Shelley Anne Morecroft is a lifestyle blogger who confesses that she lives and breathes fashion. Originally from Germany, she now lives in London and has gained a following for her airy, well put together posts which are fresh and modern. An ambassador for online store Boohoo, she has caught the attention of the retail world and describes her personal style as 'dressed up and chic'.
Shelley has confessed in her most recent blog post that she has a 'love for travelling and a fear for flying', you can read her blog here. We invited her to Bagista for a chat about pre-loved fashion and so that she could show us some ways in which she would style her favourite picks from our website.
Of her favourite designers, she says that it has to be Karl Lagerfeld. "He is so iconic, not just because of his trademark look but also because of his designs. I really respect his work, passion and effort he puts into everything from photographing his own collections, directing everything, writing a book and coming up with designs that always sweep me off my feet." Lagerfeld is definitely one of the most iconic designers of our time, creating collections that capture the desires of women of all ages.
Pre-loved shopping is 'a win-win situation'
The bag on her wishlist, she says, 'has to be a Gucci', and she claims that Gucci's bags are actually her all time favourite. It comes as no surprise then, that she chose the Guccissima Emily Bag from our collection to style. She pairs this with a floral patterned mini dress, in lilac to pair perfectly with the pink hue of the bag. This makes for a feminine spring/summer look.
When it comes to pre-loved shopping, Shelley says that she loves the idea, "especially when it comes to high-priced items. I personally sell my items too and it's a win-win situation. I make some money and the other person has an expensive item for a fraction of the price that has only been used a few times. There is nothing not to love!"
