Outfits to Drool Over - VIP Style Awards 2017

The ladies (and men) at this years VIP Style Awards were dressed to impress! Heres a round up of my favourite looks!

Pippa (O Connor) was by far my most favourite outfit of the night, the simplicity of the monochrome colours, the style, how it fits. AHHH OBSESSED. I even went as far as to look up the dress for an awards show I have at the end of the month (The Wexford Business Awards FYI). 
And sure how could you not look at Brian, THE BLAZER. Fab!

Lisa Cannon was another absolutely stunning monochrome look. The dress fits her curves beautifully and the slit adds a little sexiness to the sophisticated look.

Alannah Beirne took risks and tethered on the edge of being overly sexual but my god she looks amazing!

Another red number from Jo Archbold that I just thought accentuated her figure fabulously!

This two piece is a little more out of what I'd usually like style wise but I'm actually loving it, then again, Tara (O Farrell) could wear a black bin bag and I'd be dying over it!

No words Rosie (Connolly), UNREAL

I've been following Doireann (Garrihy) on snapchat for a while now and her style for events is always ON POINT, her award for Most Stylish Influencer was well deserved. 

Only Roz (Purcell) would make a high neck, long sleeve, full length black gown look stylist AF. 

Im torn on Sinead Desmond's dress, I adore the bottom half but felt the top half would have really set it off if there were more flowers covering the sheer top. 

I have to say all of the Xpose ladies looked absolutely beautiful.

What was your favourite look of the night?

Embracing New Trends - Gingham

Ok, so I'm not really one for following new fashion trends as tbh - I'm probably going to be shot for this - a lot of the time I find them to be actually extremely ugly. Yes I said it. Now of course this is only MY opinion and I know a lot of people love certain trends that come out. I wish I did, but the majority of the time I hate them. 

For instance the gingham trend, now don't get me wrong I actually do love the pattern but I find that a lot of the time the actual clothing the pattern comes on is horrendous, in particular the shape and the fit. Some of them are just not flattering on anyone (again my opinion). I don't find them to be suitable for every day wear. So I decided to scout out some more wearable clothing that still fall in line with this trend. 
New Look is always the site I go to when purchasing clothing that is currently 'in' and that may not be in in a few months as it isn't too expensive and doesn't really matter if you only get a few wears out of it!
So with less of the blabbering here are my favourites!

Outfit Of The Day (OOTD)

Sunday is basically the only day during the week that I actually wear normal clothes. The rest of the week Im in uniform for work. I didn't realise when I bought this top that the slits on the arms go ALLLLL the way from the shoulder to the wrist. Which does not make for a flattering look when your elbow and all your arm pop out!! Even my boyfriend told me to keep my jacket on hahahaha. Whoever designed this top should be shot. I'm going to put a stitch or two down the slits at the elbow to keep them closed so I can keep wearing it without rocking some weird batwings. Its a shame because its such a lovely blouse, I'm loving tie front tops this season they pair perfectly with mid-high waisted jeans!

Jeans: River Island Molly Reform Jeggings
Top: Primark/Penneys
Jacket: River Island
Boots: New Look (last year)

Primark/Penneys Come Clean Mitt - *REVIEW*

I had some time to kill on my lunch break today so like most days I hit up Penneys for a little look. I did have to pick up another bottle of my favourite Garnier Miccellar Water (the pink one FYI) so that was my excuse for going in (like I needed one!!!).

When I spotted the 'Come Clean Mitt' with 3 in a pack for €3, I immediately threw it in my basket. I'd seen it mentioned previously on Facebook in a 'coming soon' style post. Years ago when I was reaaaaallly into blogging I was sent a Cleanse Off Mitt when they were first released and I loved that thing with all my heart, until I threw it in the wash basket one day and it was never seen again!!
