I’ve been asked to contribute to an amazing project over the next few weeks which I am unbelievably excited about (more details to follow I promise!) and in preparation I had to do a little photoshoot street-style! So I enlisted the help of the incredibly talented photographer Richie Stokes to help me out. Shot in the leafy and lovely Dublin suberb, Ranelagh, the pics take in just what I want my style to depict right now – casual chic (I will proudly say that I am attempting Parisien monochrome chic!).
It’s amazing how light, background and a little tilt of the head can transform the shot into something amazing and I got thrown right back to my modelling days. It’s a bit strange being in front of a camera again but once I had a few shots down, I relaxed into it and I am really happy with the outcome.
Top – Penneys
Pants – Awear (last year!)
Shoes – Zara (look like YSL Tributes but they’re not!)
Hat – H&M
Make up – Estée Lauder Double wear foundation, concealer and press powder; eye shadows from new season palettes available from Sephora; lipstick from new Italian brand Kiko Milan, mascara Maybelline.

I’ve taken advice from someone close to me that for a long time I should have been video blogging as well as writing, well here you go. On my holidays and a well deserved bit of R&R, I have started to document through the medium of video the looks I put together whether its to hit some trends or just some experimenting with my look.
This video can be seen in full over on my You Tube channel or here if you prefer to have a read of the blog while you are here. The look today is edgy with some layering, faux fur and accessorising with my new obsession, hats. Have a look and leave me a comment with your thoughts!

I left the house this morning feeling pretty confident that I looked nice wearing the following:
1) Leggings by Charlotte Ronson
2) Black vest from Awear
3) Black drape cotton cardi from JC Penney (US)
4) Thigh high black suede boots (a purchase in Venice last year, I knew they were a good investment)
5) Khaki Green military style 3/4 length coat from Penneys
6) Animal print beret from H&M
So off I went on my merry little way to the Dublin Festival of Fashion for a day of style and new fashion ideas. Little did I know it would lead to another great fashion victory (after the win at Cork Fashion Week). I wondered over the to the Ilac centre to take in the catwalk shows and have a meander around Debenhams (I needed to replace my bottle of Chanel Particulaire nail varnish). I was approached by a very nice young lady who asked me if I would like to enter the best dressed lady competition. Well I don’t mind if I do.
Low and behold at 3pm, the dynamic fashion duo, Sonya Lennon and Brendan Courtney announce me as the winner. Yay me and the coat from Penneys! I got a lovely prize and of course a great pic with two of my fav people in Irish fashion!
