So last weekend I had the pleasure of collaborating with Miss Daisy blue (all thanks to Emer @Irishfashaholic)

I have always loved potttering around this boutique as its the most unique quirky vintage shop I have seen.

And Breda and all the ladies are so lovely and very helpful. While playing dress up I chatted to Breda about where she sourced her clothing. She flies to Europe and the states to find amazing pieces and she has a fabulous eye!! Its like a treasure haven for vintage lovers, but also the perfect place to find a unique piece to upstyle with something current in your wardrobe.

In the next few days I will be posting some beautiful pieces I styled and cant wait to show you guys. Trust me if you are not a vintage lover I will convert you!!!

In the meantime have a look at the beautiful interior of Miss Daisy blue it is amazing and the collections in store are beautiful, there is something for everyone. Beautiful high quality sequin tops, delicate laces, loud floral 60s shirts, dresses and beautiful evening gowns.

While pottering around and playing dress up I came to the realisation that the 1950’s clothing are my favourite, especially the dresses, I also mourned how we don’t manufacture clothing as well as they used to in years gone by. The detailing and the tailoring in vintage clothes are amazing!! No sequins or beads popping off as you try on the garments, the quality is of the highest standard, and the boning in some of the dresses are beautiful and incredibly flattering.

I was wishing I had hundreds of events to go to, as there was so much beautiful stock in Breda’s store, at one stage a lovely young girl popped in with her mum to find her debs dress, it was amazing and I wished I had thought of that when my debs were on!!

And if I havent convinced you that this is one of the best vintage shops in Ireland, their award for best vintage store from Xpose Frockadvisor is proof!! And well and truly deserved.

Until next time

My style… floral prints

Fashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

For the whole summer I’ve been loving floral prints. It’s a nice change to see colour injected into the clothes in the form of floral prints. And this is here to stay for autumn winter.

I didn’t venture too much into the stores during the sales, the fact that I was moving house may have prevented that happening too! I did however manage to pop into @athlonetowncentre while at home and spotted this fab River Island skirt for €18 in the sale

As it wasn’t in my size the girls in River island @athlonetowncentre ordered it online for me and were so helpful having it delivered to my nearest River Island store.

I paired it with a bardot top from@ vanillaboutique which I love you can purchase it here and similar here

I love TK Maxx in @Athlonetowncenter and I picked up these sunnies for a steal at €16.99, they are Valentino! (TK maxx is great for that kind of thing) Bag is Carvela (as featured before, bought it in @Debenhams) Shoes are from a shoe shop in Donegal. A steal at €20!

Hey Ladies

So last week, I had the opportunity to get a peek at the new Autumn Winter range for River Island.

It was stunning, For Autumn Winter 2016 River Island have created a new and exciting collection with Opulent fabrics featuring throughout expect lots of pastel colours to break up the moody colour palette of greens, reds, blacks and navy.

For this collection there’s a broad array of prints from animal, to floral, striped to tartan adds a fun and youthful edge.
A  Victoriana inspired DECADENCE is stylish and elegant with a unique and contemporary spin.

Prints are key, with paisley and vintage florals worn head to toe. Luxe fabrics of faux fur, velvet and lace add texture whilst ruffled layers create volume.

Dresses take on a glamorous approach with high necklines, cold shoulders and floaty hems. Leopard print coats and Victoriana blouses are paired with candy pink buckle boots for a feminine feel with a slight 70s influence.

My style: Stripes are alright! Keep it simple!

My Style

Hey my lovelies,

Yet another post on my style, my way..I have this secret obsession with stripes!!

I can never get enough of them, but you know what? they are a must have for any wardrobe. Stripes in any type top or jumper are such a classic piece and never date! They look great with blazers, coats or paired with jeans. And their biggest advantage is they are so practical!

This one above, I had been lusting over for an age, and when in +Athlone Towncentre Shopping Centre , one day with my sister I spotted it back in stock. Its from Zara for €29.95, available here, I love the material, its a fine knit with a stretch in it and its so comfy.

The thing about this sweater that appealed to me most is the high neck on it. I’m not a huge fan of polo necks maybe because I don’t have a long neck, so this type of style suits me better!

I know its coming into the Summer so the likelihood of getting lots of wear out of it in the next few months is slim, although it is Ireland and the Irish weather can be unpredictable. One things for sure, it will be pulled out of the wardrobe for autumn.

The sunglasses are Guess, that I picked up in +TK Maxx, I swear by it girls, TK Maxx has a great selection of sunnies for fabulous prices, you just need to be quick! Those pair were €39.99!

A better look at the sweater, the back of it dips a little more in length than the front, which is a style I’m loving.

I paired the sweater with leather pants, and these ones I picked up in River Island a while back for €24 (I know!!) still some in stock but very little sizes (here) . If you are looking for a nice Leather pair then I would recommend the Freddy Leather pants (they are amazing and currently on my wishlist!)  available here.

The bag, no words needed really..this was bought as a gift from my brother on his travels a few years ago, he did good really didnt he? Its divine and one of my most coveted things in the wardrobe!

I kept the whole look casual by adding my adidas superstars, I love these, so comfy and great for casual wear…mind you not quiet sure how I kept them so white in this pic! You can find them here

I also gave this outfit a run for its money over in Paris too and was super for strolling around the pretty Parisian streets, casual yet stylish.

Hope you enjoyed this post

Until next time
