Posing in front of the Titanic…

A few days ago I went for a walk on the Galway prom in Salthill and you can imagine my surprise when I saw that nothing less than the Titanic was there!

Of course it’s not the real one but a 1:100 reproduction of the boat that sinked the night of the 14th of April 1912 in the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

I’ve always loved the movie and I have to admit that I also went to the 3D screening of it, so  I couldn’t resist the temptation to play the movie star and pose for some pics in front of this quite impressive reproduction of the transatlantic.

Even if I hadn’t plan it my outfit was right to play the part which made me even more happy!

I think that is impossible to go wrong with the blue pencil skirt and stripy shirt combo and adding a trench makes the whole outfit look very classy and timeless    as well as the red lipstick wore with almost no other make-up.

What do you think of it? Are you big fans of the Titanic too?

Irish summer outfit

It’s a very hard task to pick the right outfit to go through a Galway summer day,  even more difficult when the weather changes every few minutes and the temperatures aren’t very high.

This time my choice was to put together a light dress and a oversize open worked woolen sweater.  The fact that the sweater is not too thick  makes the outfit still look summery but keeps you warm and cozy.

Even though I decided to wear it with pumps  to face a long walk  I think it would work well with wedges too.

Last but not least I’d like to bring your attention to my invaluable golden bracelets that used to belong to my grandmother.

These kind of bracelets were really popular in the sixties and the girls wanted to get as many unique charms as possible;  in this case  the first charm is a golden pound while the second  is a tag, when you spin it you can read the words ” ti amo” which means ” I love you” in Italian… definitely a the romantic gift that every girl would like to get!

HELLO SAILOR!

Today the famous Volvo Ocean race arrives on the shores of Galway and  the whole city is buzzing while preparing for a week full of fun and events.

To get in the right celebratory mood I’d like to show my readers a photo shoot with a nautical theme  that I was asked to produce during my fashion course this year.

My inspiration was the french riviera during the sixties and the location is the Claddagh in Galway.

The photographer is Feargal Norton.

Summer day outfit

This is an outfit that I wore few weeks ago on a (almost) hot day in Galway, Ireland to go for a walk on the beach.

While I was walking I saw this  quite interesting spot near an abandoned factory and I couldn’t resist the temptation to pretend to be a famous model at a Vogue photo shoot for a while and pose for some pictures!

The outfit is a simple yet effective white t-shirt/ denim hot pants combo which I personally consider perfect for a day in the sun, I added red and turquoise accessories to give it a touch of color and my beloved red Converse to be ready for any kind of adventure!

The photographer of the shoot is Feargal Norton

Masquerade ball outfit

Today I got the results for my Business Fashion course and I have to say I’m really delighted with them!

So I decided to post the pictures of the outfit that I had to style for one of my styling assignments, the theme that the teacher gave us  was “Masquerade ball”.

I decided to use a Krizia vintage long top that I found in my aunt closet and to style it with a black tulle skirt that I made myself ( well with a little help from my mom…) and a pair of knee-high boots, I also added golden bangles and a necklace worn as a tiara just to give a “royal” touch to the whole outfit.

The location was the beautiful Kylemore Abbey in co. Galway, Ireland and the photographer was Feargal Norton.

I hope you like it!
