Styling A Studded Leather Jacket

Styling A Studded Leather Jacket

I have a lot of leather jackets but I am trying to get used to styling a studded leather jacket which I am blogging for this sponsored post with Penneys. Sometimes when you see details like studs you think “biker” but I beg to differ on this one. Yes, it has all the accents associated with a typical biker jacket which always work well with skinny jeans, but this one has, I don’t know, a little quelque chose de spécial (I…

A €50 look from Penneys and some news!

Hopefully we’ve all been paid for the month of February but that still doesn’t mean that we have to splurge our wages. I am trying to be frugal this month (and well this year) so I decided to set myself some style challenges one of which is to try and create outfits which cost less than €50, and that needs to include shoes and accessories. As part of my sponsored posts with Penneys, I get to test this out and…

A new Buy Now Wear Now Collection from Topshop Unique

Topshop knows how to do a catwalk show I tell you. Topshop Unique was no different for this year, except for the small matter that the collection was shop-able the second the show was over. This is a new movement. Tommy Hilfiger and Burberry are doing it too and perhaps it’s only a matter of time before we are previewing and shopping in season. The days of seeing the show months in advance, then waiting for magazines to print the…

Style Lessons from London Fashion Week

Fashion is ever an ever moving, ever changing and ever volatile thing. Trying to define what fashion is, is dependent on a couple of things, but the most important to me is how we see it on ourselves. How we style a coat, how we wear a shoe, how we accessorize. It’s so personal that what I may see as something “fashionable” someone else might see as dowdy. So basically, you just can’t define it by theory. You can define…

Fashion week makeup looks

My fashion week makeup looks for this season were sponsored by Note Cosmetics and Sleek Make up, and I was thrilled to work with two great brands that are not only quality products, but really very affordable. In case you haven’t heard of them, Note Cosmetics is new to Ireland and comes from the makers of NYX (they sold the brand and have now developed a new one). Note is a pharmacy brand which you’ll be seeing pop up around…

London Fashion Week Outfit Diary with Mint Velvet

I can’t believe I am back at London Fashion Week and my first outfit post from Day one comes from Mint Velvet. I style from Mint Velvet so much, so I feel like I know the brand inside out at this stage. For my look on Day One, I wanted to keep the look casual, and simple. I am always trying way too hard for fashion week when it comes to my outfits so this season I am staying true…

Skin and My Confidence

I’ve always had skin that doesn’t want to be clear. It’s terrible that in my early thirties a girl can’t catch a break from spots. Thankfully, my face is doing ok. I’ve been having some skin-changing treatments with Renew Clinic over the last nine or so months which has changed the texture, feel and appearance of my scarred skin. Acne hit in my teens but hit harder in my twenties and decided it liked me too much. Not only for…

Styling Monochrome

I really do live in monochrome or some form of black most of the time. I love it. It’s reliable and flattering. Easy. On a casual day when I have mostly desk work to do, and I don’t have to run around, then I keep it relaxed. And this look is probably the most apt example of my go to look. I love jeans. I love jeans. And I really love these jeans. The “Mom” fit was never top of…
