Back in December, I wrote a blog post while sitting in the airport, with a heavy heart and extremely heavy suitcases, as I bid farewell to Paris and France, a country that I called home for three years. I came back to the Emerald Isle with the aim of finishing my Masters in International Management and then finding a new career opportunity within the fashion industry – something that I’ve been orientated around for quite a few years.
Last week I visited Starla on South William Street for the first time. The concept of the boutique is both online and offline, meaning you can browse through their website and have your desired dresses delivered to your doorstep the next day, or go directly to the gorgeous boutique in Dublin. But, it gets even better! Starla also offers dress hire, so for those pieces that are a little over budget or that you think you will most likely only get one use of (think statement dresses like ball gowns and debs dresses!), you can enjoy your dream dress for a fraction of the price.
Back in January, I visited Berlin for the first time, making time for all of the must-see touristy spots and bringing you a Berlin Brunch guide, as we hid indoors from the sleet and snow. This time around, my Berlin experience couldn’t have been more different! The city was alive and bursting with colour as the sun came out and along with it all the weird and wonderful people that make Berlin the eclectic city that is is today.
Spring has arrived but the sun hasn’t quite made it Dublin yet. Faux fur, hats and gloves are still part of the daily wardrobe here and the thought of hot sand and a sea breeze led to a spontaneous decision to go to Crete. Expect some travel posts within the next few days!
The street style in Berlin is so impressive and reminded me of the urban, androgynous and minimalistic vibes that can be seen on every corner in Milan. Even the landscape is expressive – finding a blank, colourless wall would probably be your greatest challenge in this city! However, it was also incredibly cold as we arrived just after a big snowfall that then turned icy as temperatures dropped.
