Five things you need to own NOW

Its shaping up to be a super Summer of gigs and ligs with Arcade Fire, The Pixies and Run the Jewels all hitting these shores over the next couple of months. So what’s a gig-going gal to wear?  Plenty of sequins and stars plus lashings of eye make up should see you right.

the top

Catch the light in this celestial top from River Island. Ok not the most practical colour for hiding beer stains but won’t your V-V-VIP lanyard follow the V neckline down nicely.

the skirt

Right, it’s a little short, but this black denim zip through skirt is adorable and some opaques should save your blushes if you’re not up for total exposure!

the mascara

The YSL mascara classic Volume Effet Fau Cils has been given a makeover. The shade is still inky black, plus its been clinically proven to thicken lashes AND it still stays on, literally, all day! Now though, the classic golden cylinder is wrapped in a fistful of black stars, twinkle, twinkle.

the trainers

Unless you’re Sarah Jessica Parker, who probably goes to bed wearing hers, heels at a concert  are a no go. They might give you a couple of inches to see over the extremely tall person who plonks themself in front of you but then how are you gonna dance? Pop some high tops and you are game.


hi-tops, €37,

the earrings 

The top has got all the sparkles you need, so a geometric dropped earring is just enough embellishment. These ones from New Look are ace.

Share the joy
