Latest Ebay buys!!

My latest Ebay purchases came in the post yesterday and I'm soo pleased with both-especially as they fit well-thats the only downside to buying online!!

It has the trademark Leonard tropical flowering and colours and is in exquisite condition. It has gorgeous sleeves and is made in a silk jersey, with Leonard printed randomly over the material. It is short, so I will wear it with either ankle length leggings and heels, or opaque thick tights or with trousers and then loosely belted to give it a tunic feel!!

This is a vintage 70s Trina Lewis Marjon Couture dress, which I got for less than £10-a steal, I think!! It is in excellent condition and I wanted a red dress and a prom style, so a vintage bargain that had to be snapped up!! I said a little while ago I wasn't going to buy from Ebay for a while-that so went out the window!!! Never publicly announce something you intend to do-from my experience the exact opposite happened and on more than one occasion!! But to be fair too, I don't regret any of the Ebay buys (about 4 in the last month!) so thats a good thing too!!

What great deals!! Did you find these on com or uk ebay? Love them both and cant wait to see you wear them. Hope you have a great weekend Sharon!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Silje-thanks so much for your lovely comment!! They were both UK sellers (Ebay.co.uk)-I'm wary about buying from overseas, because I sold something to a foreign buyer and the parcel is lost in their country somewhere, so I wouldn't want that to happen to me. have a great weekend too, Silje!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi cupcakes and cashmere-thanks for your lovely comment, haha you know by now I really love florals!!Once you know your true size, it does make it easier to buy online, but there is a risk-I've been lucky!!

fashion herald said...

total steals, and you're totally right, anytime you pronounce something you're going to renege, for sure!

atelier said...

that brilliant red is amazing

Alice @Ogni cosa bella è viola said...

Hi Sharon, ebay is a great opportunity, but i guess you are a natural born fashion finder and your choices are always lovely and full of fashion sense. Your pics are the best proof that isn't enought bankrupting to be stylish, if you don't create your personal mark in style as you, Sharon.
The red dress is full of suggestions and is a great purchase.
Have a great weekend.

Alice

P.S. Finally i post the white Michael Kors tux! Hope reading from you about.

Savvy Gal said...

Danz said...

Hey Sharon! Both dresses look really wonderful...I can't wait to see them on you!

I was an ebay-holic once but I haven't had much money to purchase anything recently. Hopefully, I'll get some soon and I can find some cool things like you did!

Take care and I hope you have a lovely weekend dear :)
