Boohoo S/S15 Press Day

Hello Beautiful People ❤

I hope you’re all having a great Thursday. It is technically Friday for me cue the not so subtle victory dance. It’s been a hectic few days so I am only getting to do my post on Boohoo’s media day now! The event was held in The Morisson Hotel on Tuesday the 31st. The hotel itself is lovely and the room for the event was done to perfection.

It’s a Wrap

Hey Guys,

I’ve recently been watching House of DVF as I am a huge fan of Diane von Furstenberg. Since I started watching the programme, it has me reminiscing over DVF’s incredible creations for the fashion world. Famed for her introduction of the ‘Wrap Dress’ DVF has contributed massively into the fashion world. She has continuously remained true to her own personal style, strength and elegance and this is portrayed into her designs. She genuinely is a true fashion icon, whose designs will always have influence, long after they are created.

The Wrap Dress has evolved massively over the years and has progressed from just dresses to blouses, skirts and jumpsuits too. There are so many options for us ladies to now choose from. The wrap look is so flattering and can hide a multitude of sins. Particularly useful around Christmas when those sins are to be found in abundance!

Here are some of the best Wrap options available at the moment, all of which are pretty reasonable too. They are perfect for Christmas nights out, which will be hear before we know it!

Ice-Queen

Hey Guys,

This weekend I had an event to attend, one which was quite difficult to assess in terms of what to wear. On one hand I didn’t want to be too over dressed but I certainly did not want to be under dressed. Anyone who knows me understands how much I love to play dress up and stick the war paint on! It would be a cardinal sin for me to turn down an opportunity to get dolled up! I wanted something different and strayed away from my usual dark colours and opted for muted, Winter pastels.

Top €6.99, Necklace €14.99, Shoes €24.99 all Newlook Pencil Skirt €18.00 River Island (on sale, WINNING!)

Aside from the statement necklace, I kept my jewellery quite simple. I just wore my watch (I always wear a watch!) my Pandora bracelet and a simple band ring I have from Links of London. I didn’t want to over do it and take away from the simplicity of the outfit.

Needless to say by the end of the day I was nearly the same colour as the skirt, thanks to the good old Irish weather, but nothing a few sneaky vodkas couldn’t fix!

Hope you enjoyed 🙂

Best Coats €80 & Under

Hey Guys,

As the cold weather is now officially in full swing and everyone is rooting out their winter woolies, I figured I would do a scan of the high street and online stores to see what they had to offer. I love Autumn and Winter styles and I find a stylish coat can literally save you from not only the weather but bad outfit choices too. A good coat that is not too fussy and can be mixed with a variety of outfits will save you so much time and hassle when you can just pop it on and go!

Icy Hues

Winter pastels are everywhere this season, so a coat is a great way to achieve this look. These coloured coats tend to be great for occasions where you want to look dressed up but still keep warm.

€64.99 Newlook

Quilted

Quilted Jackets are guaranteed to last you through each Winter, they are not something that is ever going to go out of style. Perfect for keeping you extra snug too!

Both €80.00 River Island

The Boyfriend Coat

The boyfriend coat is one of the biggest trends this season. They are super flattering especially for those days your not feeling the slimmest. They hide a multitude of sins, ideal for the yummy Christmas food that is already hitting the shelves.

€64.99 Newlook

The Trench

The timeless trench is an investment every girl should make. They will always be stylish and will add a classic look to any outfit. There are loads of amazing trench coats out there but this one is such a bargain!

Boohoo €54.99

Wool

A wool coat will not only have you looking effortlessly glam, they are also great for keeping you warm. A wool coat will be a bit more expensive but it is a good investment and will last, provided you hand wash or dry clean. It’s not one for the washing machine!

€79.95 Zara

 The Leather Jacket

The leather jacket will last you all year round, just make sure you chose one that fits you well. Great with scarves, hats & gloves for the Winter or paired with a cute dress on a cool Summer’s evening. If you are opting for one with a fur collar, make sure the fur can be detached, so that you can wear it in the Spring and Summer too.

Bershka €45.99

The Colour Pop

Stand out from the crowd in an eye catching colour. This cobalt coat will go with a variety of outfits and will instantly add a fresh appeal to any look. Keeping the rest of your outfit’s colours muted is key, nobody wants to look like someone puked a rainbow all over you! Also choose a colour you like and will get enough wear out of!

Forever21 €40.95

The Faux Fur

As one of my previous posts highlighted; faux fur is ideal for Autumn and Winter. A good fake fur coat will take you from day to night paired with jeans or leather trousers. They also add a touch of glamour to a Christmas party dress!

€74.00 Topshop, €69.99 Missguided

Collarless

Collarless coats are excellent for adding a feminine appeal to any look. They are extremely girlie and cute and are an ideal cover-up for an event. They are also a great work wear look, perfect for keeping you warm and stylish on your way to the office.

NL1

€64.99 Newlook, €55.99 Missguided

Tip: Don’t spend a fortune on a coat that is too drastic, yes that style may be in this season, but if its too extreme you may dislike it next season and where does it end up? Back of the wardrobe!

Hope you enjoyed guys!

Happy Shopping 🙂

Boohoo AW Collection

Hey Guys,

On Tuesday I was lucky enough to attend the Boohoo Mediastore_logo20140303080727_boohoo Day held in Lost Society, Powerscourt. As this was my first serious media day I was unsure what to expect. One thing I can say is, they know how to host an event! The place was amazing, perfect location and set up.

Walking through the dimly lit bar, I was greeted by lovely members of Burrell Marketing and Publicity firm and directed into the first decadent room brimming with fashionista’s thrawling through rails and mannequins of Boohoo’s AW collection. The room was magnificantly decorated with natural light shinning through the large windows to the right. Shining onto each amazing piece. To say I was like a child at Christmas is an understatement.

Each rail held the different trends to expect for Autumn and Winter; The Brooklyn Princess trend, Tartan & Checks and of course the Nordic range full of cosy knitwear, perfect for the looming winter weather. A personal favourite of mine was the Boohoo Boutique range, which has such a designer look for a seriously reasonable price. I personally love the Pastel colours that are present in the Boutique range (check them out below!)

What we ate

Sweets & Treats were found in abundance across both rooms. We were invited to choose our own Pick’n’Mix sweets, with mini cornetto-esque canapés served to guests.

What we drank

The second bar at Lost Society was home to the menswear collection and the DJ, we were treated to stylishly presented Lemonade and Prosecco with plenty of room to chill out and take in our surroundings.

OF COURSE, lets not forget the boys! Boohoo’s AW menswear is brimming with snapbacks, tartan scarves, graphic tees and winter boots. I personally love looking at the boys clothing range as I sometimes get a few bits for myself too, especially the hats and scarves!

Now that I’m after getting a sneak peak into Boohoo’s latest collection, I’m already planning my next purchases. I will definitely be investing in some cosy tartan and nordic winter woolies and of course embracing the pastel colours from the Boutique range. They are perfect for nights out and releasing your feminine side.

Despite the great prices, I can’t narrow down my wishlist so I think I need to win the lotto!

Happy Shopping lads & lassies 🙂
