Hello world, I like ASOS. I’m starting to buy of them even more than I used to, and I love the speediness of the deliveries, the prices are usually quite good and their own collections are pretty amazing. So I was on a quest this week to find an absolutely …
New Lust Shoes; Valentino Rockstud
I have been coveting these babies quietly for quite a while and I finally took the plunge and bought a pair for myself. I know I may be a little late to the game with these shoes, but my life nowadays revolves more around a hyperactive toddler than fashion. That …
DIY; H&M Statement Necklace
Hello world, You guys are probably already aware of my love of H&M and statement jewellery pieces. Anything shiny and sparkly and I turn into a magpie for them! Well I came across this gorgeous H&M necklace a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it! But while it has great …
For The Love Of A High Top
Hello world, Something really rather strange and exciting happened a few days ago. I went and bought a pair of high tops with built in heel from River Island. To explain why this is so strange, let me explain to you my relationship with sports shoes. To be honest, there …
The New Love In My Life (Move Over Versace!)
Hello world, I was a bit of a bold girl today. I went and spent a ridiculous amount of money on a dress today and now I’m feeling kinda sick about it afterwards. But it’s justified, right? The dress in question is this; Yep, that’s a dress from the limited …
In Spotted Heaven
So this is a skirt I bought in H&M yesterday.
Now this skirt has a bit of a story to it. I first discovered it in work a few months ago when a lady returned it and we had a bit of a chat about how gorgeous and similar it was to the autumn/winter 2011 Marc Jacobs skirts. I packed the skirt away, fully intending on buying it later that evening, only to discover that we had none of them left.
So over the next few weeks I kept checking in store and some of the other H&M shops in the area, but there was no sign of it. I searched on their website but didn’t find anything, so I dug a little deeper and searched through H&M press images and archives; nothing. Google wasn’t much help either and the skirts I saw in Topshop were similar but it just wasn’t the right shade of green, the hem was too long and the fabric was blah at best.
I was starting to think that I had imagined the perfect spotted pencil skirt and everytime I saw a Marc Jacobs skirt from which it was inspired by, I kept thinking but that’s not my skirt!
A few months passed and yesterday I was browsing through a H&M store on Regent street, looking for nice underwear when I spotted (geddit?) my skirt on the last chance to buy rail in my size! I stared at the thing in wonderment, free cookie the staff had been handing out earlier nearly falling out of my mouth. But I thought I had imagined that skirt? I quickly tried it on and realised it was even more perfect on than it had been in my imagination.
So that is how I finally came across my perfect skirt. On closer examination you can see that it’s made from a thick woven viscose that’s perfect for the cold winter months and the spots are sown on top of the fabric, giving a really nice 3D texture. Not to mention the lining is in a bright tangerine colour that I really wish you could see more of, as it contrasts so nicely with the forest green.
What do you think of it? I can’t wait to shoot it for a ‘Look of the Day’, once I have a shoot idea for it.
P.S. Got the Christmas party tonight. I was originally going to wear the Versace dress I got, but since I have the perfect skirt now, should I wear that instead? Let me know what you think.
My Versace for H&M dress, a week late.
Hello world, I wanted to share with you my purchase I got today and the story behind it. As you can tell by the picture it’s a Versace for H&M dress from the collection that was launched last Thursday. I work part-time in H&M, for those of you not in …
Irish Tatler editorial shoot outfit
Hello world, This is the outfit I wore to Wednesday’s shoot for Irish Tatler. It was an exhausting day because I only arrived back home from London at like midnight the night before and had to get up early the next day. I also thought I’d show you what I …
Another pretty little find from Penneys

New lust item – River Island red shredded maxi dress
Hello world, I am in love! Not with any boy but with a dress I found in work today, hidden among the ‘Last Chance to Buy’ rail where no-one spotted it. This picture I pulled of the River Island website really doesn’t do it justice, but trust me it looks …
