leather jacket - dunnes stores
arctic monkeys top - camden market
black shorts - river island

introducing my "rock" look hehe I really wish I could pull off a leather jacket. I got this one for Christmas but I've only worn it once since. I really love these shorts, they're like a skort and I got them in River Island ages ago, I'm also wearing my Arctic Monkeys top that I got at Camden market this month :)

Pandora Signature Ring


ring - pandora

Last Saturday I got the Pandora signature ring as an early birthday present. I really love the size and shape of it and I cant wait to wear it when I go out. There is also matching earrings and a pendant so you can build on the collection. I only knew Pandora because of their charm bracelets, I wasn't aware of their other collections. They just released a rose gold collection which is really beautiful. This is my 100th post which isn't great for a blogger of almost three years but its still a milestone that I'm proud of :P

Christian Dior Autumn/Winter Haute Couture 2015

all photos from style.com
Dior's Autumn/Winter Haute Couture show first caught my attention on Instagram because of the amazing set. The structure resembles a type of greenhouse with pointillist panels suspended over a runway of purple astro turf. The collection reflects on historical moments in art by referencing impressionism, pointillism and the work of the Flemish masters. The exaggerated fur sleeves on the over sized coats references the famous painting by Titan while the white silk dresses reflect the focus on female purity by Dutch artists like Vermeer. The collection often sways between purity and sexuality. Dresses are cut with deep v necks and side slits that are held together by gold chains - which reminds me of the dress worn by Veruschka in Blow Up. Coats are lightly held together to create the impression of concealment and the virginal quality of the long dresses is thrown off balance by the injection of bright red, leather and velvet. The collection also makes a dramatic contrast between lightness and weight. White silk dresses are offset by chain mail and over sized coats are worn over flared trousers. I think the contrast between conservatism and sensuality makes this collection feel modern and dynamic.

Camden

last Sunday I went to Camden with my boyfriend, we arrived late on Sunday and unfortunately it was raining a lot so we just quickly went around some of the markets before having food at Byron Burgers, I had a green salad so I can't tell you what the burgers are like but I would definitely recommend their soya peas hehe
this is the view from our hotel, we stayed at the Holiday Inn at Camden Lock, it was really nice and super close to the markets
trying on some sunglasses in Rokit Vintage and apparently making a weird bunny face hehe
I bought three tops at the markets, I got a black arctic monkeys sleeveless top, a white top with a dream catcher on it and a smiths t-shirt. Ill probably do an outfit post of them soon :) 
I also got these records...
The Velvet Underground at The Boston Tea Party in 1969, I was super happy to find this record because I didn't know a recording existed
Joy Division Unknown Pleasures, idk I just needed this in my collection
The Velvet Underground live at Max's Kansas City, this is just a really fun live record. It was on my amazon wishlist for like three years so I'm happy I finally have it
I actually got these converse yesterday, I've been wanting white converse for ages and I decided to go for these low rise leather ones but I also see myself buying white canvas high tops in the future
I also went to see Amy last night. I thought it was really interesting and I found out some things I didn't know about her life. There was also some nice recordings and live performances. I wish I took a picture of her statue in Camden. I found out that we are basically the same height except her beehive gives her a couple more inches hehe

Racer


top - river island
shorts - river island
shoes - new look
purse - river island
bag - penneys

 I really like wearing this grey racer crop top, it feels sort of sporty which is not something I usually go for but I think it looks great with these high waisted shorts. It's currently reduced to €9 and you can get it in lots of different colours. I bought these little black heels from new look because I don't really like wearing flats but I also needed something I could walk in hehe I got a new purse from River Island and I really love it, it barely fits into the current black bag I'm using but I think it looks very cool so I don't mind. I'm going shopping in Camden on Sunday and Monday so I bought this big black bag from Penneys. I'm planning on using it to bring home some records, my current suitcase is too small :( hand luggage restrictions are one of the most annoying things about travelling. I'm really excited about going to London and I can't to show you what I find in Camden :)

Glazerr


top - topshop
shorts - river island
sandals - new look

hey :) sorry I haven't posted in ages, I got really badly sun burnt, so I went into hiding (I'm still as pale as ever now somehow) and then I painted my room which took a lot longer than I thought but I really like it. Ill take pictures when I finish wallpapering the last wall. Im becoming quite the DIY expert hehe I bought this top a few weeks ago and I really love it. Ellie from Wolf Alice was wearing the green version at Glastonbury, which makes it very cool. I've spent ages looking for blue denim shorts that fit neatly but I finally found these ones from River Island, they are made from a stretchy denim so they fit perfectly and they have cute little zips on the sides. I found this tote bag from The Blogger Programme yesterday. I got it ages ago but I lost it for a bit when I moved back home from Dublin. They also sent me these lemon flavoured mints from Peppersmith. Follow me on The Blogger Programme if ya like x

Blow Up


jumper - new look
necklace - topshop
denim skirt - topshop

I forgot I had this little jumper, I think it looks sixties-ish when paired with this denim skirt. I really like this necklace from Topshop, I would love to get some similar gold necklaces because I really like the layered look. I'm really struggling with my hair atm, it looks so dry and washed out. Does anyone else have this problem? I really don't want to dye my hair again because I've dyed it so recently.
