Quite recently, I wrote about my love of accessories and the ability they have to complete an outfit! So when I was contacted by a new Irish accessories business, I jumped at the chance to find out more. Glamourize.ie is a brand new online shop that specialises in quirky fashion accessories. Local Wexford woman and fashion lover, Mairead McCarthy launched Glamourize.ie earlier this year. Her online boutique features a great variety of affordable, trendy accessories that you won’t find on the high street. Catering for almost every age group, Glamourize.ie is a little treasure trove! Mairead very kindly sent me out some pieces from the new collection recently for you to check out below.
Such an easy way to dress up an otherwise plain outfit is with a detachable collar. These pearl collars come in both black and cream on Glamourize.ie and would be the ideal addition to a plain, block colour shirt or high neck dress. A little piece like this is inexpensive and would be a great travel companion, meaning you could possibly get two or three wears out of one top or dress. Adding a detachable collar changes your look in an instant. I was sent the black pearl collar, which retails for €15.99 here.
In my opinion, an obi belt is a wardrobe essential. Obi belts are used to shape your silhouette and can really accentuate your best bests. If you’re tall, you can wear a thicker style of belt; if you’re petite, a slimmer style will flatter your frame. Curvy, hourglass shapes will look amazing with an obi belt too as it draws the eye in to the smallest part of the body. Allow the belt to be the focal point of your outfit and choose minimal accessories to compliment the look. Glamourize.ie stock this style in a variety of colours and finishes; pu-leather, lace, silver, pink, black and white, the outfit inspiration is endless! I was kindly sent the black lace obi belt which will match up with a huge variety of outfits. It retails for €15.99 here.
My absolute fear in life is losing my luggage or someone else picking up my case by mistake! Where possible, I’ll keep my luggage with me but with the absolute amount of stuff I bring with me, that’s not always possible 🙈 😭 These cute luggage tags allow you to spot your case a mile away. Glamourize.ie currently stock two styles, blue and pink, and they retail for just €6.99.
Some of the most popular products on Glamourize.ie are these new nail varnish holders – such a handy addition to everyones nail polish drawer. I’m a divil for balancing my nail polish bottle between my fingers or on the edge of the laptop or radiator 😳🙈 which is Not. Good! The silicone holders slide on to your fingers, like a ring, and hold your nail polish bottle in place. This is honestly so handy and ensures that you won’t make a mess when painting your nails. They retail for €11.99 on Glamourize.ie and come in pink and purple.
You know yourself; all the girls are around for vino and chats, the night goes on, (the dancing begins 🙈) and you can’t remember which glass of pinot belongs to who? Well you’ll never have that issue again with these silicone charms for your wine glasses. They’re fun and colourful and you won’t mix up drinks again. Glamourize.ie carry them in packs of 6 charms for €8.99.
I love to support local, Irish businesses where possible so I’m delighted to share some of their most popular pieces on Holy Chic. Glamourize.ie carry a unique selection of jewellery – trendy tassel earrings and rose gold pendant necklaces. They even have the most essential accessories for festival season, like the luggage tags and shoe covers. Delivery within Ireland is free and there are often special offers on the website. It’s worth keeping an eye out for them and you can also purchase gift cards for someone special. Mairead is constantly sourcing the trendiest accessories that you won’t find on the high street and are also budget friendly. Definitely keep an eye on Glamourize.ie for new additions.
