So it’s Irish week over on Blanaid Hennessy’s blog, where she’s doing an amazing job of profiling Irish designers, bloggers and events (shaming me into oblivion, I might add) – but one of her most recent posts caught my eye in the best of ways. Following my recent call for details of more average-sized (I am loathe to say “normal” because, really, ain’t we all normal? Or else none of us are), I spied this photoshoot of Rhona Beth Ginny of Rose-Tinted Uncertainty and, well, it quite took my breath away:

This image is so beautiful: a real vintage feel, it brings to mind a book cover or a film poster. I’d buy a copy and hang it on my wall, except (in a weird way) knowing that Rhona Beth is a real person might make that just a little bit odd. . .

This image has Shutterbug (Blanaid and Eoin’s studio)’s stamp all over it – from the muted tones to the gorgeous embellishments, and the gorgeous tulle skirt is by Bonzie, an independent Irish design label.

This has me totally inspired to dig out my own leather pencil skirt, which I found in Harlequin, and style it up in some beautifully modern-vintage way . . . in conclusion, inspiring. All of it. Kudos to all involved.
