My wardrobe view

looks

I’ve been clearing out my wardrobe and trying to figure out what I should keep and what to give away to charity. And so I have spent the day perusing magazines to come up with some of my favourite looks for the Winter and I will try to match my clothes accordingly. I love the Alexander Wang look (left), it’s edgy but wearable and all I need to do is invest in a pair of statement trousers (similar to those on the DKNY runway, second from right). I also have two faux fur gilets, one from Cynthia Rowley and another from Awear which I got last year. These will look great over skinny jeans, cropped trousers or even a pencil skirt to give it more of a sophisticated tone. My gilets are more like the one seen here on Kate Moss (right).

I plan on dressing edgy this year with lot’s of statement shoes (animal print ankle boots from New Look) and leather jackets (I have two, one from All Saints and one from Forever 21). By having these two essentials, I reckon I can mix and and match without having to spend a fortune. Happy days.

Ruby Cotton – Try and Buy

Last week I popped over the mecca that is fashion city to check out the Try and Buy evening being hosted by fabulous Irish online store, RUBY COTTON. The site has an amazing selection of labels including Soma and Sugar Hill Boutique. I picked up a great Miu Miu inspired horse print mini dress and cardi to match (which I wore on Xpose, yet to air so stay tuned to TV3!). Here are some pics from the evening (including me with owner Laura). I’ll be writing up a full review of the site on www.styleisle.ie later this week!

In case you’re wondering, my leatherette jacket in the pic above is from Forever 21 and faux fur snood is from ASOS. What you can’t see in the pic is my FABOOSH thigh high black suede boots which I got in Venice a few years ago and I am so happy to be able to wear them again. Boots are the only good thing about Winter.
