I feel like a short few years ago, a rail sale was a rare and almost unheard-of occurrence; now, they crop up as often as Jodie Marsh does at an envelope opening. But for anyone who loves a good rummage, their ubiquity can only be a good thing!

This Sunday, November 4th, stylist Courtney Smith is holding the inaugural Fashion Fallout event in Krystle Nightclub in Dublin, from 12pm to 6pm. Entry is free, but donations at the door will go to the Dublin Simon Community, a Dublin-based charity that fundraises for homeless services in the area.

On the day, top stylists, models and slebs including Rozanna Purcell, Lorna Weightman, Glenda Gilson and Jennie McGinn, as well as shops Fran & Jane and Shutterbug vintage, will be hosting rails full of clobber on sale to the public. And you know what they say: one woman’s trash . . . Courtney will also be doing hourly fashion shows with top Irish models, and Pamela Laird will be doing attendees’ nails on the day.

All in all, it sounds like a pretty fun, fashionable day out. If I weren’t going to be in Iceland (you heard me), I’d be there with bells on.
