Just stepping inside Leitrim-based store Kabuki Boutique makes us feel more elegant.
Not only is there a fantastic mix of labels — Dice Kayek, Notte by Marchesa and Philip Treacy, to name a few — but the shop itself is ultra-glam, with lots of heavy gilt mirrors, plush armchairs and chandeliers. It’s clear that owner Louise Merrick has a great sense of style and this season, Kabuki has several new labels in store, including Irish label, Shecanko. Gillian Sheehan’s designs are always unashamedly girlie and this ivory and gold jacquard dress, €449, is no exception. Kabuki Boutique, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co Leitrim, tel: (071) 961-6505
