I absolutely love the choker trend at the moment, and am dreading the moment they come into Penneys and then everyone will have them :'( For now, they're mostly in topshop and a smaller selection in River Island. Claire's have a nice few aswell. But the best, most unique chokers are on eBay (like everything else). Here's my favourites all under €5 :D
I've had a good look around the shops recently and its definitely become clear what's in for autumn and winter. The seasons literally repeat every few years..henceforth why I hoard so much clothes for years and years!:L There isn't much in the shops yet, its like half&half end of summer stock and new AW stock! Crying putting away everything that's yellow,bright,and floral :( Colours wise: Red/Orange, Khaki (military trend), Burgundy, emerald green 1. Suede is the fabric of the season, where as last year Velvet was everywhere.. Missguided have done some suede skirts and i just cant imagine a suede skirt??Coats/boots/shoes yes, but a skirt? Should be interesting!:) 2. Tartan has reared its ugly head again, (tartan pants, skirts, tops) something I'm going to avoid yet again! Good news for anyone who invested in the trend last year though :) 3. Military was everywhere also, so lots of khaki green shades. Good news for anyone who bought an army green parka last year or those camouflage shirts..they can be pulled out again! 4. Metallics..silver&gold: Mostly seen in skirts/bags/shoes. **Tip for getting a coat for college/school.. get it NOW while there's a good selection not November/December when it's actually cold as they will be all gone! : Missguided;
I got back from San Diego on Saturday, and am absolutely wrecked since! Literally sleeping until 3 or 4 in the day.. also got bitten alive over there, as where we stayed had a balcony which we left open most of the time for air at night...covered! (so attractive) Unfortunately, some very sick individual stole my phone 2 days into the trip... (karma.) Luckily i've insurance so another shiny new iPhone is on its way to me :) Absolutely dying without music :( , and trying to contact people is the worst, I've never used facebook so much in my life!
I have a few nice outfits from the trip, but lack of pictures obviously due to the lack of a phone...
The bindi got another day out here, lipstick (new obsession) is Violetta by Mac..the most AMAZING shade ever! Not available in Ireland I don't think!
'Pressssssssssssssssssents what a beautiful sight' ♫♫
Shauna got me these for my 21st:
Mac quattro pallete
Mac Violetta lipstick <3
Michael Kors wallet
Absolutely weak for each one, the girl knows me too well!:)
This was definitely my best purchase for this holiday, it tucks you in so well, and so many people complimented it! €5 on eBay you cant go wrong! here :)
definitely buying more next year :)
The dress i'm wearing is a present from Avril, from Bershka :)
So Indiependence is all over again for another year and it did not disappoint! Fab weekend all round :)Definitely the people going to these concerts are getting younger and younger which makes one feel slightly old but you'd get over that :P :) I wasn't into much of the actual acts but some I did go to were: Public Enemy, Tom Odell, and Walking on Cars. I was however, weak for the Fruit Market and Bacardi Tent where there were amazing DJs belting out the tunes all night..unreal!! Slight issue is the phone charging though, battery literally went every night which was disappointing and led to the losing of friends haha! *** Also, going to San Diego on Friday (the 8th) so no posts for 2 weeks :) #gonzo ** Check out http://pinchofpippa.blogspot.ie/ a lovely girl I met over the weekend who just started her own blog recently :) Outfit no.1 Friday

These are definitely essential for a festival in Ireland, as it's more than likely going to be mucky :( However festivals outside Ireland i'd definitely chance cowboy boots/converse/knee high gladiator sandals or boots. I'd definitely recommend socks with wellies, I find cream or black knee high socks match the easiest, a little bow on the top is a nice touch! I got mine in New Look & Penneys last year, they were very inexpensive :)
Get these wellies and more different styles on eBay for €23 :)
These i think will replace the floral crown trend that was seen all last summer. I've already got one at Topshop and can't wait to wear it!
it was mostly Vanessa Hudgens who started this off at Coachella, her style of Bindi can be got on eBay for dirt cheap! 4 euro on eBay here
These are definitely a staple for festivals, and can be purchased everywhere and anywhere! I got a gorgeous pair from Bershka, high waisted of course for €14.99! The colour is just stunning!:) I also have an acid wash pair from River Island they cost €25. WARNING: do NOT purchase the eBay shorts I mentioned in a previous post as they are like a sack of potatoes. Nah, thank God they were only €4! I also have another printed denim pair from Penneys that were only €9 so thats definitely worth a look as well.
Sunnies are a really simple touch to instantly festival-ify your outfit..my personal faves are the round aviators and the John lennon round style sunglasses we've seen recently. Here's a few i picked out on eBay.
here's two of my friends Shauna & Jenny with their denim & checked shirts last year :L they can be worn on, or tied around the hips aswell..handy if your shorts might be a bit too short!:)
Some people prefer denim jackets oversized, I got mine in my usual size however, in Only for €24.95 reduced from €45!:) Its beautiful with acid wash going through it and a few rips aswell. These are in penneys too and most other high street stores. I like to roll up the sleeves aswell to take away that 'bringing me back to my childhood' look!:P
This post took forever :Z
