SPRING SUMMER 2020 PREVIEW AT BROWN THOMAS

There is no doubt that seeing a spring summer collection for the first time on a dull, wet January morning can alter your mood. We may arrive in the heavy coats of last season or if you have one, a very fancy raincoat, but that is promptly forgotten once we see first model come down the catwalk in a bright, fresh springtime hue. The bi-annual Brown Thomas press show is something I very much look forward to. For me, it…

LORNA’S LIST JULY 12TH 2019

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!

BLOGMAS Day 6 and 7 CHRISTMAS EVENTS AND PARTY WEAR

I love getting dressed up and party wear is in abundance this season. I have had a busy week but I have been invited to some lovely things after work which have given cause to get my glad rags on! Wednesday night was a fabulous Cartier party to celebrate the collection of watches on display (you can buy them too) at Weir & Sons on Dublin’s Grafton Street. Cartier are the most luxurious brand in the world and I was…

OPINION: BROWN THOMAS AUTUMN WINTER 2018

Having been a seasoned fashion show goer, there’s an aesthetic I always expect. White and bright, rows of benches painted in the same hue, plastic covered catwalks providing more glare than my anti-glare glasses can bear, fashionistas and editors milling around to find a seat while balancing phones, bags, multiple sheets of paper with press releases, and amongst that a cup and saucer of much needed caffeine. But there has been a shift. Walking into the transformed Designer Rooms at…

How To Style Winter Knitwear

It’s getting so cold, and this week I have been trying to stay cosy, so I thought a post on how to style winter knitwear might be rather apt. There are so many knits to choose from but having searched for the perfect jumper I found this Oasis Pattern Jumper which I just love. It’s incredibly soft so there is no risk of itch! The neckline is nice and high without being a polo neck so there really is no…

How to Wear Tulle

Topshop Tulle Skirt 2. Needle and Thread Embellished Dress 3. Self-Portrait Cream dress 4. Boohoo Skirt 5. Reclaimed Vintage Skirt at ASOS 6. Bershka Dress  7. Topshop Embroidered Boots I have recently become very fond of tulle as a fabric. It reminds me a bit of ballerinas, but this year the ballerina can wear her tutu off the stage at the Opera house. I’m not exactly ballerina-esque but tulle has captured me. Skirts are probably my favourite and I have spotted a few that…

Brown Thomas Autumn Winter 2016

Brown Thomas Autumn Winter 2016

It’s one of the most anticipated shows of the Irish fashion calendar, and I look forward to it. Not only for the glamour, but to see the edit of trends from BT’s most loved brands. The trends this year, are dark. Lot’s of black, velvet, winter prints and layering. Now, each designer will say that their aesthetic doesn’t conform to set trends per se, but we like to categorise things don’t we? So let’s give you a run down of…

Ok don’t leave just because I mentioned the”W” word!! Yes, it’s July but we can talk about Autumn Winter 2016! There are so many nice clothes to take a gander at, and I am currently going to all the press presentations to see what the high street stores have for us.

Gift ideas for Father’s Day

Gift ideas for Father’s Day

I generally find it hard to come up with gift ideas for Father’s Day every year and this year is no different. My Dad is a fairly simple man; he is always so genuinely pleased with anything we give him and that’s one quality that I really admire. He’s never let us want for anything our lives and worked so hard to provide a lovely and safe home for us. So the least I can do is mark the occasion…
