Hey there! I didn’t realize how long it has been since my last blog post! Between all the holidays and a week long trip to Jamaica, I had a hard time getting actual content up. 2019 Resolution? Be more consistent with my blog – among many other things. For my first blog post of 2019, I wanted to share a new way of online shopping that I’ve recently discovered and loved. Shopping eBay fashion! When I was preparing for our trip to Jamaica, it was kind of difficult shopping for summer pieces in the middle of winter where I normally shop. I also didn’t want to spend a fortune on a whole new summer wardrobe because we still had Christmas to shop for. I was also still in winter mode, so if I was going to splurge on clothing, it would’ve been a teddy coat or a pair of new boots. Anyway, I remembered reading about eBay fashion and had actually been hearing more and more about it, so I checked it out and loved it! The dress I’m wearing above was on Revolve for $168. I loved it and searched for the exact dress on eBay and I purchased it for $35! What! It was in perfect condition. I used to be unsure of eBay because the bidding process seemed to be more trouble than it’s worth, but I didn’t realize you can just buy most items. Of course, it’s a little trickier because you’re exact size may not be available, but it never hurts to look! eBay is a good go to on items you may not wear a ton or need for a special occasion and you may not want to splurge on the original site – especially good for pricier brands like Free People and Tularosa. Most items are brand new or new with tags which is even better. I linked a few examples below of items that I found on eBay for a fraction of the original price!
By the way, this hat is the best straw hat! It holds its shape and doesn’t flop. Perfect for spring & summer!
Tips for shopping eBay
- Be sure that the pictures are authentic from the seller. Look for detailed photos of the items. If pictures are stock photos, be extra careful to read seller’s ratings.
- Always look at the seller’s star ratings and reviews. You’ll feel more comfortable purchasing from seller’s with good customer experiences.
- If buying designer items, look for authenticity cards!
- Search specifically. Look at the original item description and search it on eBay. There’s also a lot of filters that can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
