The newest addition to the family...!

Take a look, just a peek, maybe a gaze...
I would like to introduce you to the newest addition to the family, the shoe family that is!

Not forgetting that I am on a shopping ban til Christmas time, I have not bended the rules in any way, I have just come to a mutual agreement - basic essential needs are viable options to buy, aka socks and underwear etc, and in my case, a pair of black shoes which I have been on the lookout for for the best part of 6 months.
These are a BASIC human right at this stage, the search has taken so long!

These black studded loafers are a Topshop shoe, black velvet with silver studs, and oh my do they fit like a slipper - comfort at your feet (no pun intended!)
I also think they are very Louboutin-esque.
Needless to say I am in love!

On Wednesday's we wear...PINK (aka red!)

I think it is about time I do an outfit post. Well overdue I say.
Given that summer has finally come to Ireland in late September, the atmosphere in Dublin city today was quite immense.
The place was alive with people, an abundance of ice-cream and smiles all round...delighted with life.
I decided to take in some rays and basked in the sunshine in St. Stephen's Green during my lunch and my was it a picturesque setting.
So guess what I did???
Took some pictures! YAY!

I was however absolutely roasting in my jeans but no matter, still looks ok.
Also apologies for the quality of the images, they were shot on my phone.

This is what I wore to work in Stellar today. We spent the day pulling looks for a 'geek chic' shoot taking place tomorrow. Lots of walking around, lots of sweating but I really enjoyed it.

A lil quote for the day...

So I am just a tad busy at the moment (understatement much?) and I will hopefully get around to doing an extensive post in the next few days.
For now I want to leave you with a little quote, one which I have listed as my favourite for a few years now, and I was reminded of its worth recently.

'Luck is when opportunity knocks, and you answer.'

Til next time...

A deal with the devil!

I'm baaa--aaack!
My sincerest apologies for the abysmal lack of blogging over the past few weeks. I have been super busy moving into my new house, where internet was lacking until yesterday. So let this be my debut post from my new humble abode, which is super cute may I add.
I have also started an internship with Stellar magazine so I'm rushed off my feet but absolutely loving it!

Let me tell you all about the deal I made with my best friend. Bear in mind that we are both addicted to shopping, no matter how tight the funds are - who needs food when clothes are concerned eh?
So, yesterday, she crossed over my new threshold donning a brand spanking new outfit!
Not acceptable, given that anytime this girl enters a shop she spends and exits with at least one item to add to her wardrobe (Like I can talk...ahem!)
We struck a deal - we will not purchase any clothing from now until Christmas!
Tough? Definitely!
Possible? Here's hoping!

In order to ease the torment and the temptation, I am adding to the lust list.
For now, here are a few pieces that WILL be mine, eventually!
Drool, adore, dream...these tantalizing treats will hopefully keep my shopping itch at ease until Christmas time.

Leopard print cape - Topshop
Gold boyfriend watch - Asos
Boots - Jeffrey Campbell @Nasty Gal

New Found Treasure

The past few weeks, I've been wandering around the shops, you know the same old same old shops, the old reliables, the ones where EVERYBODY shops?????
I want different.
I want individual.
I want mine!
I have discovered the hidden treasure chest that is Anarchy Street, and my, do they resonate my personal almost identically!
It's uncanny.
They stock retro-look, vintage-inspired, laid-back items that scream California chic at you.
Prices are not bad either. Fabulous jewelry and unique pieces this is going to be a definite stop shop for me from now on.
I think a break from the high street is a must whilst vintage shopping entices me and online havens meet my taste my fashion habits are undergoing a bit of a change.
Anarchy Street - a definite for the 'lust list.'

All I need now is an overflowing bank account and all will be right in the world! YUM!
