Remembering Annabel

Today marks the six month anniversary of the passing of friend, muse, and stylist, Annabel Tollman. Annabel traveled far and wide espousing her philosophy that sexy women come in all sizes. Her old Hollywood aesthetic shaped glamourous looks for clients like Scarlett Johansson, Liv Tyler, and Shakira. We’ll miss her clever remarks as eBay’s spokeswoman, and so we leave you with one of her personal mottos: “Make a fairy tale and go and live in it.” Amen! 

Here’s some of Annabel’s ethereal energy and incredible sense of style.

Celebrating eBay Feed in LA

By Jauretsi

Monday night was a big night for eBay in Los Angeles, and Palihouse is where it all happened. Last month, eBay celebrated the new Feed in New York with East Coast magazine editors and creative friends. The LA gathering was hosted by stylist Annabel Tollman, who gracefully presented the new eBay Feed to West Coast media and creative types. In addition to the Feed, the Hollywood crowd got a peek at eBay’s upcoming Holiday Capsule Collection, a limited edition series of products ranging from design to fashion. The evening also presented the new 2013 “You Can’t Fake Fashion” tote bag, part of a collaboration between eBay and CFDA that raises awareness against counterfeit goods and celebrates original design. Altogether, the stylish LA guests had a ball and were privy to a wonderfully curated sneak peek of what’s to come with the new eBay. 

One of our party guests, blogger Grasie Mercedes, took a fancy to Tibi’s lace embellished sweater as seen on her blog GrasieMercedes.com. “I’ve worn it at least 5 times in the past week” says the LA based writer, “obsessed!”.

A Night To Celebrate the New eBay

By Jauretsi

On the eve of eBay’s Feed launch, an incredible group of creative New Yorkers gathered to break bread and have a first-peek look at the goods. eBay Feed is an automated, personalized, and continuously updated aggregation tool that’s tailored to you. The idea is a little like creating a newsfeed, but instead of news, it offers visual inspiration that’s instantly shop-able. eBay’s President Devin Wenig and I decided to celebrate the new Feed in addition to eBay’s new enhancements announced Wednesday — helloooo, new logo!

Fashion connoisseurs Constance White, Joshua Peskowitz, Annabel Tollman, and Joshua Kissi with Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette sat side by side with Designers Costello Tagliapietra, Catherine Malandrino, Unis, and Saturday Surf NYC Co-Founder Colin Tunstall. The dinner took place at the Highline Stages in New York City with farm-like tables which added to the joy of mingling. Instyle captured a gallery of a few attendees. The real star of the show was musical talent, Soko, who flew into New York for just 10 hours to play us a few songs from her first album. Her intimate dinner set created a roar of applause. Soko just had that magic dust. Kelly Framel of TheGlamourai gushed “Thank you for introducing us all to the incredible Soko. I’ve had her album on repeat ever since!!”

How much do we love Annabel Tollman?
By Jauretsi
One of our previous eBay spokespeople is the elegant Annabel Tollman who’s dressed power girls such as Scarlett Johansson and the Olson twins. She’s also done work for top names including Karl Lagerfeld and Bruce Weber. Essentially, she’s “in the know”. Tales of Endearment wrote a little piece on this sophisticated stylist who’s a self proclaimed “vintage-a-holic”.
“I think I just ploughed my fee right back into the company”, she confessed about her stint at eBay. “Most people are frightened to buy clothing on-line, but if you have your measurements and stick to shapes that you know suit you, it’s not that hard. I also have the most amazing alterations lady – that’s really key when you shop vintage.”
