As Seen On the Street: The Everyday Bag

It's the mean green CÉLINE machine! This gorgeous olive green everyday bag is the epitome of modern simplicity. Its structure makes it ultra sleek and the mixed materials make it extra luxurious. With a suede crocodile embossed top flap, a buttery soft leather construction and expandable soft felt suede sides, holding this bag is a dream! The gold hardware closures add a hint of glamour and the single rolled leather top handle wears beautifully over time. However, the best part about this coveted Céline bag is its expandable sides – they allow you to carry a lot with you. So not only is it a gorgeous showstopping bag, but it is also practical!


 

An every day bag for celebrities.


 

This everyday bag will hold massive wallets, makeup, books, baby gear and whatever else you can think of! And as if it couldn't get any better, this luxe bag is timeless and will never go out of style. If you’re looking for your next big investment purchase, you’ve found it. Need a little more convincing? You’ll be part of the Céline Trapeze tote club along with Victoria Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio, actress Dakota Fanning and fashion blogger and entrepreneur Leandra Medine of Man Repeller. If they give it their stamp of approval don’t you think you should too?


Street style photographers have also been snapping this bag like crazy. The bag transitions across multiple seasons, making it a no brainer for fall. After all, golden lime (aka olive green) is one of Pantone's must have colors for autumn. This luxe bag originally retailed for $2,700 and you can make it yours for $1695 on Buy It Now. No waiting for the auction to close – one click and it is yours. It's almost too easy isn't it?

Logos & Luxe Metallics

We’ve rounded up the best (and most luxe) sellers for July! We noticed one predominant trend: logos are cool again. Elle Singapore even describes the phenomena as “Logomania”, while Vogue Arabia takes it a step further and shows us how designer labels are now adding a visual twist to classic logos in the article “How the Statement Logo Bag Made a Cool Comeback”.


Best sellers this month feature logos and luxe metallics.

First up within this emblem heavy trend is the Chanel light pink mini shopping tote. It has a raised pebbled leather ‘CC’ logo with white embroidery stitching. This is an ultra-feminine Chanel bag that we don’t see too often. It’s no wonder it was snatched up by one of our savvy EDO buyers! Maybe she’s sporting it to Sunday brunch this weekend?!


Orange you glad it’s Gucci? This vibrant polished leather bag is perfect for this summer. The featured silver interlocking ‘GG’ hardware and a silver chain-link shoulder strap scream warm weather. The best part? Someone purchased this chic bag in brand new condition for a fraction of the price (smart shopper).


Fuchsia YSL?! Well that is a statement. This elegantly smooth leather clutch was crafted in Italy and is such a beautiful bag to carry with any outfit. The gold ‘Y’ logo functions as a magnetic closure and adds a sleek linear element to this slim horizontal bag. We love it!


Logos weren’t the only thing that were heavily purchased this month. Luxe metallics also had a major moment. Whether it be silver, gold or bronze, we don’t think metallics will ever go out of style. They add instant glamour to any outfit…and everybody needs a little glamour in their life!


The Chanel flap bag is a showstopper, especially in gold. With a classic chainlink woven handle and detachable top strap, this bag can be worn two ways. And who doesn’t like having options?


Gentlemen! We did not forget about you. Givenchy Calf Leather black oxfords were another major seller this month and we can totally see why!


And since our promotion is winding down this month (pun intended) don’t forget you can earn an extra 5% commission on all handbags and watches consigned in August. This Cartier watch gives you an idea of what you could earn on something similar. Act now so you don’t run out of time!


Whether you love logos or opt for luxe metallics, you know where to buy and sell affordable luxury. Fashion should always be fun -- happy shopping!


 

Maximalism: Clothes That Start The Conversation for You

Minimalism has been all the rage for the last few years, so it is refreshing to see fashion do a complete 180 and go in the other direction. Say hello to Maximalism. More is better anyway, right? Maximalism isn’t about piling on everything you own, look to the cool girl maximalists for inspiration. Think Leandra Medine from Man Repeller or even the brilliant and glamorous Iris Apfel. These maximalist ladies remind us that fashion should always be fun! Who doesn’t want playful pieces that do double duty as conversation starters?!

How you embrace this trend is totally up to you. Whether you opt for deconstruction, patches, studs, fringe, chains, prints or embroidery, it’s easy to work into your day to day wardrobe. Forget you even know the word minimalism -- fashion has been anything but minimal lately. With brands like Gucci, Prada, Valentino, and Louis Vuitton pushing the envelope, you can count on seeing punchy details in their recent collections. We’ve handpicked a few of our favorite pieces worthy of starting a conversation, and believe me, we’ve got plenty more where this came from.


Perhaps you’d like a Celine bag constructed from multicolor suede and crafted in Italy? This stylish bag features a punched puzzle design with studded detailing. Going for something even more dramatic? The MCM ‘Munic Lion’ backpack is crafted from monogram leather and features pointy studs and an eye-catching holographic strip along the front. You can also opt to upgrade your sunshine game with Fendi’s clear and blue cateye frames. Don’t forget, the sun never sets on a Fendi fashionista!


All eyes will be on you (literally) when you rock Kenzo’s black and white eye print sweatshirt. Or perhaps a Chanel chainlink necklace is more your style? After all, it’s the epitome of elegance. On the other hand, maybe you just want it all?! (You thought it, not us…) These pieces will make your outfit with very little effort. The best part? You can bring these items home ASAP – four of the five are listed on Buy It Now. No bidding required. That’s right, just one click and it’s yours! Whatever your style is, we hope you bring some fun maximal pieces into your wardrobe this season. We’re giving you an extra incentive to make space in your closet -- during the month of August you receive an extra 5% commission on all handbags and watches consigned. (That’s 65% of the final selling price!)

What to Try This Month: Bright Colors, Italian Cocktails & Yellow Dresses

Glitter hair, bright colors and eye-popping embellishments can only mean one thing – it’s officially August! Chicago’s favorite festival, Lollapalooza kicks off today and while we have nothing against flower crowns and braided hair, we’re making way for something a little better: glitter hair. Whether you rock it in your part, on your ends or all over, it’s sure to make you shine a little brighter in the sun. This month we also recommend popping over to The Museum of Contemporary Art. You can see works by renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami (who once famously collabed with Louis Vuitton).


On the fashion front, it’s all about embellished heels and yellow dresses. Good news! You can rock these trends right into fall. For all our foodie friends, we suggest stopping by Rockit Ranch’s newest late-night spot, Otto Mezzo. With Italian cocktails, wine, beer and delicious bites, this may become your new go-to spot. August, we love you already!


5 Things to Try: Bright Colors, Yellow, Otto Mezzo, Embellishments and Takashi Murakami.

Glitter Hair: We always heart a well-executed festival trend and glitter hair wins in beauty. Whether you rock it in your part, on your ends or all over, it’s sure to make you shine a little brighter in the sun.


Takashi Murakami: The Takashi Murakami exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art is a must see. It’s here through September 24th but don’t delay!


Embellished Heels: We’re all for a trend that can be carried from summer to fall and embellished heels are having a moment.


Yellow: It’s been said time and time again that wearing bright colors can make you feel happier. And while we don’t know if that’s officially true, we’re all for trying anything that boosts endorphins.


Otto Mezzo: This chic late-night cocktail bar offers Italian libations, wine, beer and mouthwatering snacks. Stopping by the intimate space is a must.

What is Your It Girl Style?

Whether you're a Joan, a Jessica or a Jennifer -- your signature bag style should reflect your personality. The Stella McCartney Falabella Tote is edgy and glamorous yet still fun and feminine.

Meet June’s Best Sellers: Chanel, Goyard & Louis Vuitton

While it's no surprise Chanel and Louis Vuitton topped June's best sellers list, a new favorite is in town: Goyard. This French leather goods company has been around for well over a century and is even older than Louis Vuitton! We think reacquainting yourself with these three French brands is always a good idea. After all, each has a certain je n'ais se quoi! Do you have similar items in your closet? Consign now!

Gauguin’s Artwork, Tahitian Burgers & Bubble Masks!

Summer should be fun and we think this round up of awesomeness is just that! From something out-the-box for the boys to bubble masks, July is giving us all the entertainment we need. And speaking of entertainment, the must attend happening this month is the Gauguin exhibit at the Art Institute. His impressionistic early works paved the way for his Synthetist style and use of bright colors. Known for painting an eclectic variety of Tahitian beauties, you can stop by Seven Lions after the exhibit for a burger in his namesake and a Noa Noa cocktail which features the bright flavors of Polynesia. We have a feeling it is going to be difficult to top July!

Not available your size? Not to worry, shop our other iconic favorites.

Buy It Now: From the Runway to Your Front Door

When eDrop-Off opened its doors in 2004 we adopted eBay’s classic auction platform. After earning eBay’s titanium seller status and completing over 700,000 successful transactions we noticed a slight shift in the industry. More and more people wanted the option to make instant purchases, they didn’t want to wait for auctions to close. And while we still sell many of our items using the auction format, we’ve added the buy it now option to cater to a new type of client. We make it our mission to tailor our services to fit the needs of our consignors and buyers, and are so excited to offer this option that brings the runway straight to your door!Buy-It-Now
