Trashy Or Sneaky-Smart: Red Sole-ing Your Pumps À La Louboutin?

Buying a knock-off is one thing … but making your own knock-off? Try searching for “Louboutin red soles” on eBay, and you’ll find a couple dozen auctions for red adhesive soles in the style of the classic Christian Louboutin touch. Some are being marketed as a product to use as protection for your real Loubs, but it’s also a sneaky way to make your pumps look like the real thing. Would you do this to your shoes? Think it’s a clever or stupid idea? [eBay] Keep reading »

Check Out The New eBay Fashion App

I’m a staunch believer in buying clothes and shoes on eBay. Though not a lover of used things, I am a huge fan of deals, and the enormous selection of new goods still tagged and in their boxes makes it my go to website when I’ve got something very specific in mind and don’t want to pay full price. (I got new studded Prada heels for $400 from $800 this summer, for example. Win.) Annoyingly, though, eBay’s iPhone app isn’t great for browsing, meaning that my shopping problems used to have to wait for a desk top. Now, however, I’ve been obsessing inappropriately all morning with the new eBay fashion app for iPhone. The app lets you store items you’re interested in a virtual “closet,” share links via Facebook, Twitter, and a whole cadre of other social media outlets and even build outfits using items from different parts of the site. Download it here. [Forbes] Keep reading »

Buy Jenna Jameson’s Old Shoes On eBay

Jenna Jameson, The Most Famous Porn Star in the World, is selling her old stuff on eBay. Have you long dreamed of owning a pair of Yves Saint Laurent black platforms that faintly smell of porn star feet? If you’re a size six and have a spare $1,299, you, my friend, are in luck. Looking for a pair of rhinestone bedazzled handcuffs worn by the star of “Smells Like … Sex”? They can be yours for a mere $89.99. Girlfriend has some good taste, though, seeing as the lot includes a pair of tan Tom Ford sunglasses that I would buy for $189.99, except for, well … you know. In any case, shop ’til you drop at the House of Jameson, girls! [House of Jameson] Keep reading »

Fashion Writer Lynn Yaeger Buys Weird Dolls On Ebay

Apparently, iconic fashion writer Lynn Yaeger is obsessed with eBay. Since she first discovered the auction site about 12 years ago, Lynn has used it as a convenient alternative to flea markets and antique shows, snapping up an Hèrmes Kelly bag, multiple Becassine dolls, a bunch of Victorian children’s jewelry, and more (she used her high school French to purchase the Hèrmes bag on French eBay). It’s nice to know we aren’t the only ones addicted to this time-suck, scrolling through pages of items for hours on end! And not only does Lynn, who regularly contributes to Vogue, T, The New York Times Style Magazine, and other notable publications, troll the auction site every morning in search of her latest obsessions, but she’ll be contributing a few stories to eBay’s online magazine, The Inside Source, over the next few weeks. We can’t wait to hear her advice for scooping up fancy finds, plus, the photos of Lynn among her booty are priceless. [The Inside Source] Keep reading »

Now You Can Shop Oprah’s Closet

Oprah Winfrey is all about the generosity. After all, she devotes an entire episode of her talk show each year to gifting the guests with her favorite things. Now, in an effort to “de-clutter” her life, Oprah went through her entire closet, and chose 150 items to sell on eBay. But while I’ll go through my closet to raise funds for new shopping trips, Oprah has a philanthropic motive. The funds from her sale will go to her Leadership Academy of Girls, a school that she founded. So, while you’re relishing your new designer handbag which was previously owned by a media mogul, you’ll be able to feel good about your new purchase. Of the 150 items, you’ll find all of the big names — a Valentino satin evening bag, a Tahari purple silk dress coat, and even Chanel. Bid on your favorites until March 11!

Profiting From Alexander McQueen’s Death?

Perhaps it’s unavoidable that after celebrity deaths, products associated with them go flying off the shelves. Alexander McQueen‘s case proves no exception as it looks like people are both running to scoop up the designer’s wares, or trying to make a quick dime by selling them off. Over the past two days, more than 200 new Alexander McQueen auctions have been posted to eBay, not only advertising clothing and accessories, but also old magazine issues featuring the designer, domain names, and even the New York Post cover announcing his death. Similarly, Refinery29 reports via Twitter that a Barneys branch in New York had sold 500 of McQueen’s signature skull scarves in one day. That must be some sort of record, as they don’t come cheap (about $275 each!). [eBay, TweetPhoto.com] Keep reading »

Straight Woman Auctions Her Right To Marry On eBay

How cool! A straight woman named Jamie Frevele is auctioning off her right to marry on eBay after New York State voted not to grant homosexual couples the right to gay marriage. Of course, a person can’t actually transfer a right on eBay, but all the money Frevele does earn off her eBay auction will go to The Point Foundation, which provides financial support, mentoring and leadership training to students who are marginalized by their sexual orientation. Says her eBay listing:

I will write you up a fancy, wonderful, articulate proclamation handing over my right to get married. I have no official documentation because this is something I was born with since I was born heterosexual. Unfortunately, this is only a symbolic gesture…Your bid, on the other hand, is real, and the donation you make to an organization that supports those who have been treated as second-class citizens will be well worth it.

You’ve got four days left to bid—and hey, now might be a good time to do your holiday charity donation! [eBay] Keep reading »

eBay Joins The Online Sample Sale Craze

My inbox is inundated with sample sales — from Gilt Groupe, Editor’s Closet, The Clothing Line, and Daily Candy’s updates. But now there’s one more to add to the list of tempting sales. eBay must feel left out, because they just launched their very own online shopping section. Their Fashion Vault opened with goodies from DKNY up to 70 percent off (which seem to have already sold out). So, if you’re searching for designer deals, make sure to sign up for their newsletter and prepare to click fast for your desired purchases. At least there are no girl fights involved over the last pair of shoes in the online world. [SHEFinds] Keep reading »

Shauna Sand Is Going To Sell Her Stuff On eBay


I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately, but I seem to have developed some kind of strange, vague obsession with Shauna Sand. There is something about a woman who walks around 24/7 in Lucite stripper shoes, who has turned herself into a kind of living Barbie, who may very well have produced her own sex tape (or not!), that captivates me. It’s like watching a zombie that looks like a living doll navigate the world in stilettos. Anyway. Now, Shauna’s gonna sell her stuff on eBay, and the video promo for it boggles. Boggles! I can’t believe I have to wait until Oct. 23 to bid on those rhinestone-and-Lucite heels. [Heyman Hustle] Keep reading »

Run, Do Not Walk, To Norma Kamali’s eBay Store

This morning we trekked through the rain to the Apple store in downtown NYC where we were treated to quite the unusual fashion show. In the spirit of “the democratization of fashion,” instead of hustling past bodyguards and navigating seat assignments there was no insane crowd as usual — even though I had an invite, no one checked and it seemed pretty open to whomever happened to be laptop shopping at 11 a.m. Seating was first come, first served (a practice which if applied to all shows would mean that they would actually start on time and not 30-45 minutes late, just sayin’). Anyway, Miss Kamali herself took the stage dressed in one of her signature jumpsuits and black cat glasses and chatted away with tech guru Omar Wasow about how technology has impacted the fashion business.
