Style Blogger of the week: Louise O’Reilly at Style Me Curvy


Style Me Curvy is the essential blog for the many fashion lovers out there.

Not only has it been voted as “Best International Fashion Blog” by Cosmopolitan magazine UK, but it was also announced as this year’s "Most 'Aussome' Fashion Blog" by Aussie Haircare Australia.

The creator behind this chic blog is Louise O’Reilly. Louise works mainly as an international plus size model, and from her experience in the fashion industry she came up with the idea of Style Me Curvy. She said she wanted to create a space to promote “fashion, beauty and style for every kind of curve and body type”, which we here at SHEmazing! HQ just love.

SHEmazing! caught up with Louise, who let us in on her own fashion must-haves:

What item do you think every girl should have in her closet?
A great quality t-shirt bra for support and great shape to an outfit, a leather jacket as it goes with a multitude of items and of course the reliable little black dress 

What's the most expensive item of clothing you've bought? 
I try to invest in key pieces that I know I will get good mileage out of so usually that applies to handbags, shoes or a good coat. My most expensive piece was a Julian Mc Donald coat that was about €450 and lasted years! 

What's your best bargain?
A Zara handbag that was €90 which I found in the St. Stephens Day sales for €7 in immaculate condition!!:)  

What would you say is your favourite accessory?
It's a tie between a Murano Glass and amber necklace (sentimental value) or my open toe biker boots that work so well with most of the items in my wardrobe.

If you could only shop in one store for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Wow that's a VERY tough question. It would probably be Arnotts or River Island. I seem to an obsession with both stores this past year judging by my wardrobe.
