WHAT’S UP DOC?

Dr. Martens have long been favored by punks, mods  & ska lovers the world over, but the quintessential British footwear brand is seeing a phenomenal resurgence. Thanks to bloggers, fashionistas & celebs like Alexa Chung & Agyness Deyn, Asos has seen sales of the classic air-cushioned soled boots soar by 230%. Pretty impressive huh?!

Why I love them? They’re perfect for trudging through the mean streets of Dublin when it’ s bucketing- Converse not so much..Plus they’re perfect for rocking a day-time grunge look & much comfier than 6 inch heels- result! You even get to feel a little bit rebellious as you lace them up- just a tad!

They don’t have to be plain old black anymore either- there’s a style for everyone, even the most girliest of girls!;D

In summary, DMs are deadly!;P

MINTY GREEN FOR ST PATRICKS DAY;P

Mint green is this Spring/Summer’s hottest hue & just happens to be the perfect colour for St Patrick’s Day (obviously;P). Plus Pretty pastels are much easier to wear than a leprechaun hat…….RESULT! Team it with pinks & lemons to look like a delicious  ice-cream sundae….good enough to eat!;)

 

 

                                           

 

                                                                                                                                         

 

It’s not easy being green……but it sure as hell looks good Kermie!;D

INSPIRED BY…THE ARTIST

 

Get set to unleash your inner flapper girl as The Artist brings back the roaring twenties to all our wardrobes. Even with all the Oscar buzz & annoying ads (does it really need those awful ads to promote it?!), the fashion of old Hollywood still stands out beautiful.

 

Think fabulous fringing, cute cloche hats, faux fur stoles, dainty femine shoes, silk gloves & costume jewellery.

I’m gonna embrace the silent movie genre & let the pictures do the talking!!;P

 

 

 

 

 

                          

 

                                                                                                    

 

                            

 

 

 

& the star of the movie…Uggie!!;D

NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY DRESSES!

She's a headache from all the festive excitement!

5,4,3,2,1….It’s nearly that time of year again.  Get ready to fight your way through the crowds & kiss a handsome stranger at midnight (if you’re lucky;P!). Oh and belt out ‘Old Lang Syne’ with gusto!

I’m on the lookout for some party dress inspiration because, well…..you can just never have enough, can you?! I’m fast becoming the Imelda Marcos of dresses but I still want/need more! Anyhoo ..even though I wouldn’t usually be one for metallics & sequins, for NYE I shall make an exception. Start the New Year with a fashion splash, I say!

Here’s some pretty numbers from Nasty Gal, Motel & TFNC to wet your dress appetite!

                                  

                                    

                                                  

Happy 2012….now it’s time to party like it’s 2011 (while we still can)!!;DXx

CHRISTMAS JUMPERS;D

HO Ho Ho….& a fabulous Christmas to you!  Can hardly believe the big day is nearly upon us…soo much still to do (& to buy!).

This year it’s all about the humble Christmas jumper (so warm, so snuggly, so festive, so practical).  The most sought after are the ones of the “80s knitted variety”-the more garish & nafftastic the better.  Have a good search on ebay or a rummage around the charity shop for the best ones.

If (like moi!) you can’t quite bring yourself to rock those ‘retro’ numbers, try some of the alternatives below.  Still festive & snug as a bug but don’t hurt the eyes (result)!!;P

The jumper below was worn by Little Mix in the X-Factor final, with their names stitched on with glittery thread-adorable!!

                                                      

Turkey & Ham hhhhere I come!!;D  yummerson!

SHINY, GLITTER, DISCO SHOES!;P

want,want,want,want!!

Ever since models sashayed downed the catwalk in these Miu Miu beauties, everyone’s been after some glitz for their shoe collection. Perfect for adding a little  bit (or a lot!) of sparkle to your Winter wardrobe.

I’m feeling some serious D-I-S-C-Os coming on! With these babies on your footsies you’ll be bringing the disco EVERYWHERE!! While my paltry budget may not quite stretch to the fuschia Miu Miu cuties above (just yet!), there’s plenty of more purse friendly options on offer..wohoo!! Good news for magpies everywhere!

Beware: This particular trend may result in women the world over staring at their own feet….a lot.

…one day…….!!

PRETTY PEARLS AT CHANEL’S UNDERWATER WONDERLAND SHOW

Had to dedicate a little post to Chanel’s Spring 2012 show, which I found totally refreshing. On the face of it there was simplicity but delve a little deeper & the beautifully crafted fabrics were full of intricateness. The staging itself was just as it should be- a fitting background to the fashion that adds to the atmosphere & enhances the experience. Karl Lagerfeld delved the audience into a underwater land, the models reminded me of mermaid-like sea creatures and Florence Welch lent her voice to the occasion.

 

Especially liked the different uses of pearls (which I’m sure we’ll be finding on all the fashion pages!) & the trademark tweed jackets in beautiful jewel shades.

I better dig out some of those pearls….& learn how to weave them into my hair…may not end up with desired effect..!!;D

GO BARKING MAD FOR DALMATION PRINT!

Never thought Cruella de Ville would become the fash pack’s inspiration..but she’s only gone & done it! As designers have gone barking mad for dalmatian print…& while Topshop Unique brought all things canine to the catwalks, now the High Street is being flooded with spots of all shapes & sizes!

 

Leave them puppies alone missus!!

 

What’s good about that is of course…fake fur! So we don’t have to go to Cruella’s horrifying lengths to get our paws on poor little doggies! She was bad to the bone..wasn’t she??*shudder*

 

Good advert for anti-smoking...!!

I think  this trend is best left to accessories.. to avoid looking a bit rrruff *groan* ;D!

 

 

Personal faves are the Chelsea boots…I would be in serious danger of staring at my feet all day long!

Which Disney character will be our next muse?? Hmm, Ariel ,Aladdin….Simba??I knew those genie pants & that tiny waistcoat would come in handy..eventually!

STAR GAZERS!!

Starry,starry night....!

I’ve got stars in my eyes…How about you?!! The cute as a button print has been all over the catwalk ( especially at D & G!) & now it’s on the High Street too.

Designers are loving all things cosmic this season & now I certainly am too (thanks to a Zara purchase!).  Move over stripes..we’re all bored of you! Bring on fun,flirty prints!

Trousers, dresses,playsuits, underwear…just about everything has got the star treatment this season!!
