Bargain beauty

Me and Ebay have an on off sort of relationship sometimes we can go for months without getting together then at other times i feel like everything I'm buying is from there. At the moment we are most definitely on! Ive got quite a few craft bits from Ebay recently and the other day while i was having a browse i spotted a Simply Be dress new with tags in my size. Now this wasn't just any dress it was the beautiful polkadot one i had been drooling over for months and no one had bid! I put in it my watch list and after a tense few minutes i won the dress for a bargain price of £17.01 plus postage.

P1013187

I love this dress it's original price was £69 so i really did get a great deal! I wore this to go shopping at the weekend i felt great in it and i loved how swishy the skirt part of the dress was. The top part of the dress is a thick stretch material and the skirt is a lined with the polkadot chiffon over the top. There is a tie to bring the waist in a little more and the top of the skirt part at the back is elasticated so you could get away with a smaller size in this if you are between sizes.

I wore the dress with some thick black tights and my purple snood which was also from Ebay some time ago. While i was out a girl came over to say how she liked my look which was so nice it left a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

I love this dress and would recommend it to anyone looking for a feel good dress as it makes you feel amazing. I have seen a few of these on Ebay in the past so I'm sure you could find it on there, as it's no longer on the Simply Be website. 
Have you got any Ebay bargains recently?

  5. Gorgeous dress! I tend to just sell on eBay now and avoid buying. Come to think of it, I don't actually think I've ever bought clothes on there, only shoes (of course!)

  9. Wow! What a bargain! You look absolutely fantastic! That dress is seriously gorgeous. I bet you'll be wearing that one for years and years.

    I'm the same with eBay. I can go months without using it, and all of a sudden I sell or buy loads of things all at once. xx
