Pleated skirts…keeping it semi casual!

FashionMy Style

IMG_5892

Pleated skirts are everywhere….similar to the tulle skirt…although not as fuller a skirt.

I love the pleated skirt, I was afraid of it at first as I always thought it would make my hips look larger than they were, but the way they have designed them with more of a floatier feel in the material, tends to sit better on my shape.

IMG_5853

The skirt is penneys and sits lovely, it feels so comfortable too, Asos are currently during a similar one here

In fact the whole outfit is penneys apart from the headband which is new look and heels as before from Littlewoods for €15 here, the jumper is current stock and can be worn larger or neater which I went for, as my skirt was quiet floaty.

As I said I paired it with nude heels but for an even more casual look you could pair it with white trainers and it would still look good

Vintage Series ..the final look!

FashionFashion and Beauty Blog

IMG_5305

Aw its the final look of the Vintage series. I absolutely adored this collaboration with @MissDaisyblue and Emer @Irishfashaholic. It was so much fun and I adore vintage clothes. A beautiful piece is a beautiful piece it doesn’t matter what era its from. Beauty never fades!

IMG_5319

This top is divine and far far prettier in real life. The material (although you can’t see it) is almost sheer and see through and so delicate against my skin. I loved the frilling on the sleeves and necklace. Such a feminine look.

IMG_5322

I paired this vintage top from Miss Daisy blue with white jeans and nude heels. The jeans are River Island and you’ll find it here

IMG_5315

Vintage is so easy to upstyle girls and I hope after featuring this vintage series from Miss Daisy blue I have convinced you that its not only unique to wear vintage not to mention fashionable but very easy to wear in the current season.

Hope you enjoyed these post again thank you to Emer Irish Fashaholic and Breda Miss Daisy Blue. Go visit their store even if its just to play dress up you won’t be disappointed.

Until next time

Vintage Series…Sequins Jackets

FashionMy Style

Still sticking with sequins, what can I say I am a magpie when it comes to anything sparkly, always a girlie girl I guess!

IMG_5326

Another piece which caught my eye in Miss Daisy Blue, the sequin jacket…now if that doesn’t scream vintage I don’t know what does! This one is absolutely stunning, the intricate detailing on this jacket is amazing and not a loose or missing bead in sight…I’ll say it again, they really don’t make clothes like they used to years ago!

IMG_5333

I love this look and its something i’d wear for a night out with my girls! It was so easy to upstyle this. I paired it with my leather trousers from River Island (Picked up earlier this year) but they have similar in stock for €55 here and a penneys camisole I picked up for €4.99 about a month ago!

IMG_5346

Can we please take a minute to appreciate the workmanship on the back of this jacket, the detailing of the beading is incredible.

IMG_5329

The front too has amazing detail and the built in shoulder pads actually add to it. Its definitely my favourite piece from Miss Daisy blue. I think it was Emer’s favourite piece too (Emer from @Irishfashaholic shot all the pics for this look)

Again girls you could pair this with a skirt or white jeans and it would still look amazing.

IMG_5343

Who said vintage cant be upstyled and look current, all you need is to play dress up a little 🙂

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Until next time

Vintage series …Vintage Dresses Part 2

FashionMy Style

At this stage guys, you will be aware of my collaboration with Miss Daisy blue here in Cork. It was so much fun playing dress up and the choice was phenomenal especially when it came to dresses. I have come to the realization that  if I had to go back in time, the 1950 era would have suited me perfectly. An hourglass figure dominated the look of the 1950s. With cinched-in waistlines and accentuated hips and busts, the style was a decidedly mature one. And this below epitomes this look and was one of the reasons I was drawn to it.

IMG_5358

With its tight cinched waist, billowing skirt, and pronounced bust line , it oozes the early 1950’s” wasp waist” silhouette.

IMG_5349

I loved the fullness of this skirt and there appears to be a built in petticoat underneath which wouldn’t have been uncommon in this era. Normally  the skirt could be worn with a petticoat underneath to give it added fullness or with a thin slip for easier movement. It also has layers of tulle and a satin fabric on the waist of the dress. It is simply divine!

IMG_5362

The detail on the back has been given as much attention as the front. I loved the ladylike bow that is used to fastening the back of the dress. How amazing is the quality of this dress given that it is vintage?

IMG_5382

The length of this dress was so apt for 1950’s as back then after the war ended they shortened the length a little from ankle to mid length or just below the knee. This is still very popular today in 2016 and this dress would be perfect for a wedding, races or even for a bride to be, if she wanted something a little different. I love the scooped neckline on this dress & with the draped fabric it oozes elegance. The pale pink pastel colour is beautiful and emphasizes the sophistication of the dress.

IMG_5399 (1)

I paired this vintage beauty with pom pom heels I picked up from River Island in the sale for €42 similar colour here

The dress is from Miss Daisy blue and all their details are available here it was roughly €270 & worth every penny!

All pics are by the amazingly talented Emer @Irishfashaholic, it was a super day and I felt like a princess in this dress

Hope you enjoyed this look girls and please go check out Miss Daisy blue, I guarantee you’ll find some iconic pieces.

Until next time

Vintage Series, Vintage Dresses Part 1

FashionMy Style

IMG_5256

As per my previous post I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to collaborate with the lovely @MissDaisyBlue Vintage Boutique and Emer @irishfashaholic. (All pics below by Emer from @Irishfashaholic). Breda has a serious eye for exquisite vintage pieces and do pop over to her here and facebook and into their amazing store if you’re in cork!

My love for vintage never dies, if those clothes could talk wouldn’t we have some amazing stories. This beautiful dress caught my eye immediately when I payed a visit to the store. The colour was eye popping but also something you could wear today. Clothes are timeless pieces if they are bought right and vintage clothes are a true example of this!

IMG_5254

The Structure of this dress and the quality was and is amazing for a 1950’s era dress. It was appox €145 which is insane for such a quality vintage piece!

IMG_5271

I loved the pleated skirt on this and it was just below the knee, it felt amazing on. Cant you tell with all my twirling? The High neck with the pussy bow was so cute. It was the most comfortable dress and definitely a wow piece you could wear to a wedding as a guest or even the races. The condition of the dress is unreal and exquisite. And I love how the style compliments the figure with the trademark of the 50’s cinched in waist!

IMG_5272

I adored this dress but wait for my next post, I’m showing you another dress from Miss Daisy blue from that same era, and where I had my princess moment!

Stay tuned!

Until next time

Miss Daisy Blue. Vintage at its best!

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.

20160716_155221_resized  20160716_155230_resized

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.

20160716_155144_resized_1  20160716_150617_resized

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.

20160716_150504_resized_2  20160716_150514_resized_2  20160716_155155_resized_1

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!!

20160716_150522_resized 20160716_150556_resized 20160716_153807_resized_1

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.

20160716_155203_resized_1

So ladies if you are down south and in Cork do pop in and visit it as its such a little gem….cant wait to show you how I upstyled some of their amazing pieces

Until next time
