girlcrush #grimes

A lot of my favourite things seem to come from Canada – Chromeo, Trailer Park Boys, Mountain Dew, Ryan Gosling and now Grimes.

I am so excited about seeing her play at Forbidden Fruit Festival in Dublin this summer. Not only am I a fan of her music, but her style too – a little bit 80’s electro, a little bit riot grrrl, a little bit grunge.

If it wasn’t for that pesky day job i’d have a lilac 50’s fringe in the morning!

Check out her clothes in the video for Oblivion –  obsessed with the gold & black hoodie and the huge sailor style collars.

Denim & Opaques

Such a classic autumn/winter staple. I love the cute collar of the shirt peeking out over the knit.

This is a look i’ll be recreating over & over during the colder months. Hello 200 denier tights from Primark!!

Alison Mosshart Forever

She’s my modern day Chrissie Hynde. I want to dress like her always.

Chrissie Hynde – my ‘pleather’ icon

Plastic leather. One of my favourite odes to a rock-chick is leather, or in this case, pleather. If you can be bothered to battle with the sweat or bring a bottle of talc out with you then I salute you. If not, pleather’s your man.
One of my most beloved style icons is Chrissie Hynde, from The Pretenders. I love her messy hair, shaggy fringe, smudged eyeliner and leather and denim. Chrissie, herself a vegetarian, would most likely never wear real leather so this is an ode to her.

There’s lots of pleather (stop staying pleather!) on the high street at the moment. With denim and stretch-jersey mixes, to just plain out stretchy pleather pants. Worn with heels and some sequins for a night-time look or with a shabby tshirt and converse for a daytime grungey rock look, they’re versatile and oh-so cool. 
I’m going straight for the River Island ones come payday. And I will live in them. 

New style fave – Keira Knightley

I was never previously a big fan of Keira Knightley’s style. But recent appearances in Toronto & at the Venice Film Festival have seen her turn out some huge style hits. Perhaps she has a new stylist? Whatever’s going on, me likey.

Are you a fan of Keira’s style? Have there been any looks that have caught your eye? I hope this style bonanza stays for a while, it’s almost taken the attention away from her perma-pout!

Together in Electric Dreams

For the next few days I shall be away at Ireland’s best outdoor music festival, Electric Picnic.

I shall be back then with LOADS of new & exciting posts, especially some upcoming about Dublin Festival of Fashion.

For now, i’m gonna sign off with a pick of some of my fave looks from last weekend’s Reading festival, which, incidentally, is where I was born. Not the festival, Reading!
Think of me in a tent while you’re all tucked up in your warm beds!!

Leather & Leighton

I love, love, LOVE this look on Leighton Meester. Leather paired with soft, floaty, feminine fabrics is a favourite look of mine and she just does it so well.

She doesn’t even go here!

TEN points for whoever can tell me what the title quote is from!!

The lovely Rachel McAdams is looking amazing here, apart from the slightly demented look on her face, ahem.
I love this rather masculine take on a jumpsuit and I’ve wanted a pair of Pigalle’s (albeit the studded ones) since forever.
