A Style Post: Studded Leopard Print Slipper Shoes

Hey All,

I’ve waited long enough to get a pair and having finally chosen and ordered them, they arrived last week, my flat leopard-print slipper shoes. They couldn’t be more fashionably OTT if they had heels. Pony skin: check; Leopard print: check; all over spike studs, check, check check. I got them on line at Sheinside.com long with the leather trim blazer. Sometimes I wonder if I bore you all with the same style; slim-fit trousers, a jacket/blazer, some sort of vest top, heels… I never get bored of those pieces, it’s just nice to mix them up with something a little special now and again. Right?

Keeping the outfit to a black/fawn colour pallet I carried this Kurt Geiger Perspex XL Pouch, it has a wrist strap and the inside purse is attached to the outside at the seams. It reminds me of that 70’s furniture, made from thick brown glass and highly polished chrome, nicely retro.

A Style Post: Pink Jeans and Leopard Print

Hello all,

As if you’re inside reading right now! Brightly coloured jeans are what summer is about. I like a slash of colour in an outfit but I usually leave it to just the one piece. However, having received my baroque / polka dot print shirt from Sheinside… (new love for on line shopping) I bit the bullet and went for all over colour.

As many of you know, I grew up in London, when i moved to Dublin five years ago, the first thing I noticed about Irish fashion was the vast colour pallette. Ok so in Dublin we still love an LBD or a classic black wool winter coat, but just walking down Dame Street there is so much colour. It took me a while to brave the colour myself, I was  happy to style-watch wearing the odd pop of blue or green. Now I feel brave enough, and what better place to show off my newly-colourised wardrobe, than my old home town?

Oddly, I hadn’t realised that I’d completely accessorized with black, ah well you can’t change everything all at once.

P.S Recognise any of the details in these photos…?

Banksy? Seen Lock Stock and two Smoking Barrells…? If you ever get the chance, taking a stroll around London Bridge to Borough Market and beyond is an amazing way to spend an afternoon.

Inspired by fashion Post – Blonde Hair

Hey all,

So after the summer ’12 inspired fashion post on Wednesday, I reckon it’s time I looked at summer hair. I want to go blonder, not screen-siren structured blonde. I mean more California blonde, that perfect clean, surf-y, fresh kind of blonde.  Hair that hasn’t seen a curling iron or straightners, (or at least doesn’t look like it has), hair that is blonde from root to tip, naturally sun-bleached or otherwise, as long as it is blonde, not ombre blonde.

Simple, brilliant, stunning blonde.

Model Blonde: Abbey Lee Kershaw

Rock Blonde: Anita Pallenberg

Editorial Blonde: Anja Rubik (for Vogue)

Classic Blonde: Brigitte Bartdot

Controversial Blonde: Courtney Love (for Elle Mag)

Windy Blonde: hair blowing in the wind (weheartit)

Ever noticed how beautiful blonde hair looks in black and white photography?

A Style Post – Tropical Print Dress and two-strap shoes.

Hi All,

S/S’12 and all those great new trends and colours we’re yet to wear! I wear black and navy blue so often that I long for bright colour pops when spring comes around.

Trend-wise I love the Tropicana prints at Stella McCartney, Salvatore Ferragamo and Dior. Tropical prints featuring palm trees, parrots, surfers and even mermaids (Versace), in shades of bluem green, colablt and teal.

Colour-wise, I love the  shades of rich blues and greens; I presume that when Spring / Summer colours are presented each year very often they’re pale pastel shades so as not to alarm us? Pretty but also pretty plain. I prefer the bold strong colours that filter through as the season progresses.

And boy am I getting ready to wear them. The dress is vintage, it was knee-length and I chopped and hemmed it to mini-skirt perfectios, the pockets are awesome, more pockets in dresses please! – to anyone who’s listening…

Now I’m of the nearest Tiki bar for a piña colada, while I wait for some tropical sunshine.

A Style Post: Sheer Sunshine

Hello All,

Sunshine, Joy. Official ‘Summertime’, Joy. Warm bright evenings, Joy.

I’m so excited at the moment. The massive amounts of extra daylight and beautiful sunshine we’ve been having has made me happy. Being able to do things that don’t involve and NOT WEAR TIGHTS is too good. I’m kinda running myself to the max at the moment, freelance deadlines and blog style posts, as well as trying to run an on-line vintage business on ASOS and setting up my own site… But I love it, being busy is great! Makes you feel alive.
