My Dress (You can buy here)
Hello everyone! If you follow me on Facebook or Snapchat (@martinasmark) you will know that I made my first television appearance on TV3's Ireland AM this morning. I was delighted to be asked by such a reputable television company to make an appearance and it really was an amazing experience. I won't lie, I was beyond nervous as the closest I've been to appearing on TV was when my dad made a home made video of our sports day
When I heard I had to chose my model I knew instantly who I wanted to chose - my very beautiful sister-in-law to be, Eimear (I am certainly marrying into good genes!) I could not have been happier with her performance and considering this was her first modelling experience she was like a professional model! We had to recreate a Cheryl Fernandez Versini look based on something she wore recently. I chose this particular dress that she wore at the Cannes Film Festival 2015.
I chose this look as I felt it matched my own asthetic perfectly and it would be something I would genuinely wear. My intention was never to fully copy the look as I feel fashion is more about taking elements you like about an outfit and making it your own. I love the lavender colour as I think it is so unusual and would suit a lot of different skin tones. Lace is without doubt my favourite material and if you follow my blog regularly you know this to be true! While I didn't win the challenge I was not left disappointed. I was delighted to be asked to appear on TV3 and was given the opportunity to hopefully reach out to many more new viewers!
