DiamondOutfit Post: aLphAbeT PaNTs

Today I had a book meeting (YES! more on that soon). Anyway, I felt it appropriate to wear these awesome alphabet pants by Topshop (due in this Autumn/Winter) to let the big wigs know that if I stumble with my spelling all I have to do is look down for divine inspiration. I think it worked!

Tie-dye socks and leopard print watch are a must!

My hair was an attempt at the Hershesons B52 (cryptic, right?!) as demonstrated by the gorgeous and talented Maurice Flynn on a shoot yesterday. Did I nail it?!

The details: Jeans by Topshop AW11, tee from Gap donkey’s ago, Lanvin for H&M tux blazer, boots by Nine West, socks Topshop, bag Pauric Sweeney, watch River Island. Anything else?!

DiamondBleedin’ deadly Irish tees…

There’s nothing like a bit of Irish humour to make me smile, which is why these awesome t-shirts cheered me up no end this morning. With familiar phrases like “Ah Jaysus”, “Bleedin’ Deadly” and “Scarleh” they make you feel like ironic, a bit cheeky and proud to be Dublin Irish! The idea was masterminded by the WhatWillIWearToday sisters! Not nuts about the name-“Plain White T-Shite” (I think I prefer the word shit to shite but maybe that’s just me!) Still, I’d definitely wear one of these bad boys… What would you like to see on them? I’m going for “Give up your aul’ sins” in a proper Moore St Granny’s accent or “Gerrup Ouuvit” in a slightly strained, tracksuit bottom wearing mumble!

Buy them here for €15

DiamondI’ll have two please.

I do love a bit of wrist action and while a vintage Rolex or my Mam’s Cartier are the dream, this one’s pretty nifty too! It’s by Longines and Kate Winslet is the new “face” of the watch, imagine the hands moving around her face, how annoying… It’s €5,790 so you might have to skip a few weekend bevs but I reckon it’s worth it!

DiamondTalking to Lily Allen for Grazia

A couple of weeks ago I got the chance to interview Lily Allen and her sister, Sarah Owen, while they were in Dublin to launch their debut collection for Lucy in Disguise. The girls were both absolutely lovely, totally sarcastic and giddy in a sisterly way!  See the interview for Grazia here.

Collection available from Brown Thomas and BT2 (Dundrum) x

DiamondOutfit Post… rocking rusts

This rust cardigan/coat is my prized possession right now. I nabbed in BT sale at the weekend and have been living in it since, it feels Autumnal and graphic and very AW11 to be fair, oh yes, that’s the justification right there! Green mini satchel is designed by Grazia for River Island and has ace neon orange lining in there just to cheer you up when you’re reaching for the cash…The ear cuff is sourced by me beautiful friend Blanaid and deserves a post of it’s own but consider this an intro!

Cardigan, Opening Ceremony at Brown Thomas, jeans from Warehouse, tee from Topshop, bag from River Island and ear cuff from Shutterbug.

DiamondArizona dreamin’…

Not sure why this feels worthy of the Arizona title… maybe it just reminds me of the Erin Wasson, either way it’s gorgeous! Buy it here
