Reinvent Everyday Fashion Pieces

This fashion shopping blog post was written by Annabel Tollman for an eBay shopping video series.
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.
For more go to, until next time, happy shopping!

The date is set. The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.  In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business.  The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.   In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer.  By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout. The plan is se

Too Many Fashion Blogs

Is it possible that the world currently has too many fashion blogs? Obviously I understand that fashion is the most interesting subject matter in the universe, but why does everyone wish to blog about it. Although I have not yet completed an official count, I estimate approximately six zillion may be in existence. Here are a few reasons that may possibly contribute to the over population of style relevant blogs: Fashion blogs can make bloggers money (advertising, affiliate programs, etc). Fashion blogging is a creative process. Fashionistas are creative people; it makes sense that they enjoy writing. Fashion bloggers are tired of reading opinions from other people and wish to express their own opinion. Although it is embarrassing to admit, I contribute to several but do NOT derive much of an income for my efforts (yes, this is maybe because I do not write well…). Therefore, I do not think financial gain is the primary reason that the world has to

Fashion Goes in Cycles

They say that fashion goes in cycles.  What is in fashion this year will be out of fashion next year. However, clothing that may have been in style ten years ago, can potentially be next season smashing trend.  Due to the the cyclical nature of the apparel industry it is important for designers as well as consumers to monitor past styles as well as currently trending designs.  One way to do this would be to occasionally view old fashion articles in magazines, newspapers, websites, and obviously on blogs such as this one.
