Recently I've upgraded the look of my blog to look a little neater and a little more "me". One thing I did while updating is go back and tag all of my old post, I actually still have 50ish left to tag, it's exhausting y'all! But it gave me a really good idea of what I'm accomplishing on the blog besides just giving my friends a way to keep up, my reader numbers indicate that there are plenty of people I don't know IRL reading - hey y'all!
So tagging my posts gave me an idea of what this blog is about and an idea on how I can better direct my posts moving forward rather than jumping all over the place. So this is basically a lifestyle blog with an emphasis on fashion and fun activities. So what better way to focus on some fashion than by sharing it with some of you. I recently had a coworker ask me about ebay, because she had never shopped on there before. WHAAAAATTTT?!?!?!?!
So, if you don't shop on ebay you really should,especially if there's a particular brand you are loyal to or looking for a particular sold out item. I grew up in a household where everything was new to us but really there's nothing wrong with someone else's gently used treasures. Often you can find things in great condition because the prior owner had buyer's remorse, changed sizes, is cleaning out their closet, needs money or is a professional ebayer. I've noticed though that my best finds have come from other fashion enthusiast but from time to time I do find things I like the professionals are selling. In no particular order my top 5 favorite ebay finds are:
1. The Gucci Blanket
2. Louis Vuitton Purse
3. Lilly Pulitzer Drama Queen Elsa top
4. Hello Kitty for Forever 21 jewelry
5. J Crew Chandelier Sweatshirt
I had Shaun snap this quickly this morning, not my greatest pic but not my worst. I've been sick this week and it was 11 degree this morning. Mostly I was excited to be wearing a warm AND cute top.
Since this top is in fact sold out on the J Crew site I recommend searching on ebay if you need one too. I had a search saved with alerts and it took about two weeks for this one to become available, not bad. And for the record I was on the prowl for this before Mindy wore it; but Mindy did increase my desire! Here's the stock photo and it on Mindy for a better look:
Let me know if you have a favorite fashion find!
