Another Dublin city update – there’s a sample sale in Dublin this Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the Italian quarter by Jervis St Luas stop. I did a post a few months ago on their spring/summer press day and I really liked their stuff – nice, summery dresses in a variety of styles and fabrics, with different sizes for each style. Items at the sample sale will start from a sweet €5 and the sale will run all weekend from Friday at 12pm.

Here’s their summer lookbook, in case you need a further reason to go in (oh, and if you leave a comment on the Facebook page, you get €5 off your first purchase . . .)

This is my absolute favourite kind of lookbook: with a dreamy, vintage feel and washed-out hues, and girls who look just that little bit sleepy, as if they’ve just woken up from dreams of beaches in the 1960s. And isn’t that just the most darling image, of the two girls sunbathing in their summer dresses? If only us Irish people were so modest; this weekend past, I headed up to the Phoenix Park in my bikini to sunbathe. And just the other day I went to the shop in my pyjamas. Next thing you know, I’ll be an Ugg-owner. Oh, hang on . . .
