Designers Auction off Exclusive Totes for CFDA

Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and eBay, for the third time, have collaborated to offer exclusive totes customized by 90 designers. The goal? “To raise awareness against counterfeit goods and celebrate original design.” Proceeds benefit the CFDA Foundation. I can bid to that!

Some of my #faves like Catherine Malandrino, alice + olivia and BCBGMAXAZRIA are in on the charitable action. If you’re in love with these #fab bags, act fast; auctions end Monday, March 25 at noon ET.

No room in your wallet for these pieces? Don’t be sad! Let ‘em inspire your next shopping trip at Forever 21 or H&M.
