Vanilla Boutique...just divine!

So I had the pleasure of popping into this beautiful boutique lately, and I have to say girls it's divine!
I'd been lusting over this place on facebook, since I don't know when (becoming a habit for me isn't it?) and I wasn't disappointed.
Based in Fermoy, Cork just off the main street, it was so easy to find, and an even bigger bonus was the parking area directly across from their front door!
Stepping into this boudoir, I didn't know where to look it has amazing finds and unbelievable style, its fun, unique and bang on trend. You can stand out from the crowd with this boutique's gorgeous and affordable pieces!
It has something to suit everyone from casual to weddings, and I came across some beautiful accessories and the boots and shoes are to die for!! The boots I want weren't in my size but there's no surprise there, as anything that hits their stores flies out the door!
I met with Kate and Joy (two sisters) the two nicest girls you could meet, so helpful and fabulously stylish, they are on hand to offer any advise or keep two wee ones entertained (no mean feat ill add!).  Both offer an in-store styling service and have amazing pieces on display.

So enough about my experience, you girls should take a wander down to their store or check them out on facebook right here
Their contact number is 02533000... oh and the lovely Joy informed me they deliver nationwide and the cost is €4, even better again!
As always I've taking the liberty of snapping a few gems for you, take a peek below xxx

Amazing dress for Christmas party/wedding/new years eve,
And its onsale at the moment for €100
Look at the detail! Beautiful!
This dress below is amazing girls it has a velvety feel but the quality is out of this world, the colour is beautiful (Available in red also) Priced at €175 (see below)

This sequence beauty is €170 but its made work for its money as it can be worn with the top part or without the top part as it has a black vest underneath, very unique!
This beauty above has been reduced was €85 now €25 perfect coming up to Christmas!
This gold number is €55 and available in navy too!
In love with this jacket its divine..check price instore.
Camel is so on trend and I was in love with this the moment I spotted €45 I couldn't believe it, very similar to the Zara Coat that cost double the price! Nab it before its gone girls!

Christmas Day outfits have you got yours?

I love Christmas and in particular Christmas day, for most its a special day with family, loved ones and friends, and what better excuse than to get dressed up! Granted I'm cooking Christmas dinner this year for hubbies parents, so getting dressed up could be dangerous! what with visions of turkeys flying all over the place, gravy spills, and general chaos when it comes to my cooking (and my two crazy kids), perhaps dressing up might be dangerous! Note to not wear white!! Never the less in my childhood home place, we always got more dressier clothes than your average "Good Clothes" to wear Christmas day so basically this tradition just stuck ...every year without fail we'd get dressed up...its the perfect excuse!
For me it's not the day to throw on that tired Christmas jumper, on Christmas Day pull out your best Christmas looks, the fierce jewellery, beautiful dresses, tops, trousers and enjoy the festivities of eating and drinking way too much and general pigging out ...oh giddy with excitement it..
So in case anyone is stuck for ideas, seeing as we ticked off the Christmas party outfits and black tie/New Years eve balls, it's only fair I got you covered for Christmas day ....hope this helps girls xx
