I’m not a fashionista by any means but my new office look was such a bargain I just had to blog about it. After 8 months of hardcore saving followed by the first 2 months of paying off our loan I have been pretty much on a personal spending ban. I have bought a few things here and there but hardly bought any new clothes in that time. It’s quite demoralising wearing the same things to work on a rotation so I have treated myself to some well-deserved clothes. Where from? eBay of course!
The beautiful deer bib necklace is my star buy. I actually found it on Etsy for £10 but after looking on eBay I found that a seller in China stocks them for just £1.79! Even though I was buzzing at the find I was a little disheartened to discover that not all Etsy sellers are selling ‘handmade, vintage or unique factory-manufactured’ and are in fact selling cheap things from China. So watch out! Always do a bit more research on an item from Etsy.
The skater skirt dress cost just under £8 from a cheap eBay shop after doing a search for ‘skater dress’. It comes in many different colours from which I chose teal to compliment my new ginger hair colour. By the end of the day I noticed a few bobbles on areas that had rubbed against my handbag and cardigan so maybe it won’t look new for very long. This could make the purchase false economy, but I shall see how it goes.
I’m good at making choices that are false economy because cheap prices make me feel a purchase is justifiable. I have bought several pairs of cheap army boots over the last few years spending no more than £25 at a time and, alas, each fell apart after a few months. This time I invested a bit more money and got these Rocket Dog thunder boots for a great price of £40, again from eBay, and I am in LOVE. They are sturdy, very comfortable for my wide feet and perfect for the wetter autumn season.
What do you think of my outfit post debut?
