How’s it going blogging buddies? I hope you’re all doing well! For today’s post I’m going to be answering a question that a lot of you seem to ask quite frequently and it’s why I named my blog LaDameWhoFellToEarth. The short answer is that it’s a reference to David Bowie and when he starred in the film The Man Who Fell To Earth, which is also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
I guess I have a thing for old movies and for weird movies? But anyway today I wanted to talk about this legendary rock icon and why he means so much to me in my life. I also thought it would be a good opportunity to share this outfit with you! So without further ado, let’s begin with the post.
Christmas Time in Paris
Hello my lovelies! I hope you are all doing well and that you’ve all had/are having a lovely Christmas. Right now it’s St Stephen’s Day in Ireland which in our family and in many households is basically like a second Christmas where we eat turkey and ham, drink bottomless glasses of prosecco and eat as many sweets, chocolates and truffles as the eye can see.
As you probably know from my latest vlog, recently I went out to shoot this outfit in Paris before I left the city to return to Ireland for the new year. I know I’ve worn this jumper countless times on my blog but honestly, my love affair with the cashmere sweaters from Hades is never ending. Since 2018 begun I’ve slowly been moving away from fast fashion brands and shopping more for quality pieces that I know are going to last me a lifetime. Honestly I am obsessed with how festive these photos turned out and I can’t wait to share them with you in today’s post.
Hello my lovelies! Valentine’s Day has just passed and I hope you all had a lovely time, no matter what you did to celebrate. The next big event coming up in the year is of course St Patrick’s Day and as it is my first year away from home, I’m excited to see how the celebrations will go.
I dont know about you but for me personally, the very notion of sporting a festive outfit for Paddy’s day and being clad in so much green is enough to conjure the most darkest of childhood memories. From the frumpy school uniforms we all had to wear growing up in Ireland to the cringey leprechaun costumes that flood retail displays this time of year, there’s something about the thought of the color green that so often feels so off-putting.
But looking festive on a day that celebrates our unique culture all over the world isn’t just about sporting a cringey “kiss me I’m Irish” t-shirt in the Paddy’s Day parade.
Today on La Dame Who Fell to Earth, we’ve teamed up with prettylittlething.com to bring you two looks that are equally festive as they are stylish.
