Both male and female models presented themselves beautifully, however the clothes did not reflect that. Anyway it is not for me to judge. Quite girl in jeans, that has just arrived from Eastern Europe.
The clothes that were modelled came from stores found around Dublin. The prices ranged. Oufits that could be seen came from Penneys (Primark), New Look, Debenhams, H&M, Peekaboo. Different styles of clothing. Starting from elegant, to casual/sporty and ending with trashy. This is how I see it, you can decide for yourself, since I included the photo report from the Dublin fashion week.
Quality, expensive and brand clothing
Brand clothing can be tempting. It is nice to carry a Prada bag, wear Chanel perfume and walk in Louboutin shoes, well known brands and high end prices, but when it comes to quality does the brand matter? Well known and prestigious brands could not afford a mistake. We could only be disappoined if we buy knock offs. Do we really need these luxouries products in our everyday lives, working full time, or worst of all if we are on social welfare? Our clothes should match our lifestyle and unfortunetely our income. Sales can be a good time to update our wardrobes. Sales should be used on getting items that can be mixed and matched with as many things as possible. It is like a ”must have” of everything. Men have it easier, for most of them, two pairs of shoes is enough. Women… oh well. We need flats, fancy high hills for going out, low or mid heels for work and boots, not to mention we need them all in as many different styles and colours.
Affordable but still good quality
Stylish clothing, classic, and the ones that never go out of style are all worth buying, keeping in mind good quality and durability. You can’t even see that label! And because of that we can have a collection of clothing for different occasions which we can mix and match, adding accessories and trendy pieces. If you are having a hard time deciding what is a ”must have”, take a look at Katarzyna Kedzierska’s blog. I don’t like extravagant clothing. Sporty-elegant is the way to go, simple outfits effectivily matched together are perfect for my current life style. It is much better to buy one piece of clothing that matches your style and still looks great after many washes than a trendy piece that you can only wear this season. So without looking at what others are wearing, go shopping and update your autumn collection.
