Earlier this week, Today Show reporter Bláthnaid Treacy took a trip to the home of IFTA-nominated TV presenter and fashion-lover Lorraine Keane.
Known for her relatable yet chic style, we had high hopes for Lorraine's killer wardrobe and, oh my, she did not disappoint. Click on the video above to see it all.

As a woman who claims to plan every outfit from the shoe up, we had no doubt that Lorraine would have an impressive collection of killer heels. However, we could not have predicted the Carrie Bradshaw-worthy walk-in wardrobe of dreams.
"Shoes are my first love," smiles Lorraine. "When the girls come in here to play with their pals, I say they can try anything on except the red soles," she said, referring to a pair of drop-dead-gorgeous Christian Louboutins.
When asked to pick out the pieces of clothing that meant most to her, the TV presenter picked out a Fendi handbag gifted to her by her mother-in-law; two white vintage dresses; a Valentino red dress that she picked up for just €200 and a silk dress that she got for €30, donated by Roz Purcell.
How exactly does one find such designer steals? Well, for the past 10 years, Lorraine has worked with both Irish and international charities that have taken her all over the world including East Africa, where millions of people are facing extreme hunger.
After seeing the extreme poverty first hand, Lorraine was determined to raise both awareness and funds for those in need and approached Oxfam Ireland to see if they'd be interested in teaming up the fundraiser.
The idea was simple: encourage the celebs and fashionistas of Ireland to donate their high-quality clothes and accessories, and hold a massive sale to raise funds to fight the hunger crisis.
Happily, Lorraine's plea was answered tenfold by her friends and colleagues and, in the end, she raised an incredible €60,000 at last year's event.
Now, she and her generous (and very fashionable) friends are ready to do it all over again. Fashion Relief events are taking place in Galway and Dublin.
