From the Blogs

Monday's Round up of the Irish Fashion and Beauty Blogs Approaching Spring Summer with Tess Purcell:
The Spring Summer Season is now in full swing in our stores – with all sorts of interpretations of the seasonal trends which have eventually trickled their way from the catwalks to the high street. But this can prove a little overwhelming for people who haven’t quite settled on a style that they are personally happy with. more Tips for choosing the right footwear.
For most of us the reality is that we own more heels than flats or runners, and we have all bought a pair that looked so pretty we had already decided they were coming home with us before we even tried them on.Although for years I have been a slave to shoes I fell in love with, I have now become a bit more conscious of what I put on my feet.

I Blog Fashion: London Fashion Week AW 10/11
t's back! London Fashion Week kicks off again at Somerset House this Friday for the unveiling of its AW10 collections. I'm all sorts of excited.
