~an adventure in music~and a little fashion~

Do you love music?
This is where I post my music. One of my great loves in life. It's something I cannot be without. Carnival is my place to post what I'm listening to. It's really a blog for me, as I have rather eclectic taste in music and don't really expect many others to be right there with me! However, I do love when someone does find something that speaks to them, as has happened. Now that makes me so happy!
And please do take a peek there, just there above, where it says 'Music and Me' to see why I do.

A New Coat Perhaps?

Come to think of it, I could do with a new coat myself. This here is my favourite coat I own. It's a vintage wool coat originally from Arnotts in Dublin, I think from the 50's. I bought it about three years ago in Harlequin in Dublin. The problem is that with four children, the pale blue colour (which is one of the things I love most about it) is not really practical, and gets quite grubby.

So I've been looking around the web and found a couple of things I really love. This coat below is from one of my all-time favourite clothing company 
Old Town. It's their Overstrand Coat from £195, and it ticks all the boxes for me.

Another find is this roundneck coat £109 by Noli which can be found at Inis

And finally something from our own Avoca Anthology collection. I do like the button detail on this Love Coat, which is also available in red, mmm. Just note though the price difference: on the Avoca website, and therefore I presume their shop, they are priced at €289.95! while on a site such as Inis the price is a reasonable£100. And given the exchange rate at the moment that's pretty good.

Hi Ciara-

Great new blog. I can't wait to see your new fashion adventures.

By the by, I have always loved your blue coat. It looks great on you. As far as a new one, I think the one that would get my vote today is the Love Coat, but I like all your choices. Good luck. Aden
