In the land of leprecauns and guinness...

Sunday, August 29, 2010

In the land of leprechauns, Guinness, and endless rain we still know how to work it.. street style over here in certain cities like Belfast and Dublin is totally on par with the likes of London.. (ok so maybe im bias) but you can judge for yourselves!

About a month ago i was at the biggest music festival up here called Glasgowberry, in a blur of cocktails and music i decided to take some street style/ festival chic photos of the people here.. unfortunately i have lost the details of these lovely peoples names, but I do remember most of the labels they are wearing..




How beautiful is the girl as soon as i saw here i thought she could be model.. she told me she was wearing Primark menswear denim shirt, topshop black dress underneath, Clares costume glasses, and doc martins.



It was this girls carrot top hair that caught my eye :) wearing River Island, New Look and random hat, kneee high socks over tights and wellies..



My sister tried to get this guy to swap sunglasses with her but he was having none of it.. lol.. wearing found pink sunglasses, H&M and vintage shirt.



Look at the pose on this gal she has it down to a fine art, rather envious of her chiffon vintage blouse, also wearing vintage bowler and the rest is Topshop.



These guys where great craic..totally up for the banter of getting their photo taken by a random stranger..the poor guy seemed dead nervous! lol.. He was wearing doc martins, H&M and Topman. The girl rocking the aqua blue hair was wearing vintage checked trousers, primark top and wellies..



I kinda stalked this girl around for a while trying to catch her eye, she is wearing dress from Covent Garden, London and bag and shoes are warehouse.



This girls name i do remember because when i asked her name and what brands she was wearing she said " Mags, New Look" that was it.. short but sweet!

So hope you guys enjoyed my first street style post.. if its something you like or you'd like to see again be sure to leave me a comment and tell me and ill get running round different cities and towns over here showing you more Irish style! :) x

  20. this is something I've always wanted to do at music festivals/fashion events, but just haven't had the courage to go up to a total stranger and ask to take their picture...I guess in a blur of cocktails I could probably manage it though!
