Ebay has easily become my favorite place to find trendy yet fashionable pieces that I would love to add to my wardrobe. I can find them at a deeply discounted price, and once the trend is over, I won’t feel badly about spending a few dollars on the items. Case in point, today’s awesome outfit.
I’ve enjoyed seeing tulle skirts enter the fashion scene (and pinterest pins). I’ve always wanted a tutu when I was little, and now that I’m older, I don’t think that would be appropriate to wear in public, unless it was Halloween or I lived in New York City. This skirt was purchased on eBay for only 8 dollars. It has an elastic top, which means it’s very comfortable and that you can easily place a belt over it. I chose not to mostly because it looked like a bit much. Less is more, my friends.
The bauble necklace is also from eBay. I purchased this months ago for only 3 dollars. I’d seen these beautiful necklaces in all of the magazines (and pinterest…ahem) and really wanted to give this trend a try. I wear this piece at least twice a week. It livens up any outfit, and even makes a tee look classy.
Speaking of t-shirts, this Beatles shirt was purchased at a flea market in NYC for 4 dollars. It was such a great find; the deal was 5 for 20 dollars, so I got 2 tees(this one and another one with a picture of John Lennon) and my husband got 3 shirts.
The shoes are an old favorite that I’ve had for 7 years. Yup, 7 years. They are a classic black strappy heel and I’ve worn these to Vegas, clubbing in Atlantic City, and to numerous weddings. They are the best dancing shoes I’ve ever had, and what better shoe to pair with a tulle shirt? This outfit was made for dancing and having all kinds of fun!
What do you think of the tulle skirt trend?
