Buy of the Week.....Pastel Pieces


FASHION BUY..........Green lace jacket, €79, Darling

Pastel shades and whites are big colour trends for Spring/Summer 2011. With these hues in mind my must have buy of the week is this gorgeous jacket from a label called Darling, also hitting yet another trend - lace. Heading into our (fingers crossed) sunnier months filled with plenty of garden parties every girl should have something pretty and feminine in their wardrobe. I think this jacket is the ultimate girlie piece; soft lace, flattering sleeve length, waist definition, the perfect Mad Men addition. Darling is available in Carraig Donn who have 22 stores in Ireland - for locations go to http://www.carraigdonn.com/locator.htm.

Styling Tips
  • Wear with denims and pastel wedges for a casual look
  • Team over your favourite shift dress giving the effect of a skirt and jacket
  • Keep the look girly and wear with a soft floral skirt
  • Smarten up for an office look with on-trend high waist tailored trousers that have a wide leg. Choose a plain style (no patterns or prints) in a neutral colour.
  • Experiment with different colour ribbons or belts around the waist to tie together different outfits.

Shauna’s buy of the week is Max Factor’s new range of eye shadows; they are called Max Effect Dip in Eye Shadow. They come in 8 different shades; vibrant turquoise, party lime, ultra violet, silver lounge, posh pink, Ibiza sunrise, bronzed glow and moody blue. They are easy to apply and have their own built in sponge tip applicator which is ideal for applying loose eye shadow powder. Colour is everywhere this season so these are a must have for your make up bag, if you want a vibrant flash of colour to make a bold statement this Spring/Summer.
