I totally forgot to post this picture from red carpet at the Catwalk 2 Kilimanjaro launch on August 10th at Harry’s on the Green ( a project I am very involved with at the mo). I just love this blouse. It’s cream chiffon (very light) with a nice neat collar and is embellished down the front and on the sleeve. It’s so chic and when I saw it, it had Balmain written all over it, and before I knew it, it was mine.
I wore it with some black leggings from Charlotte Ronson which were a US purchase last year and were well worth the money. No shrinkage or fading. With something like this blouse which has some detail, I like to keep this the key piece and make the rest of look quite simple, so the focal point is the embellishment. The blouse is €72 from Warehouse, which you can purchase through www.styleisle.ie!
Right busy week…
I had the chance to style my first on location shoot on Friday out on Portmarnock beach. Competing against the elements is always hard, and to be honest I’ve become a little set in my ways within the studio environment. I feel safe, creatively. So with model Claire Tully, photographer, Mia McGrail, make up artist, Anne O’Donovan and hair expert, Joyce Clark Henry, we ventured to the to beach to do some great shots for the books! Using amazing pieces from Awear and Warehouse, we came up with some funky looks for Claire and to be honest, when you look as great as her, our job is very easy! Images to follow!

Yesterday Warehouse previewed they’re upcoming Summer collection to the Irish press. Whether you are hitting the beach or strolling around a city for your summer va-ca, this collection will answer your prayers.
Colourful prints, contrasting with blocks of white with some soft shades like turquoise thrown in, I fell for the range of trends and styles which will suit everyone. Chatting to PR and Marketing Director, Lorraine Pringle, warehouse wanted to not only hit the key trends on the catwalk but do so in a way that the warehouse girl can build a capsule wardrobe with key pieces for the new season. Lorraine’s favourite was the white suit, very Bianca Jagger which makes you want to relive the Studio 54 era! But it’s a nice alternative for the office too!
Maxis are everywhere and I like this great floral print one, it’s so Erdem. And to hit my desire for some colour, this bright yellow dress is an OMG piece. I reckon this dress could also last you to Winter, worn with some black tights, nice coat and flat pumps and accessorise with a beret, you can transform Summer fashion into Winter wonderful.
The collection has started to hit the stores now and will continue to do so over the summer!
If you want to see the full collection, stay tuned to www.stylenation.ie where I get a closer look!
