Reinvent Everyday Pieces:
Hi I’m Annabel Tollman, I’m a celebrity stylist and I’m here to share with you today some style tips and fashion finds straight from the pages of eBay Fashion. Today we are going to be looking at pieces that you probably already have in your own closet – some great fitting blue jeans, a crisp white shirt, a little black dress, and looking at ways to reinvent them.
I think we all have a pair of blue jeans in our closet and probably more than one pair. So here we are, here’s Diane, she’s wearing a great pair of high waisted blue sailor jeans with this Vince tank and we’ve put it with this really sort of dressy, fancy chain belt. Belt looks great here but also you can wear it as a necklace, and it really adds a lot of sparkle and pizzazz.
I love taking something that’s casual and basic and really making it something special. So here we have Brandi, who’s wearing this classic white shirt, and what we’ve done is added these paste necklaces, just these junky pieces and just layered them all together and it really looks amazing. And also we’ve taken this antique belt buckle, sewn a piece of black fabric and cinched in the waist on it. So it takes jeans and a white shirt from something really simple and making it suitable for evening.
Another classic piece that you probably have at home is a little black dress, maybe it’s a dress that you wear to work but here is how you can make it suitable for an evening out. Brandie is wearing this black shift dress from Diane Von Furstenberg and what we’ve done is taken a piece of black grosgrain ribbon about three inches wide and just tied it in a bow around her waist and also just put on this crystal broach and we paired it with a sparkly clutch and a Manolo Blahnik pump. And I think you’ll all agree it’s something that doesn’t look remotely office-y.
