Gloria Steinem & Tavi Gevinson

At the premiere for last nights MAKERS, a digital platform sharing stories of incredible women of empowerment, I found myself a few feet from both the godmother of feminism, Gloria Steinem, and the newest blood on the block, 15 year old blogger Tavi Gevinson. Tavi was raised on a strong diet of Sassy and Jane Magazines, Riottt Girl zine’s, and above all Gloria Steinem. First I greeted Tavi who stood mouth agape near her literary idol saying “she is amazing”. Then Tavi reached to her necklace and leaned into me quietly confessing… [MORE] “Look, I actually wore this by accident tonight” pointing to her Gloria neck chain. “I hope I don’t seem like a stalker” she said in the most humble manner. Little did she know Gloria fondly remembered speaking with her.  I found myself equally sensitive to the magic aura of the Ms magazine founder, so I was compelled to ask her about the new generations challenges of female empowerment. In other words, how does a young woman today keep her eye on the ball, versus a woman in the 70’s. “They know what is unfair in their lives. We are here to support. We are not here to tell them what to do”, Gloria told The Inside Source. “Remember when you are a little kid, and you say it’s not fair, you are not the boss of me… you now that instinct?” asks the legend. She raises her fist lovingly and says “hang on to that”.

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!”.
