Hail Mary!

Thank you to everyone for their kind wishes in regards the Lulu Guinness collaboration for the upcoming fashion week. I am beyond excited and busy organising myself and planning my outfit for the designer of the year show taking place on the 5th of October. Choosing what to wear is particularly tricky as I have so many ideas and looks in mind and of course NOTHING in my wardrobe good enough for it.

I apologise that I didn't do this particular post sooner. I had intended on retaking the photos (as they were taken a little off the cuff one Saturday night) but I had been sick last week and the thought of getting dressed up with no where (I could) go really just didn't appeal.

Green cami: River Island
Bag: DVF
Sandals: Penneys / Primark
Necklace: Zara

I am in particular love with the 'stained glass' Autumn / Winter trend, pushed by designers Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen this year, although I haven't seen it trickle down to the high street quite yet. I was delighted to see this 'Angel of Gabrielle like' body-con skirt from Romwe and for €22 (and FREE delivery) I won't lose much sleep if the nun in me gets bored of this fad. A downside however, is its 'one size' sizing which realistically only fits gals who are a UK 8-10.

Another huge trend is the regal influence, with crowns & crosses in abundance on the high street especially Topshop, and I could not resist this trendy bird ear cuff from Zara for €15. No need for a double piercing as the piece stays in place with a clip attaching over the upper ear. Did it hurt? HELL YEAH! But after a few bevies and dances, who was to notice the burning pain from my feet and my pulsating ear, hiding a bright red colour in appearance under the diamante stones.

Make sure you check me out on Instagram over the next week as I prep for fashion week! In the meantime, I'm off to say a few hail Mary's for this blaspheming post!

Until next time Ducklings,
Love Vera Xx
