Mallow College of Design & Tailoring - Fashion Show 2015

I was delighted to have been invited to the Mallow College of Design fashion show for a second year in a row! How are lucky am I!!! Thanks to my friend Gina for making this possible.

If you already follow my blog you'll know that I am obsessed with bright colours, crop tops and funky jackets. This show had just that. The wine peplum jacket was my absolute favourite! It wasn't your average high-street peplum cut, this had gorgeous gathered ruffles and a waist belt. This type of cut is very clever as it creates an illusion of a cinched in waist, which gives beautiful curves. Personally, I would style this jacket with a clashing colour waist belt like Turquoise Blue to draw even more attention to the waistline. It reminded me of a recent photo that Beyonce posted on her Instagram, she was wearing a similar cut jacket with a tribal print and it was such a great fit.

Another one of my favourite pieces was the green and white cape. It was such a statement piece and the colour combination was out of this world. The photo doesn't do it much justice but there was a lot of uhh's and ahhh's when the model stepped out in it.

You can't go wrong with a crop top and skirt combo...well...in my eyes anyway :)

The floral detail was insane! The top was perfect but if I were to wear the skirt, I would have it fitted like a pencil skirt as that would be more suited to my body shape.

I am looking forward to see what next year brings already!

Happy Shopping :)

Love, B

Oasis SS 2015 Press Day

So, as some of you guys may know February is the month when boutiques make their final clear outs to make way for new collections for the coming months. I was so excited to have been invited to the Oasis Press Day SS 2015 to preview their upcoming collections.

As I was about to walk into the store, the window display caught my eye. I mean...check out those colours...how incredible!

Main window display
Once I saw this I knew I was in for a treat! The floral prints and bright colours were definitely a dominant feature throughout the collections. For me, that was a great move as Oasis is known for their floral prints and it just felt very consistent.


The detail on these pieces is on another level. A lot of the fabric used felt quite light, which is great for the Summer if we are lucky enough to have the weather :)

I also couldn't get enough of the crop tops and shirts. I always find that crop tops give my outfits an edge. The cuts were incredible and not as skimpy as people may think, therefore can be worn by the young and mature.

Cork Fashion Week 2014

What an amazing beginning to the month! To be featured on the front page of the Evening Echo with Claire Garvey is just insane. I was not expecting it at all and it was an incredible surprise. The editor asked me to write a piece for Cork Fashion Week and I was so excited that she chose me to do it. The piece includes some of my personal experiences with fashion and how Cork Fashion Week has helped me overcome them. 

I hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you thought of the piece :)

Love, B
