The trick of find­ing amaz­ing pieces and putut­ting your own stamp on them

This week, we meet style queen Jess Bren­nan. Al­ways ad­ven­tur­ous with her out­fits, Jess’s con­fi­dence is some­thing to be en­vied. She gives us the low down on how to be bold with your look and a glimpse into her fab­u­lous life. Tell us about your out­fit? I’m very into buy­ing pieces and pimp­ing them up to suit my­self. Found these boots in the Ilac cen­tre for ¤10 and then sprayed them gold. What I love most is the spray cracks and fades with wear so it’s like shabby hooker chic. Next, my Stay Deadly smi­ley T-shirt dress – I cus­tom-make these bad boys and they will be avail­able to pur­chase in the up­com­ing Stay Deadly Ap­parel shop in Dublin’s Tem­ple Bar. My favourite thing about these is they are comfy, they are uni­sex and above all you can’t help but feel happy when you wear them. I look down or catch s glimpse of my­self wear­ing these and can’t help but let out a lit­tle gig­gle.

I got my bam­boo Bar­bie ear­rings on­line some­where ages ago. Couldn’t re­sist they re­mind me of a bub­blegum chew­ing ghetto Mi­ami Bar­bie. Sun­nies are from Aldo. These are prob­a­bly the most ex­pen­sive sun­glasses I’ve bought and were only ¤20.

And last but not least my hair – one thing about my­self that is al­most al­ways chang­ing. |I was neon yel­low for the sum­mer but have since toned it down (yes down) – I wanted to be a pi­rate ice queen for win­ter. De­scribe your per­sonal style? It’s just me – a big messy mash of psy­che­delic cy­ber-bunny ghet­topi­rate fes­ti­val-hoochie chic. What up­com­ing event are you most look­ing for­ward to? Ev­ery week there’s some­thing on that I’m buzzing for. There are also a lot of psy­trance events com­ing up around Dublin which is great. A lot of peo­ple seem to love the psy stages at fes­ti­vals, but then think there are no psy club nights in Ire­land – how wrong they are. This genre is alive and more buzzing then ever.
