I am Mourning



Needless to say I have trawled through the internet tonight after the gazillion postings and tags of me by friends on Instagram. The likes of ” Spits of you” et cetera et cetera, I simply had to repost.

The above is taken from vogue.com and it depicts the soft quilted sculptures by Pierpaolo Piccioli no less for the untouchable Moncler AW 2018. We likey.


The above is particularly appropriate as my other half has decide to up and leave for the US for a seven week music tour (grr). I shall carry on as I always do and throw myself in to my beloved fashion as a means of soothing myself and my tears (gulp). I choose this wonderful creation by Kei Ninomiya, from the Japanese Noir brand ( representing Moncler’s AW18 collection) as a reflection of my feelings for tonight. Noir, dark and sublime.


Not to end on such a morbid note, I have picked this cheery little cherry number from Simone Rocha as a pinch of sugar on my latest fashion note.  Having spent some time on my travels in various Japanese cities, lolita is the first thing that springs to mine on this little number.

Any thoughts?

Gorgeous in Five.

It’s about time I got myself in top gear and began thrashing out some fashionable thoughts. Here are some of my favourites I picked that you too can easily pull together in just five minutes.

  1. Here, I decided to start with the top half. Since my trip to Japan and South Korea several years ago, I have been besotted by the bow-tie collar. I almost threw out a ribbon I got as part of my birthday gift from John and Katie. I saved it just so I could add it to my crisp white blouses. Take this little Gucci number for example. may tickle your fancy. Here I paired the navy/red pussy bow tie with a clean white canvas.

2. Think SuperGran (for those of us ancient enough to remember) or Rupert the Bear. You can’t go wrong with a set of tartan pins.

3. Gals, you need that all-important bag for your trinkets. Stash your mobile, wallet, makeup and keys in what I chose as a top handle ‘Sicily’ by D&G. Unfortunately it’s sold out of Net-A-Porter but I chose it simply because I long for colour in my wardrobe particularly at this time of year.

4. Coming in at number 4 for a mere 50$, you can snatch yourself a pair of Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage sneakers. Aiming to mix old with new, clean bold colour and pattern these originals will tie the look together just nicely.

5. Hey who doesn’t love a baker cap? Top off your look with this fun piece of head decor from Manokhi. Lest not forget winter still lingers.


So there you have it, my five top pieces to look outstanding in this mid point of the month. I hope you can take a leaf from my lookbook.

T-6 .

Get your hankie out peeps because if your not quick enough, these hot cakes will be gone.


The big launch of the British label ‘Erdem’. The time finally came for them to team with our loyal street house H&M and launch a nail-biting collection of their must-haves.


Although not keen on Dunst’s ‘slumber-party look’, I shall aim for a few more classic-staple pieces to stare upon.


Who doesn’t love a good funeral-esqe frock, especially when its paired with the right accessories?1020-6.jpg1020-1.jpg

This dotey granny purse better be safe and sound in my closet on the night of November 2nd or there will be war! Nothing speaks elegance more than a clasp tie bag and top handle.erdem-hm-man-repeller-oct-2017_130_sRGB_300.jpg

And just to make sure I don’t get chilly on these cold NovemberIrish nights, let’s top off my look with a fur leopard print snug jacket. The bow is the makings of this, it has to be said. Without it, it’d be a plain ole faux fur, all exercised out on the street scene.1020-5.jpg

So November 2nd online and in-stores. H&M global. Let’s leave it with a snow white thought, shall we?
