Ebay chat and winner announcements

I am in the throes of an eBay phase at the moment. It all started because I couldn't sleep one night so I decided to waste time online. And here we are, a couple of happy purchases down.

I am a specific shopper, only hunting for used Sass & Bide - an Australian designer duo I have always had a thing for since I bought their jeans in the early 2000's. I have managed to secure some absolute bargains and this top, as seen below, is one of them.

It's difficult to describe. Black jersey material, double layered, with rose gold details creating a zigzag pattern and a pronounced V at the front.

Normally their stuff retails somewhere near ££££ridiculous so I was pretty pleased with this...

FYI: That V can fall pretty low so for daytime we put a little Topshop body underneath!







Top: Sass & Bide
Jeans: Cheap Monday
Shoes: Guess
Bag: Celine
Sunglasses: RayBan (I have been asked about the model number and all the details have rubbed off but I think it's these - Link!)

This top is one of those one-off items but I am keen to know from any of you if you have uncovered some great finds recently - particularly if you know the eBay seller has stock! Let us know!

Hamsa giveaway!

...and finally I can announce the winner of the Hamsa necklace giveaway.

I always think giveaways are going to be so simple and straightforward but the reality is that I look over all the comments, make sure there are no duplicates and then do the random.org thing. It's always more work than I thought.

Anyway, the winner is.....

jolie116

Congratulations! Email me your details at buynowbloglater@gmail.com and I will forward them on to Elisabeth, the store owner who will ship it out to you.

Thanks to everyone for taking part - I think I have ruined the purity of the "enter me" contest for many...that's my dirty mind for you :) Happy Friday!

  23. Lovely top! I like the mix of colours. I'm not the biggest ebayer but yesterday I bagged myself a gorgeous Coast cocktail dress for £35 rather than £145, brand new- it was bought for a bridesmaid, who then couldn't make the wedding. It's beautiful, and just what I was looking for after days of scouring the internet for a dress for my Grad ball which I adored and wouldn't break the bank. Hooray for ebay!!
