New blazer and faux fur coat

September 24th, 2010


Very simple outfit today. Wearing one of my jersey dresses I got on eBay. I found this white Cinole Boutique blazer (Canadian label) at a consignment store. It’s light weight and drapes nicely (yes blazers can drape too).   I wasn’t too thrilled about the shoulder pads initially and  I can’t exactly take them out because they are sewn inside the lining.  But now they don’t bother me so much.  I’m thinking of changing the buttons to make it more funky.  I also picked up this cute little no-name clutch there. These days when I don’t have to lug around a big diaper bag, I like to go with a small shoulder bag.

And you guys have heard me wanting a faux fur coat or vest badly for the fall.  Well….I found a vintage faux fur coat on eBay!  And it’s a white one which was what I wanted the most.   I was a little worried that since it’s white, it might have discolorations or stains.  But it turned out to be in excellent shape.   I love it.

Another wacky eBay buy

April 26th, 2010

My guy is always amazed at how the heck I find all these strange things on eBay. This is my latest wacky beauty gadget. This one is a face slimming contouring shaping contraption that you wear when you sleep that supposedly lifts your cheeks and keeps your jawline nice and tight. I don’t understand Japanese, but I think that’s the gist of it.  Who knows if this really works, I might give up after a week. But for $20, what the hell, lol.

Back to eBay

March 15th, 2010

I can’t believe how long I stayed away from eBay for, exactly two months! The itch somehow came back today and I had to browse. And I’m glad I did. The first things I looked were shoes (of course) and I found this lovely ebay store that sell trendy shoes for amazing prices. It’s definitely going on my favorites list. I’m so tempted to click on Buy it Now on all these.

Another pair of fingerless gloves

Searching for “fingerless gloves” on eBay yielded me this pair of short fingerless faux fur gloves 🙂

Shopping is soothing

Thank you darlings for all the well wishes! 😀 While taking care of a new born baby is so much work, I seem to have an unlimited amount of energy even though I’m only getting 4 hours of sleep everyday. I’m doing really well. So well that now I find myself to have even more time for window or real shopping online, lol. I just bought these things on eBay in a flurry. My guy joked that it didn’t take me long to get back to shopping. No rest for the wicked. Shopping is definitely a stress reliever for me right now.

A few more eBay buys

September 28th, 2009

Another waist-cinching retro-inspired belt and couple of other bags that I bought on eBay came today. When I was looking at the bags, the seller had them in multiple colors. Since the styles are so girlie, I purposely stayed away from black and brown and got them in light colors instead. The peach quilted bag is just a fun one to use on weekends. The light blue one is quite roomy, I’m thinking maybe I can even use it as a diaper bag, lol.

By the way, darlings, I’m going to have a new exciting giveaway for you this week. Stay tuned!

New ebay buys

September 24th, 2009

I’ve been really good NOT spending a copious amount of time on eBay bidding on everything in sight for a couple of months now. It hasn’t been that difficult, especially since I can’t wear any “normal” clothes. Well, I thought I’d treat myself. I got a few bags and a couple of belts. Yesterday, two of them arrived 🙂


I want more waist-cinching belts for once I get my waist back, especially retro-inspired ones like this butterfly buckle belt. I remember I had a bunch of elastic belts in my early teen years. Really wish I still had them.

Love this pink leather quilted bag! It’s super light and roomy. Seems like I’m really into pink handbags lately, lol.

Longing to wear normal clothes

August 21st, 2009

Nothing special about today’s outfit…I just wanted to show you guys my ever-expanding baby pump. All I can say is skirts with elastic bands are my friends. I’ve still got two months to go, I can’t imagine how much huger I’ll get, lol. Everyday I look at my old clothes in my closet wistfully.

Oh the dresses I got on eBay got here. They are in my old size (yep, I’m practical like that :). I can’t wait to wear them next year. I have no idea how they’ll look on me. They are supposed to look like this.
