Welcome......and Hello!

Hi there everyone....

So you may know me from my Facebook page- Saramiastyling, where I post recent photo shoots, editorials &  Advertorials which I style.
If not my name is Sara O'Connor, I am a Freelace fashion stylist, styling and working independently now for over a year and a 1/2! I have been busy working away in Ireland's fashion industry with some of Ireland's most creative, Photographers, Make-up Artists, Hair Stylists & some of the most beautiful models Ireland's agencies has to offer! I have experienced first hand how to precisely manage certain briefs and successfully achieve each & every one.
I have trained as an Image consultant, and have a Diploma in Costume design/Construction & make-up for theatre and film. I thrive off anything and everything fashion based!

Here on The Fashion Status I will be blogging/posting/updating & informing you all with the latest fashion allures!
Also, and more importantly the most vital piece of information you could possibly acquire is Body Analysis. The basis of this blog will be to Inform everyone out there of their body shape, and how they can enhance their appearance and confidence with the aid of visual diagrams and weekly fashion trends & style tips.

I really welcome your opinion, If there is anything you have always wanted to know,i.e. what shape glasses will suit your face? Or Can I wear an Empire Line dress? Or where could you get your hands on a certain something?
Well then leave me a comment or private email me on, I'll be glad to be at your service!

There will be more to come this week so feel free to come visit again soon!
