Alexandra Fullerton is one of British fashion’s oracles. Published author, freelance stylist and currently Fashion Director at Large at Glamour UK, Alex has an impressive CV that makes her more than qualified to give you advice on your next purchase.
Knowing this we asked Alex to take a look at the current edit available on our eBay shop and pick out her favourite pieces.
This is what she chose:
Bottega Veneta has a huge buzz around it, since new Creative Director Daniel Lee took the helm. He’s reinvented their signature woven leather, which has seen their pieces become modern icons. This slouchy Hobo style will house all your everyday essentials and the peppy green shade will uplift any Spring outfit.
A silk scarf is one of the most versatile items you can add to your wardrobe. Tie it around your neck, wear as a headband, thread through your belt loops, twist around the handles of a handbag… Or if you’re drawn to the pattern, frame it and hang it on your wall as a work of art!
Due to our idiosyncratic British weather, coats are as integral to your outfit as underwear. For 75% of the year your coat is likely to be the thing people notice when they meet you, so choose a style that speaks volumes about your personality. A Burberry trench with a colourful twist will be a forever buy that will last many seasons. (Edit: This coat has now sold, but keep an eye out, there are more to come).
Thanks you to Alexandra for picking out some beautiful pieces and proving that pre-loved can by high-end and high quality.
