#eBayFinds 5

Missguided Crop Top £2 | Topshop Blouse £3.50

I'm actually shocked I'm still writing these posts. I think this is the longest I've ever kept up with something so you should all be proud of me (even if it did take a while to get up and running!). If you're confused what I'm even talking about you can catch up with the previous posts HEREHEREHERE and HERE. A bit of a mixed bag this week, 2 items as usual but with 1 being from eBay and 1 being from a selling site like last week.

Missguided Crop Top £2, brand new with tags. Price: £2 Delivery: None
I actually bought the skirt to this about a week before I saw this on my Facebook feed. This was from the same girl that I bought the skirt from last week, I bought a lot from her. I have never ordered/worn a co-ord because I genuinely cannot pull them off to save my life but she wanted so little for the top I thought I'd get it anyway. I tried it on once, I couldn't even do it up over my boobs. I've never tried again.

On a completely different note, Missguided sizes are soooo strange! I admittedly have put on a fair bit of weight recently but a few months ago I ordered a skirt which was a size 6; as I would usually buy. It wasn't even close to fitting. I ordered an 8 and it fits but it's tight. I couldn't cope with ordering a 10, not that there is anything wrong with being a size 10 but how can someone fit in a size 4 pair of jeans from Topshop and need a size 10 skirt from a different website?! Has anyone else found their sizing weird?! Would love to know! Back to the blog post...

Topshop Blouse, worn. Price: £3.50 Delivery: £4
I paid too much for this item. For starters, it's over 2 years worth of seasons out of date. I was sucked in to a eBay war, as usual. I'm competitive, what can I say?! Secondly, I'm an avid eBayer. I know how much it costs to post a flimsy little blouse and I can tell you right now it isn't £4. If you really tried you cost post it in a letter, it would even cost £1 but hey ho it could be an honest mistake. 

Nevertheless I'm the stupid one that paid this amount of money and luckily I really love the top. It's a bit tight on my shoulders but not so much that I can't wear it. It's very see-through so I have to wear something underneath which, if I'm honest, I hate the look of. But it's a really lovely summery top that I think I will get a fair bit of wear out of and then I could just sell it on again to make some of my money back. Walaaah!

Have you got any #eBayFinds? Tweet me with pictures! Would love to see them :)

  1. eBay is my saviour sometimes! I mean, who doesn't want to buy brand new with tags clothing for 99p? I'm such a cheapskate, but I love it.

  4. I absolutely hate Missguided sizes too. I remember last year buying a jumpsuit for my holiday and both sizes 10 and 12 wouldn't go over my boobs. It made me too depressed to even contemplate a 14 :( and I've not attempted buying a jumpsuit again haha.
    That blouse is so cute though!!
