Hello!

Welcome to my blog! I'm Kathryn and I blog about  fusing Vintage and modern Fashion together to create a unique style. I am also passionate about slowing down the fast fashion industry  and hope to encourage others to do likewise through my posts showcasing  my personal style through the vintage and thrifted items that I have sourced.

Spring has Sprung!

Ah yes! The hopeful promise of sunny cheery days to come...........

Yes, finally I can say , that I'm ever so slightly, getting excited about the idea that soon the sun will be warmer in the cloud ridden skies of dreary old Ireland...... And when that day arrives and I'm not still shivering in my little vintage coat I'll begin to believe that yes, even in this little damp patch  affectionately called 'The Emerald Isle' SPRING has finally SPRUNG!!!!!!!!

And so with it, hopefully, everyone else too will have a pep in their step! As we eagerly await all that summer vaguely promises , we can really only rely in Ireland , on the promise of summer hues waiting to be purchased from the high street and others.

Yes ,nothing beats a new Spring/Summer purchase to brighten up the day!

There is a divine variety too, to be had,  as my recent trip into rainy old Dublin proved. I decided to take photos of the prettiest pieces I could find, regardless of price, be it high street or designer. The pieces I found, I hope will be a helpful influence on the variety of outfits you choose to buy and ensemble this spring/summer.
