Summer in Inistioge

The gardens in Woodstock remind me of a 1940s Hollywood film set, these Monkey Puzzle trees are amazing.

And this is a little rustic summer house, it has been excellently reconstructed,  it looks like something straight out of an Elizabeth Taylor movie.

More Frocks in Woodstock

I am really inspired by Costume Designer Edith Head. She was one of the leading Costume Designers during the Golden Age of Hollywood and her work is impossibly glamorous. Nominated for 35 Academy Awards she won 8, more than any other woman.

I had Grace Kelly in mind when I was designing this dress. It’s lilac taffeta with a purple taffeta border, lilac bow lined with purple. And a frilly underskirt, very important.

Tea, Cake and Frocks in Woodstock, Kilkenny

Inistioge is a very picturesque village in Kilkenny, and just outside the village you will find Woodstock Gardens, another beautiful location for a walk and some tea and cake. Oh and more frocks.

It looks like she is going to a garden party…..

There are lots of original features still in the gardens, this iron garden bench

is fantastic, the colour and texture were beautiful.

They have restored the walled garden too, it is gorgeous.

That’s the original house in the background, unfortunately it’s in ruins but what a great backdrop.
