What do you like about buying on Vestiaire Collective?
I like that I can find pieces from my favourite brands at more affordable prices, and I like how Vestiaire quality checks each piece they sell. I think it’s really important that the quality of items is at the right level for buyers in the community.
What is your favourite statement piece and why?
Definitely my Celine trio bag - it was one of my first designer bags I purchased and it's such a handy piece to have. It's been with me now for almost 5 years and I don’t think I’ll ever let it go!
What are your tips to finding and styling a versatile statement piece?
For me it’s all about finding a timeless piece that I can see myself wearing from casual weekends to on-the-go weekdays. I picked up this Bottega Veneta bag from Vestiaire and it’s really versatile - I can style it with a maxi dress, or a pair of jeans!
What’s your top tip for a budget-friendly statement piece?
A backless strappy top from local designer Stolen! The design couldn’t be any other brand, and I know people can recognise it when I wear it. Plus I like how the backless cut gives it a bit of an edge.
