Festival season is officially here- YASSSSS!
We've styled a lookbook with some of our favorite pieces. A mix of brand new SiopaEdit pieces and vintage, we hope you get some festival style inspo from it!
Two festivals coming up are Life Festival (May 26th-28th) and Forbidden Fruit (June 3rd-5th). Both are equally as funky and fun, and we had a ball at Forbidden Fruit last year ourselves! Which look is your favorite? What will you wear?

Picture this- you're rushing out the door for work when you realise you can't find your keys. You dig deep in to your large tote bag, full of bobby pins, tissues and god knows what else- but still can't find them. It's only then that you realise it's in your OTHER huge bag full of nonsense!
In Summer especially, there's nothing better than carrying a small bag with just the essentials- your phone, your keys, lipstick and a purse. Lucky for you, we've an abundance of mini bags in store and online right now. Here are our top five!
We absolutely love the vibrant red colour of this bag. Paired with nautical stripes and sandals, you could be on a yacht in Marbella or just strolling around St. Stephens Green- either one, looking just as glam!
Now THIS is what you call a micro bag. Big enough to hold your phone and credit card, this teeny tiny beauty is a night out essential. The long cross body strap and flower detail are what make this bag a necessity in our eyes!
Another pretty little red bag, we know- but who says you can't have more than one?! The Chloe 'drew' bag was a blogger hit a few years ago and it still hasn't gone out of style. We have one in store for €999 and it's in near immaculate condition.
This one takes us right back to the noughties with it's colourful print- you could see Paris Hilton wearing it down Sunset Boulevard! We still think it's the cutest party bag. It was part of a limited edition LV collection too, making it even more unique.
Last but not least, we have the ultimate Coachella-esque bag- a brown suede, fringe bag of dreams from Saint Laurent. This 'sac du jour nano' is at the top of our micro bag wish list for a few reasons- it's practical and has a crossbody strap for one, but mostly because it looks so darn cool!
Which micro bag is your favourite?
With Summer in full swing, hello to days eating Scrumdiddly's on the beach, BBQs in the garden and frolics in the park. We thought now was a good time for a refresher on the trends still standing this Spring/Summer, all part of our SiopaEdit collection.
Always a key trend for summer this versatile pattern is here to stay. Whether you chose a nautical themed Breton stripe, a twist on the classic blue and white, horizontal or vertical its a summer staple.
Ruffles were a key trend seen at fashion week, whether you prefer a dramatic frill or a simple fluted sleeve we have a variety of ruffles for you to choose from.
Denim is a style staple in everyone's wardrobe. To keep it fresh for Summer time, choose a dress or shirt. This Native Youth denim dress paired with this season's must have black fishnets is a look I'm dying to try. See more photos of this look here.
