The Humming Bird takes flight to Boston

By Elaine Scully Styling

This weekend sees an exciting milestone for Irish designer Jennifer Rothwell. For the first time Irish fashion designs will be showcased at the Emerging Trends Boston Fashion Week 2012. Jennifer was extremely excited to receive her invitation to Boston. Americans have a strong connection and love of Ireland and Jennifer believes this will be a great platform to promote Irish fashion design internationally.

At Boston Fashion Week Jennifer will launch her new SS13 Humming Bird Silk Digital Print Line. The Humming Bird Digital Print was designed and developed under Jennifer’s direction in Dublin, Ireland and is exclusive to Jennifer Rothwell. Bold and adventurous whilst being vibrant and colourful the humming bird print displays dozens of birds flying in several directions in the bright cobalt blue sky. The main colours in the fabrication are cobalt blue, bright Windsorred orange and teal green. The bird itself consists of a beautiful array of colours, dark and pale teal colours are in the main body of the bird, the wingsare turquoise and royal blue while the tips of the wings are a vibrant bright Windsorred orange.

The stunning colour and print combinations are receiving a fantastic response here in Ireland. I believe the flattering fit of each piece is key to Jennifer's popularity amongst Irish women. I wish her the best of luck with her Boston showcase on Saturday 29th September.

Unruly Eyebrows - Quick Tip!!

by Anne Hutton Makeup & Beauty, Carlow.

I've been quiet here apologies, but rest assured I have some great posts coming up soon on shoots I've done.

But for now...
Here's a really quick and easy tip on how to tame those unruly eyebrows. No more annoying "sticky out" hairs!!
This is a little technique I have share with some clients, and one lady recently said to me that it's a godsend for her! So why not let you all know...

First Step: Tweeze away any untidy hairs, below the brow only. (or have your brows professionally shaped - only €8 with me!!)
Second Step: If there are any really long hairs sticking out, trim them (carefully!!)
Third Step: Fill in any gaps with a pencil or powder.

A well groomed eyebrow makes a big difference!

Fourth Step: the easy peasy secret tip I will now share with you ladies..... spray a little hairspray onto your brow-brush or a clean mascara wand (just clean an old one), and brush through your brows. They will stay in place and look nicely groomed. Alternatively you can invest in an eyebrow sculpting gel (such as Benefit Speedbrow) for a quick fix. This is handy as you can bring it in the handbag.

That's all for now.
Enjoy your new, tidier eyebrows!

Wine Tasting

By Elaine Scully Styling

I was waiting for a prescription in the chemist earlier this week so popped into Vila in Fairgreen Shopping Centre to waste some time. There I came across my BUY OF THE WEEK - Belissa Dress €44.95 available in sizes XS to XL. 

Front of Dress

Back of Dress

Dresses are the smart option when shopping on a tight budget....your outfit is complete with just the addition of some key accessories. Love the lace detail on this dress from Vila and especially the colour - ‘Wine Tasting’ :-) Plus this dress possesses the characteristics of the popular pencil style dress, but girls, the full skirt means not having to worry about restrictive underwear!!

It's a very flattering shape for most figures so don't flick past it on the rails until you've tried it on.....never judge clothes by their hanger appeal. Get to know the details in clothes that flatter your shape - wide straps, high necklines, empire lines, full skirts, statement shoulders etc... Forget about what looks good on your friends or on the models in mags, become aware of what looks good on you - discover your style. You can do this in the comfort of your own home by playing dress up and paying attention to what it is about your favourite clothes that makes you love them.
Happy weekend and Happy Shopping!!

Got me some Boots for the Winter.......

By Elaine Scully Styling

A rare outfit post :0

On Friday I got a pair of FitFlop Crush Boots in Chocolate (yum) and had an unusual urge to share what I plan to wear them with. This time I remembered to dust my mirror before my mini shoot ;)

My ensemble consists of;
Dark wash high waist skinnies from Vila (€34.95)
Print peplum top from A|wear (€35)
Embellished bib neckpiece - handmade by me (€14.99) to view more of my accessories click here -
AND the newest addition to my wardrobe......oh-so-comfy FitFlop Crush boots in Chocolate €149.99
Love the wedge sole on my new winter boots and the chocolate colour is scrumptious. Only those who own a pair of FitFlops can completely understand how comfy they are. This particular style, the 'Crush Boot', is also available in Black, Bungee Cord (grey), and Brown Sugar (a camel colour). So Mr Winter I'm all set - well my feet are - you'll have to do your worst to get my cocooned toes a shivering.
Time for a couple of outfit close ups

Shape Shopping Star Buy

By Elaine Scully Styling
This 40's Peplum Dress from A|wear's Modern Heritage Collection cleverly caresses curvaceous figures and the power of the peplum will disguise any tummy bulges. Similar to us ladies this dress multitasks, not only does it flatter curves, it can also create shape for straight figure ladies........not just a pretty dress, it's clever too ;) Now if only I could get my hair to look that good!

Shown above the dress also comes in Navy and both colours are in stores now for €55 each or buy on line here:
