Christmas Party Fashion

Christmas party season is now in full swing. I was in desperate need of some sparkly clothes for the upcoming party season so one fine Monday, my mother and I took a trek to Fermoy.

We trotted around the town looking in all the shops leaving the best to last, and the never disappointing – Vanilla Boutique! It has been way too long since I was last shopping in this wonderful shop. I bought my 18th birthday outfit in here and after that Vanilla was my go-to “important outfit” boutique. I have been away in Australia for a few years but kept a close swooning eye on the very active Facebook page while I was away. The shop itself had gotten a facelift since I was in it last, I was particularly impressed with the fluffy floor in the changing room!

I have two party events coming up that I was looking to buy outfits for. I was hoping to buy a mixture of items that I could mix with items that I have in my wardrobe already. Vanilla is beautifully stocked for all occasions, whether you need something casual or black-tie, the lovely Bríd and Joy are at hand to offer help.

Heres a peak of what I got..

Ballerina Top

I love this top because you can wear it two different ways! It is a wrap top which makes it very versatile.. you can choose to show a bit of cleavage or not, mix and match any look and will go with everything in your wardrobe!

Beaded Crop Top

I adore this beaded crop top. When The lights hits against it, prepare to be dazzled because you will be twinkling!

I picked up two fabulous skirts. I’m wearing one of them in the photo directly above, but I didn’t get a full length shot of it. It nips in at the waits and flares out knee-length.
The second skirt is this black bow tie high low skirt which I absolutely adore! It fits so nicely and is so comfortable!


It was a very successful day to Fermoy and I was delighted with what I got.

The Dotty Lemon

All the jewellery I’m wearing in the pictures above is from The Dotty Lemon which is a glorious online shop filed with gorgeous jewellery and other quirky bits and pieces! I got to sample so many items from the shop and can confirm that the quality of each item is second to none. The jewellery have a great weight to them and are reasonably priced. I would highly recommend many pieces from here.. go online to and see for yourself!


Happy shopping everyone! I hope you find what you are looking for coming up to the party season! Vanilla Boutique in Fermoy is where you will definitely find something amazing if you are looking and accessories are brilliant from The Dotty Lemon. A special thank you to The Hibernian Hotel in Mallow for allowing us to take pictures there.

Until Next Time,
