Littlewoods Ireland Spring Summer 13 Collection

By Elaine Scully Styling

My sister is addicted to shopping with Littlewoods Ireland. I rarely - infact the word never might describe it more honestly - shop online, that is entirely due to the fact that I enjoy instore shopping too much (so much that I've made a career out of it!) That said I do have an online shopping addiction of sorts - virtual window shopping - plus as a stylist I love sharing my online finds with all the followers of my facebook page

In November I was delighted to be given the opportunity to attend Littlewoods Ireland's preview of their SS13 Collection. The event was held in The Little Museum of Dublin and hosted by stylist Cathy O'Connor and the Face of Littlewoods Caroline Morahan.

We were treated to bubbly, a salon style fashion show, a browse through a selection of their new season offerings and one of the most popular parts of the evening was artist Eva Byrne - I queued for 30 mins to get my portrait done (image below)





Black and White which I'm sure you've heard by now is a key trend for the season and a lasting palette that's easy mix - so good news for your wardrobe...........



After a long cold Winter would we be as eager to jump into the spring summer season if it didn't promise cheerful colour and the hopefulness of warm weather?


Of course it goes with out saying pastels were present and are always a must for the lighter brighter months............


the artists interpretation of me and my style for the evening............what I and everyone I spoke to loved about Eva Byrne was with a few flicks of her paintbrush we all got to be glamorous hollywood stars for one night. I'm going to really enjoy displaying my portrait in my office if I ever get around to hanging it up............



Littlewoods Ireland still have some amazing Winter Sale bargains and the weather at the moment promises lots of wear from them, however, they have most definitely moved into Spring/summer with lots of new season styles already available. Below are some looks to inspire your SS wardrobe and who knows maybe they'll inspire me to do some online shopping for a change :-)


with Valentines Day the next holiday to look forward to I couldn't resist these dresses





My most favourite hue is and always has been Purple and I adore this jumpsuit and this is the perfect piece to buy and wear now and throughout the summer. I would however remove the matching belt that comes with it and add my own belt in a different colour. Style tip: a large belt will make you appear slimmer.  



I promise girls these clogs will go with everything. If you are planning a holiday it's always wise to have a neutral shoe that will mix with any outfit, cutting down on the amount of shoes needed and saving on luggage weight


I think we all by now own a black blazer so this summer it's time to invest in a white style.....

Littlewoods really do have an amazing selection (for all ages and shapes) so why not pay them a visit even if it is just to do some window shopping.
