Cheap Friday- Ebay review

Hi!

For a month, every Friday I posted my Ebay bargain posts, don't worry I am going to be continuing that, but for once in a while I will make a post about my Ebay buys! I have decided to create this post as a review, because a lot of time Ebay can be like buying a cat in the bag, you never know with what you will end up!
Therefore, I will post the original photo that was on Ebay, as well as my photos and a short review of whether the items were as described!

Lately I have been really liking fringed bagss, therefore, when I saw this bag for only less than 10 bucks I was really happy! The quality is not that bad either, though, when I first opened the package, the smell was a bit horrifying, but now it has aired out! If we compare the photos, you can se that more or less the does look like in the original photo! The only difference I can see: ar the fringes, in the photo they seem so straights and polished, but in real life they are a bit wavy and messy, but I gues they will straighten a bit with time!

Overall I would give this bag a solid 4/5

I have already ordered a watch like this before (see here), but this time I wanted to buy it in a more solid color and as I was torn between black and white, I got them both! Because what are $2 for a watch, right? I am really happy with these watches, as the last one I got, I think in January or so, is still working and has not ever broken! I think this a true bargain as the price is so appealing and the quality definitely beats the price! And I do think that they look more expensive than 2$!
Overall I give these watches 5/5

Floral blazer

Hi!

Today I have another outfit post prepared for you! :) First I have to acknowledge my mom for taking these photos, because this is only the second time she has been taking photos for me and I know how challenging it is for her! Because photography is not her thing, yet she is willing to help me out, as at the moment I had nobody else who could take my outfit photos instead! :)
Second I'd like to thank Choies for sending me this wonderful blazer! I really, really like it, because it is made of a really soft and pleasent material! And as I am a big sucker for floral print, this was a perfect match! The quality is really great and I love the attention to the details (just look at those cute anchor buttons!).

Photography- nature (country life)

Hi!

Today is the last day of my 2 week vacation! :( So, yeah tomorrow it's back to job and a week later, back to University! I am a bit sad about it, because it means that summer is definitely coming to an end and there are not anymore unfavorable seasons for me than fall and winter!
But as per today, I would like to show you some photos I took over my vacation, I know you might think of this blog more as a fashion blog, but I would like to think it is a fashion and photograpy blog as well, even though I don't post "my photography" photos very often!

This is how I spent a lot of time of my vacation: sunbathing, reading Games Of Thrones, listening to music! :)

Summer rain

Hi! :)

Today I'd like to show you another outfit by me! These photos were really challenging to take, because just as me and my boyfriend were in the middle of taking my outfit photos it's started pouring rain! You might actually see it in some of my photos!
Also I'd like to say a big thank you to Choies for sending me a lot of nice items, including this cute and whimsical skirt! :) As much as I love how the skirt looks on me, I wish it could have been in bigger size (it was actually ONE SIZE item), so always be careful while ordering bottoms online!
I chose to pair this skirt with striped shirt & a big black hat, my boyfriend at first laughed at me and said I look like a girl from Austria or Germany who has gone yodeling (no offence!) :D, but then he got used to and said it looks nice, haha, but still, such a great confidence "boost". :D

Cheap Friday- Ebay bargains #4

Hi lovelies! :)

Ebay bargains, cheap clothes on Ebay, lion earrings, bib statement necklace, tiger swimsuit, safari outfit, tote bag, neon wedges
1// 2//3// 4// 5// 

Another Friday and I have another Ebay post prepared for you! :)

Yeah, I know, I know it is practically almost Fall already, but I am putting summery items on my wishlist, right? Well, the moment I saw this swimsuit, I was in love. So screw all my intentions of making a Fall wishlist, I had to show you this wonderful piece! I haven't worn a one piece swimsuit since, I don't know, I was 5, but this definitely makes me rethink my swimsuit choices! :) To make this wishlist in a more of safari theme, I choose these lion earrings, which cost only 1.99$, how cheap is that? I have seen this lion themed trend all around the Internet, so I was very happy when I found these ones for such an affordable price! :)

Do you like my bargains? Which is your favorite? :)

Geometrical

Hey!

Today is another outfit of the day for you! The moment I saw both the skirt and the blouse, I knew they were a perfect match! And when I received them I was really happy and eager to try them on! I really, really like the top & the fit is really great as well, but I wish I could say that about the skirt, I think it looks more or less ok in the photos, but I don't think I will wear it much in real life, because for me it is way, way too short! I was disappointed in that, because I really like the print of this skirt! :/
Anyways, be careful when you order bottoms in online shops, I would recommend to but at least one size bigger!
