Sometimes life is extraordinary ! Recently when Biba and I met the charming Mark Andrew Adams we shared the same thought ... We have to shoot this guy , it would be so rude not to !!!
We immediately put a date on the shoot and chose a location . I was so looking forward to shooting a guy . Most of you will think there is no need to style a guy . So wrong !!! Biba and I have decided to take on the male population in Ireland and create fashion shoots worthy of submission to Vogue Uomo Italia. Both of us have a dear love for beautiful men ! Biba is currently doing some great work with professionale boxers . I love working with this girl because she has a sharp eye for detail and our shoots are always pain free and fun . She has the ability to put our models at total ease . Mark did not flinch once when she asked him to remove his clothes ..... And I was of course delighted ! Mark's spectacles needed constant adjusting , and I was only to happy to attend to my duties .......
Mark , you're a total sweetheart and adorable , we both enjoyed working with you and hope you love the photos as much as we do . X

My ultimate store for guys is Indigo and Cloth . Situated in a basement in south william street , this store has the coolest menswear in the country . Acually I love everything about this place including the edgy ladies collections . Gareth the owner will happily point out if you're looking for bling bling and sparkly this is not the shop for you ! I picked a simple black dress from the rail and I just knew it would drape and skim the body in all the right places !
Sorry guys , I've drifted ... lets get back to you . I would suggest you get your cute bums to this store asap . The space is funky and edgy and I love the energy . Its the type of store I usually find in Paris and London , minus the pompous attitude .The lovely Gareth knows his product inside out and will happily chat and suggest suitable pieces for you .
Gareth darling .... loving your work and enthusiasm for beautiful and discreet clothes for men and women !
PS : The new magazine corner ........ J'adore !
Harlequin . But only because I always manage to find what I 'm looking for . During Mark's shoot I suddenly realised he would look amazing in a panama hat and a silk scarf . After a brief think , I went to Harlequin where Fiona is always so helpful . She had everything I needed and more . Their menswear is in the basement and I found the perfect wool tailoured waistcoat for Mark . Guys this place is perfect if you have a great eye and a small budget . Harlequin have a superb selection of hats and vintage ties .
Its the type of place where I would love to organise a lock-in ! An ali baba cave crammed with lots of irresistible clothes and accessories for boys and girls !
Lots of kisses to Susan and Fiona ❤
Optilase in Dublin .
They have a spectacular collection
of brands , including the gorgeous Cutler and Gross which rates high in my love stakes !
Rachel or Steven will happily show off their catalogue and the choice of colour is almost over whelming !!
Another one of my sweethearts is PattiPaillette .
You need to see this girls ..... very very cute !!
@ Darling Mark , I must say the emerald green Cutler and Gross frame was so gorgeous on ya !!
Mark's gorgeous shoes are Lanvin for H+M .
Just a little note on this collection Menswear = Totally Divine !
Ladieswear = Soso !
The queing system was fairly ridiculous and 15mins to shop only ..... Amusing if nothing else
As you know I am a lover of contradictions .... Therefore a
slick guy in a sharp suit will of course require some rock'n
roll jewellry . Where ? Genius of course ! This store is
reknowned for their casual gear , jeans and hoodies etc .
They also stock an incredible range of watches and jewellry for men !
I fell in love with a gorgeous watch from Fossil . Big
face on a chunky luscious red leather strap that was so perfect
for my styling intentions with Mark.
A man's choice of watch is detrimental to his charisma .
One of the sexiest part's of a man is a tanned wrist with
a bold chunky timepiece . An ostentacious watch will always
set my pulse racing !
Leather bracelets and chunky link bracelets from Diesel ,
Fossil and Stream also delighted me .
And if like me you don't want to see another Dolce and Gabbana
rosary bead , check out Uno . Silver chains with
ornate crosses to die for !
Genius also stock cool leather trainers which are so right
worn with a sharp suit , a black v neck t-shirt +heavy wrist jewels .
A man must always smell good and my favorite scent at the moment is
Terre D' Hermes . Not to be sprayed sparingly .....Lots si 'l vous plait !!
A huge thank you to all at The Westbury Hotel . XXXX
Biba + Mark ... I had so much fun with you . Lots of love . ❤
