Initially I compared the snow that is gracing us to a luscious white cashmere carpet however my opinion since last week has dramatically changed . Lets face it darlings , there is not a single pair of stiletto heeled snow boots to be had in Dublin city !!!!! We're just not fashionably equipped for these dramatic weather conditions .... very sad state of affairs .
Fret not .... I am here to help re-dress the nation and offer sensual cosy solutions to numb the chill we are experiencing.
Sensible thermal undies ... No no no ! Strictly unappetizing , quelle horreur !!! Instead think silk knickers , vests and t-shirts . Contrary to common belief silk is a warm fibre so lots of sumptuous silk layering is required . Remember one of my main fashion beliefs is to wear only what makes you feel amazing , nothing less . How glorious is the sensation when you glide into your silk french knickers and camisole ? I reccomend hand washing all silk pieces in Bold detergent - silk and jasmine . Not only will your lingerie feel amazing but it will also be deliciously perfumed !
Ensuite , I would suggest an opulent cashmere sweater or dress . Drape a flamboyant pashmina over the dress and we're almost there .
I would never exit the house in arctic temperatures without an adorable vintage fur coat . If you don't already have one , shame on you . Recently I stumbled upon a gem of a store in Rathmines , Green with Envy . The wonderful Margareth who runs this store is a sweetheart and stocks gorgeous pre-loved fur coats and jackets .
Bare in mind , to complete this hot silhouette , one's extremities need to be smothered in fur also . Nothing compares in the style stakes to a fur russian style hat . Sharp black sunglasses to combat the dazzle of the snow and thigh high boots , almost flat , did I just say flat ???? , fur lined of course and you are ready to brave the blizzard !!!
