I thought you said ‘summer’?

I thought it was summer yesterday so I put on this dress. Then I went outside and it rained and I cried. Then I went for pints and the match in Sinnotts, then to The Port House for some meatballs. aubergine, patatas and other tapas style foodstuffs. Overall it was a good day but my legs were freezing.

And while we’re at it -Asos SS 2011

If you are prone to spending money on shit you don’t need but that look pretty, look away now. Here are the campaign shots from Asos SS collection.


Street Snap

I was heading over for a sneaky Thrusday snifter last week when I was stopped in my enthusiastic tracks by a spiffing young man by the name of Stephen, who kindly asked to take my photie. Luckily through my my awesome powers of STALKING I registered that he was not in fact another crazy loon with a canon, and that he was the author of one of my fave Irish fashion blogs Stiches, Fabric and Soul. I wonder if he knew that if he’d had asked me to write ‘Trashbag’ on my face in mushy peas and jump on a plate of Coppinger Row’s calamari I would have done so with a smile on my face for him?

Stephen’s kind words:

I’m just going out on a limb here. . .

. . . thinking that Rumi Neely of fashiontoast is a possible style influence for this woman.
To be honest though, the initial reason I took this photo was because of the skirt length. It just seems so current, despite the hems offered by Isabel Marant, Balmain, et al for the current and upcoming seasons. After that though, everything else became much more apparent – the plausible Jeffrey Campbell shoes (though, and don’t hate me, I think they’re Topshop), the leopard print, the statement jewels, and ombre hair.
It’s great to see her translate this very tough and gothic style to our shores, all the time channelling her inspiration.

I got a new watch

It was my birthday the other day so I bought myself a watch. A big one.

Also, hi again.

She was the worst blogger ever. [Forever 21 comes to Dublin]

dublin fashion blog

Sorry, I’ve been the worst wordpress based girlfriend ever. I’ve been preeety busy trying to keep my hat on through the proverbial storm and do more workie work (the stuff what pays the bills). However I’ll be doing my bit again tonight to save the world and bring images of me quaffing free cocktails and admiring cheap knee high socks to the masses (or at least to anyone who reads my blog). The Forever 21 launch is tonight, hot on the heels of New Look in Jervis (and indeed on top of New Look in Jervis) and saturating our green isle with more California based generic style, not that I’m complaining. It’ll be open to EVERYBODY tomorrow at nine, so break that piggy bank and get yourself there.

Ps. Watched Fade Street last night, I’m not sure I have words…

Weekends didn’t mean NUTHIN [New Look launch etc]

Few snaps of Le Weeekend, which was a very lovely one. Headed to the New Look launch in Jervis on Friday night where I bought a few pairs of boots/shoes and a little leopard print coat (see below). Headed to Pintxos, one of my fave tapas bars in Dublin, for a few glasses of wine with a mate and SURPREEZED Marko for his bday

Marko birthday surprise fest ’10.

Kicking leaves was a sport.

Went out to *insert name of somewhere near Renelagh here* for dinner at a mates and had a rare oul’ time kicking leaves. That’s what I miss most about living in the city in Autumn, anything you kick in town could land you in the nick.
