"Up All Night" Collection by Pharell Williams
We’re loving the collections created by Pharrell on the new eBay platform, eBay Today. If there were ever a top 10 list of items you would need to “stay up all night and get lucky”… these items surely fit the bill (including this ace Versace jacket for H&M Black Blazer Jacket).

This brand new, 1st edition commemorative Gianni Versace memorial book from 1997 is an unbelievable example of the obscure, seriously one-of-a-kind gems you can find on eBay.

I was tickled pink to hear of her love for eBay. Here’s a chat she had with the folks at Refinery29.
What is your philosophy of buying modern pieces and why aren’t you drawn to buying contemporary designers?
“I think there are two reasons that stem from the whole eBay thing. I can’t afford to go to nice stores and buy designer clothes, but I don’t want to always wear H&M or something. It started from that. It’s some weird addiction I have. I find things so cheap on eBay that nothing else seems reasonable any longer. Am I crazy?

I only want to find things super cheap… [MORE]
What’s the last big item you scored on eBay?

Red Carpet Roundup
It was a battle between old Hollywood glamour and futuristic fashion at the Oscars last night, with the likes of Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence preferring traditionally feminine numbers by Oscar de la Renta and Dior Haute Couture, respectively.
