Shiny pink silk | Ebay finds

Sunday, 7 August 2016

So way way back in time i used to do these eBay type posts and i really enjoyed making them and you guys seemed to enjoy reading them so for todays post i thought i would bring them back! This is just a few things i have seen over on good old eBay and wanted to share with you all! Do let me know in the comments if you would like these posts to become a regular thing and which item from this section is your favourite! 

Pink slip dress - Okay so this beaut of a dress is only £4 guys. £4. I literally added it to my cart so quick when i saw it! I think it would look perfect with a white tee underneath (you know that trend thats making its rounds at the moment!) and some thigh boots. Ahhhh, i can't wait for this to arrive!

Biker jacket - So i'm sure you've all seen THAT zara jacket which everyone and their mum has in at leas one colour. This is an exact copy of that one (in all the colours the zara one is in too!) and i may have to now jump on that bandwagon because lets be real, zara aint worth the money and this is only £25 which is pretty darn good for a biker jacket! Now the question is whether to go for pink or blue......

Embroidered halter top - This is a very instagram-esque top and again, is a complete bargain at £4. Its probably for the more daring because of the sheerness but would look amazing on a night out or even with a checked shirt thrown over the top and some casual boyfriend jeans. Doesn't that just sound like the perfect glam/casual combo?! 

Sheer maxi skirt - I don't even think i need to say anything about this gorgeous skirt. Just look at it. LOOK AT IT. 

Glittery cross over bralet - This doesn't seem to be very inline with the theme of the rest of my items in this post but when i spotted it on eBay i was just so drawn to it i had to feature it! I have a thing for pretty bralettes and bras (the one plus of having small boobs) and i think this one is super fun and can be worn a ton of ways. 

Kate Spade purse for £30/$40

Thursday, 4 August 2016

Yes, this is another 'china buys' post. I like china things okay. Poor person probs. 

This one is a Kate Spade replica purse. I didn't get this one off my usual AliExpress though. Oh no, this china shopping has got to a whole new level of extreme. I got it from a site called TaoBaoFocus, which is basically a way to order things to the UK from TaoBao (which is a major china domestic shipping site on which everything is dirt cheap). So i saw this purse, was like yes please, added it to my cart. Now, the TaoBaoFocus way of ordering things is a little complicated but don't fret. You pay an initial payment for the item to be shipped to their warehouse. They then take photos of it, you can see these pictures on your order page and then if you are happy with the item and its the correct colour etc. you then make a second payment for shipping. There are multiple shipping =options depending on how fast you want it and you can also elect to minimise the packaging of your item to save on shipping. Once shipped, it is fully trackable and mine arrived in exactly a week from the date of shipping which is so good considering i chose the cheapest air mail option! 

Overall, i really like the TaoBaoFocus shipping service! I contacted the team a few times on their online chat as i got a bit confused during the whole ordering process (I'm not used to so may steps!) and they were really helpful. Even with my dumb questions! 

The wallet is my new favourite thing. I'm not 100% sure if its real leather but for this price i really can't complain. The wallet i believe was $25 and shipping was $15 which isn't too bad! The original purse price does include a service fee but this isn't much at all! I'm really impressed with the overall quality and it looks literally identical to the real ones. IDENTICAL. The inside is also identical (which i was going to photograph but didn't want to reveal all my banking details to the interwebz soz) but let me assure you, it is a beaut. 

Heres a link to the original if you would like to see the inside layout - is that the correct way to say the inside of a purse?! 

So to summarise, i love it. Ive had my ted baker purse for years and it is definitely in need of a refresh! 

Slip up

Wednesday, 3 August 2016

White crop top - Ebay
Slip dress & choker - Aliexpress
Boots - Primark 

The slip dress and t shirt trend (does it have an official name?!) is everywhere right now. Ive seen so many combos in high street stores and my inspiration for them came from the one and only Kendall Jenner who i saw rocking a cream one here. And then i was sold. Of course i got the khaki version because duh its my favourite colour to wear. You will soon see this over my upcoming outfit posts aha! Mine is in a size L for reference to ensure that it was long enough! Its slightly oversized on me but i do actually quite like the fit of it overall! 

Over the limit

Top - Forever 21
Skirt - Boohoo/Ebay
Boots - Aliexpress

Simple boho outfit for me today! These boots are my absolute favourite and although you can't really see int these pictures (damn you lighting!) they are a beautiful khaki green colour. Ive had them for coming up two years now and i can definitely say that they are my most worn, most loved boots by far! I love that they add some colour because all i wear is black. And sometimes white. Monochrome gal 4 lyf.

The skirt, belt and top are all relatively new so should still be in stores if you fancy the look of anything! I have a slight gripe with off the shoulder tops because of the fact that you have to wear a strapless bra, or no bra, with them. I HAVE SO MANY PRETTY BRAS AND I CANT WEAR THEM WTH YOU. But thats probably just problems of someone with a teeny obsession with underwear and lingerie.
