I have to apologise for the tardiness in getting this up! I had a bit of a hectic week and I ended up styling a shoot unexpectedly. Anyway here it is! From a fashion show in my college, to trying my hand at a new skill I’ve had quite the eclectic week of activities as well as discovering a few knew bits and bobs that I’ve become quite fond of. BROWN THOMAS AUTUMN WINTER 2019 It’s the highlight of our…View Post
Lorna shares the latest fashion news, trends, advice, interviews and celebrity style from Ireland and abroad.
Hows’ the weather where you are? It’s super here! I’ve had some outdoor time with my laptop which has made me very happy. So what’s been happening since last week’s post? Right, here we go with this week’s Lorna’s List. JO MALONE LONDON & PIETA HOUSE I was kindly invited by Jo Malone London to a breakfast in Brown Thomas this week to celebrate the launch of their charity partnership with Pieta House. A beautiful Ivy of the The Garden…View Post
It’s such a good week to shop summer accessories! The sun is finally out and we can get to wear the shorts, dresses and sandals we have been stock piling! But! If you want to change up your look ever so slightly each time you wear it, then you can use a variety of pieces to do this so easily. Let’s talk about sunglasses first. I recently invested in a pair of new Ray Bans – I love the lenses…View Post
You are probably wondering what on earth is this post about? Let me give you the back story. When I started the blog at the end of 2009, I changed the format so many times to try new things. I reported on news, trends and I still continue to do that, but what when I made my blog more of a business, my approach had to adapt. That’s logical considering the electricity bill needs to be paid and I need…View Post
I wanted to get back to diary entry blog posts so I am starting a weekly blog post on Friday's which shares some things I've loved, worked on, read, ate, developed an opinion on, tried out, tested, reviews and a lot more. It's called Lorna's List and I hope you like it.
Summer sandals are an essential from June to September whether you are in this changeable weather or basking in the sunshine somewhere fabulous. There are so many to choose from so I decided to do an edit of some styles I think are worth buying to wear with lots of outfit combinations as well as by the pool. The Birkenstock style is a big trend this season, I’ve actually had mine for about five years and they are still going…View Post
It’s approaching that time of year when we get those little pretty pieces of paper in the letterbox. Yes, it’s wedding season! When planning an outfit, I have some basic guidelines to bear in mind, which I hope will help you choose something that suits. Firstly, try and pick a look you can wear again and by this I mean styling with a leather jacket and ankle boots (if you opt for a dress) for example. It just gives the…View Post
I love playing with my hair. Colouring it, cutting it, using it as a means to change the way I look. If we want a change we pop to the hairdressers, right? Then there’s the old tale of a breakup and then cutting your hair to prove a point, which you think is to yourself but no it’s subtly to your ex. Our hair is such a huge determinant of our style I think. When my hair looks good I…View Post
I love trench coats and I reckon they are one of those capsule wardrobe pieces that just matches everything. At yesterday’s Xposé Style Sessions I did talk a lot about trench coats and how to style them. Now if you don’t feel like investing in the Burberry styles (which are gorgeous and very expensive) the high street and online shops have plenty to offer. In terms of variety, fabrics are aplenty. I love a coat with structure so I advise…View Post
I don’t I will ever get sick of midi dresses. They are the most relaxed, chic dress style for Spring (whenever that arrives, as I am still in tights and boots). And on cold stormy evenings I love to peruse websites finding style ideas to share with you. One thing I will note about this season is how bright it is. Reds, greens, cerise pink, sunshine yellow as well as the usual florals and pastels all make an appearance. I…View Post
