‘Tis now the season to log on!

If the thought of facing the mass hysteria of the sales fills you with dread, why not indulge in some online shopping? Turn on the laptop, jazz up the kettle and snuggle up to some sartorial succour.

No screaming children, no sweaty changing rooms, no queues for the cash register; just the lastest in up-to-the-minute cutting edge fashion. After all, sales are soooo last season, writes Solo Style editor and fashion writer (www.iblogfashion.blogspot.com) Annmarie O’Connor.

Thank you ever so kindly, writes Solo Style editor and fashion writer (www.iblogfashion.blogspot.com) Annmarie O’Connor.

Festival fun

It wouldn’t be summer without someone holding a party in a field. But before you start stocking up on loo roll, be sure to take stock of your style. After all, this is where the cool kids hang, says Solo Style editor and fashion writer (www.iblogfashion.blogspot.com) Annmarie O’Connor.

Smarty pants

School may be out but preppy is always in, so this summer get your mod on with collegiate layers parlayed with a hint of edge, says Solo Style editor and fashion writer (www.iblogfashion.blogspot.com) Annmarie O’Connor.
