Flower Bomb
















Dress- eBay, Bag- Vintage, Shoes and Jewellery - Primark, Jacket - H+M

Hello Lovelies!

I decided to inject a burst of colour onto my blog to brighten up the grey days we've been having lately. This dress was the very first thing I bought on eBay about 5 years ago. I remember the thrill of watching the auction end, wondering if I was going to clinch the item in the final seconds. I don't think I'd even heard of Paypal, as I remember paying by cheque! It was this dress that started my love for eBay, the weird and wonderful auction website where you can find almost everything and anything in the world. The past 5 years I have bought and sold hundreds of things. It's like a online jumble sale where you never really know what you are going to receive in the post. Some things are hits, others misses, but it's the unexpectedness that I love.

  28. Everyone should have a good floral dress in their wardrobe, but the thing I love most is how you've broken it up with the little leather jacket.
    Nice pairing :)
