60 Seconds of Forfey Festival

A few weeks back I attended a very wet festival just outside Enniskillen. My feet were soaking wet for two days, our tent flooded, but all was well. Except for video footage.


Unfortunately due to the lack of comprehensible footage, it was best that this Vlog was cut short. So here we have a short 60 second of what my weekend was.






Enjoy,

Venterview

Hey Chummies,


Thought I would just drop by and post a link to Vintage Belfast's page and let you know about an interview I did for them. It could be a great way to find out a little bit more about VENT.






Have a great weekend guys!

MEG // 14 // STUDENT

When I was fourteen I was definitely wearing striped socks with hand-me-down dresses (it truly was a tragic time), yet here Meg is sporting some serious style that I could only dream of at her age.
Her cute pixie cut is flawlessly perfect with her cream H&M dress. She talked of how she loves fit and flare dresses that show off her petite figure, but how she always teams her pretty with some punk (see boots). I love her satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Company – it adds the perfect burst of colour to her monochrome get up. Top marks all round!






SIRI // 23 // TEXTILE ARTIST/ STUDENT

This is what I think of when I think Casual Smart. A tailored jacket with a float-y dress or skirt, teamed with some sneakers. Siri’s playful character comes through with her amazing cat bag and cartoon converse. It was a sunny but mild day when Siri called in, and the way the light passed through her pastel pink skirt was so beautiful. I love maxi skirts so much, and even picked up a pastel pink one later that day after being so inspired by Siri! 






RÓISÍN // 20 // STUDENT

It was such a grim day when Róisín called into the shop. Puddles everywhere and general damp moods but her wee face surely brightened my day. She braced the weather in this adorable Dunnes Stores Dress (from the kids section!) and sweet rain mac. Róisín talked about how she enjoys the little details in her outfits and here she has a really cute cameo necklace on that added even more girly vibes to her look. I had to get a photo of her bake, she was just so bubbly.







 STELLA // 20 // STUDENT

Here is Stella, Róisín’s fashinspiration and buddy. I loved her H&M baby doll dress, layered with a big coat and boots, she just looked adorable. I love her tiny necklace as it seemed to be such a minor detail, but it really stuck out for me. Stella talk about how she is inspired by the Teddy Boy look from the 60s/70s and styles herself with a general smart yet comfortable look. She really makes me want to add another pair of black boots to my already extensive collection. 







AND WHAT I WORE : 

Amazing quality image…not.  This was one of the first times where I have let myself loose with a camera in hope of creating something mildly professional looking. I fear it has not worked.
But anyway, it’s all about the outfits and getting to be a little nosy, am I right?
Here I am wearing trusty Topshop Joni Jeans, one leg rolled higher than the other (because that’s fashionable right?), along with my Topshop velvet brogues. The obsession with Orange continues with my new orange cropped jumper from H&M, over a fitted white shirt from ASOS.
As of late I have taken to plaiting my hair down the middle and out of my face. It is the quickest and neatest hair-do that I can pull off in a matter of minutes, so perfect for my early mornings! I am growing my mini-fringe out (I think) and it seems to hide all sins quite well.. but maybe I should just keep the crop? Who knows. #firstworldproblems

Is this what you guys have been looking for, 
or would you prefer if I hit the streets with Matthew again? 
Let me know!

Day Trip to Chic | Dark Hedges | OOTD





Hey Chummies,

Here's another quick OOTD post that I took on a trip to Bregagh Road, before packing up and hitting the road to Forfey Festival. 
As soon as we arrived at the festival, it started to bucket down and didn't stop until this morning when we were leaving. But despite the monsoon, I had a great weekend off work and hanging out with friends. Expect a slightly dodgey vlog to come!

In this post, I am wearing a beautiful and classy vintage skirt from Yellow Submarine Belfast, which has become one of my favourites already! I think it is so easy to dress up or down and has such great summer colours throughout it. I am getting rather excited for layering, and in the last few weeks the irish summer has been more like autumn, but I am not letting go of my summer sandles just yet. I LOVE these Vintage Style pumps in white, and they aren't a farcry from Topshop's Giggle Sandles (That I have lusted over all spring!). 

I have always really loved the Dark Hedges, and every so often I will make a point of stopping by to look at the changing colours of the season. I was in love with the picturesque barley field beside the road and it looked like it was straight out of a movie!
I made a short video to accompany this blog post with Niall (who is possibly the worst camera man ever. God loves a try-er).

Thanks for stopping by today!

First Vlog Freak-Out

Hey Chummies,



Okay so I know that I was nattering on about getting vlogging on the go aaaaages ago.. but now I am actually gonna give it a go!


I took two days out of my week last week to video some of little life events..but it is just TOO cringey to video myself talking. I was editing this back criiiiiinging so so much about talking to the camera. I guess that's just one of those things that anyone from Northern Ireland hates.. I hope it was a little entertaining anyway. I just don't really know what I am doing with this stuff yet. Let me know your thoughts on it, as I have no idea.



Anyway, Here goes nothing!

Come Away With Me

 

Hey Chummies,

So I am still struggling with getting my internet connection working! SO SO TRAGIC.. How did people ever function without a WIFI connection before?

I am about to start another shift in my new job (dream job might I add!) and I thought I would pop into a coffee shop and quickly add this little update.I am really excited about my new job in Yellow Submarine (remember that place I did a collaboration post with here?). It is going to tie in so well with the blog as I plan to get cracking on the WHO//WHAT//WEAR posts during my shifts in there (because the customers are just so goddamn stylish!) So hopefully that means I will be able to update more often. I can't wait to share some of the things I have been working away on in there (ie: murals and styling).

These images were taken on the same day as the last post. How was I to pass up weather like that without making the bloggy most of it!? 

I am in love with this boho shorts courtesy of Missguided. They are definitely the shortest piece of clothing I own, but I am getting the legs out because the weather was just too warm to wear tights! It was crazy to think that Ireland was even that warm!

I am leaving Boojum (a Mexican burrito bar I have worked in for over a year) in the next week and I am really excited about making the most of my last month of summer before going back to student life again! I can't wait for my free time as it will mean that I will have so much more going on, and can Vlog more, which is something that I just haven't been thinking about much, until now. My first Vlog will be up this week, and despite how messy and poorly edited it is, I hope that I can better myself at it, and be a little entertaining!

Something else that was a great surprise was finding out that VENT//threads had been nominated by you lot for a place in the Ireland Blog Awards under the Best Newcomer Blog award, and the Best Fashion Blog Award. This is a really neat thing as I never publicized the idea of even voting for vent and it has really made me passionate about bringing more content to you loyal fabulous weirdos who have taken the time to read me jabber on (like right now) and sneakily vote. Gosh, Love you like.


You are the best best BEST!

Had Me A Blast, Happened So Fast.



OUTFIT : 
dress : newlook*
kimono : newlook
socks : lazy oaf
boots : topshop
earrings : pretty please
sunnies : primark


Hey Chummies!

I am writing this post from a Starbucks because our internet has been cut off for no reason and I have no idea how to fix it..without the internet. Typical ey?

I am actually so paranoid that somebody might be sitting behind me reading what I write, or just thinking I am a vein wee shite for posting photographs of myself on the web. How ridiculous a thought to come from someone who solely posts images of herself onto the internet.

And believe it or not, it has really taken a bit of time getting used to the camera and building up the confidence to wear outfits like this one.
I have always had issues with the size of my legs, and even more-so my pale pastey-ness, and letting my arms out without hiding them behind a cardigan is something that I have only started feeling comfortable doing this year. 
Hell yeah, it takes confidence and guts to be a big poser don't ya know?


I would also like to point out that this dress was on back to front all day; which is something I should have guessed earlier when my boobs kept peeking out. But it's still a really pretty summer dress! White is taking over my wardrobe and I am falling for boho chic once more!

Anyway, I must finish editing my first vlog so that you guys can get nosey at what I got up to on this day! (;
