We here in STELLAR Towers love to talk…a lot. We talk about blokes, celebs, make-up, mates, and clothes, especially clothes. So to let you inside the minds and shopping bags of the peeps here in STELLAR, we’ll be hitting the blog to share some of our recent purchases we’re loving. We get excited when we get comments, and really want to know what you ladies are buying too, so please feel free to wax lyrical about your star buys too…

We’ve been hearing about Claire’s new amazo-scarf all week. She’s fallen head over heels in love with the Circle Scarf from American Apparel. For just 28 squid, you get a hella warm scarf, that can also be worn 14 other ways. Yup, 15 pieces for the price of one – we’re all over that. 

We can confirm, after much acrobatics, that all 15 are possible, and most, pretty wearable. The thick jersey fabric, makes it really versatile, and cosy, but they also do a sheer version for the warmer blooded girlies out there. We really love how it can be work as a kind of shawl, which comes in very handy this weather (particularly when the bloke you fancy decides to spend the night hanging out in the beer garden – grrrr.)

Claire bagged one in olive green, but we’re betting she’ll have them all by next payday. Oh and another thing, they’re uni-sex, so you can share it with the man in your life too. With all this going for it, no wonder Claire hearts it so. 




So what’s in your shopping bags this month? Have you bagged a bargain or had a splurge? We want to hear about it, so please do share…

The circus is coming to town…with ABSOLUT FRINGE aka the Dublin Fringe Festival, kicking off this weekend, we’ll be letting you in on our pick of the best events around town. 

One show, we’re just gaggers to see, is La Clique in the Spiegeltent. A variety show like nothing you’ve seen before, it blends cabaret, vaudeville, burlesque and circus. An spectacle in every way, this show is exotic, erotic, and hella sexy. If this doesn’t take your breath away, you’re a hard one to please.

A certainty to sell out, (well it did the last three years in a row) we suggest nab your tickets now – don’t say we didn’t warn you x 


La Clique

Eva Mendes

Eva Mendes came over all Gossip Girly on the red carpet for the 2009 Venice Film Festival when she wore a bejewelled black hairband…Thoughts?

It seems that hair-gear is a huuuge trend for autumn/winter – from Minnie Mouse ears at Moschino Cheap & Chic to bunny ears at Louis Vuitton and ornate hair bands at Dolce & Gabanna… For a more wearable way to rock this trend – go with Eva’s choice & nab yourself a bejewelled hairband…Check out this navy high-street beauty from Accessorize for €24!
