Sorry I haven’t updated in a long time it’s difficult when travelling around. Here’s a quick pic of me with a koala when I was in Cairns, Oz!
Ladies keep your eyes peeled! Fashion fad or functional must-have, every season there is a buzz around certain style or shape of sunnie, whether it be 2012 Miu Miu’s cat eye’s or Prada’s eccentric oversized pairs from the runways of 2011. This year its reflective mirrored sunglasses that are the shining star and all fashion it girls choice du jour.
These sunnies seem to be everywhere we look from international style bloggers, to the fashion pages of all magazines and Tommy Ton’s streetstyle shots.
Although there may not be much sun in Ireland at the moment it is always good to protect your eyes from UV rays and why not do it all the while looking like a shiny happy person…
It’s no secret that I love Cara like most people and this is one of my favourite glamour makeup looks that she has sported, plus I think it is easily recreated at home for a sultry night out.
The orangey-brown smoky eye and the dark, thick brow, yes those brows, they must be the most talked about brows on the planet, are my definition of makeup perfection.
To top knot it all off the hair is sleeked back, sophisticated and throw on top of the head. Saturday night, bring it on!
Dj, girl-about-town and general cool-girl, Leigh Lezark possesses that laid back attitude that only certain girls are born it. I’ve always admired her style.Her skinny little frame is riddled with tats and she has been famed for that raven, sleek bob that made even me want to turn to the darkside.
Suprisingly though she’s given up the bottle (she’s actually a natural blonde) and returned to her roots, excuse the pun.
Personally I can’t help but long for her edgy, mysterious black hair and have certainly made up my mind on what I prefer. What do you think?
With St.Patricks Day behind us we can say slan agus beannacht to garish greens that bring back hauting memories of Irish school garbardines and scary leprechaun outfits.
Throw in the fad and forget forty shades and choose just three easy to wear tones. No snot green here.
One. Mint green goes with most skin colourings so do not fear it kids. Pair your chosen piece with a bright pink lipstick. Not one to change my ways I love Topshop’s Brighton Rock, no suprise here. Be brave like Iris from Fashion Zen and go all fuzzy in a mahoosive fur coat too.
Two. Khaki comes and goes like the common cold to me. Sometimes I dread the revival of this Cheryl Cole loving shade (not so good) and other times I’m the first to tear my wardrobe apart in search for those skinny khaki cigarette pants that I never manage to chuck into the Salvation Army bag.Like a good Coldplay song I’m a bit bored with it now. Overdone or not it is most definitely a fashion staple. Angela Scanlon wears it here with Ronald McDonald shades and still manages to make it look fresh and non-commando like. Thumbs up!
Notice you in Neon
Three. Spot the lime green beanie. I wish I could. I’ve been scouring shops up and down Sydney and on the internet in search for the perfect one. Everyone seems to have one except me. I’m on the brink of a fashion tantrum. I’m beginning to conclude that I have a strange shaped head as I can’t find one with the perfect fit. Either way neon green is having a mo’ and you should all be looking for one of these beanies. Plus, you’ll be easy to spot on the slopes too!
I’m obssessed with aussie brand Shakuhachi! True that. It has absolutely everything a hip, fun-loving girl could need in their wardrobe to emulate Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush. Sleek leather seperates in shades of black and silver, neon (not tacky mind you) 90s-inspired party dresses and hipster perfect flatforms galore.
Right now its this sporty, high waisted bikini that is on sale for $40 that has caught my eye. Ideal for that surf down at Bondi. A girl can dream.
Plus I think some of their pieces are stocked on Asos now!
Right so am I obssessed with streetstyle? Like the rest of the fashion world right now, I think so. IT probably happened a few seasons back when Tommy Ton, Facehunter, Carolines Mode and em, of course, my blog became mainstream. It is as if what is going off outside the tents is nearly, and I said nearly, as important as whats going on inside on the runways. That’s last weeks news. What lingers is what the front page it-girls are wearing and how crazy they wear it. Is it the Kenzo clad bloggers to blame or is this just simply the fashion world way of the future?
It is a debate that will go on for a couple more seasons or until Tavi finally hits the bottle but one none the less that is interesting to monitor, good to acknowledge is happening and of course, enjoyable to gaze at from a distance.
I for one started out my blog as part of my college degree in London College of Fashion, not as a pass to fashion week and all its perks, but then again I wanted to work in magazines and not just be a blogger, but being just a blogger has it distinguishable benefits and is certainly not something to be frowned upon now.
Which brings me to why I started writing this lengthy, rant-like post. Valentino rockstud shoes. Enough said. Everyone loved them despite their usually sickly kitten height. But when ALD wears a shoe religiously you got to admit it and take the plunge down south. Cue petite ladies around the world frantically throwing shoes! Me included.
But I never weat flats anyway so I suppose this height is perfect for those days when I’m going hiking or on a 12 hour shopping spree. Maybe.
Anyway get your lookalikes on the high street at label of the mo’ Boohoo.com. Totally glamourous…for €38!
Like the common cold it caught on.
Ombre, two-tone, balayage, dip-dye whatever you want to call it! Everyone was going around and it was spreading like wild fire on the chilly, not so beachy streets of Dublin. And when things catch on in Ireland this is a bad thing let me tell you.
Sure you all might be a bit sick of it by now and in the winter months so was I. But I was suprised by myself when I was lusting after all the lovely lassies from Australia with their long flowing, beachy waves that had a sun-kissed shimmer that you only see in the magazines.
Everyone and I mean everyone has it down here. Typically it suits the laid back Bondi and Byron Bay buzz to this city down to a tee and it looks so damn good.
I am loving it once again and am missing my long, dip dyed blondy locks. Return of the ombre is slowly starting to happen ladies, dun, dun, dun! Just perhaps reconsider it if your still in the frosty Irish weather.
