Greetings people. As you know, we did a little video experiment at the Irish Bloggers Bash on Saturday night last. We asked all the peeps about their Worst Fashion Moment Ever. Obviously, this question took on a life of it’s own, as us Irish are too ready to ‘fess up to our failings and  humiliations (along the lines of screeching out Pennys ! when asked about a particular item of clothing). Cue much hilarity. But much hilarity means much laughter…much laughter means much noise…and much noise+amateur camera+slightly inebriated filming = Short but Sweet film. We’re still learning, so be patient with us!

Thanks to the hard-working Sarah for putting it all together.

Hold onto your braces people, This is England ’86 is definitely the real A/W trend we’ve been waiting for. You can shove your camel, eat your shearling cap and say goodbye to 1950s feminine restraint. Lol, Kelly and Smell are this seasons superheros. Read the rest of this entry »

Clare Kambamettu - 51st Rose

(I have never heard that Father Ted quote bandied about so much as I have over the last few days…)

Now let me preface this post by saying I have nothing against the Rose of Tralee (except the fact that at 26 you’d be too old to enter it). On Monday I was listening to Sinead Gleeson on The Last Word and she raised a very valid point. The Rose of Tralee is a representation of women that you don’t usually see on TV. And it’s true. The Hills, The City, Big Brother and yes even Sex and the City… they’re all less than flattering representations of the female form. It IS refreshing to see women on TV who aren’t trying to dumb themselves down so that people like them better. It’s bloody brilliant actually.

But Christ on a bike through charity work is the Rose of Tralee twee…

Peggy hits the bottle... of hair spray

Oh-Em-Geeeee! Mad Men is BACK! I am so excited I think I might have to go and lie down. The new episode is downloaded and ready for the watching. I cannot wait to see what’s gonna happen with the new agency, is Betty gonna end up with the minger and will Joan dump that no good sonuvabitch?

But most importantly what’s gonna happen with the FASHION? Oh lordy, by the looks of Betty’s new do, we’re in for some Jackie Kennedy worship.

Some photos after the cut….

Kelly = Total Ledge-bag

Jennie (From The Blog) and her sisters kicked off What Will I Wear Today? being escorted into the tents at Bryant Park for New York Fashion Week. Not sneaking in, walking in with the permission of a one Kelly Cutrone. True story.

Having treated my chancey buddy so kindly, from the off, I’m a big Kelly fan. Plus, her scenes in The City completely lift the programme. I’ve bought into her schtick big time. Her schtick being a no-nonsense, ball-busting, straight-talking, black-clad fashion maven.

In a world where people talk total HORSE-SHIT, she’s a breath of fresh air.

She’s written a book with the greatest title in the history of publishing. “If You Want To Cry, Go Outside.” It’s what Oscar Wilde would have called one of his novels if he’d been allowed to work in fashion pr. (And I rather suspect he really would have loved the opportunity.)

Charges were brought against the cast of Fair City at the weekend on Fashion Crimes 1 and Conspiracy to Offend the Eyes of the Public. These very serious charges were initiated by The United Nations of People Against Irish Televisual Fashion. After months of campaigning, UNAITF had successfully brought a comprehensive and watertight case to the High Courts. Their campaign cited heinous misuse of patterns, widespread trend negligence, willfully obscure shapes, repetition, excessive use of cheap, animal-print materials and a dependency on in-house charity shop materials.

wearing shades cos looks can kill

Gah! Too many people love this woman! Can somebody please tackle Joe Zee and help him understand that Olivia is EVIL. Poor aul Erin does her best. It could be time for a strongly worded email sent in the direction of MTV, suggesting Kelly Cutrone takes Olivia on for a week in People’s Revolution. Holy moly, that’d be such great TV.

The source of my vitriol must surely be a shared exprience. Doesn’t everyone know someone like this in the work place? Does the minimum, takes credit for other people’s work, arrogant beyond belief and doesn’t feel embarrassed that certain people know she’s a fraud… I may have to start carrying around a cold wet cod, just on the offchance I ever encounter her and have the opportunity to deliver a swift but mighty slap of the face.

So what do we think? Style Wars. Is this gonna be any cop? With Caprice in the pivotal position (that is the apex of the triangle, a power pose common in reality TV programming), I sense a scraping of the barrel in terms of budgets. TV3 does not have a great track record with high quality, dyanmic programming; relying instead on American imports and embarrassing recreations of British reality tv formats.

dog = ultimate fashion accessory


Rachel Bilson is the epitome if laid-back LA cool. I love love love her relaxed, casual day-wear; always managing to look neatly put together with a care-free attitude. If I’m honest, the thing I love most about Rachel is her long flowing locks – oh to have such a beautiful mane on my bonnet. Thick and luxurious and healthy…… Read the rest of this entry »
