eBay Babe: Street Fashion















































Images by Prutha Raithatha

Skirt Dress: Future Classics; Belt: Linea Pelle; Bag: Costume National; Shirt: Gypsy; Shoes: Modern Vintage; Bangle: Thrift Store

Bumped into the lovely Bre right below my apartment. I instantly spotted her cool skirt dress with the vintage looking belt and had to stop her. Apart from posing for me quite patiently she ended up being quite a resource too. We got talking and I am telling you people, this girl knows her ebay. She gave me all sorts of ideas about shopping online and finding stuff that in the store maybe way too expensive. I am still waiting for her to send me links to all the sellers on ebay she follows… once I get them, I’m gonna try to make my first ebay purchase!! [Yes, you know I don’t like shopping online. But to save some of that money I don’t have, I shall attempt it…Why not right?]

Bre is a writer and was a completely delightful encounter.

    Ebay.co.uk is also a great place to find discounted clothing from international designers, like Westwood, Dries Van Noten or even All Saints.

  26. Very cute dress! I love how the accessories go so well with it too.

    I was nervous when I first made a bid on eBay too, but it's *really* worth it. I've found the most amazing buys for a fraction of their original cost. You just have to know your brands and size very well, esp. since often you can't return something due to it being the wrong size. Good luck!
