I fell off the wagon...

The ebay wagon. I used to live and breathe Ebay for anything to finding a dress from Victoria's Secret that I loved years ago to an inexpensive silk top. Surprisingly enough, since Ebay can be kind of a gamble, I have always been happy with the things I have purchased. AND I sold my wedding dress on there, for $500, which is only $300 less than what I paid for it.
The problem is, for me, Ebay is like a treasure hunt. It's the thrill of the chase-so sometimes I get kind of obsessed and spend wayyyy too much time on there when I am looking for something. This is mostly why I cut myself off. But I'm back, this is what I got:

 A 100% silk Alice+Olivia maxi dress...for $30!!! Alice and Olivia dresses usually retail for upwards of $200. This was pre-owned, but no signs of wear that I notice-probably was only worn once or twice!! It's so light and airy, which is perfect for summer.
And.....I got a white (it's actually ivory) blazer!! This picture doesn't do it justice. It fits perfectly, and I love it...and it cost me........get ready......$4!!!!! With $5 shipping...a total of $9. I could not be happier. When it comes to Ebay, I would say it's great, as long as you don't spend a lot of money. Since most sellers don't take returns, you don't want to risk too much. I am super glad I took these risks though-so worth it!!

I love that dress! It is beautiful! Maybe I'll start looking on Ebay too if that's what's on there.

Ahh! Maxi dress heaven! It's really is beautiful, I'm looking into getting a yellow dress myself. Your whole outfit with the ivory blazer is fab. Loves it.
