Lagos, Alvor, Portugal:Part 2



After we visited Villamour, the following day we drove to a bustling little fishing village called Alvor. Being a vegetarian meant there wasn't much choice on the menu for me considering Ariel's friends were being fried, grilled and flambĂ©ed left right and centre. 

I enjoyed my fishless meal considerably, nonetheless.

I've been LOVING, and I mean LOVING 'Delta' coffee here. I'm hoping they have it back home in Ireland.
What I call my 'Tina Turner' dress is from Primark and my shoes are from Zara

Oh I wasn't aware a photo was being taken... 

On Wednesday my boyfriend got here. I picked him up from the Airport and then brought him back to the apartment where my Mama and Aunt had made dinner. Red Wine, Olives, Breads, Etc. You get the idea. It was delicious.

On Thursday evening I decided to wear a lovely 1930s-esque dress from iClothing based in Ireland.
I love pieces that give a vintage echo, and this long wrap dress inspired me to take the vintage theme a little further by putting my hair up and wearing little droplet earrings. I felt I was seeing my boyfriend off to WWII. I have an imagination, I know.

Off to the beach, as usual

Have a read of Part 1 here.

The Caroline Dress

 

I was so honoured when Lynsey McGarrigle, owner and designer of MoHawkDesigns, told me that the dress that I had modelled was officially called 'The Caroline Dress'.
Never have I had such a piece of art named after me. When I received photographs from Gavan, the photographer from the Topher Lily Fashion Show, I couldn't resist in sharing them and couldn't believe the fact that something so beautifully created, by an equally beautiful person, could be named after me.

Royal Red




I was invited to my friend's Daddy's wedding evening (that was a mouthful) and since it was the very last day of August I didn't want anything too summery, although by that stage I was feeling very nostalgic for summer. I was missing the long evenings, the last ounces of heat and the smell of BBQ's not to mention the ample opportunities where I got to wear liberating summer outfits. However, on the last day of August I wanted to prepare myself, and my wardrobe, for the coming months that would be filled with deep tones of red, burnt orange and gold. Therefore I took inspiration from the awe-inspiring A/W 13 collection from Dolce &Gabanna, a collection worthy of dressing the Tudors with it's religious iconography and effigies. Whilst my budget does not reach the vincity of Dolce & Gabanna, it didn't mean I couldn't adapt their style.My dress was a deep red velvet with gold embroidered lace which I wore with simple black peep toe shoes and a classic Chanel bag, and a curly, but relaxed hairstyle, never outshining the dress.
