Since re-opening my vintage store I feel like I spend an awful lot of time on eBay of late. So I thought I'd post a list of some my favourite eBayers, I know how tedious it can be trawling through the mountains of sellers so here's some handy links!

My numero uno, Maki Maki. The model/owner is an absolute beauty with the the kind of legs I'd kill for! Lovelovelove her ink as well. Most pieces go for around £70, the more original pieces have been known to go for upwards of £300 though.

Nice classic pieces (more often than not from Topshop) at a fairly cheap price. The only qualms I have is that the pictures aren't always of a great quality. Love the model's hair though.

Great styling, photography and models. There's always the odd item which slightly errs on the dodgy side but overall a good seller. They seem to specialise in avant garde pieces. Only downside is the P&P as they're based in America. Plus any item item over £40 will accrue tax charges on top of this which you'll have to pay before you can pick the item up from the parcel depot. I learnt this the hard way!

Very similar to the previous seller, although these pieces tend to be a tad pricier. Lullie Vintage does attempt to keep their pieces in line with seasonal trends though, and all the pieces are very individual. Even if your purse strings can't afford it, their stuff is great to look at purely for inspiration!

That's plenty of fashion juices for your eyeballs to savour over for one evening, there's plenty more eBay hot picks around but I'm too lazy to add them for now. Look out for the rest in my post tomorrow!

Wantlist Cont.

Some pieces I forgot to add:

Like I said in the earlier post, most of these pieces are a few seasons old in terms of the fashion stakes but I like them nonetheless.

I'm also seriously considering going ahead with a quarter sleeve as well, that's a tattoo that goes all the way around my forearm from my wrist to my elbow. I'll probably regret it 10 years down the line when it makes me look like a total thug on my wedding day or at a job interview or something but whatever, I'm all for the living in the moment!

Arghh I desperately need to stock up on MAC goodies as well, I'm down to the last of everything. I'm literally scraping my foundation out of the container, plus all my blushers have a hugeeee silver circle in the middle that refuse to stop growing :(

Can't believe that my student loan doesn't come through for another 6 weeks!


Kindly featured me on her blog this week, so it's only fair that I return the favour.

Every post is filled with wonderful snippets of bang on trend fashion pieces and she has the most adorable sign off as well! I am filled with blog envy, hers is everything mine should be!

Spendaholics (not so) anonymous.

My wishlist. Well it's more of a wantlist than a wishlist as most items in the list are under £50, but basically I've realised that there are a few gaps in my wardrobe that I need to as soon as my loan comes through I'll be buying these beauts:

Floral romper

Gladiator sandals, also in brown.

Either of these Marc Jacobs fragrances, I just love how fresh and clean they smell.

Floral leggings.

Denim playsuit.

A decent leather jacket (I've been sporting a nasty Primarni version of late).

Luella wayfarers.

Items I've bought recently include a vintage Levis denim waistcoat, a multi-strand gold necklace, a vintage fuchsia jersey body con skirt, stonewashed denim skinny jeans, stonewash denim AA shorts, an oversized vintage denim shirt and a black lace grunge dress. Seems I have a real thing for denim!

I've decided that I'm no longer going to try and keep up with the latest fashion forecasts because I always end up feeling like I'm coming off a bit too 'try hard' I end up getting severely depressed when my wardrobe rapidly falls behind with the times when I have no money to update it. I'm aware that a lot of items in my list aren't exactly bang on trend for SS09 but I'd rather wear clothes that reflect my personal style and me as a person, and not the style of an editor of some glossy mag who will most likely push forward whatever trend she fancies based on which designer gives her the most freebies.

Plus with my current dire financial situation and what not it's probably ideal for me to start stocking up on quality basics that will see me through a couple of seasons, next stop American Apparel then....
