Hello SS14!

Love love love


Coral Lace Dress

Ahh Spring, are we glad to see you! While the wintery weather might not have quite finished up, it is such a pleasure to welcome lots of spring colour, texture and detail once more to Bow & Pearl; it’s a breath of fresh air for sure.  Today we want to show you, all our lovely Bow & Pearl-ites, a sneak peek at some of the beauties we have lined up for you this season that will be arriving into Ranelagh and on-line on in the coming weeks. Be sure to let us know what your favourites are, we love your feedback!

First up are these clever combinations of stripes and pleats, two key trends for spring summer 2014. The first, shorter dress features a ribbon tie belt that can be worn to the front or the back and really works to emphasise the waistline. The horizontal stripes on both…

Recent listenings

I’ve recently been listening to the Imagine Dragons album Night Visions on repeat. Usual story, heard their song (Radioactive) in an ad, shazammed it, youtubed the song & loved the absolutely mental video, and a few other songs that were released after. My favourite is Bleeding Out, but I really recommend the album, it’s a cracking one to listen to in the car. Raging I missed them when they were here last but I will deffo be doing my best to get my hands on tickets next time!

‘Til next time….,.

Today’s outfit (31/1/14)

This evening I went to dinner (Farmer Browns if you’re wondering) for a friend’s birthday. It was all very dressy casual, so I wore this purple wrap top from French Connection, skinny flare jeans from AWear, black blazer from TopShop with a furry gilet underneath for warmth, skull print scarf & bag from Fran & Jane.


I also wore shoes I haven’t worn in forever because my first choice need to be re-heeled, and I forgot how comfy they are! They will be getting another wear soon! They are from Office, and are about 8 years old but have stood the test. I remember feeling a bit guilty about spending €60/70 on them at the time but I guess they were worth it! (I also have them in blue!)


please ignore my snazzy gold insoles!

Make up wise I did a subtle smokey eye using browns & purples. I used a no17 blusher (in plum puff) that I bought by mistake & then realised it was too purple for my colouring so have been using it as an eye shadow since, and the lighter of the two browns in Nars’ Cordura.

My hair I did a reverse plait on one side to keep all the little hairs (from my fringe) back, & then put the rest into a messy bun at the base of my skull. To reverse the dullness that can be caused by dry shampoo (a necessity if you’re going to be handling all those hairs around your face repeatedly) I used Revlon
Style Masters shine spray.

‘Til next time……
