Curator Corner: Black and White
Pictured above, one is Zara and one is Givenchy. The sunglasses are just good ‘ol fashioned Miu Miu’s. All of them, however, are rich in contrast — the yin and the yang.
Take a look at the incredible batch of eBay finds curated by Phoebe for the collection entitled Distinction.
Lupita Nyong’o: The Face of Miu Miu
If you watched the Golden Globes last night, you would have seen rising star Lupita Nyong’o grace the carpet for best supporting actress in 12 Years a Slave. Maybe that’s why the current Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2014 campaign used Lupita alongside Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bella Heathcote as young women to be noticed. Alas, the best supporting globe eventually went to Jennifer Lawrence, but we’re certain that Lupita and her star presence in fashion is only getting started.
If you’re craving a little more of this chic brand in your closet, take a look at all the Miu Miu options available on eBay.

J.J. Martin, a Milan-based editor over at Wallpaper and the Wall Street Journal Magazine, is looking ready to take on Art Basel in a J. Crew shirt, a bag by Valextra, Miu Miu heels, and a vintage skirt. Who’s her favorite designer right now? Valentino, of course.

London Fashion Week
Blogger Irina Lakicevic is a dentist by profession, but secretly (and now publicly), LOVES clothes. Her blog, A Portable Package covers all things stylish, sculpted, and minimalist, “all with a touch of french non-chalance” she writes.
"Do I EVER shop on Ebay?" she responded with glee to our question. "Addicted! Proenza Schouler, Balenciaga, and Celine. I actually got these Celine shoes on Ebay" (picture above).

I Spy: Miu Miu Heels
Do you ever wish you snapped up that pair of designer heels you fell in love with four seasons ago but never got around to purchasing? If the regret still lingers, eBay is an amazing place to hunt down some oldies-but-goodies. Take, for instance, these Miu Miu heels spotted in a Spring/Summer 2010 shoot by Paolo Roversi. You’d be wise to comb through eBay’s selection of the brand to see if you can score a pair.

FW Style: Stella Rose
Model and blogger Stella Rose runs her own blog called Confessions of a Female Drag Queen which details her outrageous style. When using eBay, Stella runs straight to brands she respects. ”I usually like to search by brands, like Miu Miu” says the writer in town for Fashion Week.

Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down
This year we’ve really seen the reintroduction of the female tie. One of the most iconic women to transform this masculine fashion piece into one with feminine, intellectual appeal was Diane Keaton in 1977’s Annie Hall. Recently, both Chloë Sevigny and Emmy Rossum took the headstrong look to new places for Miu Miu and Ralph Lauren, respectively. Lucky for us, the design duo Ruffian created two special ties for the eBay Holiday Collection to be released next month (pictured to the left of Rossum). Keep your eye on November 12th, when these two limited edition ties will be available online at eBay.
