SVP Jewellery and Sinead Crowe, the fashion blogger behind the site Love. Style. Mindfulness have been working together on our life-changing SVP Jewellery Change is Beautiful campaign.
#ChangeisBeautiful is the SVP Jewellery approach to gift-giving. As we’re making positive change in the supply chain, we’re showcasing our gorgeous blue chalcedony Bonbon ring with its turquoise stone known to instil feelings of generosity and goodwill.
We ask people to take a picture of themselves wearing it and tag #changeisbeautiful on their Instagram post. Then, because we like to mix it up a bit, you then pass it on to someone new do the same. It’s a random act of kindness to cheer up a friend, an unexpected gift.
Sinead is an ex-fashion buyer and now, one super stylist. Her blog is chock full of beautifully curated looks and style tips. We fell in love with her stunning Instagram account that’s growing a firm fashionable army of followers.
If you want an insiders peek into the person behind the blog, this is for you. Happy reading.
How did you first get into fashion?
It’s something I’ve always been interested in and studied throughout education. It wasn’t really until I was in my last year at university when my sister got me a job working with her as a stylist that I ever really saw it as a career choice.
You work as a stylist, what does your typical day look like?
When I’m working at a studio it’s an early start, the first hour is spent drinking tea, looking through the stock we have for the day and building outfits. The rest of the day is sold shooting with an hour’s break! It’s a pretty long day working in ecommerce and not quite as glamorous as people may think! I’d say my favourite thing about styling is the people you get to work with, every day is different and I love constantly meeting new people.
Who would be your dream person to style?
It’s hard to say! When I think of people in regards to style I think of people who’s style I admire rather than the people I think dress badly! I would love to help style someone for a red carpet event, I think that would be so much fun!
What pieces are on your radar for AW16?
I’m a big lover of neutrals and basics so I generally have my core wardrobe staples and pick items for the cut and texture rather than following the trends. I usually pick a handful of pieces to wear with my staples.- I’m always a huge fan of chunky knits in every shape size and colour so I’m sure come winter that’s what I’ll be living in!
Do you have a favourite piece of clothing you own?
Don’t make me pick one!
Probably a t shirt from H&M, it’s a linen mix t shirt from the mens section and I love the shape, it looks great with anything and is definitely the most worn item I own. You can’t put a price on a good white t-shirt.
How do you like to accessorise?
I always think that shoes are the most important part of the outfit, they can make or break an outfit. A good pair of boots with ripped jeans and a t shirt is my favourite look. I usually accessorise with a statement necklace and some delicate rings. I rarely wear earrings, not because I don’t like them, I just never even think about it!
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My sister, shes built her own business up from the ground and has been my inspiration for starting a blog. She’s proven to me that anything is possible and just because others are doing it and being successful it doesn’t mean to say you can’t too.
How do you keep fit?
I don’t honestly know, I once started going to yoga but gradually phased it out after a couple of months! I’ve started eating a lot healthier since I realised I was wheat intolerant, but believe me this is not through choice, me and cake are best friends!
What’s your favourite food?
Cake. And curry. If I had to pick one meal to eat for the rest of my life it would be curry. Cake is my weakness, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth and cake is my soft spot.
We know you have a cockapoo – we are dog mad here at SVP HQ, please send us a shot of the two of you 🙂
Thanks for being our dream blogger.
