Friday Ebay bargains: review

white and pink rose mesh sweater, christmas sweater with deers
Hi!

If you are a consistent reader of my blog, you might have noticed that Fridays on my blog are dedicated to Ebay bargains I have found over the week! This week I decided to show you some of the Ebay bargains I have actually bought myself! 



Firstly, because I genuinely want to show you some of my latest buys and secondly, I don't want to sound like a fraud as I am posting (might I say popularising?) all of these Ebay items every week, but some of you might think that I am never buying them myself! Of course, don't get me wrong, I didn't buy all these items to prove a point, I bought them because I wanted to try them and add them to my wardrobe! :)
I would also want to add- every item I post on my Ebay bargain series is found by me, I am not paid in any way to promote them. All opinions are mine.

Basically this post is a review post, I will show the original Ebay picture of the product, my pictures & my opinion of the item (both its looks and quality)

So this is what I got:

Overall I am happy with this sweater- it more or less looks the same as on Ebay. The fit is quite good, considering it is available only in ONESIZE! The material feels very light weight and as I checked all the seams, the sweater seemed good quality!

Rose mesh sweater in pink- $16.30

pink rose mesh sweater review bought on Ebay
I think you instantly might see that the colors differentiate A LOT! I mean, I was supposed to receive a beige/light pink sweater. Instead I got a sweater in a pink-ish/ a bit coral color! I mean I get that a color can differentiate a bit (because of computer display settings), but I wouldn't expect that big of a change!
I was a bit bugged by the color at first, but I still like this sweater in this particular color as well, I mean, of course, it is not what I expected, but I believe I can make many lovely outfits with it as well. The quality is the same as the white sweater!

Double layer chiffon skirt in turquoise- $6.85

double chffon skirt in turqoise review bought on Ebay
I already had this type of skirt just in light pink color (my outfits here, here & here). As you might see, I had used the light pink skirt a lot, so, therefore, I wanted to broaden my horizons a bit with new colors, such as this skirt in turquoise blue. It was available in ONESIZE, which always concerns me, especially when buying skirts or pants, because I am relatively tall (175cm). To my relief the skirt fit! Though, of course, I wished it was a bit longer, because if there would be a breeze of wind, I might end up looking like Marilyn Monroe trying to hold the skirt down! :)

Double layer chiffon skirt in purple- $6.85

double chffon skirt in purple review bought on Ebay
I like this skirt a bit more than the one in turquoise, the color looks even more pretty in real life than in pictures! The quality of the skirt is average (not good or bad either). All the seams were sewn carefully, the waist band is pretty stretchy (therefore, no problems with the fit). The negative thing might be that the material is very synthetic, therefore a bit electric!

Long sleeve deer sweater- $11.99

I received this sweater right before Christmas & I was wearing it almost every day before & after Christmas! :)  The sweater is another ONESIZE item (seriosly, is it that hard to make items in sizes?), of course, I was worried about that, because you never know what to expect with one size items! Fortunately the sweater fit my body quite good & it even had a bit of a oversized effect, which I think looks nice. The quality on the other hand is not that great, when my sweater arrived, one seam was broken (thanks to my mom, everything was fixed easily), but when I order an item I expect it to be in perfect condition. I mean it is common sense, right?

So, this was a quick review of the items I got from Ebay (you can see my other Ebay bargain review posts here & here)

Did you like this review? What are your thoughts on ordering items on Ebay? Willing to share your experience? :)

~With love~

  3. Kudos to you Maddie! You did such an excellent job with the review! I like the fact you showed the first from ebay and the one taken by you. Lol, I admit that for each item there is a lot of difference! The second sweater is in coral, totally the opposite from the powder pink they showed. But I think that shade could suit you very well the same. I also like the purple skirt and the Xmas sweater. I am worried too when the garments come in one size. But in the last case the oversize effect must be very adorable!:) Kisses dear, have a lovely weekend! xo

  7. Great review, Maddie. I'm always hesitant when ordering items from Ebay, so it's really good to see that you are satisfied with the products and quality (even though that pink sweater turned out to be totally different.) Xo

  16. I love your eBay finds!!! Those rose sweaters are so pretty (but yes, that was a HUGE color difference). It's pretty, but if you really needed the other color it wouldn't have worked. Glad you will be able to use it. Love those skirts too! I hope you continue your eBay feature. You really find amazing things.

  30. Personally I love buying things from eBay. Although I can't say I have ever been brave enough to try out any clothing because of my very odd sizing (very tall and thin). I love this series though! It just goes to show that you can in fact buy some really awesome stuff if you just look hard enough. I might actually jump on now, haha. Definitely wanting to see more of these! :)
