When I have a Bad Mental Health Week or Day or Moment to be honest I retreat to my Happy Place. For some it’s bed and a bar of Chocolate, others opt for Ice-cream or beer, I have a friend who was a Vegi-Squarian for years and every time she had a Really bad day she would have a Big Mac (we started to call it her having a Big Mac Moment) so we all have our coping strategy, that one thing that makes you feel better after having a complete and utter inner meltdown.
Mine is EBay ,online shopping in general really, but EBay is my Favourite and this is why…
Mostly for designer clothing and over the years I have gotten very good at it and have Evan contemplated sharing my wisdom with others but it’s just more people to get their elbows in on my bargains (hate EBay snipers, you know who you are!!)
A few of my best buys I shall share with you now and one of my top tips for finding these types of clothes. But first I shall share with you the reason I have a passion for High Fashion.
The Quality is just a lot better and lasts a lot longer and that is my only reason really and here’s a few examples….
First Bargain: Gucci Boots Size 6 (I had these boots altered for £20 at my local cobbler as they wouldn’t zip up fully) EBay Price £150
I could buy the same style of boots for £40 in Primark but they would not last as long I have now had them 2 years and they are still perfect.
Top Tip for Boots; keep them in a bag and get them re-heeled often (costs about £3)
Second Bargain: Glitter Prada Shoes infant size 8 worn once and smelt new £8
And my most recent bargain was a brand new pair of Pink Suede Timberlands Never worn (they smelt new and hadn’t Evan been laced up) £24.99
They retail brand new at between £80-£120
So Designer on a Budget Can be done and I can share a few of my secrets along the way.
All of the mentioned brands you have heard of, but I got a Philip Plein T-Shirt for £12 and would of never heard of this fantastic designer if I hadn’t of learnt this trick.
I have gone back over Old America’s Next Top Models Episodes and when I hear a new designer I write it down then I hit my ebay account and go on a search (this is just one of the things I do)
…and there it was, a worn once dress by a runway designer (Christopher Kane) that retailed at over £500 and i won it for £24 and it was such high quality and would last a long time.
Don’t get me wrong I have a strange habit of night EBaying (when I wake up anxious and must have an idea) and then mini pie tins and sample paints and selfie lights have turned up and I have No clue why but 7/10 I have consciously gotten some great stuff
So i Dare You to Try it and instead of buying new for your Christmas Outfit this year why not try EBay and grab yourself a designer bargain.
