Life's little luxury: Cocobelle
Shoe boutique Cocobelle is fast becoming our favourite stop for fancy footwear. This shop stocks some fab names from D&G to Nicole Richie’s very own brand, House of Harlow.
Ballet flats are a staple of any woman’s wardrobe, and we’re loving the plush pumps by Pretty Ballerinas, which come in a range of quirky patterns and shades. We predict these leopard-print pumps, €210, will sell like hot cakes. If you fancy a higher heel, then why not copy style maven — and Cocobelle fan — Amy Huberman?
For her show-stopping wedding last year, she wore a gorgeous pair of peep-toe platforms by Nando Muzi. They’re available in Amy’s shade, a pinkish nude, and in black patent, €360. Cocobelle, Royal Hibernian Way, D2, tel: (01) 707-1818
PAMELA SCOTT SKI
Dressing for a ski holiday can be a bit of a nightmare — finding a flattering bodywarmer and nailing chalet chic isn’t easy. Thankfully, Pamela Scott’s annual pop-up ski shop has come to the rescue; the South William Street shop is stacked withfur-trimmed jackets, snow boots — including these candy-coloured cuties from Olang, €69.95 — and goggles and gloves galore. This store is a bit of a godsend for those of us who like to go on the piste, and with tons of reductions of up to 50 per cent off, we know you’ll be the most stylish of ski bunnies.
