The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | GOING OUT - Emma Fraser

This week we met Tara Ste­wart – mu­si­cian, cre­ative, pre­sen­ter, con­sumer of wine and drinker of green tea. Tara’s cre­ativ­ity is ex­pressed in her cloth­ing. Get her vin­tage look with our help­ful tips and check out Tara’s mu­sic and art at tara-ste­wart.com

1 Boots: Cater­pil­lar boots are like army tanks for your feet. Ain’t noth­ing get­ting through th­ese bad boys! They will keep your feet dry and warm when you are walk­ing through the spring pud­dles. They will also last for a cen­tury and the more dis­tressed they get the bet­ter they look. A great al­ter­na­tive to Dr Martens.

2 Tur­ban: Get the Es­merelda look with this gor­geous vin­tage tur­ban. Etsy.com is the per­fect place to find th­ese beau­ties. Prices range from ¤8-¤15. Per­fect for those bad hair days too.

3 Trench­coat When search­ing for such a spe­cific vin­tage item make sure to shop around. Start with a Google search or try the smaller on­line vin­tage stores on Etsy and Asos Mar­ket­place. Just make sure to give as much de­tail in your searches as pos­si­ble. The one pic­tured is ¤38 from Nine Crows at shop­ninecrows.com.

4 Top: The more gold the bet­ter. This gor­geous top from H&M will dress up your ca­sual week­end look, €22. A good ex­cuse to visit the beau­ti­ful new H&M on Col­lege Green in Dublin.

5 Watch: Ca­sio watches are such a great ac­ces­sory. Per­fect for boys and girls. Avail­able from Ur­ban Out­fit­ters and also can be found at great prices on­line.
