Hit or Miss...

I'm going out on a limb here but I did not like the Burberry Prorsum S/S '11 collection. It was my most anticipated show of all the fashion weeks and I was highly disappointed! The reason being is that I think Christopher Bailey is still riding high on his success from his S/S '10 designs. As the saying goes "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". I just think in the world of fashion, it has to be changed every season and mixed up a little or a lot like McQueen or Galliano.

As I was flicking through the shots of the Burberry show earlier I was let down by each and every outfit. This collection was again all about draping and the statement jacket like all previous shows- Trench, Shearling, Aviator, Biker. I've seen it all before.

Maybe it's just the mood I'm in and I'll possibly change my mind but frankly, I'm a bit bored.

P.S. I was cheered up though by the model who fell on the runway. I always laugh when somebody falls, I just think it's hilarious!

Jason Wu...S/S '11

Wow is all I can say...

Short-suits, sharp tailoring, sheer fabric, ruffles, more navy than black!

Looking forward to Spring already!

If you have a minute...


If you love photography and landscape shots, check out this site: http://www.trishpunch.com/ or on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Trish-Punch-Photography/101375986590818?v=wall

I used to work with Trish and she always had a camera in her hand! She has amazing talent and has wonderful shots of all over the world!

It would be great to support her so if you could repost on your own blogs or just spread the word.

The Talented Miss Mulligan..

Carey Mulligan in US Vogue.

This shoot is amazing! From the location, to the couture to the black hat that she wears! It was shot by Peter Lindbergh, who is fast becoming one of my favourite photographers!

I love Carey actually! She is one of those actresses who has raw talent and seems to not just be in the business for fame. An Education was my favourite film this year and I'm looking forward to seeing her in Never Let Me Go.

Zara Lookbook September

Zara is my new favourite shop! I'm loving their take on all the A/W trends. Although the lookbook for September is very minimalistic and very black/camel colour based, I still love it! I did find Zara quite expensive in New York so I didn't buy anything there. Defo will be heading into the one in Cork soon.

Long overdue..


Sorry for the long absence I've been city hopping! London and then New York, all in the last two weeks!

*My favourite NY purchase are these shoes that I bought in Forever 21! My friend actually screamed when she saw them last night and didn't believe me that the weren't Miu Miu's! Love them!

I also managed to find a dress for my graduation which is on Wednesday! I'll post a photo later on in the week! It's exactly what I was looking for and I can't wait to wear it!

*I'm so excited that H&M are collaborating with Lanvin for a collection to be released in November. I can honestly say that I will be part of the stampede that day!

I promise to be better at blogging in the future! This summer has just been so busy!]
