Can you believe tomorrow is October? Meaning Halloween décor is the rule of the day, and it’s only a hop, skip and a jump to the dread C-word. (Not that C-word.) Today I’ll be mostly dropping off clothes to Siopaella consignment store in Temple Bar, checking out the Dublin Flea (last Sunday of every month!) and enjoying coffee in Avoca before heading to the parents’ for dinner.

Model Nadja Bender gives her nab-a-bargain shopping tips to Into the Gloss. A woman after my own heart, Bender seems to have a bit of a luxury handbag addiction. It’s tough being shallah.
I recovered some pics from London Fashion Week February 2012 – here’s my street-style selection.
Newsflash: not all men have messy wardrobes full of sports gear. Refinery29 found the exception (that proves the rule?!)
