My Fashion Diary: Part 2

Dublin Streets: Great Accessories

I love how all these pieces are put together. The great jacket, the big thick scarf, the hat and the tan shoes. It just works!

My Fashion Diary: First installment

Image
I have been keeping fashion diaries for several years now and I would highly recommend anyone interested in fashion to do this! Mine are filled with clippings, photographs, fabric samples, sketches and anything that I want to look at over & over!!!! As a designer, I am constantly looking at the world around me for ideas and whenever I am in need of some extra inspiration all I have to do is flick through these diaries and it immediately sparks my imagination. This is the first installment of my fashion diary but there will be lots more to come!! I hope you enjoy :)

My Perfect Shoe: Christian Louboutin Duvette

Image
When I first laid my eyes on this stunning pair of Louboutin Duvettes I knew they would one day be mine!! Well that day is yet to come but I still want them as much as ever. I love the white and beige two tone, perfect length lengthening shades that will go with a multitude of colors!! I WANT I WANT I WANT...and they come in black too:)

A Flash of Fun

Image
This look is really not my personal style and to be honest i could never pull it off but on this girl it looks great! The floral tights are youthful and fun, while the long stripey gloves suit the bracelet length sleeve of the coat. Cute!

My Must Have Designer: Peter Jensen

Image
I have been buying Peter Jensen pieces for about 8 years now and I still get that unbearable hunger when I think of his new collections being released!! This Christmas I lived in his gorgeous Polar Bear jumper whereas during the summers I wear his gorgeous light jersey dresses, perfect with flats or heals.

I desperately want this white dress!!! So wearable, quirky and sexy. I love it! Peter Jensen keep doin what you're doin.

Buy Peter Jensen on ASOS.COM or if you're visiting Dublin pop into Dolls Boutique on Clarendon Street where they always have a few great Peter Jensen pieces. www.peterjensen.co.uk

My favourite newcomer: Lea Michele from Glee

Image
Lea Michele, one of the stars of Glee, looked stunning as she stepped onto the red carpet at the Golden Globes wearing Oscar de la Renta & at the Fox All Star Party in a gorgeous Izaac Mizrahi minidress.

Mothers Bag

Image
I had to run the full length of the arrivals hall to catch this girl and I'm delighted I did!! Her bag was such a great print and turned out it was her moms, vintage maybe. I loved her hat and jacket, very easy and adorable. My one regret is that I didn't get a photo of the man she was with! He was equally gorgeous and stylish...next time I'll grab my opportunity.

Fiery Red hair is Brilliant in Blue

This is such a great look! The stunning fiery red hair is complimented to perfection by the different shades of blue and the gorgeous colour of the boots.

Fabulous 50's Fur @ Dublin Airport

I thought this girl looked fantastic! She said she was hungover but I thought she looked fresh faced and stylish. I'd love to look this good when I'm straight off a flight and hungover.

I want, I want, I want: Chanel

Cycle chic: Its all about the hair

Great Print

This dress jumped out of the crowd at me. Great print, length and movement. Love the vintage feel to the whole outfit and the boots.

I love the simplicity of this Giambattista Valli dress. Timeless, elegant and chic. Audrey Hepburn springs to mind.
