The Hennessy Gold Cup, Racing Fun!!!

Me, Laura Jane Halton and Jennifer Halton

On Sunday 7th of February we headed en masse to The Hennessy Gold Cup for the Best Dresses Ladies Competition (and the horse racing of course!)

Myself and Caroline got shortlisted along with some other super glamorous ladies and we enjoyed chatting about our outfits, inspirations and the joy of shopping while being very well looked after by the lovely people at Hennessy.

The style was absolutely amazing and everyone had put so much effort into their outfits, from making their hats, dresses and capes to sourcing their vintage finds.

If you'd like to have a goo at the stylishness on offer check out Xpose here:

The Fab Charlie Winston!

We were lucky enough to go to a gig in the Village last night to see Charlie Winston.
We just can't get enough of his music lately. Check out this tune...

The Village was packed and everyone seemed to be having a great night. The band were really enigmatic and quite debonair!
While we were waiting in the bar before the gig started we were surrounded by mouthwatering smells from a €20 Italian tasting menu, four courses and two glasses of wine!

We didn't have time to eat but apparently they are doing other tasting nights like these such as Brazilian and French cuisine which we will definitely get to.

Farewell to Our Personal Legend!

Nanny on her Honeymoon, loving that bag!

Nanny rocking the suit, way ahead of her time when dresses were d'rigour!

We've been been closed for a few days here in Dirty Fabulous as our amazing Nanny passed away this week just short of her 94th birthday.

She was a fashionista of her time, a professional seamstress from a family of tailors, who passed her trade on to her own family.

We love you Nanny, Rest In Peace.

Romantic February!!!

This weeks Dirty Fabulous dresses are inspired by the romance of Valentines.
With the dreary February weather I think we all deserve a girlie pick-me up.

Let out the Romantic Goddess within by dressing in a feminine tulle confection or drape yourself in rhinestones, lace and satins just because you're worth it!!!

Go on spoil yourself! You know you want to....

Enjoy a complimentary glass of Champagne during your appointments in February and let the bubbles cheer you into Spring!
