Having worked for luxury designer brands, it’s no surprise that Shana Honeyman has a well-developed sense of style. The OMG moment lies in how — and where — she hones the look of her dreams: eBay.

See how she does it (and check out some of her gorgeous designer finds) in the video above. Then put her methods to work for yourself by visiting eBay and searching for the fashions and accessories you’ve been dreaming about.
