Outfit of the Day

It’s a sunny Autumn day in Dublin –  shocking, I know!

Today’s outfit…


The sun is beaming into my eyes! My dress is from Zara… I really need to find somewhere new to shop. My cardigan is from Penneys.

Jacket is from Forever21, tights are from Penneys

My watch, bracelet and ring are from the accessories shop in the Biosfera, Peurto del Carmen, Lanzarote.

Shoes are from Zara…I think!

I went to BITE (beauty industry trade event) yesterday. Click here to see some pics :)

Outift of the Day

It has been a while since I last posted an outfit of the day. This is mainly due to the fact that I’m usually rushing somewhere and also because I rarely remembered to take my camera. Not any more. I have an iphone now so I have no excuse!

outfit of the day zara

Yes – No make-up! Aaaaaaagh!! I was heading out for breakfast and decided that barefaced with lipbalm was the way foreward… what was I thinking?!

Anyway, back to clothes! My skirt, t-shirt and cardi are from Zara, tights are dark grey from Penneys, as is the belt and my boots are from Schuh. I’m just noticing how see-through my skirt is in the sun light. Makes me think about the fact that I wore this skirt all summer with bare legs, I was probably flashing and lady garments to the world :)

What are you wearing today? I love hearing what people are wearing. In fact some clever person asks that question regularly on my forum and I love reading the daily responses.

Outfit and Face of the Day

I just took these with my little crappy camera so they quality it not fabulous but thought I’d give you a little look. Spring is in the air so I decided to let the legs out of prison for the day.

PIC_1070I love this skirt and it was only €5. Yes, 5 friggin euro. Bargain! Thank you Penneys. The cardigan is from Awear, as is the white racer back top underneath. The butterfly necklace is from Penneys too.

PIC_1079Could there be a more ‘Amy’ pair of shoes in existence? I think not! I found these pretties in New Look last Summer. I love loud shoes, I do get funny looks though. Such is life!

PIC_1154And the face (whilst in PJ’s): Maybelline Dream Cream Foundation, MAC Satin Taupe on lid, Rimmel Intense under eye,  MAC Angel lipstick with Perfectly Unordinary Dazzleglass, Eyeko Big Eyes Mascara, Benefit Hoola under cheekbones, Bourjois Blanc Diaphane as cheek highlight. Oops, forgot to do my eyebrows.

Outfit of the Day (3)

I am crazy about ditzy floral print. I am so happy that it’s in style but to be honest I’d be wearing them regardless. I like throwing on a waistcoat to give more shape to my clothes. I am a UK size 8 but I am petite so I can look dumpy very easily. My biggest problem is trying not to get lost in clothes. I haven’t really figured this out yet. I think I’ll ask Anna. As you can see I am wearing practically no make-up, mousse shadow and mascara.

These are my best buy this year (so far). They are made from the softest leather and they go with everything.

Those of you who watch my haul videos will have seen this bag. This was a bit of a staple purchase. Although I’m a handbag junkie I didn’t own a very neutral one. I usually love unusual bags and this one is quite boring. For some weird reason I like it.

I have layered a plain Abercrombie vest top under my shirt because it’s friggin freezing! I adore this bangle. I picked it up in a crafts fair in Spain.

1.Forever 21 2. Bershka 3. River Island 4.Mango 5 Top Shop petite Baxter skinnies 6. River Island

This ring is a little big but I find myself wearing it regardless.

My waistcoat is from Bershka. I love the pink charm in the button loop. I’m all about the pretty details hee hee

Love this bag so much. Wish I had have bought it in green too!



I wear this braclet so often and it only cost €5. I love wearing it with a bold bag of another colour but similar strength.



Wow the gruaig looks bright in the sunshine!

Outfit of the day

amy_outfit_16dec09_01I bought this dress in Forver 21 whilst in Chicago. It was such a good bargain that I didn’t even bother to try it on. The fit isn’t amazing, it’s too wide on the shoulder, the seam on extends out. That’s what I get for not buying petite!

I have quite a long waist to I’m not sure if this dress shape suits me.I wore it with some furry boots and a cardi because it is freeeeeezing!! (I wanted to wear some ballet pumps but that would be ridiculous in this weather). I bought the boots in Claires in Chicago (Aurora outlet) for $21. I wish I had bought another pair!

Summer Maxi Dress

I have braved the Maxi Dress. Yes, all 5 foot 3 of me!  This dress is 2 sizes too big for me, as you can see from the picture it’s just dangling. It’s about 4 inches too wide at the waist which is not a good look for  me.  I need to go find one that fits well. It’s also quite low cut so I’ll have to be careful :)

I bought this is Next. I can’t remember the last time I was even in that shop before today. I wonder could a tailor cinch in the waist for me. Or maybe I should just throw a waist cinching belt around it.

What’s your thoughts on maxi’s?
