Elle’s Bells! That’s a good idea.

Dear Readers,

I tell you what, I was up and at ’em early this morning! Good grief. But for good reason, I had to be in Urban Outfitters, Temple Bar first thing to meet some lovely ladies from Elle Magazine. Including, their awesome Accessories Editor, Donna Wallace. They were here all day to check out Dublin’s styling talent.

The mag is running an intern competition with a wicked twist. They are asking anyone who works in clothing retail to enter by uploading a photograph of a look they’ve styled. Be it on themselves or someone else. (Kind of like a personal style photo would be). Then fill out a cool little questionnaire afterwards. It just asks who your style icons are, your favourite Brit designer and your own personal style etc.You don’t have to be a VM or personal shopper you just have to work in fashion retail.

To get as many entrants as possible from Dublin stores, Elle ran mini competitions in H&M and Urban Outfitters today. All the shop girls / boys there, got into teams were asked to style 1 of 5 mannequins. The winners were then chosen by the Elle ladies. I have to say, I adored the UO winner, it stood out a mile. Man, why don’t turbans suit me! Actually the H&M one had a turban too come to think of it! Nuff said people, Elle’s accessories ed is loving the turban. Word.

Urban Outfitters winners, pictured top; Anne Loewenguth, Katie Smyth and Ella Reilly.

All 5 Urban Outfitters styled mannequins and Donna Wallace.

Xx

    i love h&m but the selection in ireland stores is so limited that they’re at a disadvantage compared to UO or RI. i do love the neutral UO mannequin, what a fantastic pairing of colours, and i covet those pants!
