“I'm really into vintage Chanel jewelry right now, thanks to its timeless elegance. But since most people don't know the ins-and-outs of eBay auctions, I'll add a Tory Burch Pom Pom Hat and a pair of rugged Sorel boots to my list. They're just what the doctor ordered for my first-ever ski trip to Vail this February!”

Tory Burch Pom Pom Hat, $225, available at ToryBurch.com.
Sorel Kate the Great Boots, $200, available at Zappos.com.
