Ebay Fashion Week - Rapid Rise of Blogging

19 June 2012

I attended the first of Ebay Fashion Week's talks last night which was geared around the 'Rapid Rise of Blogging'. It was really exciting to get the opportunity to hear two industry insider's views on fashion blogging. The guests were Irish Times blogger Rosemary MacCabe and Style Isle’s Lorna Weightman.
Although both are well established in the world of fashion blogging, it was thought-provoking to see how their opinions on blog posts and the influence of fashion bloggers differed greatly. There were a few sticking points on which both agreed on, including using big clear photos, staying true to yourself and allowing readers a little insight into your life so they get to know you. Another point Rosemary brought up was not to take yourself too seriously, something I whole heartedly agree with!

You can catch tonight’s talk streamed live here at 7pm, the rest of this week’s talks will also be available to watch live at 7pm each evening. I’m missing out on attending the rest of the talks, however I’ll be looking forward to attending Ebay’s first ever live streamed Fashion show on Friday.

Underground Creepers Pink Suede & Leopard Print

13 June 2012

It's time to 'get my creep on' for the second time! I have been lusting after this particular style of Creepers forever. After deciding the official Underground website’s shipping costs were too pricey for my meagre budget, and discovering Office’s website would not ship this style to Ireland, I almost resigned myself to the fact that these bad boys were simply unattainable.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my navy blue creepers they serve me well, but a loud print mixed with a pop of colour sums up my style in shoe form. I picked these up yesterday from Office on Grafton Street, I’d decided to settle for a pastel pink pair when I spotted these lovelies nestled on a shelf. They were the last size 5 and I got 20% discount for a slight mark on them too, hurray!

If you’re in the market for your first pair of Creepers, or you want to add another addition to your Creeper collection, Office on Grafton Street have by far the best selection at the moment. Get yourself in there before they all sell out.
