Monochrome Warrior

This is my first outfit posting on ‘THE FASHION HORN.’  I went to one of my favourite hidden gems in Dublin, the Iveagh Gardens in Clonmel Street, just behind the National Concert Hall. I’m wearing a McQ Alexander McQueen caped shirt from the Pre-SS14 collection with a neoprene Abercrombie and Fitch skirt (current collection) and Office shoes. The bag I’m rocking is new and it’s Dune from TK Maxx which just opened up new stores in Dundrum and the Ilac Centre.

Monochrome mania

What I had the horn for at the Iveagh Gardens:

  • The rose garden
  • The little squirrel I saw bounding about the trees
  • The red breasted robin I saw singing his heart out, a true sign that Christmas is coming
  • The rustic grotto
  • My clothes (natch)
