Parfois - our new paramour
Maybe it's fashion blasphemy, but Coco Chanel's old adage of "look in the mirror and take one thing off" does not apply when it comes to summer dressing.
Our summer wardrobe is rarely a carefully-edited collection of ensembles, but usually the one successful pair of shorts we ever managed to purchase, a few T-shirts with, perhaps, a shirt dress thrown in. We reckon that, instead of making summer-clothing investments, the best approach is our own maxim of accessorise, accessorise, accessorise. Timed to perfection is the opening of two new Parfois stores; one in the Pavilions in Swords, and the other in the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre. The Portuguese accessories brand stays on the cusp of incoming trends. Lift and update an outfit with an inexpensive nod to whatever fad is passing - for example, emulate Rosanna's tropical trend in 'Get the Look', opposite, with this cute tote.
