As most savvy online shoppers will know, the world is your shopping oyster where eBay is concerned. As Alex James, former Blur member aptly put it, “The sense of possibility is giddying” and right he is. With 2,888 bags sold every day and one car sold every minute, no wonder eBay is a one stop shopping destination built to suit all tastes and budgets. With this in mind, eBay have taken the next step in making shopping on their site even more fabulous by introducing their new “eBay Collections” feature. This enables everyone and anyone to bring their passions to life by displaying items they’ve discovered and have fallen in love with on eBay in groups or themes.
At the launch this morning we were lucky enough to have the likes of Reggie Yates (previous owner of 1,000 pairs of trainers!), Kelly Hoppen (queen of all things interior design), Dannii Minogue (looking stunning in Hervé Leger), Alex James (wellies obsessed) and Susie Lau (in love with all things colourful and wacky patterns) take us through the collections they themselves have created.
Hosted by the lovely Sasha Wilkins of Liberty London Girl – a self confessed eBay lover who in fact blogs everyday from a desk she bought on eBay – we got to discover the inspiration behind their collections, all of which were completely unique to their own interests and passions. From glitter, to wet wipes (100 points to whoever can guess who features this in their collection!), to kettle bells, to back to the future trainers, these collections really have it all!
Dressipi were lucky enough to be asked to join these celebrities as well as over 200 bloggers to curate our very own eBay Collections. Our stylists looked at a variety of fashion must-haves, from wardrobe heroes to on-trend lust-haves so you can shop those perfect pieces for any social occasion. Why not check them out and get inspired! http://www.ebay.co.uk/cln/dressipi
When it comes to Paris Fashion Week, quite frankly the big designers and brands are self-contained shows, trends and seasons all on their own. It’s all or nothing. Autumn/Winter 2014 has been a strong, opulent, exciting season and the end of Paris sent it off with a sparkling bang – quite literally when it came to the new must-have silver glitter boots and flats of the season from Hedi Slimane’s overall lust-have Saint Laurent collection. Nicolas Ghesquière’s first show for Louis Vuitton got the fashion world all in a flutter with its sharp, fresh 60′s style. It’s utterly impossible not to pass out at the exquisite craftsmanship at Valentino and Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gave us a fantastical collection of indulgent masterpieces. So, you see, when it comes to Paris Fashion week it’s all or nothing. This season it was “all’. Natalie x

Popping out for the milk anyone? Karl Lagerfeld made sure that it will be nothing but a high fashion moment when he turned his catwalk into a Coco Chanel supermarket in Paris this morning. You just need to see the flurry of pictures on instagram and twitter for up close and personal pics of Coco Choco, Chanel doormats, Jambon Cambon …and of course all of those clothes! C’est magnifique! Natalie x
QUESTION: I need a bit of help with what to wear to a wedding with this Jigsaw dress and these Mary Portas for Clarks shoes which I bought. The wedding is in a barn but from the website, it looks like a pretty plush barn, so I think normal wedding wear will be fine. I did wonder about wearing a sparkly clip or something in my hair. I might run to a new bag and what should I wear in the way of a coat or jacket? I’m sure there is something you could do with the outfit to make it look a bit more modern?
ANSWER: You’ve chosen a gorgeous dress in one of the textures of the season. Here are a few items as requested that we hope you’ll love:
1. H&M, Coat £34.99:- This coat comes in a versatile blush shade, that works perfectly with the burgundy dress. It’s the ideal occasion coat with gorgeous shoulder detailing and a not too fussy finish that’s perfect with the lace.
2. Little Mistress, Clutch £25:- Metallics are all over the catwalk so snap up this gold box clutch to go with your outfit. The jewel clasp turns up the glam factor, and the boxy shape will keep your outfit modern:
3. Asos, Earrings £8.00:- I’m loving these Art Deco jewel earrings, they complement your clutch and are the only piece of jewellery you need to go with your dress:
4. The Collection, Clips £12:- These structural hair clips are a sleek modern alternative to a fascinator and will look great with your short hair. SarahA x
