One of the things we love most about blogging is discovering exciting new brands so we were delighted when Carousel, an independent clothing store in Dublin, got in touch with us to see if we were familiar with their clothing line, Circus. We knew we were onto a winner when we opened up the website to be greeted with an abundance of vintage inspired prints and shapes! A new She and Hem favourite was immediately crowned.
We were quite overwhelmed with the amount of fun prints on offer so decided it would be nice to style some separates. Being the proven hot air balloon enthusiasts that we are, we were both drawn to blouses* which bore balloons! Aren’t they cute? As they always say, you can never have too many balloons in your wardrobe. They both have pretty smashing bows too and they fit delightfully. Skirt-wise, Victoria plumped for the hot pink anchor print skirt* which has a lovely, and flattering, retro shape. The shades of pink work so nicely together and really make for a rather special outfit. My eyes were immediately drawn to the Peggy Sunnies Skirt*. Due to my tendency to sport red heart sunglasses on a daily basis, it seemed meant to be! It’s such an excellent print and despite being slightly fearful of the below the knee length, I actually found it to be a rather nice change and it will no doubt be the perfect hem line come the (even) colder weather.
We are so happy to have discovered Circus and absolutely adore their love for nostalgia inspired fashion! If you are in Dublin you should definitely go and check out their shop as it looks like a real treasure trove of modern vintage mixed with the genuine article. We’ll see the rest of you on the website!
