I was absolutely delighted to be asked to feature in a recent piece in The Weekend magazine titled
One Little Black dress Equals Four Looks
Four bloggers and Stylists were asked to transform a simple black pencil dress from Zara into different looks which could take you to a party, wedding or the races.
Stylist Maria Fusco, Yvonne Crotty from Bonzie Designs, model/stylist Dee Morrisey and myself all chose completely different looks that showcased how we would update a little black dress (a must for every girls wardrobe!).
I stuck to my vintage roots with a look that harked back to the 1950s. I teamed the black pencil dress with a vibrant turquoise 1950s' bolero and ruched evening gloves, rhinestone earrings, brooch and bracelet and a 1960s black velvet and crystal clutch bag. I topped it of with a fabulous blue floral headband with dotty black cage veil also from the 50's. (all available from Dirty Fabulous)
The black patent loafers are from Fitzpatrick's on Grafton Street.
The stunning Clara McSweeney from Andrea Roche Model Agency knows how to rock a retro look!
