Last week we popped into The Harlequin Vintage Store to pick out our favourite festival pieces. To be honest, we could have stayed there for hours and hours playing dress up, the place is PACKED full of amazing things at the moment. Their selection of sun glasses alone make me want to take out a small loan and buy every single pair.
With prices ranging from €11.99 – €15 it would be kiiind of rude not to buy at least one pair, right?
Lou was immediately drawn to this silver sequined top , as we here at tabitha love a bitta day time sparkles. She teamed it with some cute black shorts, beaten denim oversized jacket and an awesome black turban. Bare legs and trainers finish off this look, which I think is the perfect mix of casual and glam.
As I am a direct descendant of a magpie I,of course ,was drawn to the sparkliest, tackiest dress of them all. This bat wing number was amazing on and ridiculously warm-which is, as we all know, an essential requirement of any Irish festival attire. I teamed it with a cream chanello bag, which would be a perfect size for any gig essentials.
Lou then decided that she wanted to emulate Pete Doherty, (OBVZ) so popped this military style jacket on over a lemon silk shirt and levi cut offs. Classic Birks finish this look.
Obviously since we were festival shopping we had to try and emulate Steve Nicks SOMEHOW. I went for the 80’s Stand Back era Stevie, while Lou veered towards the more 70’s vibe.
Lots of more lovely things available at The Harlequin!
Definitely worth dropping into ahead of Electric Picnic.
