Sustainable fashion is on the rise, and with it comes the excitement of buying pre-loved vintage items and designer goods for a fraction of their original price. 

If you're like us, and are gagging to update your wardrobe with high-quality, classic designer pieces for good value for money, we have the exact store for you.

With the fashion industry being the world’s second-largest polluter, just after oil, our shopping habits desperately need to change. Fashion has impact, that's for sure.

The Wardrobe Kilkenny is a designer consignment store which stocks everything from designer bags and accessories to complete outfits from high-end labels for an affordable price.

Their business has been promoting sustainable fashion for over 20 years, and they're diligent when it comes to environmental impact. Getting dressed every morning has direct results.

Shockingly, more than 80 billion pieces of clothing are produced worldwide each year. Of these pieces, 75 percent will end up in landfills. The average T-shirt uses 1500 to 2000 litres of water to make.

The fashion industry uses 1600 chemicals in their dyeing processes, and only one per cent of these have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. Scary stats, right?

Shopping pre-loved needs to be a life choice, not just a trend. Buying clothes doesn't have to mean compromising on fashion, style or quality, according to Yvonne Fitzgerald.

Yvonne acts as the proprietor of The Wardrobe Kilkenny, and believes that shopping consignment has numerous incredible benefits. For one, it's eco-friendly. You're keeping garments out of landfill.

Another perk is that you can find unique items with a treasure hunt-type shopping experience. The thrill of the hunt is undeniable.

The same brands come at a lower price, it's like a permanent sale.

The Wardrobe Kilkenny stock pre-loved labels such as Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Brunello Cuccinelli, Bulgari, Dolce and Gabbana, Pucci, Alexander McQueen, Diane Von Furstenberg, Louis Vuitton and many more.

Even if you don't head down to buy something, you can sell your own designer goods for a pretty penny.

Companies like Depop are essentially doing the same thing, whereby you can run your own online shop and buy and sell items over the brilliant app.

When you have gently-used, unique or highly-coveted items that you don't use, why not sell them? Give someone else the chance to love your belongings.

The Wardrobe Kilkenny believe in the lifecycle of luxury goods and are always looking for designer items to sell on your behalf.

To get in touch call 056 771 5542 or visit the store at 29 Patrick Street.

Between now and August 31, if you mention SHEmazing when you consign your piece you can receive 15 percent off your first purchase. The bargains simply go on and on. Enjoy the couture, ladies.



Acne; it's a bitch.

I know, I suffered from it for years and the effects of it still haven't vanished from my face.

And, I'm not talking about one or two spots; I'm talking about parts of your face covered in sore, red zits.

It's not the most attractive, but why are we so ashamed of it when so many people suffer from it?

Most teenagers get spots, but 15 per cent go on to suffer from inflamed, troublesome pimples.

Starlie Smith, a musician and model, recently walked in the Dolce & Gabbana runway, and one eagle-eyed Reddit user noticed that there was just a sheer layer of foundation over her acne.

Starlie looked insanely gorgeous, pimples and all, strutting down the catwalk. And did her spots make her look any less beautiful? Not at all.

The Atomics performer isn't shy about showing off her bare face, and when I look at her, all I can think is 'wow, what a stunner'.

We need to realise that we go through these things in life, and no matter how much acne can get you down and put a dent in your self-confidence, it shouldn't stop us from being our best selves.

After years of treatments, creams, visits to the doctor and antibiotics, I'm still not 100 per cent happy, but f*ck it. I'm going to try to take a page out of Starlie's book.

She's in the limelight and I'm sure she has tried just about everything to improve the appearance of her skin.

But for the time being, she isn't hiding it and pretending it isn't there. She embracing life; she's taking major steps in her career, and she's not letting it hurt her self-confidence.

So, take some inspiration from her – block out the naysayers and know that no matter how big that spot is on your forehead, you can't let it get in your way. 

You're so much more than acne. F*ck acne.


When it came to Matthew McConaughey's Dolce & Gabbana campaign, he decided to make it a true family affair. 

The actor is the face of the new fragrance and appears on the front label of The One Eau de Parfum for Men. But he wasn't the only star of the photoshoot as his two children, Vida and Levi posed alongside their father for the new scent, which "celebrates the joy of family life," according to Dolce & Gabbana's Instagram. 

Matthew has been a brand ambassador for The One range of fragrances since 2008 and over the years we've seen him in campaign after campaign (clean shaven or otherwise).

But we think this latest campaign is probably our favourite yet. 




The world of fashion can be a minefield. 

The trends change every season, models are popping up left, right and centre and then there's designers names. 

While Burberry might slip easily off the tongue, there's a whole world of designers names we can't even attempt to pronounce. 

So, if you need to fake it in fashion, here's a little lesson of some labels not-so phonetic names. 

Dolce & Gabbana: Doll-che & Gab-ana


Herve Leger: Her-vay Lay-jarr


Hermes: Er-mez


Louis Vuitton: Loo-wee Vwee-ton


Marchesa: Mar-kay-zah


Badgley Mischka: Badge-lee Meesh-kah


Lanvin: Lahn-van


Moschino: Moss-key-no


Givenchy: Jee-von-she


Yves Saint Laurent: Eve San Lau-ron

Versace: Ver-sah-chi



Balmain: Ball-mahn




It is safe to say that Colin Farrell is one of the hottest actors, men, and definitely dads to come out of our fair Emerald Isle.

So, what better way to honour Father’s Day weekend than by hearing from the man himself.

The 39-year-old has two sons, James who is 12, and Henry who is 4-years-old. When asked what it means to be a father, Colin gave a seriously emotional response.

“It’s incredibly complicated, I find it, to be a father because I have no idea what I’m doing,” the new face of Dolce & Gabbana’s Intenso revealed in an interview with the brand.

“I haven’t read any books but I know that if I did they would just confound me even more,” he admitted.

“It can be a terrifying thing – but also there’s a great liberation in being a father… Because for the first time you are not the most important thing in your world. For the first time in your life you really have an understanding of what it is to love unconditionally. And it’s a pretty extraordinary gift.”

We just have dust in our eyes, we swear!

The True Detective star had his first child with American model Kim Bordenave in 2003. Mr Farrell fathered his second child, Henry, with actress Alicja Bachleda-Curus, but their relationship ended in 2010.
