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. But, as usual, I have some weekend reading for you!

The finalists for the Blog Awards Ireland are out. I’m not one of them, but I ain’t mad at it – I’ll be rooting for my bestie, Fluff & Fripperies. Check out her post on La Roche Posay skincare.

Jennine Jacob of IFB thinks fashion bloggers have a transparency problem. It’s something I’ve been discussing a lot of late; though legislation in the US states that bloggers must disclose when they get compensation / free goods in exchange for services, no such legislation exists in Ireland. Do you think bloggers should be honest with their readers about what they’re getting for their troubles?

The most-buzzed-about show of Paris Fashion Week? Fashionista has the low-down on Raf Simons’ new New Look for Dior S/S 2013.

I wrote about why you shouldn’t bother “learning” to be a model. Modelling is not a skill – it’s God-given, and you either have it or you don’t.

It’s Christmas at River Island – well, not quite, but we’re getting there. They have some great embellished pieces going on, not to mention some gorgeous painted faux fur. No, that was not a typo.

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.

I styled a slot on Xposé on the brocade trend – it was a lot of fun to put together, and the Trinity Capital Hotel was the perfect backdrop!

Newsflash: not all men have messy wardrobes full of sports gear. Refinery29 found the exception (that proves the rule?!)

Did you read anything this week that you’d highly recommend? Let me know in the comments – and have a great Sunday!
