I'm so upset that I won't be at Fashions Night Out in New York like I was meant to be. I'll have to attend vicariously through my friends over there. There is something going on in Brown Thomas over here though for all of you who aren't NY bound. This is basically the lay out of the night from BT.

Saying local Dublin label FucknFilthy has a bit of a cult following is a complete understatement. With most items limited to small order numbers, they usually sell out within a day. Take this Über cool tee shirt I bought yesterday for example. A self portrait by the beautiful Ira Chernova, a Russian photographer who can model as one of her subjects.
The shirt is almost sold out already, it was limited to 40 pieces and will not be restocked.
