blogger street style london midi leather skirt heels heart print (6)
The skirt (Once Removed Vintage) is made of the softest leather and is incredibly warm, the Shirt (Topshop) and shoes (Miss Selfridge) were both seen-online-must-have-them-now, High Street buys. I love mixing high street fashion with vintage pieces. This leather bowling bag (M&S) is a little pop of colour and the gold buckles on the shoes (there are a lot of them) mirror the gold watch (ASOS) and vintage gold chain accessories.

Not strictly a fashion post, but it’s certainly got style. This frock coat is from Bank, and is a wool blend, it’s really smart and works really well layers over opaque tights and fitted trousers. The bag is vintage… The tube station? Euston…

Whisty Street Style Blue Topshop Suit Primark Sandals 2013 lo

I love blue for spring/summer 2013. I love this cobalt blue jacquard suit (Topshop) because the trousers end above the ankle. You can’t go wrong flashing the flesh either side of an ankle strap with them. Penneys/Primark have these perfect, seriously comfortable pair.

Whisty Dublin Castle Blogger Street StyleAs always this look is a mix of vintage and high street, the dress is a 60’s Jeff Banks and the velvet kimono is ORVintage from the 70’s. The boots are Ted Baker and the watch is ASOS.

October 22nd, 2012

I love this outfit. The layers keep it fashion-forward but also wearable. The boots (Kurt Geiger) and coat (Zara) are set to be my October staples; the Burberry cardigan I’ve had since last year, it’s a really loose knit so isn’t warm enough for the depths of winter, but it’s perfect for now. The vest is River Island, The trousers are Karen Millen and the scarf is from a charity shop.

September 12th, 2009What I wear 12th September 4 lo res

I adore paddling in the sea at Bray; as soon as there is the merest hint of sunshine, I’m on the DART in my vest and skirt! Shoes in-hand here, I’m wearing gold chains I bought in a charity shoop, a button-front white slouchy vest top from Bershka with a just seen leopard print bra I bought in NYC from Forever 21. The wide elastic belt is one I’ve had from Topshop for ages and the floral-print skirt with pockets & Sequinned pumps are both from New Look. NB: I’m carrying a sweet, studded clutch purse a got in the sale at AWear

September 5th, 2009 – Electric Picnic LookFestival fashion Street Style Blogger

Below the knees I’m in Hunter wellies, obvs, this dress is one of the best things I’ve ever bought I have it in three colours and it is so versatile. It’s great for festivals but I can also style if slightly differently for dress-down day at the office. I got the turquoise metallic headband and the Pillowcase dress from American Apparel. The pink studded belt s a brighter nod to the traditional rock chick festival style, by  Matthew Williamson for H&M. The green slouchy cardi s from Penney’s / Primark and  is about the only cardigan I own. I have huge trouble with the arms on cardigans, they’re always rediculoulsy tight…? As mentioned the Wellington boots are Hunter

September 3rd

WIW Sept 3rd 3The less said about this pose the better… The vintage cropped leather jacket was a present and was originally from Topshop. I bout the floral print Lycra dress at New Look , I don’t know why there isn’t a New Look in the centre of Dublin and we have to go traipsing to the out of town malls instead. I do like a bit of ‘ghetto gold’, except this is just a gold-coloured multi-chain necklace, which I got from a charity/thrift store in Rathmines… I’m waiting for my neck to turn green… 🙂 NB: the over-the-knee socks are dark grey and I finally found the perfect pair in H&M.
