The CFDA Awards or Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards are always one of the most highly anticipated red-carpet events of the year, especially to anyone who truly loves fashion. Its one event where everything is about the fashion and because of that the moguls, stars, celebrities and designers all tend to bring their A-game. Except this year I have to admit I’m not all that impressed. Of course, some celebrities stunned but as a whole I was left rather disappointed. Here are my favourites and my not so favourites from the star studded event.


Blake Lively


If you know me you will be in no way shocked that Blake has made top of my list as she’s my ultimate style crush. She kept it simple in a short, beaded gold Michael Kors dress and teamed it with plush pink shoes and matching headband. I just loved how girly and elegant the whole ensemble was.

I’m not sure if its the inner seven year old in me but I am totally loving this new “Fluffy” trend that seems to be creeping in.  I admit it might be a bit out there and not for everyone but I’m seriously enjoying it. There’s something so fun about it and I think its just the perfect finishing touch to jazz up an outfit. And due to my extensive Instagram creeping (I genuinely have an Instagram problem) I can see I’m not the only one as more and more people are adding that extra bit of fluff! These fluffy bags from River Island are really hitting the spot, so much so I think I’ll have to invest in one, but which colour? Poor Rosie from Made In Chelsea couldn’t decide so she had to buy all four. Had to. Obvs.

Hey All!

I thought I would do a small post to show you what exactly my “style” entails. Its nothing extravagant! I don’t tend to follow all the trends. I just like to buy items that suits my shape and colouring. I think its really important to learn and buy what is best for you. There are certain trends and types of clothes that I will adore and admire on other people but they just might not be right on me and that’s okay. Not every trend will suit every person. So I think for me, finding what worked for me took awhile but I like to think I’ve finally got there! View Post

Welcome to “A Dash Of Lime”

My name is Edel Healy, I’m 21, from Galway,Ireland but currently living in Aberdeen, Scotland!


This is where I will be voicing my thoughts on all things fashion related. I hope to include style diaries, OOTD’s, wish lists, trend alerts and also some lifestyle related posts.

I’ve always had a love for fashion but in recent years that love has just gotten bigger and bigger. It was only recently a friend of mine suggested I should start a blog and after getting over the initial fear, I thought “well, why the hell not”. So, here I am.

I hope you enjoy what I have to say and will stay along for the ride.  All comments are welcome!
