Friday Favourites

From one of my favourite streetstyle blogs, New Zealand's Street and City Photos, comes this photo. Immediately I was reminded of Lisa Bonet, or Denise Huxtable from The Cosby show as you might best remember her. Anyone else?

From fellow Irish blogger, Blaubushka, came this post about Marks and Spencer A/W 2011 Collection. I'm longsince a fan of M&S for the basics and the food, but this just blew me away. Check out Blaubushka's post for more photos, in the meantime, feast your eyes on this: 

THIS amaaaaaaaaaazing looking cherry pie, as made by the lovely Sunshine With Everything. I love cherries, I just wish they weren't so damn expensive here. I did see aforementioned M&S had them at 50% off today, so I will definately be trying my hand at this pie over the weekend. Delish!!

Feeling inspired by Cait from Sailing to Nowhere for making these 2 skirts herself. I have a bag of clothes that I want to upstyle, and what better time to do it than now? Thanks for giving me a virtual kick up the butt, Cait!

Marie's post about her favourite shoes that KILL is something i'm sure we can all relate to. Any tips on breaking in shoes, pass them her way! (Bear in mind she's been trying to break these babies in for 4 years now, ahem)

THIS photo via Bare Style. It's my dream jacket. Or at least it would be were it leather, rather than denim. I'm making it my business to purchase some studs and a gun this weekend and customising a little something myself. Love. 

Via The Q Project, again with Bambi's eyebrows, this time for Free People. She is the Brooke Shields of the now. *draws on eyebrows*

Whilst not always a fan of Kirsten Dunst, recently i've REALLY been digging her style. I'm talking in the last 12mths, at least. This is one of my favourites of hers, via The Vogue Diaries. I love androgyny. I love masculine/feminine. And here she's done it well, the trousers are just the right tightness without verging into overtly sexy. Add a dickiebow for me and i'd be good to go!

I think that's pretty much it for now, I'm tired and i'm cranky. I tried to self-ombre my hair tonight but the dye just didn't take. And i'm sitting here waiting for FREE Prince tickets to miraculously fall into my lap for his concert here in Dublin tomorrow night. Wish me luck! Happy weekend!!


  1. M&S photos look unreal, I may go in for a gander.. My first time not goin in for some cookies only!

  2. Thanks for the mention!!!I seem to have triumphed with the shoes...for today anyhow. This may end up being a saga.

  3. I love the second and third image, sooo beautiful!

  4. I love that studded Jacket too! Amazing! What did you mean by studs and a gun? I'm interested in studing some of my clothes too but not sure where to start, do you need a glue gun?

  6. Cherry Picker - i'll be honest, I was only guessing that there was such a thing as a studding gun! I've been informed that some sort of tools are required, but what these are...I dunno! I must investigate though. I want to stud EVERYTHING. Maybe even my face. Oh wait, that's just piercing.
