A girls' day in McElhinney's


The prestigious McElhinney’s department store of Ballybofey in Donegal had recently invited myself, my Mother and my sister down to wander around their occasion-wear to see all that they had to offer.

Agreeing without hesitation, we ventured down to McElhinney’s, and were greeted by the lovely manager, Sarah.  Sarah was so accommodating and made sure that we were receiving the best care and attention during our visit.

Sarah explained to us that McElhinney’s womenswear may be often perceived as being for the older woman, but that this was not the case, as we soon found out.

Upon exploring the most diverse range of labels, we did not only see that there were styles to suit the woman in her 50s (and above), 30s, 20s, but also to suit every eclectic taste.
What stood out to me the most was the fact that there were endless choices of styles, colours, lengths, and prices.

Mandy of the womenswear department was very kind to help us get insight to all that was of choice, including hats and accessories. Mandy didn’t tell us what to choose, she asked us what we usually preferred and from there she worked around us, adhering to our own individual styles and preferences. She also encouraged us to step outside our comfort zone.

After trying on the most luxurious dresses, we were then given afternoon tea.
After we had succumbed to the beautiful scones with jam and cream, alongside the most fresh tray-bakes, we fixed ourselves up to try on more clothes.

This time we looked at the casual range, and I literally couldn’t believe they had the GIGI for Tommy Hilfiger in-store. Whilst it’s not my usual style, I nonetheless enjoyed trying it on for size.

As you've seen, McElhinney's can make you the Mother of the Bride on one day, and every bit the modern, chic woman the next day.
I want to thank ALL the staff at McElhinney's, Sarah, Mandy and a special thanks to Carina. It was a great day for myself, my mum and sister and it really was not only about the clothes, but the entire experience also. It's no wonder McElhinney's has such an award-winning reputation.

Styling with Boudoir


Today in 'Boudoir Derry' I decided to take a few of the pieces and style them in a multitude of ways to suit any age, occasion and personality.
You will see that I show how one item, like the neon orange shirt, can be worn with many different colours and styles, thus proving how versatile these pieces, all available at 'Boudoir Derry' can be.

I hope you enjoy the outfits that I've styled and do know that there are many more pieces in the boutique!
