One of Ireland’s well known influencers, Joanne Larby is a best selling author, content creator, podcast host, make-up artist, and plus size model.

There are certain clothes in my dressing room that I reach for day in day out. These pieces offer a multitude of styling options, and therefore hold ‘smart purchase status’. That pair of leather trousers that take a casual look up a notch, or black leggings that work with EVERYTHING. 

It’s Black Friday, which means sales are in full swing and discounts are at an all time high. If you’re looking to invest, I’ve put together the items I would add to my cart at any time of the year. I rarely spend on the likes of tops or dresses, instead I opt for timeless pieces that will regularly work with my whole wardrobe. 

Happy New Year to you all. I do hope midst all of the madness you managed to have a peaceful Christmas with loved ones ahead of lockdown 3.0. I’m sure you’re all feeling as frustrated as I am with the current situation; the numbers are frightening and I can’t help but feel like this pandemic is causing us to pause our lives.
