eBay shopping list

With my workwear wardrobe my aim is always to be smart but yet also let in a little bit of personality.  I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing the same, plain items week on week without adding a little dose of colour or a jazzy little detail to an outfit.  I definitely own items I would only wear to work and likewise items that are simply too casual but I also have a lot of things that can be dressed up or dressed down and my efforts to condense my wardrobe have meant buying things that are more multifunctional and can be mixed and matched.  I recently went on a little bit of a hunt for two items that I thought would add a bit of an edge to my current repertoire; some statement, bib necklaces and a couple more blouses and dresses.  You all probably know by know that I'm a sucker for a peter pan collar so that was a detail high on my wishlist.  After doing some hunting I found everything I was looking for on eBay and I thought I'd share with you what I recently purchased (with the exception of the last one which is a bit of a 'want' item - I didn't want to go too mad....)

2. Necklace | £1.98
3. Necklace | £7.64
4. Tiger blouse | £6.44
6. Necklace | £1.59

My whole spree only came to just over £30 so I should definitely feel justified in considering snapping up the last item... right?  I love a good eBay bargain - have you bought anything recently?  Link me up if you've found any great sellers!

On a quick final note, I've been interviewing this week which has meant lots of suits and plain black court shoes so it cheered me up discovering Edith and Ella on Spartoo; they're a Danish footwear brand but their shoes are so colourful and unique, definitely going to snap up a pair for the summer (since I walked the dog this morning when it was -5 C I'm thinking peep toe is not an option for the moment...) Love this pair, a bit pricey but so retro!

  1. Love the necklaces and the shoes! GORGEOUS. Even if this Dorset weather doesn't make me feel like wearing fancy clothes. I've been teaching in wellies for the past two weeks and it doesn't look like that'll change until after easter holidays :(
    Lots of love!

  2. I love that black blouse. Is it see through or can you get away without a slip underneath? xx

  3. I bought that necklace a while ago! It looks lovely but I find that the black sections keep flipping over, so I ended up fiddling with it all day.

    The rest of it is stunning though.

  6. I wish I could wear all my favourite clothes to work, but since I work with seafood I'm too scared of ruining them D: I really love the peter pan dress and the sequin collared top! I tend to buy fun/unique stuff and forget to buy simple basics that I can just chuck on and not worry about.

  7. Love that green necklace and that tiger blouse! I definitely think that it's important to bring personality to your wardrobe, even if you have to abide by work dress code. Otherwise, how else do you make it fun!?

  8. I love both the dresses! I'm developing *cough - clearly already well developed* an addiction to collars!

  9. OMG I LOVE that last dress! I'm not usually one for such a bold print, but it is gorgeous and I love the contrasting white collar! Going to pop it in my watch list and perhaps purchase it pay day. Can't spend much at the moment as I just bought my fancy pants camera! Win some, lose some.
    Amazing that you got it all for just over £30 - I do love ebay! I recently bought some gorgeous wedge high tops off there, which you can see here - http://trinket-box.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/black-velvet-wedged-high-tops.html
