This outfit was one of those that came about when your rooting in the wardrobe and find something you've forgotten you even owned. I bought this skirt at least 6 years ago in a sale for €5, I never wore it because it hung very low on the hips and was very long, it was just very unflattering. So in the interest of recycling and revamping clothes I cut the bottom off and tied a belt around the waist to give it more shape. Voila a new addition to my wardrobe with less than 2 minutes altering and no sewing! Outfit details: skirt (customised), top (hand me down), boots (Aldo), hat (Topshop), tights (Primark), belt (handme down).
Everyday when I turn on the television or the Internet or open a newspaper there seems to be an extraordinary amount of terrible news; first it's the ongoing updates about Ireland's economy, now it's the news about Korea, and of course there's the constantly occurring murders, deaths, natural disasters, hunger, poverty, unimaginable violence...I wish they would just announce maybe one good thing a day, would that really be that difficult, just one nice piece of news? I'm not in denial about any of the devastating events that happen but I think as well as acknowledging the bad there should be some emphasis on celebrating the good. Everyday healthy children are born, people fall in love, get married, people all over the world achieve wonderful things and do kind acts for others everyday, many people are cured from disease and I'd like to hear about that once in a while!
Have a great week! xox

No Internet or television for 5 days but I'm back to blogging at last! Last year I did my own list of stylish woman inspired by Glamour magazines yearly list of most stylish woman. As my own style changes over time so does my style icons, hence here's a new uptodate list of my style influences! As always it's not the glossy glossy style that appeals to me, it's not about how someone dresses on the red carpet after months of planning and help from stylists, it's all about dressing in the moment, dressing for how you feel and your personality. Somedays all you want to do is throw on old jeans and a worn in tshirt and just be comfortable. For me it's the woman that do this and still look original that are truly stylish. So without further ado here's the woman who's laidback, casual style inspired me this year..
