Le Fashion Fix

Bonjour everyone! I'm really excited about my finds this week.  Sorely tempted to get them all but of course won't.  It's not a philosophy set in stone but in general I really do believe you can get great stuff for less.  If your a bargain hunter you know the great buzz you get from finding something for half nothing.  In a world where we regularly over pay for things, part of me feels like I've beaten the system with my little bargain finds.  At the moment I'm all about mixing.  Old with new, soft with rough, sweet with tough.  You hear it all time because it's true - It's not so much about what you wear but how you wear it.  This week's random selection has some classic basics and a few Je ne sais quoi pieces thrown in for fun.

First up, a classic white shirt but I love the over-sized pockets on it.
Only €11 and free shipping :)
You will notice a lot of my finds this week come from this shop: 97K-Gallery on eBay.
Loads of great stuff so have a look!

I find the print on this skirt so pretty.  They have a few different ones so check them out:
About €13 including shipping.

Why not have the shoe to go with the skirt and shirt?
They come in a few colours but these are my favourite.
About €25 including shipping

Drop waists are definitely on trend at the moment and this little denim dress is perfect for the summer!
About €18 including shipping.
Toughen it up with my next find:

How brilliant are these? I could wear them with everything!
About €40 including shipping.
Love these!

This dress and some Nirvana, perfect!
About €22 including shipping.  It comes in other prints and colours so check them out:

About €13 including shipping.

 Lovely simple white dress, also worn by the New Girl herself, Zooey Deschanel.
Only about €10 and free shipping!

Another lovely trend, the asymmetrical skirt.
Only about €10 and free shipping!
It's also available in a lovely yellow.

None of my lists would be complete without a jumper!
How dear is this one? (dear, get it? - your daily dose of cheese!)

And finally, do a  Prince Harry with these leather suede desert boots.
About €42 including shipping.

Another week, another list of great finds! Hope you found something you liked!
Let me know what you like and if there is something you want me to keep an eye out for. It's all about the thrill of the hunt & find for me!

Have a great weekend tous le monde!

Very Vert

 Dressing as fresh and bright as the day!
If we all dress to compliment the sun, will it stick around?
Green is, after all,  the colour of hope :) 

Along with it all, my favourite perfume.
 When I was 20 I set out to find my first perfume.  A bit late compared to most I know but that's how it was. I wanted something I would love forever and that would identify me.  I walked into The Bay in Montreal, gazed at the mirrored walls and glass counters of perfumes and looked all around until my eyes settled on a pretty little round bottle. A glass ball with a little pearl inside it.  Noa by Cacharel.  It was the first one I tried and I've been wearing it ever since.  I have others and love discovering new ones but Noa is me on any day, in any mood!

Along with Noa, today I'm wearing a top from Penny's (€9) & skirt from SVP (€3), Heels from Dunnes.  I got a turquoise version of this skirt about a month ago but seeing the fresh apple green one still there the other day I had to have it!
There were so many pretty things in Penny's and I just couldn't make up my mind except for this fine knit. I like finding pieces you can't pin a date to! This knit has a vintage look and feel about it that will keep me wearing it for years.

Hope your making the most of the sun!

Fashion Fix

No theme this week just another random collection of "I like that" to share with you.  When I look for these pieces I have a vague idea of what I'm looking for but I try not to be too specific to keep an open mind as to what is out there.  You never know what you might come across.  I like finding either a great bargain or something really different.  I'm not loaded and I don't have time to run up and down the high street so eBay and I have become good friends for many reasons.  I do at times bid for things but I much prefer the straight forward Buy Now option because I know exactly what I'm going to spend. I love receiving packages in the post! Who doesn't?! Enjoy! :)

Dress up anything plain with this lovely necklace
About €9 including shipping

I've got a few jumpers this week but if your anything like me you always need one!
About €9 and free shipping :)

I love the print of this skirt.  It comes in loads of different ones so check them out!

Crop tops are having a bit of a moment and I really like the sweet colours this one comes in.
About €16 including shipping
Some pieces you know you will have forever and this skirt is one of them!
Love this skirt!

Available in a few different colours
About €20 including shipping

Pretty chiffon rose textured jumper
You can't see this very well but I just couldn't do any better so check it out for yourself
It's also available in black and blue

The perfect pretty summer heel!

I'm about as sporty as a koala bear but with this jacket, I'm willing to make an effort!
About €22 including shipping
Lastly on my list this week, another statement piece
About €9 including shipping

There you have it! Hope you spotted something you liked!
Happy shopping!
Have a good weekend everyone!

A Blacker Shade of Pale

It's rather grey today and I'm not in the mood to contradict the weather so I'm wearing my black vintage Laura Ashley dress (€3 charity shop).  My inspiration today can best be described as Modern Provincial.  I love all the soft rich natural shades.  Sometimes I wait for special occasions to wear my pretty dresses but wearing one for no particular reason make my whole day a little bit special. Belt from Penny's, Necklaces & shoes from Dunnes and the leather bag is a vintage charity shop find.  Feeling a little anti-trend at the moment.  Forget bright florals, pastels, neon etc.  Whatever the season, trend or weather, the best way to dress is always to wear something you feel good in!
