Hope you enjoyed my last post. Let me know if you did and I’ll do another one as well as an outfit video to accompany it 🙂 I’ve been very busy with my internship and it’s hard to believe, but my internship is almost over. I finish on the 14th of November. I love it there and I love the changes they’re doing. The clothes are fab and by the way they are holding a giveaway on their Facebook page! It’s one not to be missed!
Anyways I’ve been finding it hard to bring everything I need with me, (lunch, laptop, diary, planner etc.) to work in one bag. In fact I’ve taken three different bags to work sometimes because not everything fits in one. It’s so frustrating! I’m thinking of getting one and hopefully this edit will help me decide. If you have any recommendations do please let me know in the comments section below. Enjoy!
The best season for fashion is here! I am soo excited to get layering and just dressing in mostly black and dark colours…I do that anyways but it feels better when it’s Autumn. I’m sure you know what I mean.
So..I have a bit of news..This post marks my third year blogging. Yup I’ve been blogging for three years and I’m still loving it!
Velvet..ahhh velvet you make my mouth water every time I mention your name..velvet. Yes it is a standard AW trend but hey when it’s good it’s good..right?! Who does it better than Saint Laurent? No one.
Here is how I would style this dress.. I know the 60’s look is very much a trend this session and you can see it everywhere so this dress is the perfect way for you to kill two trends with one stone. I decided to keep it very dark and well I like my Autumn/Winter to be like that because there is a darkness in all of us and I find it comes out in AW.
Another trend which I am in LOVE with and find that we women can pull it off way better than men…is the androgynous look. Cara Delevingne showed how good we can do it when she attended yesterday’s Burberry SS15 show. She was wearing the most gorgeous suit ever and she did it a la Chanel with a sneaker. Also my fave suits are from Saint Laurent.
I went for a very minimalistic and almost a nod to the sports luxe trend which is still very popular and from what I’ve seen from the Fashion Weeks it’s going to stay for SS15.
Last but not least is capes! Capes Capes Capes…I gotta get me some capes! This was seen the most at the Saint Laurent show (you can tell I’m in love with Saint Laurent can’t ya?). Everything from fur to wool..it’s all there for us and I can’t wait to invest in a cape. I want to feel like Red Riding Hood but without a wolf wanting to eat me of course. Imagine if a wolf just magically appears wanting to eat you every time you put on your cape! O_O
I decided to pair the cape with how I would wear it (of course) and also you can easily dress up a cape. It’s for every occasion.
I was invited to the Warehouse AW14 Press Preview by the lovely Roisin Moloney and Katie Allen and I’m so glad I was because it iwas brilliant and exciting to be able to go to one finally! I took the day off work for it and set my alarm for 5:30am…our train was leaving at 6:40am O_O you can imagine how I was. But..it was worth it!
We got to the train station early, for once, and went and took our seats in the train. I got a danish since, even though we did plan on bringing something with us to not spend money, I ended up spending money on something to eat…it was a danish that wasn’t nice and cost €2.50!
Anyways I got to Dublin at 9am and we headed straight to Warehouse. I went upstairs and was greeted by one of the lovely girls there. I signed my name and off I went to look at the collection and my gosh it’s amazing! I love the different textures, the furs, the leathers, the metallics, the knits etc. I loved the colours as well..pastels, brights and deep hues were on show. One thing that I kept noticing were co-ords and yes they’re here to stay. I love co-ords.
There were light refreshments and everything looked fresh…I tried the pure orange juice and it was lovely..Also RTE was there so that was a bonus!
The lovely Lia Stokes talked me through the collection and she was brilliant. I fell in love with the co-ords and the coats..they were amazing! The lovely Roisin came up to me and we talked for a little bit..she’s lovely and am so grateful she invited me! Thank you Roisin! I hope I can make it to many more 🙂
I was given my goodie bag by Lia and I hadn’t checked it until an hour or so later when we sat down for something light to eat. I was so shocked and excited to know there was a gift card in it and yup I can’t wait to get myself something nice!
I can’t wait for my next press preview! Hope you enjoyed this post and do let me know what you think. I will have another post up with all the lookbook photos this week so watch out for that.
You are Beautiful!
I had to share with you this Karen Millen Accessory and Footwear edit because…well it’s amazing! They really have made it stronger this season and well it’s hard not to when it’s the best season for fashion! There’s suede, leather, fur etc and it’ll make your outfit.
Whether you need it for work, every day or when you’re going out then Karen Millen for sure has you covered.
I am in LOVE with everything..it’s all so luxurious because of the different textures and colours. It’s also very classic and will go with everything. What do you think?
lucky you if you’re going to Electric Picnic! Hope you enjoy yourselves! If you can’t yet decide or if you haven’t yet bought your festival outfit then Warehouse will help you out with the perfect festival ready outfit.
Because our weather is so temperamental you can never be too careful in what to pack for a festival. So it’s best to be prepare. What better place than Warehouse. I love how individual yet trendy they are and they always have something for any occasion.
Denim cut offs are a must for any festival and going the boho chic way is the best way, in my opinion. You can pear denim cut offs with anything and here you can see how you can do that very easily. A backpack for all your necessities is a must and I would definitely recommend going for either a faux leather or real leather one like the red one below.
Another outfit which would be easy to put together and can be transformed is a dress. You can make it boho chic again or uber 90’s. Pair it with the hat of the season, fedora, and away you go.
Last but not least is my favourite look. It’s super rock chick and one that I would definitely wear. I live in jeans and these are amazing. The knee slit is on trend this season and can you believe I have not gotten myself a pair yet?! These Warehouse ones look AMAAAAZING!
I hope this has helped you in choosing your perfect festival outfit. Which would you choose?
Some exciting news about Oasis and if you are an Oasis fan. Peter Ting, award winning ceramic designer has collaborated with them and though I don’t know his designs personally I can definitely say you will be excited about this. It has already launched, it launched last Friday 22nd, and the prints are amazing.
Taking inspiration from traditional Chinese (Hua Niao) flower bird paintings, the print features beautiful in flight hummingbird silhouettes. I think what he has created is basically a masterpiece with this print.
Oasis Design Director, Clive Reeve, commented; “I have always loved ceramics and admired Peter’s work. His beautiful bird designs and sophisticated palette form the basis of this gorgeous collection.”
The collection consists of thirteen pieces and they’re so individual. I love the garnets he chose to put his mark on. It really goes with what the hummingbird signifies.
Charming shades greens and purples (my favourite colour) form a perfect palette to make the move into Autumn. Peter adds; “I am thrilled to collaborate with Oasis. The collection captures the charm, energy and spirit of Flutter by Oasis and I feel a real affinity and fondness for a brand that loves pattern and print as much as I do! Seeing my original ceramic designs transform into a beautiful clothing collection has been an utterly absorbing and completely fascinating process.”
The pieces are available in store and online and the prices start at €28
Here are my top picks from the collection…let me know which are your faves and go get shopping as they won’t be there for long!
Hey guys so I’m back (how many times have I said that right?) I have been working non-stop and have lost the motivation to blog but fear not I’ve regained it and hopefully you’re as excited as I am :p
I want to begin this next chapter (In September I’ll be blogging for 3 years?!) with a blog post on the blogger event I recently attended. It was organised by the lovely Sinead from Yummy Mummy Fashion and Lifestyle blog and it was great.
The venue was also beautiful! It was the Gaslight Restaurant at the Meyrick Hotel and my gosh it’s such a beautiful Hotel. It’s bang in the centre of Galway city and it’s close to everything. It’s perfect if you’re there for a city break or a weekend/weekday escape.
I arrived there and was greeted by super stylish bloggers..we were all greeted with cocktails which were amazing!
We then sat down in our designated area to talk about different topics that were on the table. While we were talking the Gaslight staff brought us over some yummy foodie goodies. They were delicious.
I met a lot of great bloggers at the event and can’t wait for the next one…I was also honoured that the bloggers there picked me as their most stylish blogger. Thank you all 🙂 I won a Fanny Crown dress of my choice (I have just chosen-it was so hard!) We each received a goodie bag, thank you McSharry pharmacy! There were also prizes on the day and some of them included Pixy items!
Lets take a look inside the goodie bag shall we?…
I can’t wait to try it all! Here’s a list of all the bloggers that attended 🙂 Check out their blogs. Go on..it’s a lazy Sunday after all 🙂
