Lahndon town!

Apologies for the GOD awful shot i took the other day! I was really really tempted not to post this one, but i was just in absolute awe of these three Londoners who managed to effortlessly mix deep green velvet dresses with docs and ripped up denim jackets.. there's a certain excitement sparked in me when i see a group of friends whose style totally complements one another, and there's not a topshop label in sight! Glee!
The girl far left (whose name has left me, along with the notepad i had scribbled it in!) is originally from Ireland and also writes for a fashion blog called! Oh and the girl far right made me completely regret being a complacent teen and not dying my hair enough...

We're back!

Dear lord!!

It's been far too long.. and BOY how things have changed! Here at dressed up in Dublin we've gone through our obligatory period of reflection and self discovery...We gained 20 pounds, lost 18, wrote a tell all novel, joined a well renowned gypsy punk band, and briefly changed our names to juan and pedro respectively.. alas we're back, sane and ready for a nice cuppa tea, a sit down and a good chinwag!

We promise to photographically harass plenty of stylish boys and gals on the fair aul streets of Dublin, eat all our greens , visit gran and tidy our rooms.

I thought this Steven Meisel photo shoot from Italian Vogue (July 2007) summed up supremely how even the most fashionable creatures can fall off the wagon sometimes! (Plus its definitely one of my favorite fashion photo shoots of all time)

Hang the djs...

Pictured here is RORY (Right) and MARTIN (Left), who both run the ROCK N ROLL RESCUE SQUAD, a promotion company in which martin is the brains, and Rory, is the beauty....or on an off day, the DJ...
Both outfits pictured have, rest assured, travelled an extremely long distance to be with us today and subsequently neither could remember THAT much about them.. However personal picks would have to be Rory's black and white hounds tooth coat and sunglasses combo, whilst martins perfectly styled scarf looks effortless
For more on some of the rescue squad's deadly nights out see

Bag lady..... we mean this in the nicest way..!

There were soo many elements of ANTONIA CAFFREY'S (20) outfit that i loved..! the jacket, from BT2's Grafton st, says laid back chic while the shoe boots, from cinders, adds a touch glamour! The gold lame bag is actually a bag she got a dress from Manoosh in, but i think it works flawlessly!

new york i love you,but....

CIAN MURPHY (24) knows a good bargain when he sees one!! His PERFECT logo ed sweater is from Chinatown, new york, along with his shoes.. his jeans on the other hand, are from Penny's, and were a steal at €4!
Cian's style inspiration? ..'Eh..none really..i like weird things..'
His favorite thing to do on Le week-end? go to gigs!

Heart shaped box...

CATRIONA O'ROURKE even outshone the newly installed Christmas lights on Grafton street in her glorious blue sequined Nike's from office!!...LOVING that topshop bag too.....
Catriona's favorite night out? Antics in Crawdaddys, on every Wednesday!

Hats n hair...

Pictured here is the lovely AIME PRIZEMAN and DEAN MCDAID, who were unsuspectingly inspecting the topshop sale rails when we pounced.
