Well last week Monsoon and Accessorize (being the same company an’ all) held their Christmas press morning, which I missed due to my own stupidity-slash-the week from hell, but I have managed not only to upload their Christmas selections to Fash Mob’s Facebook page (search Fash Mob and then wreak havoc!) but I have also managed to procure two shots from said photocall:

I love this look – so demure, with the high collar and the loose trousers, yet sexy with the peep-toe killer shoes. Also, whoever did the make-up did a top-notch job: love the smoky eyes and would hugely appreciate a tutorial on the same.

Ah, Irish models. Instead of standing up straight, let’s stick our hips out and wish for the best (Irish model posture: one of my biggest bugbears). Anyway these are three of Monsoon’s night-time looks, and I have to say that I love the pairing of the floral dress in the back with the ankle boots, a look that I will most definitely be trying out.

HOWEVER, Monsoon has yet to sort out its sterling-euro exchange debacle, and until it does I shan’t be doing any shopping in its Irish stores. How about you?
