Model Of The Moment

Ok, so I thought I'd do a quick post Cara Delevingne as I'm quite obsessed with her at the moment. She is the latest fresh new face to hit the catwalks this year, as she is a young and current model she has gave us many memorable moments through out 2012 as well as great style inspiration for all of us fond followers. She is following in the footsteps of her older sister Poppy Delevingne who is also a well known model which has graced the catwalk for some years now.

There has been quite a lot of hype surrounding Cara Delevingne this year as she has burst onto the scene with Burberry's Spring/Summer 2012 campaign. She is now one of the Uk's top and most photographed models. She was awarded Top Model at the Best British Fashion Awards. She was recently involved in Victoria Secrets 2013 runway show for the first time which is a major achievement as she only recently turned 20. She has furthered her recognition by her companionship with Harry Styles from One Direction and also through her close friendship with pop singer and fashion icon Rita Ora.

Probably what I love most about Cara is her layed back style themed with a quite natural makeup looks. I admire the way she can make such ordinary pieces look fabulous on her. Shes my latest style crush and inspiration so I felt it necessary to do a small piece on her.
Hope you liked it,

Outfit Post: Winter Warmer

(Cossack Hat-New Look/ Jumper-Topshop)
As were now in the depth of winter I thought it was timely to do a daytime look to cover up and avoid those winter blues. This Cossack Hat which I'm wearing was purchased last February in the sales for just 4 euro before I went on a short weekend away to Prague. The hat is very stylish and extremely cosy, while can be easily themed with any outfit. I also feel it could look quite quirky for the festival season matched with a pair of aviator shades to avoid those well timed showers we've had for concerts over the previous years.

(Dress-Love Label at Topshop)

The jumper I'm wearing in this post was also feathered in my last outfit post back in November. It was probably my best bargain buy ever, costing only 6 euro. However it’s so versatile and simply goes with every look I had to include it yet again. Unfortunately you'll probably be seen it a lot more in posts to come but I just love it!! The dress I'm wearing is from the Love label at Topshop. I have this dress many years now, I originally purchased it for Christmas Day 3 years ago but it has been brought out of the wardrobe many times since. It's a ballerina style dress with a gorgeous golden tulle hem. Sadly it was too cold to show the whole dress off, perhaps again in another post. (Notice my white hands from the cold temps!!)

(Duffle Coat-Pennys)

Genuinely we'd be going nowhere without our duffle coats this time of year. This is just a simple black one I picked up in Pennys when the weather began to get a little colder. I decided to pick one with a hood as I go to college in Galway and it never seems to stop raining. However I feel Pennys had a great range stylish duffle coats this winter topped off by their agreeable price.

I hope you enjoyed this outfit post and apologies for the lack of posts lately as I was sitting Christmas exams in college. However in back now and have some great ideas for the New Year so please bear with me. Also please bear with the random surroundings of my photographs, I live on a farm so not everywhere is suitable. However I feel the lighting of these pictures have improved from my previous post as I'm trying out many settings on my new camera.

Hope you enjoyed,
Alice xo.

Kate Bosworth for Topshop

(Kate Boswort-Winter Wonderland)

So I've been getting very much into the Christmas spirit lately and decided I'd give you a quick preview of Kate Bosworth's new mini festive film for Topshop. In the video the super stylish star wears a perfect burgundy sequined dress themed with a gorgeous pair of jeweled pumps.  The outfit featured in this video will be available in Topshop stores from February 2013 as part of Kate's Collection for Topshop. As a massive fan of the highstreet store I personally can't wait until her collection is available to us.
