I’m having an early Friday night in after a yummmmy meal in CrackBIRD, a pop up restaurant here in Dublin with ‘addictive chicken’ and sides (the whipped feta & burnt lemon dip is UHmayzing). Loads of plans for the weekend, but in the meantime, here’s a roundup of things that have caught my eye this week and fun events coming up!
The lovely Pearl, from Fashion Pearls of Wisdom, has put together a FREE ebook guide to spotting counterfeit items on ebay and beyond. Anyone that has read her blog will know that she has some amazing vintage finds and a designer wardrobe to make any girl jealous. She shares her Pearls (geddit?!) of wisdom in spotting counterfeit items when buying vintage. This edition features Channel 2.55, Louis Vuitton scarves and Vivienne Westwood. To download, visit Pearl’s blog for links to the FREE guide. Did I mention it’s free? Well it is.
For the athlete in you that’s dying to get out ( i’m sure there’s one in me somewhere) Liberty of London have teamed up with Nike to create a range of Liberty print Nike trainers. I was unsure of what the collaboration might be like when I first heard word of it, however the prints are gorgeous and girly, without being over the top. Typically Liberty, they designs are intricate and delicate looking but pack a punch. My favourite design is the second one down in the pictures that follow. Jaime of Boy Meets Fashion got up close & personal to the collection and his lovely pictures are here.
For anyone who, like me, is excited to see Kate Middleton’s dress but otherwise isn’t too pushed about THE wedding of the year. OR, for anyone that needs to explain to their cynical other half (again, like me) just why it is that they’re somewhat excited, The Licentiate has a great post that will give you a very valid reason to list off to those that moan. FINALLY, something he can’t answer back to!
THESE, sickeningly, green-eyed-monster inducing photos of Khloe Kardashian’s shoe closet. I’m thinking of writing to her & appealing to her humanitarian side…she only has 2 feet and i’m sure she can’t be papped in the same pair twice. I just hope she’s the same shoe size as me!
