Travel Fashion Friday: Dublin

I decided to take the easy root in launching Friday Fashion day,  I decided to go with the city I lived in last spring... Dublin! When going to Dublin I didn't know waht to expect, I sort of assumed it to be like London, or Boston, but I was proven wrong. I realized that it is very stylish and very unique. The fashion there isn't always over the top, but people still like to bring out their personal style.  Tights and boots were a great staple to many outfits, along with tights and Brogues. The looks they had were simple and had bursts of colors when they wore black.
One brand I found to be everywhere that I never heard of was "Paul's Boutique".
Paul's Boutique is an English design company from Middlesex created by paul Slade. Paul began designing  20 years ago when he went to a club and took a suit he bought at an Oxfam thrift store and tore it apart and made it inside out. He was spotted by a top london designer who bought some jackets, and have been growing around  The United Kingdom and Ireland ever-since. The first place I noticed this brand was heading to the local produce stand and walked past a store that sold knock-offs,  the time I didn't know it, because I saw Paul's Bouttique quilted jackets hanigng up,  but I soon learned that this was a popular brand and many girls were wearing the quilted jackets that had patches saying "I <3 PB" 
Not only is it known for quilted jackets, but his purses have both wild and subtle patterns along with some really cool tassels hanging from the side.  These coats at first were a little much for me but then I really started to take a liking for them. They currently do not ship to the US but if you are in the UK or Ireland you should check them out! there is a whole floor devoted to Paul's Boutique located in Brown Thomas on Grafton Street.
