Fly the Coupe
Pink carpet? Check. Beehive hairdo? Check. Floor-length fur? Check and check. All you need to complete this insanely decadent picture is a Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Since its first unveiling in 1949, the de Ville has been an icon of American luxury. (Remember this Caddy-inspired collection from Prada?) If you’re aching for a Sunday driver like this, make sure to create an eBay alert for “Coupe de Ville” so you know the moment someone lists one for sale.

Trendspotting: Mirrored Sunglasses
Iridescent mirrored shades started popping up a year ago on the runways but they really came into the spotlight when they were recently embraced by editors like Giovanna Battaglia and, subsequently, snapped by all the street style photographers. Polyvore is a great source for seeing what’s on the market right now (check out the options here). Sneaky shoppers that we are, we suggest scoping out your faves and then checking to see if they’re available on eBay. When it comes to an eBay search item like sunglasses, it’s best to be extremely specific in your query, otherwise you’ll end up with thousands of options that might not be right for you. Get the designer, the style name, and know the cost ahead of time. It’s a sure-fire way of getting exactly what you want… hopefully for a bargain.

Cuz This is Thriller!
Today, the King of Pop would be 54 years old… or his passing away in 2009 could mean he’s only 3 years old in some other magical incarnation. Wherever he is, we wanna say Happy Birthday Michael! In honor of his legacy, I suggest you ladies bust out your blue leopard today. eBay has some styles from Givenchy to Louis Vuitton. Remember Ola Ray’s splash of red in 1983? Don’t forget the red pumps.
