Pluck & Devour

Tonight I was invited to the launch of an extended range of millinery & jewellery by local designer, Grainne Maher at House of Fraser in Belfast. Before I show you the stunning head pieces (one of which I modelled for my outfit shot below), I want to show you some of Grainne's laser-cut perspex jewellery range, which retails online and in House of Fraser Belfast, under the brand name Pluck & Devour (website here)

As well as these designs, Grainne has butterflies, owls & howling dogs, more of which you can see on the website and in store. The prices are amazing for such unique pieces that have already got celebrity fans. Selena Gomez wore a 'bark at the moon' piece when she presented the MTV EMA's recently..
Alongside this very affordable range, Grainne is a master milliner, creating unique and incredible head pieces. Here are some of her perspex creations that were being modelled on the night:
and of course, I took the opportunity to try out the pink one myself - it was by far my favourite of the night...and toned in well with my outfit too

I had great plans for a dress tonight but the heavens opened about 30 minutes before I left the house so the M&S shoe boots came out of storage! Blazer by ASOS, neon pink top from H&M, Miss Selfridge black skinnies & the necklace is an oldie from a local boutique.
As always, I got to meet some other bloggers at the event, Katrina from Sugahfix, Gemma Louise from Champagne Lifestyle, Student Budget and Sara from Belfast Beauty Love. Show them some blog love girls!
What do you think of the Pluck & Devour pieces? I'm thinking they might make a good giveaway prize....let me know what you think! Now, off to bed with me...beauty sleep badly needed. Night All!

    Thanks so much for your latest comment on my blog :) unfortunately I am not brave enough to go without make up too often but I agree that young women put too much emphasis on their beauty products instead of their natural beauty :) xx
