Who is 'Yucky Duck'?

Welcome to my first blog post! Let me first introduce myself. My name is Vera McGrath and I am from Cork, Ireland. 'Yucky Duck' is an unorthodox fashion blog username but my rationale for choosing it is simple. As a teenager there is no other phrase i can best describe myself than feeling like an 'ugly ducking'. I had no interest in fashion and struggled with self confidence.

Fast forward to my twenties. In 2012, I completed my degree in Occupational Therapy at NUIG. I moved back to Cork last summer, to a recession-strick health service and no employment. It was then I got a job in a luxury department store in Cork, working for a French fashion label. Think Devil Wears Prada. I was surrounded by beautiful luxurious designer clothes and glamorous colleagues who eat, slept and lived for fashion. I was well out of my depth. I had to learn fast, and that I did. Over the past six months, i have begun to walk the walk, and talk the talk. My aim of this blog is to educate my readers on all thing luxe and designer, and what key pieces you should invest your money in. Fashion is a language and I am your new tutor.

Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing with you my own personal style lookbook, trends training for Spring/ Summer 2013, and essential high-end fashion brands.
