My Kind Of Dress Valentines Looks




Hello all, for this post, I am delighted to be collaborating with My Kind Of Dress an Irish company set up in 2015. They stock an array of labels such as Little Mistress, Paper Dolls, Missi, AdLib, AX Paris, Closet London, Red & Royal, Chi Chi with more being added weekly. I was kindly sent two dresses that I chose online from My Kind Of Dress. They have looks to suit every budget and occasion.


With Valentine's Day approaching you might be on the lookout for the perfect date night or weekend away dress. My Kind Of Dress will have you date night ready and I chose two dresses that will have you feeling and looking fabulous. 
The first dress I opted for was the Ruflle Bodycon dress from AX Paris, a classic LBD (Little Black Dress). I think every woman should have an LBD in their wardrobe. It is a wardrobe staple, I always feel extremely glam whenever I wear a black dress and I felt fantastic in this one.

I love the ruffle detail of the dress, it gives a lovely shape to the body and it can be styled up or down. I dressed with classic black and red heels, you add that pop of colour by changing up your shoes. If going all black balance it out by adding a coloured clutch/ bag. 
If you prefer to cover your arms or you wanted to go for a smarter look then team with a blazer. That's the beauty of black, you can add some drama or keep it classy. Size wise I am a 12 and it is true to size, the dress is fitted so if you want to go up a size then do.

For my second dress from My Kind Of Dress  I wanted to step away from the classic valentines red, I went for the Pink Lace Bodycon dress. A beautiful elegant lace flared fitted dress from Paper Dolls, it has a sweetheart neckline with a built-in slip and barely there straps, it also has sleeves for those who like to have the arms covered. It gives a lovely shape once on and size wise I went for the 12 and again it was true to size.

I also styled this dress with different clutches and heels to show how can add to the dress. To be honest this dress really doesn't need much added to it as it holds its own. It would make the perfect weekend getaway dress.

Ardgillan Castle Wedding Venue Feature

Hello all, I hope you enjoyed reading my first venue feature as I am really enjoying it. I have felt so welcomed by the venues that I have visited so far.  Please feel free to share and spread the word if this feature is of interest to any engaged couples you know.

On Thursday 2nd  June I went to visit venue number two, the breathtaking Ardgillan Castle. Located between Balbriggan & Skerries. If you have ever visited here you will understand what I mean. Everytime I go to Ardgillan I literally fall in love with it all over again. Whether I go for coffee in the tea rooms, bring my daughters to the  playground or just walk around the grounds. I adore it and Ardgillan was recently featured on Lovin Dublin as the best park in Dublin to visit, now that's pretty cool.

So onto the beautiful Castle, I met with Ann-Marie and Danielle and we chatted about the venue …

Belle Mariée Bridal

Continuing on with my Bridal Feature, another shop I have recently visited is Belle Mariée Bridal, which is located at Main Street, Athboy. Belle Marie Bridal is new to Athboy, it opened it doors over a year ago and is located in the former McElhinneys Bridal Rooms. 

I know some of you will remember McElhinneys. Fiona, the fabulous owner of Belle Mariée was telling me that she bought her wedding dress from the original shop, I thought that was a lovely story and now she is the proud owner of a bridal shop in the same location. It goes to show you never know where life can take you.    



Onto the shop itself, as with my other visits I was warmly welcomed by Fiona and we chatted away about all things bridal. Belle Mariée literally oozes elegance, the decor is French elegance. Fiona has an astounding attention to detail from the way the dresses are displayed in the window and the shop, through to the lighting, the window draping, the opulent mirrors and the luxurious seating it is very fabu…
