Love and Lemons

March 18, 2016

In my years of going to Art college for me there were a number of key essential survival items. One was the high waisted Levi denim shorts that were way too tight, some of your dads oversized 80’s sweaters that just screamed student and a selection of cute oversized scarfs of course but no matter were you studied Arran sweaters were a must. Temple Bar in Dublin city centre was always a safe bet for a good night out but for me personally I always wanted something a little different. Every night was very much the same and a bit repetitive, so it was the only college trend I did not over indulge in. I am always on the look out for something different, especially spending some free time Winter shopping, I just loved it. For me there is nothing better than feeling snug and cozy in an oversized cardigan. For fashionable knitwear, I am obsessed with “For Love and Lemons”. Their selection of knits are a contrast between basic knitwear to over the top statement pieces. I feel they are to die for. I love this clothing brand for so many reasons but mainly because of the tailoring and craftsmanship that goes into all of their garments. Some of you may think they are expensive but for me having bought several pieces it really is money well spent in my opinion. This particular one in cream colour sold out really fast but don’t worry, there is now one available in a beautiful dark blue colour which is perfect. I know for some people its hard to consider buying knitwear instead of a summers dress at this point in the year, in fact you might think I am crazy but why not ? You will only regret it come September ! So move fast, sales don’t last forever !

Little Black Dress

February 10, 2016

Ask any fashionable lady what they love the most in their wardrobe, some may say a winter coat, others may say a vintage hat, but no matter what is their preferred clothing we all have a signature black dress. Black is a color that can do no wrong regardless of how you dress it up. I have several for many different occasions and I could not wait to wear this one wizard sleeve one in Mexico. Wizard sleeves are elegant, cozy and always a good idea. It’s so versatile you can pair it with knee high boots or strappy heel. I’ve picked out a selection of some of my favorite black dresses that can be easily rotated in your wardrobe from causal to formal. The key to having the perfect black dress is good quality fabric, a rule for any purchase. The dress must also have a signature quality that matches your personality. For me, I love my dress to be sexy but sophisticated and with its plunging back it’s the perfect fit.

Stay Lawless,
