A couple of weeks ago I got a VIP invite to Galway Institute of Technology’s ‘Fashion Fiesta’ show. The show itself was remarkably put together by the fashion students (see their blog here) and it was great to see such innovative fashion. It was a very fun and relaxed night so I opted for an outfit which reflected this.
You may have seen this varsity jacket in my previous Boohoo AW’13 Press Day post, between wearing it to the Press Day in London and to the Fashion Fiesta event, I have had so many people ask me where it is from. My father actually brought this jacket home from Chicago for me when I was sixteen. I love how original it is and I love how it is an authentic varsity jacket. I wore a cropped varsity style jacket in my shoot with Saibh Egan a while back (see it here) but I much prefer the oversized style of this one. I have always loved varsity jackets, and this one in particular, and love how they have come back into style this year. They transform any outfit and make it look very young and fun.
This skirt is also my newest favourite, I adore the asymmetrical style. A leather skirt is quite a staple piece, and I always love to find something with a bit of a difference, akin to this one. I featured this Céline Paris Tshirt in my April Wishlist, I wrote of how I was hesitant to purchase one as they have become so popular, especially with bloggers, and I don’t like to wear something that everyone else has. That being said, I really love the style and my stubbornness subsided as I gave in to the fashion fad. I got mine from Ebay and there are so many still available. I have had this Zara bag for almost a year now and it is such a great every day bag, it has a long satchel style strap and it’s the perfect size. I tucked the strap in and wore it as an oversized clutch. I love oversized clutches and think this bag has the perfect slouchy shape for it. I also wore it a a clutch for my feature in Stellar Magazine back in November. A grey bag is such an investment piece, it literally goes with everything.
Last week I re-designed the website and gave it a whole new look including a new banner and a re-designing of the side bar. I also changed by ‘pages’ title bar and archived all my outfit posts in the Personal Style page. I would love to know what you all think of the new website?
