boutique and I love to visit,
The girls are so helpful and friendly and you could literally spend hours trying clothes on, or if you’re unsure they are genius at recommending the right outfit for any occassion!
They stock everything from Casual to occasional wear and if its something different you are looking for Vanilla boutique will tick all your boxes.

Vanilla Boutique is one example of what our fabulous Irish Boutiques have to offer, there is plenty more gorgeous stores around Ireland, that are bringing some beautiful pieces to us Irish Girls, so don’t be shy girls go into your local stores and find yourselves some gems that will last you a lifetime!
