And 90 CFDA members, from Prabal Gurung to Monique Lhuillier, agree, which is why they’ve teamed up with eBay for the third annual “You Can’t Fake Fashion” initiative, dedicated to fighting counterfeiting in the fashion industry.

Want to Earn Cash for Old Clothes? Stylist Brad Goreski Spills How

Unfortunately, we can’t call Brad Goreski our personal stylist like Jessica Alba and Christina Ricci can, but luckily he shared some of his stylish expertise with us. The fashionable man-about-town recently chatted with PEOPLE about his latest business venture.

The Bravo star has teamed up with eBay‘s “Chic Squad” to offer fashion advice on selling your stylish stuff via the online marketplace.

“People have this idea that it’s complicated [to sell items on eBay],” Goreski told PEOPLE. “It’s so easy though — it’s just four steps.”

First, describe your item with as much detail as possible; then take photos — including several detailed shots — in a well-lit area; third, research to see how other similar items are priced; and last, list it. Goreski said that top sellers include designer denim and shoes. “A pair of J Brand jeans sell something like every four to six seconds,” he revealed.

Before all of that, however, you have to clean your closet. “It’s important to allow new stuff to come in,” the Kate Spade brand stylist said. “I’m guilty of [holding onto unworn garments] — I’m like, ‘I wore this to blank and I want to hold onto it’ — and I think it’s about being honest with yourself and taking stock. I find it therapeutic.”

eBay is using its online auction powers for a good cause — a fashionable one, that is! The site is teaming up with various breast cancer organizations throughout October, featuring glam auction items from Fergie and other big stars during its eighth annual “Make it Pink” fundraiser.

Hosted by eBay Giving Works, eBay’s charitable arm, the event will allow shoppers to bid on different big-ticket items each week, such as the Christian Louboutin black suede lace-up boots and Marc Jacobs navy blue satin zipper dress worn by Fergie (above).

“Pink means something to many of us. You may have been touched by breast cancer,” the singer said in a statement. “I have, since both my mother and father are cancer survivors and I lost my grandmother to cancer three years ago. As a global ambassador for the Avon Foundation for Women, I am asking you to help make a difference for women, men and their families in the fight against breast cancer.”
