Zoe Kravitz- a quiet icon.

Zoe Kravitz- a quiet icon.

 

Hipster, elegance, class and attitude. Not to forget, a side helping of inherited fame. Kravitz seems to ooze effortless grunge and style.

Think boho chic, summer festival style. Dreads, leather, doc Martin’s and funk. Kravitz has it nailed. Having watched the entire series of Big Little Lies in one night I was Zoe-ified. Playing the cool, step-mom, doing school drop offs in kimono’s and denim pants, I was officially a follower.

Rainy Days

Rainy Days

 

So we don’t necessarily mind if it rains in Ireland, right? Not if the temperatures are up and spirits to boot. Why not put your best foot forward and rig yourself out in on of these bright and smashing rain coats?

Topshop Metallic Rain Coat.

Here are a few of my selected favourite rain macs on the high streets this week. I just love this metallic  longline mac from Topshop. It’s now only 48 quid reduced from almost 70!
TS11M07LSLV_Zoom_F_1.jpg

So embrace those rainy early summer days and get your fun macs on. With a fancy umbrella in hand, go dance in the rain.

Ruffles; love ’em or hate ’em?

Asos Ruffle Top

It’s a love hate relationship I have with ruffles right now. It seems it’s on every store front, on every shop corner on every current fashion magazine. I just can’t seem to make up my mind.

Primark Ruffle Top €13

I think they can at times, add feminine class but must be paired with the correct ensemble. Steer clear of any gaudy jewellery. In fact, it needs little to none. Same applies for milk-maid tops. A small pearled earring would do the trick.

Left to Right: Gucci, Chloe, Balenciaga, Givenchy.

In order of the above I love, hate, love, hate it. Why? I think there is a fine line between tacky and classy. Be warned!

Rochas, SS ’14

Interestingly enough, the above display was put on at Paris Fashion Week SS 2014! Fashion really does come in circles.

Tales in Black and White

Black; a forever classic.
White; chic.
Merge the two and you get a burst of everything.
Black & White
I put together a collage of some fun and chic black and white mixes.  You may get called a walking zebra but at least you are a stylish one. Check out this cute shirt from Cos; a non bank-breaker, ladies!

Stripped Rib Jumper

What do you think of this white on white? I never thought it would work but looks like this black belt has done the trick.

Buttoned Culottes 39.95€

 

What a stunning pair of white palazzos (below). I love the high waist with button-defined waist line. How flattering with the slash cut turtleneck!

Weekend Diaries

So can someone please explain to me why this weekend went by Concord-fast? What is with that. And Monday will be a drag. So I’m going to preserve what little time I have here and enjoy my Sunday drippings with some fashion fixes.
Below, I have put together a mix of some cute pastel sleepwear. I just love silky slips, don’t you?
I put together this collage below of some fun and funky bright colours. Mustard has seriously been on my radar for the past couple of weeks. I’ve paired it with bold black to take one in to a nice chic Sunday evening. (Just in case you had some last minute dates or nightcaps to attend)

Spring Hits Cos

Sweatshirt Dress with Sleeve Pleats

I am just in LOVE with the new COS Selection. I cannot seem to get enough of their loose, lighty pastel and neutral shades. Grant it it’s not ideal weather right now but give it time and soon you will be dusting off your favourite sandals from the bottom of your attic trunk. Here are a few of my picks from the current store stock.

Layered Wrap-over Blazer

I am all over the floral prints these days especially when it come to a good trouser suit. With the shadows of St. Patrick’s Day lingering still what’s wrong with a good green? Echo the saint with this stunning 2 piece.

Tailored Jacquard Coat and Pants.

 

Let’s bear in mind that there is still snow in forecast this weekend so why not treat yourself to this beautiful padded quilt jacket. Perfect for layering your favourite cashmere cardi under or teddy bear coat over. My name’s on that I one!

Francoise Hardy in Black & White

ecde9a6ccfe7d4b7b0f830860abf1cc7.jpg

Francoise Hardy

From the 9th arrondissement in Paris did this trendy young one emerge in 1944. Born for the polo neck and head scarves was she.

images-4.jpg

A long time inspiration for Paco Rabanne, Isabel Marant and the modern Alexa Chung, her style is super, effortless and trendy as.

Packing for my trip to Morocco tomorrow, I’m sneaking some inspo from her portfolio. What’s your favourite look?

MFW- 2017 Feb

“Let’s show the world that the fashion community is united and fearless,”- Angela Missoni

27tmag-milan-slide-E7V5-jumbo.jpg

Amongst this mess of a political world we seem to find ourselves caught up in this past year, what a nice refreshing statement to hear. Colours, pussy cat hats and more colorus for Milan We likey!

KIM_0845.jpg

Salvatore Ferragamo

Beautifully, sleek cut, long, dove- grey silhouettes were presented to us from Fulvio Rigoni for Salvatore Ferragamo. This coat dress (above) did the trick for me.

_LLL0137.jpg

A beautiful mix between American Military-style dress and Russian mufti, civilian attire. Makes it somewhat apt for this miserable, February weather that has decided to engulf Ireland this week.

_LLL0489.jpg

Stella Jean.

Sportmax launched from the Max mothership a groovy, cool, contemporary  selection of pieces with the strong ‘Run’ theme throughout (a somewhat appeared hidden meaning). This outfit below I think is a real stunner.

_SPO0520.jpg

SportMax.

Here is just a small few samples from my favourites of Milan Fashion Week last week. I feel it was sinful to rush through this blog tonight but I felt under pressure as wow, how quickly February crept up on me. Apologies if you were just getting in to this, but it shall be followed by a review of more of my picks from the wonderful world of Milan.

Guys are for Spring

I’m finally doing my next piece on menswear. (Phew). Short ‘n’ sweet, Ive picked an array of blues. Let me tell you contrasting shades of the same color is always a winner. Fling a little black in there for good measure (I’m easing myself gently in to spring!)

Et, voila…

 

l-4.jpg

And so the story continues with a sprig of coral or rust or whatever you like to call it. I’m seeing a lot of that right now for Spring/Summer season. I felt like being a little playful with the touch of leopard print. It’s probably the last of these furs for the year. One can just about get away with it for February.

 Below is my ‘Coolah Caley’ look which belongs to Shoreditch. Those of you who have been will understand.
Guys are for Spring

 

Oh and lads if you are reading this go easy on me. It’s not the easiest to write on your behalf but I’ll be damned if I don’t try!
