The Style Fairy

We recently invited Irish fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger 'The Style Fairy' aka Naomi Clarke along to Kildare Village to take a look at the range of occasion wear brands available in the Village.

The Village boasts an array of choice for women's fashion from The Kooples, Ted Baker, Reiss, Só Collective, Diane von Furstenberg and French Connection to Kurt Geiger, LK Bennett, Karen Millen and Jigsaw (to name just a small selection!!). You can view the entire list of brands available here.

Naomi was blown away by the range of discounts available, with boutiques offering savings of up to 60% off the recommended retail price, if you need a look for any occasion you'll find it in the Village!

And it is not just the ladies who are catered for, for the gents there is Hackett, Brooks Brothers, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Jack Wills and there is a great selection for the kiddies too with the likes of Joules (one of my Naomi's favourite kids' brands), and also Pretty Ballerinas, Hackett, Cath Kidson and more!

Taking a break from shopping

To keep the little ones occupied while you shop till you drop there is a playground with lots of place for the kids to run around and there are a variety of choices for lunch or coffees if you need a shopping break, including Le Pain Quotidien, Dunne & Crescenzi and Joe's coffee, perfect for a family day out.

During her time in the Village, Naomi was on the hunt for her ‘Top Picks’ when it comes to occasion wear, whether it’s communion, confirmation, a christening, a summer wedding or the upcoming races (Punchestown is only weeks away!!). Here is just a selection of what caught her eye:
