The Great Gatsby


When we heard that Baz Luhrmann would be bringing F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby back to the silver screen we were pretty excited. I mean, who else can create such whimsical and dramatic worlds? So needles to say, we can’t wait for the return of literary legends Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan. Take a look at some of the amazing Roaring Twenties style worn by Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio…



The Carousel Diaries: Beyonce Rocks Vintage Style!

It’s hard to believe that in just a few days Queen Bey will be back in Ireland. In Carousel we worship at the church of Beyonce! So today, in honor of the Mrs. Carter World Tour coming to town, we are gonna be spending some time talking about the Queen of Pop Culture as we ready ourselves for the big shows.

First off, let’s talk about Bey’s unstoppable style. We are known for our love of all things vintage and although B always rocks a futuristic edge, she also draws inspiration from the past! We even have a few Beyonce inspired pieces in stock right now…

B loves a good sheer blouse:

We’ve got exact matches of Beyonce’s retro sunglasses in store right now!

Mrs. Carter is rocking the monochrome look and we’ve been loving a bit of black and white ourselves:

We have just a few days left before we’ll be hosting Blue Ivy’s mamma so let’s get our facts straight. Here’s some things you may not know about the singer (aside from her body being to Bootylicious for you baaaaaaaaaabbbbby)…

  • Bee, Moth and Juju are a few of her nicknames.
  • Artists Beyonce loves? Stevie Wonder and also boy band legends, N’Sync.
  • Who is Bey’s favourite actor? Tom Hanks.
  • Beyonce has a mezzo-soprano vocal range.
  • The word “bootylicious” is now a real word as it was added to The Oxford Dictionary.
  • When Beyonce finally stopped wearing real fur, PETA sent her faux fur as a wedding present!

Now all that’s left is to get your dance moves ready! We can’t wait to kneel at the foot of her oh so high stilettos…

The Carousel Diaries: Dressed Up for Downton Abbey


The makers of Downton Abbey have just announced that they’ll be releasing a clothing line inspired by the PBS show later this year. This comes as no surprise as the show has featured jaw-dropping style since it started back in 2010. Downton also introduced us to Michelle Dockery, who is without a doubt a fashion icon in the making.

Lady Mary’s famous wedding dress broke our hearts with its understated early century simplicity.

But let’s face it: We are more in love with modern day Ms. Dockery’s impeccable approach to fashion.

She made herself noticed at the Golden Globes earlier this year in this devastatingly beautiful gold and cream gown.

We could write lots of things about Michelle’s casual looks but let’s just say this: perfection.

Good luck picking your favourite out of these three. Under duress we’ll go with the sheer elegance of the wine floor length dress with cut out detail. You could get tipsy just looking at it.

Sure, side bum might be the latest revealing trend, but Michelle proved earlier this year at the Oscars that side boob can be done in a truly classy and daring way.

We can’t wait to see what the Downton Abbey actress has in store for us on red carpets to come as well as snaps of her tailored, defined street style.

As for the Downton fashion line- we’ll keep you posted as to when that’ll be available to purchase. We’ll be very interested to see what the range will be like!
