The Claws Are Out...

IMG_5133

I know we always complain about the cold Winter weather, however, I have to say I love the fashion opportunities that come with the low temperatures.
There is nothing quite so glamourous as a fur coat... (or in this case, Faux Fur.)
It adds an element of elegance to any outfit and makes you feel a million dollars, whilst shielding you from the hazards of the Winter months.
I matched this coat from River Island with a leopard print "Lipsy" jumpsuit to head out for a frosty evening of dinner and drinks. I finished the outfit with some skyscraper heels, a Louis Vuitton "Limelight" clutch and some gold accessories.
The lipstick I wore was my own concoction. A mixture of two colours by MAC. I first applied a deep coat of "Fluid" and finished by adding the brighter "Impassioned" which, when mixed together, created a lovely shade of deep red to add a touch of colour.
Have you got a favourite coat that you love to bring out in the Winter months?

The Spy and the Hound

P1010441

As most of my readers will know, I am a huge fan of leather. Be it a leather jacket, leather trousers, or in this case a leather dress. I just cannot get enough of it, no matter if it is in fashion or totally out, my love for it remains.
For this outfit I brightened up the black leather with a houndstooth check blazer from River Island. This was another trend that I was delighted to see returning to the shelves. 
It is such a classic print yet River Island have given it a modern edge. 
I also bought the dress to match this jacket which I will show you in another post... I may love the print but wearing two items together would be total overkill!
I completed the look with one of my favourite handbags of all time, the Fendi Spy Bag.
I just love the shape of it and the hidden pouch for your lipstick is such a cute little extra!
Sherlock Holmes eat your heart out...

The Late Late Show

IMG_9881

For any of you Irish folk out there, I am pretty sure you have heard of the "Late Late Show", for anyone who isn't from Ireland it is one of the most famous chat shows ever to hit Irish T.V. screens.
I have watched this show since I was little and was overwhelmed with excitement when my Mother got tickets for her, Myself and my Brother to go along and be a part of the audience.
My excitement was further enhanced when I was asked to take part in the show live on T.V. by playing their audience game. I was shown photographs of famous celebrities and had to guess who was the youngest. Thankfully I got all of the questions correct and won a prize of a selection of Dr. Hauscha beauty products for everyone in the Audience.
Now I have difficulty enough deciding what to wear every day so you can imagine the trouble I went to trying to decide what to wear, knowing that this show would be broadcast into almost every sitting room in Ireland. I finally settled on this leopard print sequin jacket from Arrogant Cat which I picked up several years ago in London. I kept the rest of the outfit relatively simple with black and gold but topped it all off with a leopard print Jimmy Choo "Mandah" handbag!
By total coincidence, the day that we had the tickets for the show just happened to be the day that the triumphant Donegal GAA team, who had won the Sam Maguire cup were appearing on the show. Being from Donegal ourselves it was an added bonus to be there to join in with their celebrations, I was even lucky enough to speak with Manager Jim McGuinness, some of the team members and hold the famous "Sam Maguire Cup".
A perfect end to a perfect evening!
Enjoy!
