Coachella looks to steal…..


, , , , , , , , ,

It’s been and gone but the Coachella Festival this year has given us just the kick we need to get cracking on our Summer wardrobe. So many looks to choose from, some wacky and some more demure. The two we have chosen are super wearable and most importantly can be adapted to the Irish weather! Just swap those cut-offs for jeans… simples!

Get the Look – Kendall


, , , , , , , ,

No doubt about it, Kendall Jenner is the new fashion darling with a wardrobe to die for. Her leather jacket collection is seriously impressive too. Selected Femme have nailed their newest addition and we are in love! The fit is perfection and the leather is super soft! Want to get the Kendall look? Take a peek below!









Basics? We’ve got you covered!


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Every killer outfit starts with a good foundation: we’re talking basics! Plain t-shirts, sleeveless tops, and camisoles allow you to keep things simple with denim or layer up with a jacket, heels, and jewelry. We love the newest additions to our basics collection, including pieces perfect for summer and even transitioning into the colder months (but we won’t think about that right now…). Basics are classic on their own, great for coverage under sheer fabrics and backless tops, or with gorgeous knits and jumpers. 

Meet our newest basics from Modstrom: the high neck sleeveless top (available in black), ‘Tulla’ tank top (in grey, navy, and black), high neck T-shirt (in black, navy, and wine), and the off shoulder T-shirt (in navy and Burgundy). The T-shirts and sleeveless top have a small, ribbed texture while the tank is soft and smooth. Looking for some simple and long-lasting basics? We’ve got you covered.

Our favorite celebs can’t get enough of a solid basic top, either! Everyone from Kendall Jenner to the eternally classy Grace Kelly have donned the basic on its own or with some extra added flare. Layer a high neck sleeveless top under denim dungarees like Poppy Delevigne for a playful look or show off your curves like Selena Gomez in a simple tank and boot cut jeans. Or go daring like Kendall with a delicate bralette over a plain white T for a fab day-to-night look.

Spring Summer 2016 Trend Report


, , , , , , , , , ,

Ok, I know, it’s the middle of Winter and Spring seems so far away, so is it too early to start thinking about next season??? Well I for one think it’s the perfect time to start planning ahead. We are in full swing sale mode at the moment which means stock is moving out very fast making way for yes, you have guessed it……Spring/Summer 2016, hurray!!! We are expecting SS16 deliveries in the next couple of weeks, how exciting! The first drop will be from iconic brand ‘Selected Femme’ which we are thrilled to be stocking. Cool classic styles with a really affordable price-tag, this ticks all the boxes and there will be drops every month! One style in particular that stands out is a beautiful navy silk full length dress with spaghetti straps. So simple, so chic and so bang on trend for SS16.

We select styles based on what will be in fashion for that season. We follow the trends and buy what we think will sell to you…..our lovely customers! The catwalk shows have a huge influence on our buying decisions. London, Paris, Milan, New York and Copenhagen are followed religiously every season which helps us forecast what trends will translate from the catwalk to our shop floor. So here are just a few of the key trends we will be following this SS16. It’s going to be a good one!

SS16 RUFFLES Christian Dior

Christian Dior ss16 – Lots of sheer delicate pieces coming in, love this dreamy fresh look…


Jason Wu SS16 – Ruffles are going to be huge! So feminine, this is one of our favourite trends.

Faux fur is a massive trend this season. This two tone collar is perfect for that quirky girl who likes to mix things up with clashing prints and fabrics. This can be worn over a coat, blazer or leather jacket and would also be ideal as a stocking filler!

Now what about the ultimate gift for the ‘cool girl’. She who is effortlessly chic and has a weakness for all things lux. We think that the Olivia Burton Black Face Watch could be the one for her.
