Hola! 
I hope you all had a great Christmas, I had one of the best ever. 
Now that Christmas is over it's time to focus on NYE! I bought this dress from a designer who hand makes all of her pieces because I wanted something different. 
I'm in love with it,the colour & length are perfect and I cant wait to wear it.


Happy new years!

Hola!

Just thought i'd take a quick OOTD on my way out the door to to pick up some things for my bday which is on Sat ( The big 19 ).
I spent most of my morning catching up on sleep,which was delightful of course,before buying everything pink,princess theme'd,and vodka related thing I could find.

Also loving my newest pair of boots,they are pretty high so they make your legs look like they go on forever & they are so comfortable!

The Dublin Diaries- Folkster




I recently went to Dublin with my mother over black Friday weekend to do some serious Christmas shopping. What I wasn't prepared for was stumbling into my own personal idea of heaven-Folkster.

Folkster is an incredible independent boutique that stocks Jeffery Campell,UNIF etc as well as hand picked one off pieces from all over the world. 
The shop itself is brimming with incredible individual items including a vintage tassel clad leather jacket that I fell in love with.




 The team at Folkster travel the world sourcing their stock & they style and direct their own incredible shoots.
The store is also home to a quirky home ware section with some amazing decadent decor,and a great selection of hilarious gift cards.
The best part of Folkster for me was the room that was full of full length,totally embellished gowns.
I could've lived there. 





                             I can't wait to get back there to buy myself a whole new wardrobe.

#DV8Christmas









It was festive fashion fever as bloggers and media gathered to celebrate Christmas with DV8 Fashion on Tuesday the 3rd of December. It was a more than productive lunch break from me as I managed to attend the event,browse the whole store and still managed to fit in my actual lunch.

 I was welcomed with a fantastic drinks reception, courtesy of Lambrini, before exploring the fabulous collections DV8 have on offer this festive season. I was very impressed by some gorgeous party season pieces,an incredible fur coat and DV8's serious shoe collection.








There was a styling competition where guests could style an outfit to win a party dress but I decided not to enter because I get crazy competitive so I thought i'd give others a chance!
I was gifted a voucher from the DV8 team so i'm looking forward to browsing the store to find my perfect outfit for Christmas day! 


What I wore-

Fur collar- Ebay
Shirt- Stradivarus
Skirt- Topshop
Boots- Office





Huge thanks to DV8 for having us!

Coral dreams set










Two piece- Sabo skirt
Heels- Missguided
Fur- Ebay


Yes,I know it's nearly December but I'm actually so in love with this two piece. It's from Sabo Skirt,an Australian site that I obsesses over on a daily basis and it arrived in under a week-amazing!

I think the fur warms it up a bit,no?! I'm just making excuses now. 
I love it too much not to wear it.
I'm also in love with my new missguided "Clara" heels that I picked up for £19.99 in the sale!


Happy Saturday everyone!

The classic coat





You know it's winter when you finally purchase your A/W coat for the year.
This year i'm particularly loving toned down neutral colours,especially the grey wool coats below.

Camel is also a perfect shade for this season,it makes any outfit instantly more stylish and pulled together. I went for camel last year though so grey is my colour of choice for this year! 

Enjoy all of this beautiful coat inspo!

Belfast Fashionweek


Belfast Fashion Week returned for its tenth and one of its best years yet.  Fashion Week headquarters are now at LIFE Church, an incredible building that was absolutely perfect for the event. The team are staying here for a few more seasons which is fab because I adore it. 
As I made my way into the venue I had my outfit snapped by Brendan Gallagher before being handed a glass of my fave West Coast Cooler Rose. I then dropped into the reception room which was decorated with an array of fairy lights and cherry blossom flowers hanging from the ceiling. Bellaire had a pop-up salon offering gorgeous manicures from their team and Peter Mark also had a mini-salon set up for guests to have their hair touched up before heading out for after show drinks.

Peter Mark's Mini salon.



-What I wore-


I was lucky enough to be styled by one of Belfast's best and most creative stylists, Lewis Robert Cameron from Beyond Man. He contacted me with the idea of collaborating to come up with my outfits for each of the shows, although, there wasn't much collaborating because Lewis put things together that I'd never think of. He's made me want to be more adventurous with my outfits and I certainly got all the attention that we were after!

Cocktails and Sushi from Zen lined the bar as Belfast's best dressed got style spotted for the Ulster Tatler and IN magazine before we all headed in to see the show.

Thursday night's show was Excel which showcased some distinguished and well known designer brands like Barbour, Ted Baker and Armani.


Designer's night was on Friday, it was my favourite. I witnessed some amazing creations from local designers such as Julia Sokele, GrĂ¡inne Maher and, my personal favourite,newcomer Chloe Dougan. This was as well as local boutiques like Jourdan, Diamond Dolls and the amazing Blush.

 Katie Wilson, Blush and Nor Lisa showing Northern Ireland's incredible creative talent. 


 The final catwalk show was high street heaven, the outfits were pulled together impeccably. I fell in love with the monochrome co ord that model Yomiko rocked. 
Castle Court dominated the catwalk during the high street show on Saturday. This Burton pastel blue suit just takes the biscuit though doesn't it? Love.

As always, a huge thank you goes out to the entire fashionweek team for another incredibly successful season. 
Here's to S/S 15!
