Reiss and Robin Hood

Hey Readers,

I was sitting having coffee yesterday afternoon, when I commented on a woman who walked by; she looked absolutely pristine. Her make-up, hair, tan, pretty white trench, pressed blouse and polished heels were all perfect. She was walking at that pace that says, I’m in a bit of a hurry, so I presumed she wasn’t just out for an afternoon stroll.

I said to Ryan, “you know I’m so in awe of women like that. They just look so perfect all the time”.

I’m one of those people that no matter how long I could spend getting ready, the second I walk out of the front door the following will happen: The heavens will open / I will get puddle-splashed by a car / my tights will get caught and ladder / I will have forgotten to apply mascara, (or if I do remember I will get something in my eye and the mascara will end up down my cheek), etc, etc..

You see, I think I’m actually a bit of a scruff-bag and so I dress appropriately, which means I shop in places that sell clothes that suit me / my chaotic life.

As for Mrs. Pristine, “I bet she shops in places like Reiss” I continued.

To which Ryan replied, “I love Reiss!”. Now this came as no shock, Ry always looks wicked smart, but he was shocked that I had never been in there.

So it was bye-bye coffee and hello Reiss and their accessories.

Yes I bought it, it was €32 and I can’t thing of a better way to pop my Reiss cherry. Well pleased with it! Not only that, but I wore it to the Robin Hood screening at Dundrum last night. I’m a complete sucker for Robin Hood (and Russell Crowe) so as you can imagine, this film did not disappoint. I’m definitely going to do a Maid Marion inspired personal style post too.

Other Reiss accessories that I didn’t buy, but so would’ve:

(Massive thanks to Joanne and Sinead for wangling the Robin Hood ticket for me!)

    Thank you for the thank you!
    That jewellery is beautiful, and makes me so grateful that I can’t wear any metal other than platinum, gold or silver. I’d be even more broke than I am……

    Yeah Reiss is nice, but I’ve actually never bought anything in there! And I’m exactly the same as you…I can put in SO much effort at home and then the world ruins me as soon as I step outside!…tbh, even when I do make the effort, I still never manage to look perfect!
