Jacket – Mango // Corset – Victorias Secret // Jeans – American Apparel // Boots – Via Spiga // Bag – Chanel
It’s been a hot minute on Tarmarz.com! Not for lack of content though, I have so many looks to share but youtube has been keeping this gal busy (latest fashion lookbook HERE). I hope you’ve all had a happy & healthy new year, I do love the fresh slate that is January. Even though I believe you can turn things around at any time of year there is something about January that is bursting with motivation & hope for the coming year thats just undeniable.
I’m starting off my first post with a ‘New Years’ inspired look which needless to say should of went live two weeks ago, but hey we can still be extra AF and wear a silky corset whenever right? This was actually one of my favourite outfits of 2017, I’m really having fun with clothes again and finding a balance between my androgynous pieces such as my new Mango blazer (which I adore, look at that raw hem detail!) and more feminine silhouettes. It feels nice to actually see my form for once which I bury so often behind my beloved oversized knits and wide leg trousers! The corset was a recommendation from my friend Jess which I honestly thought cost $500 from some fancy boutique but I was shocked when she told me if was fifty quid from Victoria’s Secret. It was love at first sight and it’s ridiculously flattering, the boning subtly poking through the silk is just divine. It comes in black too and is ideal for a night out, although you know me – I had to pair it down with mom jeans. With VS open in Dublin and online now, my irish girls you can thank me later… Almost everything I’m wearing above is on sale, the biggest steal has got to be my favourite black Via Spiga boots which are down half price from $350 to $175, insane! If you’re in Ireland by god get your hands on these with An Post’s address Pal or Parcel Motel services to get them from the US.
I wanted to share my goals for 2018 in today’s post but I haven’t quite nailed them down yet! One of them is certainly to blog more, I put up a pathetic amount of posts on here in 2017 BUT I actually still like everything I posted which is the first year thats ever happened. I cringe at everything before that! I have a feeling 2018 is going to be the best year of style for me and having Cathal around from March onward will mean much more outfits like this to come! It’s so much better having somebody around to shoot when you least expect to as those always make the best outfits. Today it ran through my head that maybe it was time to stop blogging as I haven’t been consistent and getting a post ready does take up to a full day which for an already busy person is a lot. People don’t keep up with blogs much anymore unless their posting very regularly which I completely understand. However I decided that I want to keep it and give it another shot in 2018 as I truly love the photography medium and sharing my photos in this way and will hopefully have more opportunity to shoot this year. Also the fact some of you still comment on my blog blows my mind and I always read them with the biggest grin!
To round up today’s post (*word vomit*) I wanted to share my final sales roundup – this time of year is when the best bargains are had so I hope you enjoy my edit! If you’ve got ad-blocker on you will need to disable it to see my edit below! T.x
