Great news for Sligo’s fashion scene: Anna Fashion and Lifestyle Boutique is now open at 6 Market Street!
I popped along Friday morning to have a look and see what she had to offer. Many of you saw my snaps of the beautiful rustic interiors (by NOC Carpentry) and what garments caught my eye (Snapchat: @moda_fix), which were well received.
I wasn’t disappointed. I knew from the shopfront that it will appeal to women of various ages, which is a great thing. The style is sophisticated with lots of classics & neutral tones. I really think that owner and buyer Anna Higgins got it right in terms of taste & what women want: comfortable, wearable, versatile basics.
I did a massive closet clear-out this month and have decided to pair everything back to colours and styles that I wear most often. Without sounding boring, I want to stick to basics and neutrals and garments that are versatile enough that I can re-wear over and over. The past few weeks that I’ve been off work all I’ve been wearing are casuals and basics… they’re my favourite. I’ve been wearing white jeans and denim shirts to death, but simply mix up the look with different T-shirts, long-sleeved tops, hats, scarves and accessories.
Anna will be a great option now for picking up good quality, durable basics.
Having said that, as soon as I got browsing it was the printed pineapple playsuit that caught my eye… not the most practical! I break all my own rules….
Anyway… it’s loose-fitting and will be ideal for summer holidays and gorgeous belted.
Price points are varied: some pieces very affordable, but others quite pricey. I think the prices are justifiable, however, as like I mentioned these pieces are durable, wearable and quality garments. There are lots of oversized, loose-fitting garments, which appeal to me for everyday comfort.
Labels stocked include: Postcard, Native Youth and Toupy Paris.
The handbags, clutches and wallets are Matt & Nat (material and nature), which are eco-friendly: made from recycled materials.
It’s great to have a new addition to a lovely part of Sligo town… and to see more women in business!
Wishing Anna the very best of luck.
