Ruby Rocks AW 2010 Collection

Rocks AW10 collection is off the chain ! Bigger , bolder , brighter prints and silhouettes are key this season. Exaggerated military urban with an 80's twist rocks the collection, full embellishment and extreme detailing shine. Palettes are earthy hues mixed with brights and gold . Our favourite is the bodycon chevron military sweat dress , adam astraunaut tee and fun but functional denim boiler suit.Dresses are more demure with a nostalgic 70's inspired feel with a Paris chic meets Abigails Party vibe with eye catching florals, woodland, stripe and tribal prints. Denim work wear permeates throughout. Look out for the butterfly jumpsuit, asymetric maxi skirt and birdie rouched shoulder dress to crown your winter wardrobe.

From The Blogs

Weekly roundup of all the news and views in the Irish fashion and beauty blogs!!!

Go Buy Now: Sheepskin!!!

It’s hard to imagine, but we’re fast forwarding a look at the upcoming autumn fashion trends already and Sheepskin is tipped to be as one of this season’s biggest trends.

With that in mind, we look to two must-have sheepskin pieces for your wardrobe once the cold sets in.

A die hard UGG fan or not, these babies certainly keep you warm all winter long. The solution for many is to wear them when house bound, as they can, for some, appear ugly outdoors (read the debate here: Ugg boots, rate them or slate them?).

Coast is pretty in pink to support The Marie Keating Foundation

As many Irish people will know, The Marie Keating Foundation aims to beat breast cancer through awareness, education and the provision of support services. Since launching in 2001, nearly 105,000 people have been helped by services provided by this wonderful Foundation and as October 2010 is Breast Cancer Awareness month, one of our favourite retailers Coast is proud to do its part to support the Marie Keating Foundation.

Wildchild is back

This week I’m mostly craving printed maxi skirts and dresses. 60s / 70s vintage printed, maxi skirts and dresses to be more precise. Since I’d noticed Wild Child vintage clothing had moved from Georges St. Arcade to Drury Street., I thought a bit of window shopping / dressing-up was in order. I think I want to go to a party wearing the mint-green dress above. One where I get to sit in this chair and drink Babycham and brandy, while smoking cigarettes through a large, gold cigarette-holder.

Two Week Maincure

This one is for all you ladies who like to have perfectly manicured talons at all times and would rather be caught dead than with a chip in your polish. It’s a new craze to hit the world of beauty, 2 week manicures! The brand I am aware of are called Gelish but there are many more available. It applies like a nail polish, wears like a gel nail, but without the damage to your natural nail plate.

The Fashion Industry Insider

There’s a definite nip in the air. I arrived in work yesterday with my feet peeping out from their sandals and shivered for the first half of the day. During the second half we were basking in the heat of the sun and my toes were toasty warm again. While the majority of the population are bemoaning the impending onset of autumn and winter all of us in the business of selling clothing are quietly happy that the weather seems to be behaving appropriately. Buyers arriving to me are telling me about all the stock arriving daily into their shops many of them are already selling the new arrivals well. Some buyers ask me where their orders are, as they haven’t received deliveries yet. I have to gently remind them that when I asked whether they would like August deliveries all those months ago they said definitely not and that September would be plenty time! I am personally a great believer of early delivery as there are always women who are keen to see the new seasons clothes and are fed up of sales which sometimes seem to go on forever. It is also easier as an agent to sell forward if the buyer coming in has already had a delivery and a good reaction to the last seasons buy.

Monday found me talking on the radio about MAMILS (middle aged men in Lycra) a subject I have to admit I hadn’t given much thought to though I have noticed lots more cyclists whizzing by me in various sports gear as I stall in yet another traffic jam. When I am asked to do any radio work it demands a couple of hours research so Sunday evening was spent looking at websites that sell cycling gear and finding out the origins of lycra (spandex in the US). All good for the mind though I do have to drag myself away from the computer at times. Twitter, Facebook, blogging and surfing are quite addictive. I was seriously chuffed when Stephen Frye replied to a tweet to him last night, perhaps it just shows how truly addicted I really am. Time to go for a walk I think…. Have a fashionable week ahead.
