If, like me, you're currently waiting patiently for Meghan Markle to walk down the aisle, you might want to pepper the celebrity spotting and outfit-watching with a little virtual window shopping. Here are three fresh online shopping websites you may not know of yet.
Me+Em has become one of my favourite labels recently. It's not cheap but it caters so well for women who want sophisticated pieces that are directional too. It's also a great website to get styling tips from. The pairing below of a luxe satin sheen maxi dress with a boyish pinstripe blazer is beautifully modern.
Stitch detail maxi dress, €284.79, pinstriped jacket, €261.91 at meandem.com
La Garconne is perfect for women with an edgy sense of style. It stocks labels from Acne Studios and A.P.C. to Army by Yves Salomom. The collection is beautifully curated for women who have an androgynous aesthetic, so oversized sweaters, masculine coats and tailored pants are the bedrock of the edit.
One-shoulder gathered top, €338.55, classic slip skirt, €224.29; both Marques' Almeida at lagarconne.com
Irish designer Rae Feather has built a brand of luxury beachwear that includes a personalisation service. If you're fed up buying cheap throw-away kaftans etc, then this label will appeal to you. Feather actually has a pop up store in Dublin until next Thursday, May 24 at Helen Turkington in Ranelagh. Head on over to get a better feel for the brand.
