You may know by now that I'm an avid eBay bidder! It is a passion of mine to scroll through the endless listings in search for a bargain or two. Whether it's dresses or jewellery, I'm forever saving items to my 'Watch' list. I can't quite describe what it's like when an eBay parcel arrives at my door; It's almost like experiencing shopping russian roulette, if that is even possible? I guess what I'm trying to say is that sometimes items I've bought have looked completely different from their online pictures, from different colour and shape, and so when a parcel arrives, there can be a slight unknown aspect. The small risk involved is all part of the fun though!
For example, here is a dress I recently purchased from eBay for a steal of a deal - £7! I was positively smiling from ear to ear when I unwrapped it. I clearly remember the dress had been poorly photographed and looked like it was a dark red colour, far from the vibrant pink which shone through the packaging whilst I was opening it. If this dress had been photographed well, the beautiful print would have surely enticed many hungry bidders, and I probably wouldn't have won. However, maybe I shouldn't complain too much about poorly photographed items, as they are usually the ones that turn out to be the real gems.
