I'M BACK!!! After an unexpected blogging break the past few weeks I now have a back log of outfits, posts, and fashion going-ons! Life has been a bit hectic of late between work and moving house and as a result I had to temporarily delegate my blogging time elsewhere. So expect frequent posts over the next two weeks to get us back on track until I make it up to you guys!
I had been asked in February by Xpose to join their nationwide 'blogger panel' after featuring in the magazine on numerous occasions in 2013. Of course I was extremely flattered to represent Kilkenny street style and it was so important for me to feature items from local shops in April's edition. Although I'm not a major fan of black in Summer time, my task was to style up 'monochrome' and I'm really happy with the tran-seasonal look I created using lighter fabrics and hints of softer hues. This look wouldn't look too out of place at a festival either (as I begin to scheme my Electric Picnic mood board!). You can find out the full outfit details here.
One of things I love about fashion in Kilkenny is the influence and popularity of local boutiques in contrast to UK high street chains domineering the city's main street. It really is the place to go to shop one-off special occasion pieces as well as browse the vintage rails in Shitterbug and New York Doll. I LOVE that! I've also welcomed the opportunities to get involved in the local fashion circle too and recently modelled for charity fashion shows. Building rapport with local traders and fellow fashionistas is so important as a blogger and I am excited to have worked with the girls from Shutterbug on this feature for Xpose. A big thanks to Alice for taking these snaps on a bitter Spring day!
Check out my next post on Thursday evening when I'll be sharing some exciting news about the weekend ahead! Plus I reveal my latest Lulu Guinness sale steal from Kildare Outlet Village too!
Until next time Ducklings,
Love Vera Xx
