How Steampunk is this!!


I just had to share this recent snap from Dad. It doesn't get much more "Steampunk" than this!!!

Its a photo taken of a local chemist/pharmacy in my hometown, Clonmel. Unbelievably this establishment was open when I was a child and Mam used to purchase ointments and interesting lotions in gorgeous glass apothecary style jars with labels and twine on them. Its got such antiquated character, almost reminds me of a set from a Tim Burton film!!

Folk often ask us where we get our inspiration from and quite simply a local building like this will fuel the creative juices every time! Honestly, can you not see a jacket in this picture??

Client Corner ~ Julia

Gals, we swooned collectively over the most recent client corner entry. Julia, Julia, Julia!!! What a wonderfully romantic shot taken by Jennifer Dominick of Love Life Images . The ruffles, the kiss, the guard of honor, the hunky uniformed hubbie!! It doesn't quite get much better than this.

Julia approached us with a need for an elegant bridal bolero to rock with her gorgeous designer dress and we were to delighted to work with this lovely lady. Julia's dress features a dramatic plunging back line and we worked together to modify our Carina bolero to work with the dress and judging from Julias picked the whole look came together beautifully. We were absolutely thrilled to receive such lovely wedding pictures back after the wedding. It was a delight working with Julia and a treat to share in the pics afterwards.

Ger and I would love to extend our warmest wishes to this remarkably lovely couple and we hope you have an amazing adventure together. ;)

Client Corner ~ Anne

We just received a batch of photographs back from some of our International clients after their weddings and we are very excited to be sharing some with our blogreaders.
Anne recently flew to Banff (Alberta), in the beautiful Rocky Mountains - to wed her sweetheart and a fabulous time was had by all. I can only imagine how magical and breathtaking the scenery was in such an inspiring location! Anne chose a Carina Bolero from our 2009bridal range to compliment her stunning couture wedding gown, in fact every piece that Anne wore on her wedding day was handmade down to the finest details. I think its this attention to detail that really brings out an aura on the day!

Anne was a dream to work with and we enjoyed receiving her pics afterwards, it really makes the exchange between designer and client super special when you get to see the piece in action on the special day!

Ger and I would like to wish Anne and her dreamy new hubbie every happiness and contentment on their new journey together. Thank you for inviting us to be a part of such a special day for you both, its been a joy working with you.

Say Hello!!!!!!!


We have a new addition to the family who wants to say hi! :)

Gilly is our very first pet and she is wee miniature "Yorky". Ive been skyping home to show my folks our newest little one and dad is calling her my new brooch. It seems everytime I go on the laptop she clambers up onto my shoulder and all the other person can see on the skype video call is a wee black ball of fluff with two little beady eyes looking back at them sitting on my shoulder!

Lets hope she likes ruffles and stuff coz soon as time permits Im gonna be decking her out in some bonzie specials. ;)

Teal Silk Bridal Bolero/Wrap!

Who would have thought 20 years ago we would be actually opting for anything other than white to get wed in! I'd imagine champagne was pushing the boundaries back then and considered quite fashion forward and edgy!

Well forward a few decades and its any one's preference. Brides nowadays are not afraid to experiment with colors and inject a shot of teal or splash of red and green into their overall bridal look. One of the best ways to remain within the safe neutral bridal colors is to introduce an accent color with your bridal accessories, whether its a head piece, a bolero or some funky corsages.
We have been sourcing some of the richest shades around to offer our bridal boleros and silk wraps in an array of colors and these will be added to the shop soon. :) We also offer most of the silk bridal boleros that you see in our store in a range of colors if you do happen to find a style you like and would be daring enough to request a hot color then get in touch, hit us up on facebook
