Glitter Ball.











Dress, Belt & Jewellery - All Vintage (Sorry!)
Shoes - Irregular Choice
Bag - H&M


Hello Loves

A shiny post for you all today! I looooove this vintage dress that I won on eBay last week for ... wait for it... 99p! This is exactly why I love eBay. I always manage to find lovely, cheap items, that about 87% of the time, turn out great! This dress was photographed really badly, and poorly described, but I saw some potential and for 99p, I wasn't worried. Luckily, it didn't turn out to be a potato sack and to my delight, I didn't even know it had glitter paisley detailing until I opened the package! I'd say it's definitely worth the scavenge through the hundreds of items listed on eBay. You never know what you will find and I'm always pleasantly surprised! 

Also, funny story of the week for you all. Managed to embarrass myself completely one day at uni this week. I saw my friend DeeDee sitting with her back to me. I instantly recognised her black, wavy hair, her green, fluffy parka jacket and her distinctive cup of coffee she's always drinking from. I haven't seen DeeDee since we lived together in Denmark and so finally, after a good few months of being seperated, we were finally going to be reunited. I run right up behind the girl, jump on her, scream in her face and give her a massive hug!!....

Only to discover that the girl I 'attacked' wasn't DeeDee. And safe to say, I was mortified...


Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

More soon, including some exciting ASOS news!

  3. Beautiful pattern on this dress! I like the off-shoulder style as well.
    It's nice to shop on eBay, but so good if you want to sell something there ;)
