PRETTY IN PAISLEY

Don't you just love Ebay, I can spend hours browsing the dresses people are selling to see if they have one for me. The only thing that can put a dampner on it is if you get stuck in a bidding war - just because someone else is bidding on something you have a minor interest in, you end up bidding like a madwoman, yelling "You're not gonna beat me, you bitch!" at your computer. Then your stuck with a sequin dress that is horrible that you're never going to wear and that you have paid way to much for.

Anyway, I had a lost this H&M dress on Ebay three times before I final won it for the bargain price for £3.70. It is in perfect condition and was perfect for a meal out for my Mum's boyfriend's birthday - I was so chuffed that I didn't slop food or curry all over it, which was a bit of a miracle with the way I went to town on some lamb chops.

  3. I love that frock! Shows of your legs so well.

    The beauty of a paisley frock is that you could spill curry on it and it wouldn't show too much!

    1. Thanks Caroline, you certainly would not like to see my legs without the tights - they are so white, you can't look directly at them. x

  4. Sometimes I'm glad that the shipping from Ebay is so damn expensive, because I would have ordered tons of stuff :D
    I love this new dress, and what a bargain! The clutch is so fancy and I see a little glitter on it *_*

    1. Yeah sometimes the postage costs are ridiculous - what are they packaging things in, eagle feathers?
