So, unless you've been living under an actual rock for the last few months, you will have seen the wonderful Chanel boots.

Pretty much any blogger whose anyone has been traipsing around NYC, Paris and Milan in these sparkly delights. 

However, for normal humans like us, boots costing €1500 just aren't realistic – as much as we wish they were.

Anyway, thankfully, we have the glorious humans at Zara, who always come through with the designer dupes we need. 

The high street brand are selling a delightful pair of glitter boots that are VERY similar to the Chanel ones. 

The only difference? The Chanel ones cost €1500 and the Zara ones cost €60 – a no brainer! 


Get these awesome designer dupes here.

You're welcome.

Last night, Hollywood's leading lads and ladies took to the red carpet at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the 90th annual Academy Awards ceremony. 

It's one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year, and while we're delighted to see so many deserving winners be celebrated for their incredible achievements, there's another big question on our minds question on our minds – what's everyone wearing? 

From subtle pinks to shocking reds, this year's style stakes were higher than ever. 

Here's all our favourite looks from the night.

Listen up! 

Festival season is just around the corner, and if the stellar list of line-up announcements weren't enough whet your appetite, perhaps a pair of glitter clad light-up wellies will get you in the mood. 

When it comes to festival style, the more outrageous, the better, and we reckon you'd be hard pushed to find a more appropriate item of clothing. 

Available on ASOS, the full-length boots come in bright sparkling silver, lighting up in purple and blue when pressure is applied to the sole.

Practical, yet perfectly on trend, you'll be the talk of the campsite as you stomp around in these bad boys. 

Plus, the flashing lights will make it easier for you're friends to find you when you inevitably get lost in the see of green and blue nylon. 

You can pick up your very own pair for just €23.65 on asos.com – but be quick! These larger than life festival essentials are sure to sell out before summer rolls around. 



Spring is one of the trickiest times of the year when it comes to style – especially when we live in a country that can't seem to make up its mind about what season it actually is

It's hard to know what to wear when a typical days consists of rain, snow, sun and sleet – but there are a few essential items that will work for all weather forecasts. 

We've complied a list of six essential fashion items that will make the transition from winter to spring a whole lot easier. 

1. Over-the-knee boots 

A winter staple that will keep you warm and cosy no matter what the weather throws at you. 

Pair them with skinny jeans or thick leggings in colder temperatures or flowy dresses and skirts when then sun finally decides to make an appearance. 

Black Suedette Cleated Over the Knee Boots // New Look €59.99


2. Denim jacket 

Consider going up a size so you can easily layer up during the colder months.

Denim isn't exactly the warmest fabric going, but when themed with a fleecy hoodie or cosy knit, it adds an edgy vibe to even the dullest outfit. 

In Spring, ditch the layers and pair with bright trousers or colourful tea dresses. 

Light Blue Oversized Ripped Denim Jacket // River Island €55.00


3. Nude jumper 

Let's face it, a good jumper is an essential part of any Irish women's wardrobe. 

Whether you're wrapping up for a bitter snowfall or just looking for some extra warmth on a cool summer's evening, a stylish knit is the perfect edition to any outfit. 

Opt for a neutral tone to take through the four seasons. 

Lexi Rib Crop Jumper // Boohoo €9.00

4. A classic trench 

Effortlessly achieve the 'girl about town' look with this wardrobe essential. 

Not only will a classic trench coat serve you well throughout the transitional period, but invest in a good quality piece and it'll remain an integral part of your wardrobe for years to come. 

Beige Longline Belted Trench Coat // Pretty Little Thing €42.00

5. Check trousers 

Chic, effortless and oh-so versatile. 

Finding the right fit for your shape and size can be a bit of a pain, but once you find that perfect pair, you'll be amazed at all the ways you can style these bad boys. 

Theme with chunky knits and turtle necks for am elegant winter outfit, or a simple cotton T-shirt for that casual spring look. 

Grey Check Glitter Tie Waist Tapered Trousers // River Island €50.00

As a Parisian living in Dublin, it didn't take long for me to spot the differences between my sense of style and my Irish girlfriend's. First, my hair is never done. Second, I wear a lot more black. Thirdly, I wear more makeup on a daily basis, but WAY less on a evening out.

That might shock you, but Irish girls are actually much more into fashion than us French, in the seasonal meaning of it. In Paris especially, we don't care that much about trends, what we are looking for is style.

As Coco Chanel herself once put it: "La mode se démode, le style jamais" (basically, fashion goes out of fashion, style never does). 

The number one rule of Parisian style (and probably the only valid rule) can be summed up in one simple word: effortless.

Parisian girls do not want to look like they put a lot of thinking into their look, either in their clothes or in their makeup. We like natural, I-woke-up-like-this kinda style.

Our favourite makeup look? By far, the no-makeup makeup.

In all fairness though, a Parisian girl can also spend hours moaning in front of her closet because she has NOTHING to wear. She is human after all, and far from perfect. 

What would really differentiate us from Irish girls is that most Parisian would go out at night in the exact same clothes they would wear during the day. They might go for a red lip to look a bit done but that's pretty much it. In general, Parisian style is quite understated and plain compared to Irish style. Think minimalist accessories and simple well tailored clothes.  

To help you tackle the Parisian look, here are some basic items you need in your closet. I know, that's a LOT of black. 

Now, have fun with the mix and match!

1. Dark jeans

The Slimmer, €110, Poco by Pippa

2. A boho blouse

Chiffon blouse, €22.99, H&M

3. A blazer

Cross hatch blazer, €29.99, New Look

4. A white t-shirt

Demain t-shirt, €50, Sézane 

5. A Breton top

Iconic marinière, €60, Petit Bateau

6. Black trousers

Cropped button pants, €35.95, Mango

7. A classic perfecto

Duncan perfecto, €290, Balzac Paris

8. A simple dress that works just as well for work and a night out

Cropped button pants, €35.95, Maje

9. Stan Smiths (or any plain white sneakers)

adidas Originals All White Stan Smith Trainers, €94.59, ASOS

10. Black stilettos (preferably Louboutin, but Zara makes deadly ones as well)

High heel leather shoes, €49.95, Zara


It is all well and good to have the likes of Kendall and Gigi modelling your clothes, right?

Well, for Alessandro Michele, the creative director of Gucci, human models are SO last season, and we are here for it! 

The brand dropped a Year of the Dog capsule collection to celebrate Chinese New Year, and of course, canines were at the centre of the campaign.

Inspired by a pillow given to Alessandro Michele by artist Helen Downie the dog motifs of Bosco and Orso, Creative Director’s Boston Terriers, appear on ready-to-wear pieces. 

The clothes are, naturally, bloody majestic, but the dogs are even more impressive!

In the shots shared on Instagram, we are introduced to corgis, poodles, pekingese puppers and spaniels – that are all 100 times more successful than your typical human. 

A handful of people feature in the campaign, but honestly they are just there to wear clothing, while the doggos are the absolute stars of the show. 

Too right! 

Have a gawk through these paws-itively brilliant snaps (see what we did there?)

Oh, and if you have a dog at home who is model material – be sure to share a pic!








Ladies, we know January is a dreary (and kind of depressing) month, but Spring is coming, we promise.

How do we know this? Well, because logic, but also because Tommy Hilfiger has revealed their new collection for Spring.

The Spring 2018 Tommy Hilfiger Womenswear collection celebrates speed and immediacy with a touch of vintage nostalgia.

The collection gives a nod to Formula One racing pit crews with heritage work wear and a strong focus on denim.

The look takes inspiration from the iconic shapes, bold colours and streamlined graphics of speed racers for a collection that reinvents the traditional all-American classics.

Have a look for yourself, and let us know what you think:
