So we've mastered the consignment, nailed the closet clearouts and in the past couple of weeks started our own collection. What next you may ask?! Well we've been throwing around ideas. Some of these ideas are better than others. Ella wants to open a Bubble Tea cafe (but Bubblicity have that covered), Id love to have our own Podcast (I think I'd make a great Ira Glass), Orlagh wants to start a Siopalla pet sanctuary (so she can bring her guinea pig Mary to work) and Anna wants a Siopaella reality TV show (we'd be axed after one episode).
We mulled over these ideas and came to the conclusion that our next big venture should be to start our own girlband!!! So, allow us to present Dublin's hottest new girlband, The Siopaettes feat. our newest collection of Enter bags.[gallery columns="1" link="file" size="full" ids="50393,50392"] [gallery size="full" link="file" ids="50396,50397,50435"]

Here at Siopaella we like a challenge. From the cinnamon challenge to the ice bucket we've done and nailed them all. Now doing these types of challenges aren't something we'd really share on the blog? Ohhh here's us swallowing a tablespoon of cinnamon while holding a Chanel bag!? Doesn't really have the same appeal as say our new challenge...Queue the oooohs and aaaaahs. This new challenge we're talking about? The Siopaella Siopaedit.
We hinted about it last week with our Elka rainjacket blog that you can read here and shown a few of our favourite pieces on TV3's Xpose. We love playing dress up in them as they are so wearable and look good both as individual pieces or styled together.[gallery link="file" size="full" ids="48798,48800,48807"]
We (I say we, I mean Steve) jigged around and gave Crow Street a bit of a face lift this weekend. We wanted to give you something new, something exciting and most importantly? Something affordable! And so begins...the Siopaella Siopaedit. All items are available in our newly refurbished yet still as gorgeous as ever Crow Street store. Prices begin at €18 and go up to €99 for the Siopaedit pieces. We've styed them with iconic Louis Vuitton, the most perfect Alexander Wang bacpack and a classic Tod's handbag.[gallery link="file" size="full" ids="48818,48810,48814"]

For the first time since I bought my trusted Hunter wellies I am wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin' for rain (you sang that too didn't you)! Why you may ask? Oh, well only because we went and got ourselves the cutest new rainjackets since the bumblebee and ladybird ones we all had in Junior Infants! Let me introduce, Elka rainjackets![gallery link="file" columns="1" size="large" ids="48274"]
If you're up to date with all our social media channels especially Instagram and Snapchat, you would have seen a lot of talk about our new venture. If you're not up to date, stop what you're doing and go follow us for a first look at what we do, what we think and what we look and sound like (I warn you though it's not always pretty even with all the Snapchat filters)! This new venture is something we've been thinking about for a while and we thought feck it, 2016 is our year, let's get it done! So, we have begun curating our own Siopaella collection. The collection features brands we worship at prices we love and in a Siopaella first...we have MORE THAN ONE SIZE![gallery link="file" columns="1" size="large" ids="48288"]
Elka is one of the brands we are stocking. They specialise in rainwear and hey, we live in Ireland and it rains...sooooo it really was a no brainer. The best part? The colours and quality of the jackets! I have yet to choose a favourite colour. I flit between the olive to the yellow to the red but then the black will go with everything!? They're a really great fit and a really good price point as these are no ordianiry, mac in a sac rainjackets. What we loved about them was how fashionable they are yet still an instant classic. That kind of style is a Siopaella favourite as we're all about smart buying and these Elka rainjackets are for life![gallery link="file" columns="1" size="full" ids="48290"]
With the Electric Picnic and Longitude line up announced we're already starting our summer festival wardrobe and I'll tell you this much! These Elka rainjackets are no.1 on my list...now to just choose a colour.
