Animal Spirit: Flamingo
In our series of animal energy-inspired collections to brighten your day, we’re focusing on the flamingo for this hot day in August. Those wearing the pink bird are given a cleanse of the heart. The “art of flirtation” is another quality of the flamingo. Here’s a few home and clothing items to embrace these qualities through the end of summer.

FW Style: Kelley Francis
The Inside Source couldn’t help ask this cool girl, Kelly Francis, where she got that brilliant throw over. She laughed and said, “oh this old thing?”. Ok well, she didn’t quite say that, but she did admit that it was a Topshop piece from 10 seasons ago. Kelly uses eBay to sift hardcore for “no name” second hand objects rather than seek luxury designer brands. She prefers an obscure win every time. She even suggested to our readers to look for this Top Shop piece on eBay since she spotted some extra ones in the past.

How Did I Not See This on eBay Myself?
Refinery29 editor Christene Barberich has decided to empty her closet and sell some of her designer goodies, including a few gems she picked up on eBay. “Okay, so our global editor, Connie, told me I was nuts when I snapped these up on eBay,” confesses the fashion writer. “I mean, who didn’t love them when they came down Marc Jacobs’ Spring ‘11 runway? They didn’t quite work on me, but I guarantee some lovely lady will absolutely know how to rock these…AND do them proud.” It’s ok! We’ll take them. If you’re craving these bold and courageous pants, visit the Refinery Closet to grab these for $70 (she’s got mad other pieces for sale, too).

Add to Your eBay Feed: Topshop Flame Heels
If you walk into a party with these on your feet, the shoes will announce that you have arrived. Topshop made these Gasoline Glitter Flame Heels mixed with elegant suede fabric. The heels are available on the Topshop site for $110. Currently, there are none available on eBay, because frankly, who would want to give up these sexy pair of shoes? We recommend you add the shoes to your customized eBay Feed so that when a pair arises on the auction site, eBay will send you an email. It can’t get any easier than that.
