London Fashion Week
Blogger Irina Lakicevic is a dentist by profession, but secretly (and now publicly), LOVES clothes. Her blog, A Portable Package covers all things stylish, sculpted, and minimalist, “all with a touch of french non-chalance” she writes. 
"Do I EVER shop on Ebay?" she responded with glee to our question. "Addicted! Proenza Schouler, Balenciaga, and Celine. I actually got these Celine shoes on Ebay" (picture above).

FW Style: Veronica Popoiacu
Fashion Blogger and Artist Veronica Popoiacu knows how to wear colors that pop. Her jacket is H&M, her jeansRalph Lauren, and shoes are by Shoemint.com. The one item we can’t stop staring at is that awesome hot red bag by Phillip Lim. When The Inside Source asked her how she sifted through eBay, the thrifting fan quickly admitted ”I usually search for vintage jewelry”.

Spots of Sunshine 
With the charcoal walls and black light fixtures, this room relies on its crisp white duvet and yellow accessories to brighten up the space (and a few well-placed pumps, of course). The blanket, in particular, brings everything into focus, jelling the room into one cohesive space. Inspired, we did a quick search on eBay and found this gorgeous, canary yellow cashmere blanket by Ralph Lauren Home ($275). And if you’re looking for pillows with strong graphics, we found these in yellow and white.

Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down
By Jauretsi 
This year we’ve really seen the reintroduction of the female tie. One of the most iconic women to transform this masculine fashion piece into one with feminine, intellectual appeal was Diane Keaton in 1977’s Annie Hall. Recently, both Chloë Sevigny and Emmy Rossum took the headstrong look to new places for Miu Miu and Ralph Lauren, respectively. Lucky for us, the design duo Ruffian created two special ties for the eBay Holiday Collection to be released next month (pictured to the left of Rossum). Keep your eye on November 12th, when these two limited edition ties will be available online at eBay.

Ole Ralph Lauren
By Sade Lythcott
Ralph Lauren tweeted a photo from his recent show saying,  ”I am forever inspired by far away exotic places.” In this case, we suspect Spain is on the list. Check out RALPH LAUREN’s SPRING 2013 RTW  to soak in the whole Spanish matador inspired collection. We’re loving all of the black and gold. Ole!

Congratulations Fashion Flux, our Polyvore/eBay Contest Winner
By Jauretsi

First off, I’d like to thank all the 3,000 entries which were so skillfully crafted with eBay goodies. It was truly difficult to select the top 3 candidates, and more painstaking to narrow it down to 1 winner — but alas, we have our top dog, FashionFlux. This is what we’ve learned about her on her Tumblr. “I like sugar skulls, swings, Twilight Zone, Rod Serling, siracha sauce, boggle, art, and philosophical banter” says our winner. Her real identity is Inbal (Jerusalem) from “the Windy City of capricious temperatures and floozy politicians” she writes on her site. Since she’ll be diving into RISD studies soon, her Polyvore work will be more limited, so we’re happy to have caught her eye before losing her to the books. You can also follow her like-minded crew called Simply Fashion on Polyvore.

Anyway, we’d like to congratulate Fashion Flux on her $500 certificate to go nuts on eBay. Thank you to all the creative spirits who submitted a collage. You can follow my own Polyvore creations at Jauretsi/Polyvore. Happy collaging!
