My online store 'Lipstick Gossip'.

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved pearls, glitter and clothes. I remember aged 4 me and my sister wanted to be shop keepers and we sold some jewellery of my Mam's to passers by on the street. She was not impressed at the time.. but now about 20 years later she sees the funny side. I was reminiscing about that story this weekend as I set up an online shop - something I have been deliberating about for months. You see I have turned my attic into a closet as I have accumulated so much bits and bobs from styling photoshoots. It all starts with a hat here and a top there and then you feel like a stage 5 hoarder. I was originally on the fence about setting up the online shop as I wanted it to be solely a little hub where I sold on handpicked pieces that reflected my own personal style and taste. But I have taken the leap at long last.

One of the best parts of being a fashion stylist is being a creative director of a shoot & working with talented photographers, hair stylists and Make up artists. It is great fun styling models and meeting new people. But what I also love is getting to see and use such beautiful clothes, handbags and accessories. It is like playing dress up. Sometimes I get my hands on rare items before they are widely available. My magpie tendencies go into overdrive. Of course with fashion styling there is a lot of travelling. I essentially live out of a suitcase (and I am incapable of travelling light) but I think that is why when work of mine lands in the press I am genuinely excited about picking up a copy. It means a great deal to me. Even though it can be a bit lonely it makes it all worthwhile. So, this is why I am delighted to be able to start selling some of these glitzy items to all you lovely ladies. I will have some menswear and mens accessories up from next week onwards.

 My ‘Lipstick Gossip’ shop currently has a few items for sale. There is green faux fur, jewellery, sequins, leopard print and more. You can check it out below.

  2. This is truly an effective way of putting your products out there in the vast online marketplace. Just keeping it simple and accessible from the title on is a good approach. It's this curt kind of ingenuity that really pushes products and brands into success.
