As Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw famously says in Sex and the City, “It’s just a little bag, but we’d feel naked in public without it!” Yes, dear friend, make sure that if you’re going to be ‘dressed’ in public, you are wearing the right accessory. And what is more divine than a Kelly or a Birkin?

Online shopping is by far the fastest growing sector of the retail industry, and our offerings at Sotheby’s are of the highest quality, ensuring that the trend for top level online shopping has well and truly arrived at our clients’ doorstep. I myself find browsing and bidding hard to resist, given the convenience factor, and the exceptional selection which would otherwise be hard to access. This is one aspect of internet shopping that will soon become indispensable!
