Grace Kelly Loved to Travel
By Jauretsi
Grace Kelly was the epitome of a jet-setter. Here she is, soaking the rays while filming To Catch a Thief on the luxurious shores of Monaco. If you’re living in cold parts of the US, it’s best to plot a warm trip for yourself and run for the sun this holiday season. Luckily, eBay’s Holiday Collection 2012, which is officially available today, offers an array of travel items, including Billy Reid’s set of sensible totes, bags, and jacket bags. The whole Billy Reid collection can be viewed here, along with additional recommended items for an island escape. To view individual photos of the entire collection, including pieces from our other six designers (Fallon, Chris Benz, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi), visit here. Get these limited edition items while they’re hot. We expect these very affordable pieces to disappear before you get on that airplane heading south. AVAILABLE NOW!

Marilyn Loved Bling
By Jauretsi
To Marilyn, diamonds were “a girl’s best friend”. Today, in a more conscious world, we think Marilyn would have substituted her jewels for cute imitations, such as these adorable Fallon earrings, part of the eBay Holiday Collection 2012. The clock is ticking. There are only 3 days left before these gems are released on Monday, November 12th via the Fashion Vault page on eBay. In addition to Fallon, eBay collaborated with Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi. You can check out product shots from our seven designers here, to see what’s in store. Another female icon of the moment, Katie Holmes, was actually spotted on New York streets walking with Steven Alan’s iPad case from this same capsule collection, seen here on InStyle. 
If you’ve fallen in love with any one of the pieces, here’s a little secret. eBay will be having a 1 day sale for the early birds. If you download the eBay Fashion App this weekend, you’ll be invited to scoop up any of the seven designers on Sunday, a day before the sale goes online Monday morning. Did we mention one of our designers, Chris Benz, got lots of love this week during election night? Get yourself to these collector items first.

Animal Spirit: The Penguin
By Jauretsi
This Holiday season, we look to the Penguin as our animal spirit to observe. Luckily eBay’s Holiday Collection offers just that. But first, what is an animal totem? They are animals that appear in your life (whether its on TV, or a strangers clothing, or in the wild). Animal spirits choose their owner, and offer spiritual guidance if we understand their instinctual behaviors and natural habitats. The penguin is a powerful symbol to have in your life representing respect, love and strength in character. Their black and white uniform suggests formality which lends to their leadership qualities. Because they move swiftly from water to land, it is believed that the penguin totem teaches connection between the physical and the spiritual. If you find yourself surrounded by penguin reminders in your day, you may be blessed with lucid dreaming or astral projecting.

If you find yourself drawn to this animal, it is advised to surround yourself with little visual reminders. Tibi, one of eBay’s seven Holiday Collection Designers created some cozy wintery penguin sweaters in her collection available November 12, 2012. Tibi’s penguin inspired collection normally sells for $375 retail, but eBay’s limited edition series of Tibi penguin sweaters will cost you only $75. Inspiration from other retailers include christmas ornaments, slippers, broaches, or pillows. Embrace the regal penguin, and he’ll take care of you in return.
