#3 Animal Print.

1. Because it is in. I like following trends, sue me :)

2. Its edging on trashy. Diana Vreeland famously observed that everyone with good taste needed a little bit of vulgarity to save themselves from the tedium of predictability. 

Diana Vreeland, style icon.

3. ...You will feel more in tune with nature... or maybe just what's in :P

Don't forget feathers! Birds are animals too!

#2 Denim on Denim

Denim on denim is back and while it is on trend you might as well get those jeans on because once this trend retreats back in to the era of Rick Astley it will be too late!


Wear it in front of a fence just like Rick Astley :)

Bad girl's hard times mood of the 80s.
Breaking the rules.
1930's wild west cowboys.
Mods and skinheads of the 60's.
Hippies of late 60s and 70s.

Just do it :)

#1 Geek Chic

If you deny your inner nerd, you deny yourself! Must have item: geek glasses, it will help to fully embrace your inner awkwardness. It is number one in this list because it is a fun look and will allow you to stop taking yourself seriously. Let's begin!

First, put your outfit together!

Second, wear it out to the library, geeks thrive in their natural habitat.

And finally, wear it clubbing and see how out of place you feel :)

A New Angle

Here goes, a challenge indeed this is, but one worth tackling. What are the hundred things you have to wear before you die? What articles of apparel must you experience? A very subjective question but what the heck! Life is short, let the count down begin!...

I went to see two fashion shows on Opera Lane on Saturday and really liked what I saw!!

There was some great looks on the casual yet smart side.

Also the Alice Halliday collection was amazing!!!


And now all of a sudden I am obsessed with blazers and Aladdin ;)

Day One Of DMs

 Those Doc Marten's where pretty tough on my feet today, as soon as I got into town I headed to Penneys to get some fluffy socks  (so fluffy!!), and they did help, but then, my foot felt really squished in and some of my toes started going numb. This is not the end though, mark my words! You will get broken in!!!!

And now that I am done ranting at my shoes, here are some pictures...

Listening to: Words Fail Me by TT Chris.

Thinking: Should be out!!!

Planning: To go to town tomorrow to watch the opera fashion shows.

Wanting: Bed.

My Modern-Day Red Ruby Slippers

Today I bought some glorious shiny red doc martins. They are gorgeous and I can not wait to wear them tomorow!!! They seem fairly tough though, I forsee a long breaking in period, but it's going to be worth it!!

Aren't they lovely :)

Also some ideas and inspiration...

What do you think about DMs?

Cork Fashion Week 2011

Recently started writing for I've liked writing ever since I can remember, but now I'm starting to love it!

But more importantly this week was Cork's Fashion week. Sadly I missed all the events through carelessness but CFW's site showcases the talent and style of the week pretty well. I absolutely adore the make-up and hair in the Designers Award show, the huge sweeps of eye-shadow are mad!!! And the up-dos too. As for the actual designs, I loved the feminine, flowing dresses, the models look like fairy geishas. And in general there was plenty of originality throughout the shows.

Fortunately, I didn't actually miss all the events as this weeks Opera lane fashion show was moved to next Saturday because of the weather. Can't wait to go!!! Hopefully I'll see many of you fashionistas there!

Curly and Pearly

What’s up my peeps?

 Discovered one can get awesome hair from wearing your hair in a high tight chignon all day. So au natural! And that is exhactly what I am looking for because my hair can not take any more abuse from hot styling tools! Also, last time thanks to a really akward hair curler, my face and neck got some abuse too, I’ve got burns galore, not cool!

 Currently, impatiently, awaiting to find out if I can still go to France on Erasmus this year, technically speaking it is way too late but if any of the French universities are still willing to take me on I would die from happiness, and also terror because going to a country on my own where I barely speak the language is no mean feat. Anyway, it’s Thursday and a day of study awaits in case I am stuck here for the year. Tout a l’heure!!!

This Friday (day and then) Night!

This is what I wore Friday, for the day and then going out aswell, sorry for being moody on my night out also people, I don't know what came over me!! Otherwise I'm having a lovely Sunday, just after watching Funny Face and having some lovely ice cream dessert.

On My Mind: Being brave, why is it so hard sometimes to ask for the smallest thing because you fear the word no so much?

Plans: Hmmm... not sure. College tomorow!! Can't wait to stick my head in the books again, man I'm such a dork!!
