Curator Corner: Chrissie Miller
Chrissie is one of the coolest chicks you’ll ever meet in New York. Just check out who visits her living room, aka Club Chrissie, a web show on Pharrell Williams’ channel, iamOTHER. When she’s not in her “Pee-Wee-esque” playhouse, she’s also a designer, a filmmaker, and, best of all, a self-described “vintage eBay lover.” We invited Chrissie into the new eBay platform so she can gather a collection of things that make her happy. Lucky for us she is now one of our Curators on the recently launched eBay Today.
Jauretsi: Tell us the name of your first collection and how it inspired you?
Chrissie Miller: I’ve been naming all of my collections after song titles! My first collection is called “She’s So Cold.” It’s a Rolling Stones song. I was inspired by taking a trip to upstate New York and just wanting to dress like I am in the woods all the time! L.L. Bean, Patagonia, North Face — brands like that. Really practical, warm clothes with a touch of ’90s prep.
J: Now that eBay will be adding the “follow” button on collections, what types of things would you be interested in following on the site?
CM: VINTAGE! I am obsessed. I use eBay to buy 80% of my clothes: t-shirts, denim, dresses, coats, etc. Also, I just moved into a new apartment, so I have been looking for home things, as well. Lamps, a coffee table, vintage bookshelf.
J: In terms of your own personal work, what projects are you working on now or what can we expect to see soon?
CM: I just made a short film with Vans that I am super excited about!
J: What is your favorite eBay find ever?
CM: Mmm, that is hard because there are so many. I think it would have to be a Van Halen gold necklace that I had been looking for forever! (Seen above)
