And the winner is...

Massive thanks to all of you who entered our competition this weekend, either by Facebook or Twitter, or by commenting on our previous post.  We've had a look through all the responses we've got, and chosen our lucky winner...

Congratulations, Joanna Ashton!

Joanna entered on Facebook and said the following:
I love the flutter and fancies satchel. It is so girly and pretty yet really practical for work. I think it's really original and I look at it and wish it was mine every time i go into your shop! Am going for interviews at the moment (so am currently broke) and would love a good bag for interviews and work that reflects my personality :D I would also wear it at the weekend if I had it because it's perfect for everything :D
And here's Joanna's prize!

Joanna: to claim your wonderful Flutters and Fancies satchel, please email your address to and we'll get it posted out to you.

Thanks again to everyone who entered - you all said such lovely things it was really hard to choose.  Don't worry if you didn't win this time as we'll definitely be running more competitions in future.  Keep your eyes peeled!

Until next time,

Competition time!

Roll up, roll up for the chance to win pretty goodies!  Normally we hold competitions like this solely on Twitter, but we figure that's quite mean to all those poor Facebook-only people out there.  Also, the competition this time is going to be on for MUCH LONGER - a whole weekend as opposed to a measly two hours!  I know, we're spoiling you.  Perhaps it's because we feel so terrible about being a bit quiet really on the old bloggery front.  We don't want you thinking Aspire doesn't love you anymore; absence makes the heart grow fonder, and we're maxing out our fondness levels for you right now.

The prize this weekend is a lovely one indeed.  Obviously everyone has different tastes, so instead of picking just one thing, we want you to tell us what your favourite Aspire Style product is and why, and it could become yours!  Just enter your answer in the comments below, and you can earn two extra entries by posting on our Facebook fan page here or tweeting your answer (make sure you include @aspirestyle).

Ts and Cs: You can only enter once through each medium (the comments section, Facebook and Twitter) - don't be spammy!  It's not big and it's not clever.  Points for originality.  The competition will close at lunchtime on Monday the 26th of July and the winner will be informed on that afternoon.

Good luck!

Aspire Style - fame at last!

You poor, neglected things.  I know, I know, it's been a while, but for good reason!  We've been very busy here at Aspire Style HQ over the past few weeks.  Firstly there was our amazing three flash sales which took place over the first weekend of the month which proved to be such a success we will definitely be holding them again soon!  If you missed out, make sure you're kept in the know next time by signing up for our mailing list.  We don't spam, I promise, and it means you'll be informed about our news and promotions before anyone else.

Secondly, we've also had products featured in Grazia two weeks in a row, which has kept us pretty snowed under.  The first product to grace the pages of one of our favourite magazines was the Ruby Belle Madagascar bustier dress (£39), still available in sizes 8, 12 and 14 (limited stock):

The following week, not only did Grazia feature our Fever Cezanne side lace dress (£69), it also showcased it on the cover (top right hand corner)!

As this item was already an Aspire bestseller, you can imagine how many orders we had after all the nation's most stylish ladies clapped eyes on it.  Unfortunately they got our website address slightly wrong, but the determination of our lovely new customers won through.

We've only got very limited sizes left but are still having the odd one or two returned, so if you weren't able to get the size you want, either keep an eye on the website or email us with what size you want and we'll let you know if we get one in.  Alternatively, we now stock the Cezanne print in a beautiful cocktail dress (£65):

And if it's the flattering side lace shape you're after, we have this in a lovely blue butterfly print:

A massive HELLO to all our new customers (and a reassuring 'we haven't forgotten about you' hug to all our lovely loyal ones) - we look forward to seeing more of you!

Until next time,
