The Lovely Rhona..

Thanks to the lovely Rhona who captured Ger and I hanging out with our wares at "Style at Set" Vintage Fair, 2011.
Rhona is a really vivacious character with a wonderful fashion and style blog called "Rose Tinted Uncertainty" ( Check it out!) We had the pleasure of bumping into Rhona again recently at the Vintage Fair and she was perusing the stands with her gal pal. I was reminded of a shoot that Rhona did last year with the lovely folk at ShutterBug Photography Studios, Kilkenny where Rhona rocked our large signature tulle skirt and teamed it with a full gold sequin vest, as only Rhona could do!! I fished out the image to share with you guys!

Check out Rhona's blog for keeping abreast of her fashion offerings, it's a great read! ( Rhona also did a wee write up on her Style at Set purchase too. A cute little Bonzie Silk Corsaged Hairband)Thank You Rhona for your continued support

Absolut Style at Set Vintage Fair

Bonzie Staff Sammy getting a breath of fresh air!!!
The lovely Rosa in her new Bonzie Coquette Scarf!

Mother and Daughter combo that arrived at the fair for a browse. An absolutely darling couple with a really terrific energy, we loved these gals!! Decked out in a vintage style ensemble too!

These gorgeous little ladies arrived on the Sunday with their Mom for a browse through the fair. One of our absolute highlights of the weekend. The little gal on the left is an aspiring designer and she made her own Easter Bonnet with Tulle, Easter chicks and nestling eggs. She was a vision! Check out their little red shoes!!!!

Here's me getting my Victory Rolls from Paula of Lady Pearl Vintage Hair Specialists in Cork ( More about this fabulous new company later!!)
These ladies need a post all of their own!

As you can see we like to be comfie at work!!!!! lol Ger wearing her day wear shoes!!!

Ger was keeping hydrated..... it was an awfully warm weekend!!!
We kidnapped Brendan Courtney from "Off the Rails" for a picture and he was absolutely fabulous. A really funny and warm character, it was lovely to meet him. ( No TV presenters were harmed in the operation, honest!)
New Bonzie Beaded Necklaces for sale at the Vintage Fair...
The stunning Lauren Bejaoui modelling a bonzie ethereal cape over a stunning antique wedding gown by "Vintage Bride" in Dublin. Lauren was doing regular shoots at the fair featuring items from the stallholders, it was a terrific idea and we all got to have fabulous photos afterward. Photographer Ciúin Tracey captured the shoots all weekend. Will be sharing those shots soon too!

A side view of our stand at the fair.
Organizer: Blanaid Hennessy
Sammy joined us over the weekend to help out with the set up and stall hosting. We had a great time and she got right into the spirit of things. ( see example above!!! lol) We managed to hijack a pair of "high nellie" bikes from gorgous Dutch bike company, This Old Bike!

So we are back from our road trip at the weekend.... We had the most amazing time at this year's Absolut Style at Set Vintage Festival. The Fair was organized by Blanaid Hennessy ( a fashion and Interiors dynamo from Kilkenny!) The stalls this year were amazing and we had a chance to meet some of our gal pals from online that we have only ever spoken to through facebook etc. It was a lovely weekend and we really enjoyed meeting everyone. I will let the pictures do the talking...

Ireland's Most Influential in Fashion in Pictures..

Yes Folks, that is indeed my heel standing on Ger's Toes! As ya do!
(Champers always has that affect on ones co-ordination/balance! Poor Ger)

Us with the lovely ladies from Lockdown Modelling Agency in Cork. Another Southern Duo. These ladies are adorable! ( Oh, they also won the Top Agency Award :)
Model Faye Dinsmore ( Yes she is THAT beautiful in person!), me, Ger and Caz.

Caz getting into the spirit of our impromptu leopard print photoshoot!

Just outside the Loo's in Pink. That leopard print wallpaper sent us into a photoshoot frenzy!!!
(Ger, Me, Caz)

Lounging around!!! Shor what else would you be doing???

Just before the show kicked off. The Mansion House was such a stunning venue. Didn't even manage to capture it all on camera but the set up was beautiful!

Collecting the gorgeous Tipperary Crystal Award.

Sharing a drink with our pal Fashion Journalist/Blogger Georgina Heffernan. Such a vibrant doll!

Thanks again to everyone who voted for us online over the competition. It was a really fun trip to the Awards Ceremony and we all got a wee break from the sewing machines. Congrats to Faye for pulling off a really nice night and to Sinead Desmond ( TV3, Ireland AM) for doing a terrific job on MC. It was quite a cool event and I have no doubt it will only grow from here on in. Congrats to everyone who participated on the night. It's so lovely to see so much shining talent on one little Island!!! Perhaps if we engaged with each other more often in the Irish fashion industry we wouldn't lose so many of our young talents to fields afar. It would be nice to see some of our Irish Designers/Stylists/Photographers being able to carve our a future here in Ireland. I can only imagine that events such as this would only add and enrich the industry here and showcase homegrown talent.
