In the fickle world of fashion, colour trends come and go; we’ve been seeing lilac challenging millenial pink as the next must-have colour (coincidentally these two colours are a match made in heaven) and already there’s a new pretender on the block. While everyone has been talking about lilac, green has been quietly rising up the ranks in shades from mint to forest as well … Continue reading Green with envy!
Now that we’re a couple of weeks into January I have finally stopped longing for a return to Christmas and am getting so excited for Spring. It’s still deathly dark in the mornings and absolutely freezing (as I type it is actually snowing outside!) but I can almost sense Springs arrival in the air. A new season brings with it new fashion and after layering … Continue reading Top trends for SS18
Happy new year! You can still say that in week 2 of January right?! In all honesty the arrival of a new year quite often fills me with mixed emotions. Rather than waking up on January 1st brimming with enthusiasm for the year ahead and the possibilities it brings, I often feel a weird mix of nostalgia (for the good times the previous year brought), … Continue reading New year, same me!

If you don’t think Christmas fashion is the best of the whole year then I’m sorry, we can’t be friends. Now that Halloween is over it is totally acceptable to talk about the C word! … Continue reading Ultimate Christmas Party Edit
Let’s face it, corduroy has a rep as one of the most unsexy fabrics of all time. Even the name sounds uptight and stuffy. Corduroy is basically a form of ridged velvet but while velvet got invited to all the best parties in town, cord became the uniform of choice for professors and geography teachers alike. However, given the resurgence in popularity of velvet, it … Continue reading Striking The Right Cord
Happy almost weekend everyone (can it just be Friday now please?). Hope you all have had a great week so far!

You may have noticed that I have been pretty quiet here on the blog over the last couple of weeks…at least I hope you’ve noticed and I’m not just here talking to myself! As some of you may know, I recently relocated from Dublin to Galway after 10 years living in the city and so have been a little distracted with all things move related. … Continue reading Big Life Changes & Unlikely AW Style Heroes
I know what you’re thinking, there’s nothing ground-breaking about faux fur for Autumn Winter! So why am I dedicating a blog post to it, I hear you ask? Well my fellow fash-hun’s forget what you think you know about faux fur because this season’s furs are brighter and bolder than ever before! Traditionally, faux fur conjured up major Cruella de Ville vibes however rocking fur … Continue reading Are You Faux Real?

It was also my 33rd birthday … Continue reading Layering Like A Pro
