Homage to Iris Apfel overthehilda

This month, we at ‘Style Not Age’ pay homage to the style icon, Iris Apfel. This legendary lady died last month aged 102. You can check out our post two years ago on this amazing woman HERE. IRIS APFEL’S STYLE Iris Apfel was not an advocate of minimalism. I have her book ‘Iris Apfel Accidental


‘Put a bow on it’ was Emma’s choice this month. So that is what we did. I seldom wear this red top (years old from H&M) so decided it deserved an airing. These wide-leg trousers (Paul Costelloe) are also years old and I wish I had them in a few different colours. The fit is

Hello, my friends. The girls at ‘Style Not Age’ are on Red Alert. Maybe Jacqui was thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day, when she gave us this prompt. Red is one of my favourite colours, so I was happy. In fact, I had two outfits with me on our recent stay at The Rabbit Hotel and

Fraxel before and after close up

Have you heard of Fraxel Laser? I am blown away by my results following just one treatment at RIVER MEDICAL Dublin. The photos below (taken just 10 days apart) tell the story.

Jeans and Jewels

Anna chose ‘Jeans and Jewels’ as our prompt for October. How can it be the end of October already? There is nothing new in my outfit. I chose my favourite jeans of the moment from Studio 124, bought several months ago, but I think they have been re-stocked. The jumper and bag are several years


I recently had an online consultation with The Dr Laura Clinic in Galway. It got me thinking! How do we choose skincare? I used to be swayed by words like new, innovative and, of course, anti-ageing. But, now, I like to think that I am more informed. I want my skin to be healthy and,

Power Dressing

Power Dressing is this month’s theme in ‘Style Not Age’. WHAT IS POWER DRESSING? Initially, when power dressing was a new trend, back in the ’80s, women wore suits to make an impression in the workplace. They dressed more like men to show they were every bit as capable of climbing the corporate ladder.  But

Crushing Crochet is our ‘Style Not Age’ theme for August. Unfortunately, instead of crushing crochet, I tripped a week ago and crushed my fingers and fractured a bone or two. But it could have been a lot worse. I might have broken a wrist or some teeth. And teeth are expensive to fix! So, I
