CFDA and Ebay have taken a second lap around with their collaboration of customized handbags promoting awareness for the unfortunate spread of counterfeit fashion with a strong tag line in big bold print saying “You Can’t Fake Fashion." More than 70 designers have contributed their creations to this cause including Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, Betsey Johnson and The Row. The auction started this morning at 11 am EST, and all will be sold on Ebay until March 31st. At $200 a bag, the designs are in 4 exclusive shapes: the duffle tote, the satchel tote, the gear tote, and the bucket tote. There is also an exclusive line of simpler bags going for $45, encouraging all you creatives to customize them yourselves. But hurry up and get them while they are still available! Many have sold out in just hours, and if it’s anything like the CFDA and Ebay collabo that went down last year, fans from all over the world will be scrambling to get the last of these stylish totes! All items will be sold under Ebay’s “buy it now” tab.
Join in on a good cause; contribute to the awareness of counterfeit designs and carry around a great bag to show your support for fashion and its right to be real!
Unless you're looking for home items or baby clothes, you'll be hard pressed to get your hands on any Missoni for Target; even though the retailer restocked and put the collection back on the site yesterday. What you'll see is mostly leftovers, as all the coveted pieces are gone again (and probably being listed on Ebay for 10 times their cost as I write this article). Blast!
When the weather gets colder, the one thing that doesn't slow down is the shopping. Online shopping becomes the easiest way to buy whatever pops into your head. Plus, you will probably find sales that are exclusively online. Here are a few sites for the guys to stay hooked on.

It wasn't Dr. Jack Kevorkian pulling the plug this time. eBay, however, was the one who took over. On Monday, eBay removed a listing off of its site for Dr. Death's original 1968 VW van.
Dr. Kevorkian used the van for numerous assisted suicides. The automobile was just portrayed in the HBO movie, You Don't Know Jack, which is based on Dr. Kevorkian's story as a right-to-die activist.
With the highest bid of $3,400 and just three days left in the auction, eBay stated that the auction violated its policy of "murderabilia," which states that the online hosting company will not support murder-related items from the past 100 years.
I am a huge Celine Dion fan. I'm not ashamed of it. I own the scrapbook, Celine Dion: For Keeps. My friend and I once payed $12 to see her last Vegas show, A New Day, broadcast to our local movie theater. I. Love. Her.
And now she's back.
The super-songstress announced last week that she will be returning to Caesars Palace next spring in a $100 deal consisting of 70 shows a year for three years beginning March 15, 2011.
Will Ferrell Sunscreen is now available online! The comedienne is now the face of three 30 SPF sunblocks: Sun Stroke, Sexy Hot Tan, and Forbidden Fruit. Each bottle features a picture of Ferrell in hilarious glamour shot spoofs. And of course, these images show a lot of skin.
100% of the proceeds from Will Ferrell Sunscreen go to the charity Cancer for College’s College Willpowered Scholarship Fund, which grants college scholarships to survivors of cancer.
Why sunscreen? “I’ve always dreamed of owning a lotion company. And I’ve always hated cancer,” says the funnyman.
To learn more about the charity, or to purchase your own Will Farrell Sunscreen for $12 a pop, go to the charity’s website, Ebay.com, or Amazon.com.
In the spirit of respecting the deceased, it’s rather unsettling that the son of famed 50’s rocker, The Big Bopper aka J. P. Richardson, has disturbed his father’s final resting place to move him to a more observable location. After 50 years of being buried, he was exhumed along with his 16-gauge steel casket which will be sold on eBay as a representation of rock n’ roll. The bidding will start in the next few weeks.
Richardson was born just after his father’s tragic death in a plane crash along side Buddy Holly and Richard Valens, a day that went down in history as “the day the music died.” The unearthing was the first time Richardson saw his dad, who was still adorned with his signature top hat and striped tie. The Big Bopper died just after the release of "Chantilly Lace," a single that would go on to earn millions that the artist would never see. He was only 28 when he passed and has since been reburied in a new casket in his Beaumont hometown. eBay proceeds will fund a musical event in his honor…still, we find this just a little strange. Different strokes I suppose.
