Stay stay stay I’ve been loving you for quite some time time time

Dress – Matalan, Shirt and Bracelet – eBay, Shoes – Birdy’s Boutique, Bag – Charity Shop, Hat – Charity Shop

I am loving this dress from Matalan at the moment. In fact I am loving Matalan full stop! It has some really lovely (not to mention affordable!) things in right now.

I got this shirt off eBay (it is Topshop whoop) and when it arrived the lovely lady who sent it to me also included three bracelets! Super cute ones! It totally made my day – the little things really do don’t they?

I got these shoes from Birdy’s Boutique (which I love love love). They sell the cutest things at very affordable prices. These gorgeous suede shoes were just £16.99.

So I picked this bag up today for £1.99 at my local charity shop and also managed to volunteer myself to work there on Friday afternoons. This is very dangerous as I will get first look at all new clothes and I am not sure I can restrain myself from buying half of it.

I also picked up this hat from another charity shop for just £2 today which is why I have my “I found a bargain face” on.

And I never saw you coming, and I’ll never be the same

I recently discovered a little charity shop near me that has the most wonderful things in and (I guess because a lot of people don’t know about it) is fantastically well priced. I feel like I bought half the place and I already can’t wait to go back! This is one of my favourite finds; I found it for just £2! Vintage too! It was part of a two-piece so look out for the top (also £2) in future posts.

As a side note the weather today was utterly miserable, I had to wait for it to (briefly) stop raining so I could run out and take a few photos. If Christmas wasn’t coming up I would have a serious case of the winter blues coming on.

My name is Elizabeth and I am addicted to eBay.

Admitting you have a problem is meant to be the first step. I have a real problem with eBay. It is probably verging on the ‘in need of an intervention’ side of addictions.

I won’t can’t stop though.

I just really do love searching for those hidden gems. It is almost as good as charity shop or car boot sale shopping. In some ways even better because I can do it at 2 am in bed in my pyjamas. I just love to bid as well. I love the adrenaline rush you get in that very last minute, the desperate praying to the eBay God’s that you don’t get outbid and then the intense satisfaction (occasionally mixed with guilt – whoops) when you win. Oh and not to mention the item arriving in the post. Post makes me too happy, parcels actually make my heart swell. I should probably mention this to a doctor or something, it can’t be normal.

Anyway whether it is someone’s preloved top they are selling for some extra cash or an actual eBay shop selling brand spanking new dresses it almost doesn’t matter now. It is on ebay therefore it is fair game for me.

So this is one of my latest additions! It is from an eBay shop called love2wear and it was £5.99. Yes £5.99. I think the print is just so cutesy and sweet but because it has houses and buildings (and grown-up people have such things) I feel grown up in it (I know I am so not normal).

Also I am flat hunting and I want to wear this dress to all my viewings. I like to think I will do cute things like this but in reality I will over sleep, pick something off my floordrobe or even worse just shove a coat over my pyjamas and run out of the door. Yes I do that sometimes. In my defence pyjamas are ridiculously comfy and I like to sleep. A lot.
