Floral Frill



I have long professed my love for shopping on eBay - it's one of the best places to find pieces that have been discontinued or are no longer available...and you never know when you'll come across something amazing.  This skirt is a perfect example of just that - a designer piece in an of-the-moment shape for less than $40!  I couldn't believe when I found that it's still available online for just under $150.  Even though it is black, when paired with a bright floral shell (this one is only $20!), it is totally spring-appropriate and fun.





What I'm wearing:
LOFT top (on sale here; in petites here), Moschino Cheap & Chic skirt via eBay (here or similar in faux leathercobalt blueblack & polka dot print), Belt via eBay (similar here or here), ALDO pumps (similar), ASOS clutch (here), c/o Cheerfully Charmed bracelet (similar), Target sunnies (here), Lips: CoverGirl Lip Perfection Enchantress

Love the way florals make black spring appropriate and the way black toughens up florals. What a great ebay find in that skirt, super cute!

I feel like it's gotten harder to find great deals on ebay, but If you put in the time (and make saved searches) you never know what you can score!

Love your clutch - it reminds me of the seat of my chair.

I haven't done the ebay clothes thing yet. I have bought Halloween costumes but for some reason I haven't taken the plunge to do the real thing yet. But if you are finding stuff this cute, then I'm definitely going to have to check it out! And can I add, aren't wearing pink heels amazing?? I always feel like I'm wearing my Barbie's shoes!
