Look of the Day: Mischa Barton in Alexander Terekhov


Mischa never gets on my best dressed list, but fair play to her for pairing up with my latest designer crush: Alexander Terekhov! Love this gorgeous retro dress :)

Alexander Terekhov's capsule collection is to die for! This is some serious East meets West glamour :)

Oddity of the Day: Byrdie Bell and her monster bell bottoms


Honestly - this look could have been so very fabulous! Love the top and color/texture combination...but what is up with Byrdie's pants??? These bell bottoms are so super flared, they need their own zip code....

Top Five Wellies or Rubber Boot Extravaganza!

This post is for those of us on the Green Isle who have wrecked our UGGs and other footwear in the past couple of days of snow (me being the primary victim). As I'm hopping over puddles of sleet and mud, I'm super jealous of all the ladies passing by in their Hunters...If and when I buy wellies, Hunter tall boots will be my first choice: question is which ones to go for? Below, I selected my fav rubber boots out there!

The Ultimate Party Shoes!

I die .......

Look of the Day: Charlize Theron in Versace


I love this classic black blazer with white shift dress - Charlize is elegant as always!

Trend Alert: New Converse


Check out these new Converse shoes, my friend Fran is sporting today! love the red flipped back.

Christmas Gift Guide part II: gift ideas for him and for her!


For Her


For Him

After my last post on Xmas gifts for Him, I got slagged off by my guy friends...so I'm rectifying the situation by making another post. I will admit that practically every idea on Men's list came from my friend Alvin - thanks man!

Also, since my previous selections for Her were more of stocking fillers, I came up with a new list of gifts for women as well.

Hope you find this useful!

Look of the Day: Caroline Sieber

I Want I Want I Want: Rabbit Fur Snood!

I never really thought much of real fur, nor do I have any fur items. On my last trip to London, my friend Line was sporting a rabbit fur collar she bought in Norway, and I was blown away! It's very similar to the one by Theory! This snood is bound to add extra glam factor to any coat or jacket! just putting on my xmas wish list for now....

New Vintage Boutique in Dublin: Horse & June



Selection of vintage box bags

Token Jewelry by Jennifer Behar

YSL Rive Gauche blouse


My friend Ann Marie and I discovered a really interesting vintage boutique yesterday. It's called Horse & June and is located on Drury Street Dublin. The owner, adorable Zoë Wong, told us that she gets most of her pieces from Paris and New York. She has an amazing selection of vintage Cartier box bags. I fell in love with the black Cartier satchel and YSL Rive Gauche blouse. Zoë mentioned that she stocks some pieces from the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union, which are rare to come by. There are also some very interesting costume jewelry pieces from Jennifer Behar's label Token Jewelry. Horse & June is the only stockist outside of the US :). Her necklaces are made from casted dressmakers tape and come in silver and brass.

There is something magical about Zoë's store. You can tell that each piece is selected thougtfully, unlike many other vintage stores in Dublin, where you see a hodgepodge mixture of quasi vintage items. Zoë opened on Thursday last week and I'm wishing her best of luck :). I highly recommend checking Horse & June out.
