As I have mentioned (endlessly) I am looking for an outfit to be worn in March to The Child’s Confirmation. Rushing through Dublin city centre on Friday afternoon, en route to an appointment, I managed to find a little time to quickly run into a few stores to see what was on offer. Clearly, nothing suitable for the occasion I had in mind! However, easily distracted as always, I did see a few things still languishing on the (surprisingly full) sales racks that I thought I should bring to your attention. I hope you are all hugely impressed by the fact that I wasn’t swayed from my mission and therefore resisted making any rash purchases. However, those of you who may still have a few vouchers left (I salute your restraint!) or have a few bob to spare, may be interested in these bits ‘n pieces which are still available, all of which are perfect for those of us who need some coverage due to psoriasis.
First stop was one of my high street favourites, Whsitles. My magpie-like eye is always drawn to anything sparkly and if I had a formal occasion to go to, I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase this. Don’t worry about the arms; that issue is easily solved by either some Mary Portas Armery or the recent addition to the market, Canopi. Some opaque tights and killer heels and how fabulous would you look?
In a similar vein but for a less formal occasion was this top. It doesn’t seem to be available online anymore but there are definitely a few left in Brown Thomas in Dublin... and not just in sizes 6 or 20! A perfect top with stunningly embellished sleeves, yet a pale body so that any flakiness won’t ruin your look. You’ll just have to trust me when I say it looked way better in reality. I really loved this (seriously impressed with myself for not giving in to temptation)
I also took a quick dash into Ted Baker and spied this little gem on the rails. Perhaps I was swayed by the freezing cold temperatures, not to mention the sleet and rain, but I loved the fur detail on the cuffs and reckoned this would be a seriously cosy option to add to the knitwear in your wardrobe.
I realise that many of you are looking towards the Spring/Summer collections now, but these items are classics that I believe would be a good staples to have in your wardrobe. So, have you made any last minute purchases in the sales? Or are you planning for the milder weather that we hope will be on its way soon?
