The Falke 'Perfect Skin' Launch @ The Merrion!

I was very excited to attend the Falke 'Perfect Skin' launch in the Merrion Hotel. It was a morning event with breakfast, manicures and pedicures and of course the nicest hosiery you can imagine. I felt like a kid in a candy shop. 

Like many of my fellow Irish cailíns I am a tights fiend. Whether barely black, opaque or nude - they are so handy and look chic. But the most important thing about tights is to go for quality. What I love about the Falke A/W13 range of tights is that when I tested their durability the material slid as opposed to snagged. They are - in my experience - very ladder resistant. They come in both shimmer and matte and there are patterned tights, wellie socks and stylish leg warmers in the range also.

Falke tights have a luxuriant velvety feel and are durable. For those of you who like to wear deep tan on a night out, you can avoid having freezing streaky pins on a night out at the stroke of midnight. The falke 'perfect skin' tights in the shade 'Brazil' are a brilliant match if you are wearing Sally Hansen airbrush legs tan in medium or deep, tan organic, cocoa brown tan or an equivalent to those brands. Alas - a win win situation.

For those of you festival goers you value the importance of leg warmers and wellie socks. You don't have to be in 'Fame' to wear them - they prevent 'wellie burn' where wellies literally conspire to ruin your weekend - think carpet burn inflicted by your trusty Hunter wellies. To avoid this you want comfort and style in muted or neon shades. At Electric Picnic I was positively smug and euphoric with the joys that were my wellie socks. With all that dancing and frolicking around you need to protect your skin against friction. Falke have warm but comfortable socks in their new range that look adorable but are practical.

You can pick up Falke tights in both Clerys and Brown Thomas - prices start at €15 but know they are a guaranteed bargain for your seasonal wardrobe.

I wore a Calvin Klein dress to the event I picked up in Nashville & teamed it with a trusty pair of Jeffrey Campbells. You can check out my outfit I wore to the launch on the Look Magazine website by clicking here! & you can 'HYPE' my look on by clicking here!
