Wild Child Files: Q&A with Sinead Lally of Cotton Face Vintage
This weeks installment of our “Wild Child Files” questionnaire is from Vintage Seller and Galway girl, Sinead Lally. Sinead founded the now popular vintage online store Cotton Face Vintage in a few years ago, and has seen it go from strength to strength  ever since. More recently Sinead has undertaken the gigantic task of setting up Pandora’s Box, Galway ‘s first pop-up thrift and vintage market. Here she chats to us about her pet-peeves, her celebrity crush, and her secret to success!

LAST DREAM I HAD: My cat moo moo’s died, and I woke up crying.
MY GUILTY PLEASURE: taking photos of my cat, alot.
CANT STOP LISTENING TO: Stevie Nicks.
MY BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE: I dont believe in “mistakes” as such, as they always lead you to something better or different anyways, but some bad outfits i wore were in the 90,s for sure! Terrible time for fashion , white catsuit with green flower power all over it skin tight! High spice girl buffalow trainers and a bright orange fluffy jacket – oh dear.
CURRENTLY LUSTING AFTER: an Ipad for sure, next thing on my list and some other lenses for my new camera. If only Santa were real.
PET PEEVE: [bad] manners!
BIGGEST SPLURGE/SPEND: Besides Cotton Face Vintage , its my new canon 600d camera I purchased yesterday!
DREAM HOLIDAY/TRIP: This one is on the cards as we have booked an amazing holiday to Thailand in December for a few weeks traveling around. We have been there before in 2008 and got engaged on the beach and we just have to go back! Its preety special over there.
WHERE I’LL BE IN 5 YEARS TIME: Fingers crossed sitting in my own Vintage shop in the heart of Galway, and living in our dream house here in furbo.
HOW I WIND DOWN: On a friday after work I get into my warms, light some candles , put the phone on silent, get a nice takeaway or cook and just relax in the sitting room with the tv, laptop, boyfriend and Moo-Moo’s , knowing you have no work on the following morning is a nice feeling too.
MY MANTRA/SECRET TO SUCCESS: Be nice. Work hard. Also, not to take life too seriously.
IF I WAS AN ANIMAL I’D BE: A Long Haired cat for all the obvious reasons!
MY CELEBRITY CRUSH (DEAD OR ALIVE!) : Tom Hardy and Colin Farrel
MY CURRENT DREAM/GOAL: To push Cotton Face Vintage and Pandora’s Box to the limit and to be happy.
ADVICE TO MY 16 YEAR-OLD SELF: Don’t grow up, its a trap!
WHO/WHAT INSPIRES ME: People who put in the effort and give life a go. Watching other people do well. Good style.
