Style Star: Halloween Special!


Happy Halloween friends! 

It's a Style Star with a festive twist today, as I've been busy taking in all of the celebrity Halloween costumes! I loved this look on Stacy Kiebler, who hosted a masquerade party in Las Vegas over the weekend. George Clooney's girl looks stunning in an outfit that is both Halloween appropriate and stylish at the same time! I love the dramatic black lace and berry coloured lips!

Editorial Love...

As we edge closer to November, and the party season, I'm getting seriously excited about embracing all things shiny and sparkly! This editorial in Marie Claire Australia recently caught my eye and offers perfect inspiration for the weeks ahead!






 Now, would anybody like to transport me to Paris to live out these scenes? :)

Friday's Fancies: 100!


It's Friday at last...we made it! I have had an extremely busy week with (sadly) little time for blogging but I'm very excited about today's post! 

The lovely Alison over at Long Distance Loving is celebrating 100 weeks of Friday's Fancies, a link up that encourages us to dream big and live out our fashion fantasies -not to mention offering us a wealth of inspiration and the opportunity to connect with lots of other like minded ladies!

In true Friday's Fancies fashion, I'm going for a showstopper dress today by Matthew Williamson! I've found the perfect clutch to match at Coast - it looks like it was made for this dress and I love the idea of mixing high street with high end! Sparkly Jimmy Choos add the finishing touch to this party perfect look!


Join in the party fun over at Long Distance Loving!
Here's to the next 100 :)


Have a great weekend all. It's a 3 day one for me and I can't wait!

One Dress...


Today I am mostly dreaming about this stunning Donna Karan dress from the upcoming Resort 2013 collection. It doesn't get much better than tulle and sparkles! Perfect inspiration for the party season ahead.

Happy Tuesday!

Weekend Style...



Happy Monday all!

I had a lovely relaxing weekend and it was nice to get out and about in the perfect autumnal weather! Yesterday, I wore my new Mango boucle jacket over my favourite black skinny jeans and as it wasn't too cold, I finished off the look with a pair of glittery bow flats! Sparkles on a Sunday always make me happy :)

Have a great week!

Friday's Fancies: Black Magic


I must admit, I've always gone for 'pretty' Halloween costumes, rather than anything scary! While I don't plan wearing a costume this year, I will be taking advantage of the event by donning a fabulous black dress. I'm in love with this pearl encrusted peplum dress, and I think the look could easily pass for a modern day Audrey Hepburn!

It's definitely the perfect party dress, from Halloween right through until Christmas!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Falling For...Cosy Cover Ups


There's no escaping the drop in temperatures this week, and the mornings especially have been freezing! With that in mind, layering up is essential, so here are a few favourites for keeping warm whilst looking stylish too! I love the dash of sparkle on the Reiss hat and gloves :)

Looks to Love...Mango Winter 2012


Mango is on top form this season, with a wonderfully versatile collection ranging from smart separates to sparkly evening attire. I've picked up a couple of gems recently, that I'll be sharing on the blog very soon! In the meantime, I'm loving these latest winter lookbook shots, made even more covetable by the stunning Kate Moss! I would wear every single piece!

Friday's Fancies: Leaf Love




When I think of autumn, the first thing that springs to mind is crunching in fallen leaves! So it's only fitting that today's outfit is inspired by their rich colours. I love wearing different shades of caramel and tan at this time of year, and these are just a few of my current favourites!

Falling For...Military Details




The military look is always on trend for Fall and it was particularly strong on the runways this season. Precision cut fabrics, gold trimmings and luxe leathers are all key to mastering the look. These are a few of my favourite pieces offering a subtle nod to the trend without going too soldier on it!

Runway Details: Paris Fashion Week


Fashion month came to a fabulous conclusion last week in Paris, and it didn't disappoint. Unexpectedly for spring, the mood was sombre and the colour palette darker across many collections, but there was also a plentiful dose of beautiful blush neutrals. These are just a few of my favourite feminine details from Lanvin, Chloe, Dior and Elie Saab. I can't wait to take inspiration from these pieces come Spring! The Dior bag and heels above have especially captured my heart...they are simply stunning!

Weekend Style...

Happy Monday all! 
Another weekend has flown by again! I enjoyed a night out with the girls on Saturday to celebrate a friends birthday over dinner, champagne and cupcakes. Yesterday, I pulled out my pleated faux leather skirt from Oasis (last year) and teamed it with a new burgundy top from H&M. I bought this skirt quite late in the season last year so hope to be able to style more looks around it this autumn as it's quite a versatile piece!

Have a great week!

Friday's Fancies: Marvelous Monotone


I love the idea of styling an outfit around one block colour, so this week's Friday's Fancies theme is very exciting! I've chosen everyone's favourite shade of season, focusing on staple skinny jeans and a cosy knit.A statement bag and sparkly heels take the look from casual to chic. I'd happily wear this ensemble to work during the cooler months ahead!

Check out more marvelous monotone over on Long Distance Loving


Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend!

Style Star: Ashley Greene


Ashley Greene is fast becoming another style favourite of mine (along with Olivia, Miranda and Poppy!) The current face of DKNY recently stepped out in this beautiful blush Donna Karan dress, hot off the Spring '13 runway. I love the elegance and simplicity of this look and I'm obsessed with her gorgeous glossy hair and immaculate make-up!

Falling For: Colour


Autumn might bring darker evenings, but there's no need to put your wardrobe in the shade! I love the rich tones that are currently hitting the shops, especially when worn against black. These are just a few current favourites that are sure to make any outfit 'pop'! What colour are you falling for this autumn?

Weekend Style...


I took a trip to Kildare Village for a spot of shopping over the weekend, wearing my favourite neutral tones. What can I say, I love them! It was a mixture of old and new as I teamed my new Zara blush coated skinnies with a pair of studded booties that I found hidden the back of  my closet! With studs firmly on trend again this season, I'm sure these will get lots of wear over the coming weeks...
