eBay My Wardrobe

14 May

Apologies to those who follow my blog and are therefore wondering whether I have infact given up. Not so. However, the babe has been getting up for three hours in the middle of the night for the last week so my usual blog time has been taken up with blessed sleep. One can only hope that the last of her teeth are almost through and I can go back to a more regular blog and a more sorted wardrobe.

Whilst in the stream lining phase of my wardrobe sort I have sold a number of items on eBay. I do this a lot and whilst second hand isn’t everyones cup of tea I find it a really great way of recycling stuff that is loads better than just throwing things out. (It also enables me to continue fuelling my shopping habit by recouping some of my spend…). One of my good mates has taken to acquiring items from my wardrobe via eBay, her reasoning being that if she goes via an auction she will pay what the item is actually worth on the open market rather than having the embarrassing “how much?” chat between friends. Whatever works for her!

I never sell without also aquiring new stuff unfortunately. eBay selling almost always becomes eBay buying as once i’m on the site I find it has an addictive effect on me. Must find new shoes, bag, jacket etc etc. I have this week sold an old pair of Jimmy Choo flats that were seldom worn and in excellent condition and replaced them with a pair of pink neon Dior flats that will fit right into my summer wardrobe. I don’t mind second hand designer.

The Choo’s:

And the new pink Dior’s:

I am starting to become aware that my blog is split personality. One day style related, the next very much a mummy blog. Maybe I need to consider splitting the two or maybe it’s provides variation for my meagre readership!
