‘My Fashion Fix’ is a new series where TraleeToday.ie’s Lisa O’Mahony asks people in Tralee about their style faves.
This week she met Isabel Doody, a 22 year-old make-up artist, who loves all things patterned. Originally from Castleisland, Isabel filled us in on what fashion is for her….
“My shirt is from Topshop in Tralee. I love Toyshop. They always have really nice, really different patterns, and decent enough value for the quality. The jeans are from Pull & Bear. My jacket is from River Island and the bag is from Penneys.”
Beginning of her fashion love affair…
“It really got going for me when I started working in Shindig because I was working with clothes all the time, so I got really interested then. And I got to see all the new stock coming in!”
Personal Fashion Philosophy
“I kinda’ just work around my make up. So I usually go with a patterned shirt and plain pants, or vice versa. I would never do too much with either one cause I wear heavy make up, with dyed hair, so I try to keep it a bit muted. I can’t wear dungarees. Just no! Or wide-legged pants, you know those kind of flowy disco pants? I just can’t wear them. I like to keep it neat.”
“I look on instagram a lot. Certain Instagrammers and YouTubers like Helen Anderson, and Alexa Chung in terms of celebrities.”
Worst Fashion Fail
“I was out and I was wearing a pencil skirt, and it was tucked up after the bathroom. I hadn’t it pulled down properly. So, yeah, that would definitely be a fashion disaster!!”
