Dublin Fashion is stronger than ever and this week marked the launch of Dublin Fashion Festival. The week long all things Fashionista festival will run from the 7th to the 13th of September 2015. At the launch, the fashion show gave us a very exciting insight in to what Dublin AW15 has to offer. I know the sun has come out this week but I have to say AW fashion is more my style. The fashion show did not disappoint showcasing the upcoming trends for the season ahead. Start saving ladies because if this fashion show was anything to go buy we will live in the shops this AW.
The fabulous Pippa O’Connor was announced as the face for #DublinFashion 2015 and personally I think this is a perfect match. I love Pippa’s style and her website www.pippa.ie has everything from upcoming style trends to Pippa’s own personal style. She really is a lady all about style and elegance. I got to meet Pippa on the night and she truly is the sweetest girl ever.
Now onto what I wore, the juicy stuff! If you follow me on snapchat (username katekelly1) you would have seen videos from the night.
The Floral Crochet Bodycon dress I wore is from an online store called SheInside, it’s American. It was the first time I had ever used this site. Their sizes are quite petite so I would recommend going a size bigger than what you are. Shipping took 4 weeks for me so I would also recommend buying a few pieces at once. You deserve it after all and the prices are so good. A blogger I love to follow is Martina’s Mark, she is always in SheInside dresses and looks amazing in them so I said I would try them out too. You can buy this dress online here.
My handbag I am afraid is a copy, someday I will own my own Lulu Guinness handbag. I picked up this red lips clutch in Aldo about 2 years ago (sorry ladies) but I have found a few sites that do similar bags. This UK site has some excellent colours www.thewhitelabellondon.co.uk.
My shoes, now these are very special to me. A very personal present given to me by my mum and something I will always cherish. As you all know I am girl who is all about the shoes and these do not disappoint. From the main man himself, Mr. Christian Louboutin has an incredible artistic shoe collection. I wear them with joy as you know shoes are for enjoying not just for looking at.
I cannot wait to attend some of the exciting events the festival have planned. Make sure to check out their website for a full list of all shops taking part in the Dublin Fashion Festival.
