Efficient Ellie joined The Chic Team in July and has settled in perfectly to the happy home of the Chic&Seek boutique. We love her infectious laugh and positive demeanour!
What do you do?
I’m the new store manager at Chic & Seek
What are you most proud of?
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Truly unforgettable, a lot of things went wrong and I suffered badly with altitude sickness. Nothing has matched that experience of accomplishment and how it felt to stand there
What can’t you live without?
Belly laughing, tea, bad (really bad) reality TV & my A-Team made up of my extraordinary family & boyfriend.
What is your most memorable fashion purchase?
A pair of red leather Prada knee high boots I was about 15 at the time and just getting into heels and thought they were simply divine I never wanted to take them off and didn’t for a few years.
What is your favourite shop of all time?
Is that a trick question? Obviously the Chic & Seek boutique it had me at the barbie chandelier.
What is your biggest fashion mistake?
I’m strangely proud of most of them as everyone needs a sprinkle of fierceness in their approach to fashion. One that stands out from being a teenager was a von Dutch truckers cap, hoop earrings a black velour zip jumper with black cargo trousers tucked into pointed white knee high boots I looked like I was auditioning for a girl band. It was wrong on every level.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
Please don’t judge me but I want Beyoncé, no explanation needed really
What’s your Chic Beauty/fashion tip.
Beauty tip would be drinking enough water a simple one but can make a massive difference fashion tip. Please never ever ever ever save something for that “special occasion” wear what you love everyday. Life is short.
