Happy 50th Birthday NYC Ballet
From Fame to Black Swan, New York city has always been the city of dreams for dancers in movies. Real life is no different. The prestigious New York City ballet, at Lincoln Center, is the mecca of the disciplined dance, both for performers and enthusiasts alike. This Spring, the epic Ballet organization turns 50 years old. 
One of the most intriguing thoughts is that the medium has always resonated with fashionable women — think Audrey Hepburn’s classic ballet flats to Carrie Bradshaw’s infamous tutu skirt. Taking a peek at the eBay closet, we continue to see the rise of ballet consciousness, with almost 20% increase of the ballet flats by Repetto. Beyond that, we can attest that the tutu skirts have increased 63%, body suits are up 51%, and tulle skirts up 46% on eBay. 
We don’t foresee “ballet chic” ever going out of style, but we do strongly suggest donning the elegance this season to honor the half century birthday of the craft. You can begin by checking out En Pointe, a collection of items put together on eBay to launch your search.

Flower Jackets

Recently, we spotted a barrage of flower jackets worn on the streets thanks to New York Magazine. To get in on the action this Spring, take a look at some flowered selections on eBay this week. If you don’t see something you like in this general search, try specialized searches on eBay for Zara, Givenchy and J. Crew — who are all flirting with the trend this season.

Editors Pick: Baublebar

If you’re tight in the pocketbook, but cannot resist more blingy jewels in your ensembles, you may want to check out Baublebar. Self-described as “designer jewelry at guilt-free prices”, now you can even feel less guilt by securing a few items on eBay at reduced rates.

Here’s a few Baublebar selections spotted on eBay this week (seen above)

Spring Kimono

For centuries, attractive women have been donning kimono’s in traditional styles. The modern woman knows how to flip the classic item into many forms — from cover-up to micro-mini-skirt dress when cinched.

Luckily, eBay has a myriad of authentic Kimono’s, such as this black vintage Flower/Phoenix number (pictured above), sold here. If you miss this one, take a look at all the other options of short Kimono’s. Beware, you may be tempted to purchase more than one.

Editors Pick: Sophia Webster

We can’t help ogling over the animated heels created by young designer Sophia Webster. Lucky Magazine shouted her out as one of their “lines we love” too.

Luckily, we discovered a batch of Sophia Webster shoes available on eBay. Get these models (seen above) before they run out of time.

Happy Birthday Eiffel Tower
Today is the birthday of one of the most epic and monuments in the world — besides the Pyramids, of course. Born in 1889, the Eiffel Tower has been considered an architectural manifestation of love and romance worldwide. Expect some exuberant festivities in the heart of Paris! 
As you know, eBay loves to discover the science of human behavior within our e-commerce acting as a zeitgeist of the moment. One thing we learned is the desire for men and women to drape themselves in French brands this coming month. No kidding. The considerable rise of sale of Hermes (27% up), Dior (13% up), and Saint Laurent (10% up) have brought out the world’s inner Franco-philes this March. Let’s not forget Cartier too.
If you need a proper French cheat-sheet on eBay, check out our curated collections called Paris Je T’aime and Parisian Street Chic. There is no such thing as too much sophistication. Viva France. 
Au Revoir and Joyeux Anniversaire, Eiffel!
