Fire

IMG_4150

On my last evening spent in Dublin, My Family and I went to Fire Restaurant at the Mansion House. 
I absolutely fell in love with this place. From the spectacular gardens, to the intricate architecture of the interior and most importantly the unbelievably delicious food. It is safe to say that this is now one of my favourite restaurants in the Capital City.
As it was a particularly cold April night, I avoided my usual evening attire of a dress or skirt and opted for leggings and a cream and black tuxedo jacket. (also seen here) I accessorised the look with Christian Louboutin 25th Anniversary edition stilettos which are a balancing act in themselves as the heel is incredibly high. When it comes to shoes however, my motto is "Pride feels no pain" and a heel can never be too high especially when bearing a red sole!
I topped off the look with a patent Chanel Maxi Flap handbag which added a touch of understated elegance to the outfit.
Hope you like!

Shes a Rock Chick

IMG_4020

I am a huge fan of the "Rock Chick" look and when I want to be comfortable yet stylish, for me, it is the perfect choice. I chose this look for day two of my trip to Dublin which consisted of... surprise surprise... shopping! 
I am in love with this leather jacket from the Versace for H&M first collection and I wear it with anything and everything. The fact that it has both silver and gold studs, means it can go with almost every look whether I'm in a mood to match or mis-match. The latter is evident in this look, with gold on my bodysuit and jewellery and silver on my handbag and boots. 
The key feature of this ensemble was the Ray-Ban "Wayfarer" Sunglasses which I bought earlier that day. They are the epitome of Casual Chic and a necessity in any "Rock Chicks" wardrobe!
Enjoy!

Birthday Celebrations

IMG_3878

Last week I celebrated my twenty - ... well I celebrated my birthday! I'll keep the age under wraps as someday I might wish to pretend I am 30 when I am really turning 50.
To mark the occasion, my Mother and I took a trip to Dublin to visit my Brother. It was a lovely few days relaxing, shopping, dining out and dressing up.
As per usual I clearly over packed for the trip as you will see from the picture below. When I have the luxury of having the car with me, I tend to fill it up with everything I can fit "just incase". 
We stayed at the stunning "Westbury Hotel" on Dublin's Grafton St. and on arrival to our room I was delighted to have been left some birthday cupcakes and a card from the manager and staff. Just one of their many luxurious touches to make your stay an enjoyable one.
To travel the four hour journey to Dublin from Donegal I chose a very easy-to-wear outfit of a stretch pencil skirt and t-shirt from River Island, with my "Chiara Ferragni" biker boots which I wear everywhere when I need to be comfortable. (Like here)
As you may have noticed, one of my favourite places to shop is River Island. I absolutely love their clothes  and the fact that they are so reasonably priced means I can wear something new everyday without guilt. I just love mixing high street with key designer items, in this case my Balenciaga "partime" bag which I feel pulls the whole outfit together. You definitely do not need to be head-to-toe in designer to look stylish and that Ladies and Gents, is a mantra to stick by, whether its Primark or Prada you can always look your best.

This is also my 50th blog post on "The Sequin Cinderella". Thank you to all my followers and Supporters!  
I hope you have enjoyed each and every one! Heres to the next 50!
