Vogue Italia, May 1971. Issue available here.
Christy Turlington could sell ice to an Eskimo, and we’re loving her perched on this vintage Mini Cooper in a shoot for Vogue Italia back in 1992. This classic little ride is in high demand and short supply, unfortunately. There are only a handful of them available on eBay right now. The good news is, they’re fairly inexpensive, which might be the benefit of the car being so absolutely teeny.

So you might not be game to go for the Barbie blue eyeshadow seen here on model Erin Heatherton, but perhaps there’s another makeup takeaway for us — silver nail polish, perhaps? Metallics are great for summer, able to blend with lighter colored clothing just as easily as any neutral shade. Our nail polish of choice is usually Essie, so we dug around on eBay for silver and (lucky you!) we found quite a few bottles.

When I’m looking for an interesting piece of jewelry, I can’t always find it at my local NYC shop. My go-to for unique scores is the treasure trove of heirloom pieces on eBay. There’s great cocktail jewelry and vintage diamond engagement rings to stack with newer pieces, or even chunky men’s pieces you can have sized down to fit your dainty lady hands.
