Hi! I'm Fiona, an Irish girl living in the UK. Lead singer in rock/pop band Alter Ego, I have a passion for fashion and great music! I own far too many clothes and some very cool photographers take photos of me wearing them all! I hope my blog reaches people who share my obsession with fashion, style and beautiful things! Thanks for stopping by! Fx

We were invited to a Leopard Party. Why was it a Leopard Party you might ask? Well, our friend Phill had recently returned from a holiday in Africa where he had been attacked & bitten by a Leopard (he'd been stung by a scorpion on his previous trip there!). He was fine thank goodness & quite proud of his battle scars so what else could he do upon his return but have a Leopard Party!

I didn't struggle with this theme as I do rather like a bit of leopard print. I wore the Reiss 'Myla' dress (one of the best value piece I have ever bought) & paired it with the Reiss 'Lexie' belt & Topshop 'Adina' platform boots.

I love Reiss; yes I think it's fair to say that I am a 'Reiss Girl'. It has become my 'go to' store for beautiful dresses, especially to gig in, and their current collection is to die for!! Check it out here and prepare to actually drool!

Boho Babe

It's no secret that I am a big fan of Nicole Richie's fantastic clothing range Winter Kate. Her S/S12 collection is her best one yet & I am saving up like a little Squirrel to buy as many pieces as I can! No mean feat when I also have my greedy eye on the current Twenty8twelve & Reiss collections!

I won't lie, it was difficult choosing my first piece from the new collection as...well... I want it all! But choose I did & I was not disappointed when the UH-MAY-ZING 'Bindaas' scarf print silk kaftan arrived in the post! It reminds me very much of a dress my Mum wore when I was about 7 years old (I have my whole family searching for a photo to show you!). The dress is quite simply stunning, a real show-stopper. The delicate Spring-like colours make it deliciously versatile & I am completely obsessed with it!!

While dear ol' Blighty is still a bit chilly, I shall be wearing it with black tights, shoe boots & an oversized boyfriend cardigan for day wear and with a tailored Tuxedo jacket for the evening. Its first outing however (date night with Hubby!) was a beautiful, rather unexpectedly sunny evening and I wanted to glam it up and really embrace the 70s/Boho vibe you can't help but get from this gorgeous piece. I kept it simple & teamed it with pieces from Nicole's fantastic accessories range House of Harlow 1960 & the best patent nude heels I've come across on the Highstreet in a very long time, Geri (Halliwell) by Next!
