I have been really excited to write this post as last week I made an absolutely spectacular purchase that I have just been dying to show you! I have always loved the brand House of Holland but have never been able to afford the magically printed clothing that they produce. However, last week I managed to buy this absolutely gorgeous 100% silk cigarette print dress for a mere £20 off eBay instead of the RRP of £195! This may be one of my best bargains yet! The dress was in a new with tags condition and no one else bid on it (I really don't know why!). Ebay is a great place for cheap designer goods especially if you are patient and look out for things. I recommend having a saved search of your favourite designers and this will update every time someone places an item on eBay by that designer. That way you don't have to search through thousands of pages of items but get an instant update of items you might be interested in when someone lists them as an auction.
A t-shirt dress really is amazing as it is completely adaptable. Throw on a woolen jumper, chunky socks and boots for winter or wear it on its own with sandals for summer. It is so easy and comfy to wear and a bright colour or pattern like this one automatically makes you look stylish without even trying! I decided to match the glamorous pattern on mine with my beautiful Sam Edelman "Zoyla" boots which I also bought off eBay for a bargain price. My vintage bag was bought from an Oxfam in Bristol and although a few beads are missing I love it! And finally my gorgeous fly necklace was a graduation gift from my mum and is by Elizabeth and James. The studs in the accessories of this outfit really make it stand out and bring out the pattern of the dress.
