Oriental influences have been splashed across designer catwalks this season, and this blouse from Zara has a fine china blue theme. The tree print reminds me of the old willow tree love story pottery print, and the blouse itself has pockets in all the rights places to hide your decolletage modesty. My black clutch is an old Penney's reliable too.
I have had a lot of requests about where my flower sandals are from and I'm the bearer of bad news to tell you that they are no longer available. I bought them in River Island Liverpool three years ago after spotting them online.
The design encompasses three neon plastic flowers on the front along with a scorpion with diamante stones. They definitely are real head turners. Unfortunately, due to the poor finish, they are very uncomfortable and don't have any real functionality. The shoe is too long and in contrast the toe straps are too tight so you can't go down a size.
In other news, today I received an invitation to attend the Mallow Fashion and Design institute's graduation exhibition on Friday night. I love frequenting fashion shows like this as I love to discover new young designers and get a chance to meet them before their careers and price-tags sky-rocket. Also on Friday I will be announcing details of my competition in association with Finns Corner Cork.
Last but not least, I was featured in a style Q&A in today's edition of The Evening Echo! Here's a copy of the piece for my readers outside Cork and Ireland. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed the beautiful burst of rays we had today and made the most to show off some skin and your favourite sunnies.
Until next time Ducklings,
Love Vera Xx
