Day Glow


I found this skirt on eBay last summer and fell in love with the graphic print, so I bought it...but when it arrived, it was way too small for me.  I kept it for about a month, thinking maybe I could "shrink" into it (we've all been there)...then came to my senses & sold it to someone else.  But, I kept thinking about it & how much I wished I could find this style again.  So, I started searching eBay listings in January, checking every week & just hoping against hope that it would somehow pop up.  And then it did - but this time, it was in the right size and for just $15!  It further confirmed my belief in persistence when hunting for a bargain. J 





What I'm wearing:
J. Crew blouse (here - found mine on eBay for half price!), White House Black Market skirt (via eBay), Nina booties (but these would have looked so much better), ASOS clutch, Michael Kors watch, Target sunnies, Lips: Revlon Colorburst Coral

I've been doing a whole lot of ebay shopping too!! there are so many deals to be had. I'm looking for winter coats and getting them at such great prices. We have winter here for what feels like half the year, so I really do need more coats than I have (2)!! Love the polish, btw. I need some brights!!
