Check out one of the first girls I photographed at Art Basel Miami Beach. A Miami native! Lots of respect that she pulls off all black in such a hot, typically-colorful, place.

Jewelry designer and art afficcionado Tara Benmeleh is dressed up and ready to go in sunglasses by Balmain, a Rick Owens jacket, a dress by DKNY, Margiela peep-toe shoes, and a Topshop clutch. What does she look for when shopping on eBay? Tara keeps it classic with items that can stand the test of time, because, as she puts it, “Clothes stay with me.”

Winning with my @shipley_halmos x @CFDA high tech bracelet (which doubles as a USB cord)… It’s all for charity, read about it on www.isaaclikes.com! @ebay_fashion @ebayelectronics

Check out some photos I took for Isaac! He’s super cool. I really enjoy his blog - he writes about fashion, not-fashion (men & women), life, and answers your relationship questions on Tumblr. He’s a great writer, super chill (Kiwi!), funny, and unpretentious. It’s cool to see life from his perspective.
Expect more photos!
Thanks again Isaac. These photos are for a project Ebay Fashion is doing with Shipley & Halmos and CFDA. The proceeds go to various charities, etc. Read more on  www.isaaclikes.com

The Inside Source also snapped Lily at last years Art Basel 2012, where she shared her fashion influences.

DetailsxCFDA Men’s Project - The Weekender

Details Magazine and the CFDA have come together for second year in a row to create a set of 20 unique duffle bags with menswear designers like Richard Chai, Billy Reid, Marc Jacobs, and many more. 

I am thankful to be able to give you an exclusive sneak peek at five of my favorite bags: 1. Todd Snyder, 2. Robert Geller, 3. Tommy Hilfiger, 4.  Duckie Brown, and 5. Billy Reid - it was definitely hard to choose. I’m impressed by how each designer recreated the classic Army/Navy bag. 

The bags will go on sale on Ebay on June 10 and all proceeds will go to the CFDA Foundation which supports emerging designers.

For more information, check the @Details, @CFDA, and @eBayFashion Twitter accounts and follow the #DetailsxCFDA hashtag.

Happy bidding!

Title: Account Executive/Merchandiser
What you generally do all day: Meetings with clients, work with designer on upcoming season mixes, problem solve, problem solve, problem solve.  Then I explore NYC to get inspired for my blog, thefashionblanket.com.
Describe work environment: I work in a showroom — casual atmosphere, big tables, samples everywhere, listening to a shuffle of my iTunes, a rotation of Wild Nothing, Kisses, Atlas Sound, The Drums, Active Child… the list goes on.
My Favorite eBay score is a Sterling Silver all over embossed cuff with a big native eagle on it. It’s super light & I wear it everyday. Questions come up all the time… “Where did you get that dope cuff?!”… “Ebaygirl!”

Meet Yara Flinn, a designer for her own line called Nomia. A lover of music, she told Rolling Stone she listened to Grimes, A.R & Machines, Elite Gymnastics, Burial and Zomby for a little inspiration while creating her 2012 collection.

Company Girl: Whitney Brown
Feature: Co-owner of Valentine-NYC.com and model
What you generally do all day: I spend most days working from my apartment if I’m not producing a shoot for Valentine or at a modeling job. I spend a lot of time using Skype so I can talk to my business partner Paloma, who lives in LA. We’re constantly discussing branding, photography, collaborations, fabric, and production for our next Valentine project. 
Describe work environment: My apartment has amazing energy and lots of space so I never feel too claustrophobic. I am always listening to my Spotify playlist (Musica Bonita), burning my Milly+Wong candle and drinking La Colombe coffee from my French press. At some point I’ll usually have a casting or a lunch meeting (Hampton Chutney or The Butchers Daughter are my favorites for lunch). And if I’m already out I’ll try to get a workout in at Body By Simone or Equinox in Soho (booty lift Wednesdays woot woot!). If it’s a really good day I’ll meet my boyfriend for drinks and dinner at Barrio Chino when he gets off work. Love me some Mexican! Go home, walk the dog, another Skype with Paloma then chill with my man. Life ain’t so bad.

The Inside Source was stoked to see the electric blue Dana wandering around Fashion Week covering for her blog www.Blind-Stab.com. First because we love a good “one-sie”, and second because she told us she bought this jumpsuit on eBay. The resourceful fashionista topped it off with  purse and shoes by Margiela for H&M. Her ring and hats are H&M also. It’s fashion done with grace and style that is not wallet breaking. Well done Dana.

Here’s a fashion plate who The Inside Source coincidentally snapped at Art Basel 2012 also. This snowy Fashion Week in New York, we spotted her wearing Kuboraum sunglasses, a Dell Plummer necklace, and dress by Lucia Cuba — topped off with Marsell shoes and a fur clutch. “I usually search for Comme des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto on eBay” says the fashion writer for www.le-report.com. “I wanted the Yohji mountain hat in black and only found it in brown”. Keep searching Lily! It’ll come back around again on eBay. It always does.
