Delectable Frends headphones will be awarded to those judged most Real Street Stylie by our esteemed panel of judges (so esteemed in fact that we haven’t asked them to judge yet…). We’ll have Taylor, Layla, Ella and Alli headphones up for grabs. Just post a seriously excellent photo on your own Facebook page, then tag Tower Dublin on the photo (make sure to make the photo public after you’ve uploaded it). You can also enter on Twitter by tweeting us your photo. We’re @TowerDublin . Make sure to include #TowerFrendsStreetStyle so we can find it! We’ll pick four winners at the end of May and make a crazy hullaballoo about it all!
