Hello all,

As if you’re inside reading right now!

Brightly coloured jeans are what summer is about. I like a pop 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.

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

Cheap shades are so much easier to wear. When I wear my expensive ones, I’m constantly having to check they’re still on my face. I think I got these aviators on a market stall somewhere. The TS dress and jacket were birthday presents, (well vouchers) I don’t usually wear faux leather, it makes you perspire. Topshop didn’t have any real leather biker jackets in stock, but I love this one, it’s a good compromise, I just hope it lasts alright. The dress is more than likely supposed to be Empire line but I have a short torso, so the elasticated part comes to my waist naturally. Lucky. The belt and bag are vintage, croc leather and tan leather respectively. The mock-stockings are a prettier more elegant version of the ones that have saturated the market. The suede KG boots are pretty impossible to walk on cobbles in, bit they’re one of the highest pairs I own.

Hey All,

I just thought I’d post a couple of pics from a night out in town last week; I’d met my friend at BT’s and loved the gold window Louis Vuitton display. But this is about the trousers, they are possibly the best bargain I’ve ever found. Celine… €7, I thank you. Just to balance out the glamour, I styled them with Penney’s / Primark wedges and an H&M top. They’re definitely my favourite thing in the wardrobe right now and I’m delighted that we’re heading into Autumn. I won’t be wearing them too much this year; pale trousers and Dublin rain are not the best of friends, but they’re classic enough that I’ll be able to wear them next spring/summer instead.

Denim, plaid, leather; a sure-fire gig-going outfit. I always get comments when I wear high heels to gigs though, my reasoning is that I can see the stage better when I’m 6ft than when I’m 5’7″. Plus no-body would look twice at me if I was going clubbing in heels! Anyway, who cares? And as long as I can see the band, I certainly don’t.

Elvis Presley is a God. It’s official, no one can pull of head to toe leather like this man, not even Batman! In my own little way I’m trying emulate him by, erm, dressing head to, well, ankle in leather. The jacket done up looks a bit wrong but I reckon it looks a better open with a slouchy grey tee and some faux suede boots to match.
