Zebra Blouse






blouse, h! by henry holland at debenhams
belt, thrifted
shorts, thrifted
socks, miss selfridge
wedges, peacocks


This blouse couldn't be more me! Peter pan collar? check. Sheer blouse? check. Bright sunny colour? check. Animal Print? check. Equestrian? check!

It was my birthday yesterday. I had a brilliant day and a fantastic fun filled birthday party! It was such beautiful weather so my cousins and friends went to the beach. We played rounders and had a massive picnic with lots of baked goodies to scoff after. I need to do a little show off post of my birthday presents!

My wardrobe and cupboards are at bursting point and I'm tempted to go though it all and flog some stuff on ebay. Thing is I'm always a little anxious to put my stuff up on ebay as: a. I'm afraid I'd get addicted and end up with nothing and b. I don't think anyone really will want any of my stuff :S So I'm wondering what are your experiences with ebay? Have you actually made much money from selling your old unwanted clothes and accessories? Or has it not overall been worth it?

animal print...awesome choice. always a fav.

i've never done the whole ebay or etsy.com selling but i think even if you don't make any money, it'll at least put some money back in your pocket to help pay for the next wardrobe new piece!

talk soon wild child

I just found this link after commenting on your latest Lookbook post! I'm currently selling two pairs of shoes on eBay, finishing in about 10 minutes. It can be a bit hit and miss, but if you've got good taste then they'll probably sell. Starting things cheap can be a great way to get interest - I know I look at things and am immediately put off by a high starting price!

If what you're thinking of selling is anything as nice as what you're wearing, you'd be fine :)

Also, I know what you mean about potentially getting addicted and ending up with no clothes left. I'm tempted to grab my camera and flog some stuff that I do not wear much but when I do wear I perhaps enjoy wearing!

Hope you enjoy reading this monologue anyway! Haha xx

Gorgeous look! I love socks with ewdges and you look great here. The blouse is splendid! I never tried to sell my old clothes but I have been thinking quite a lot...don't know how much I would make though...

I love this blouse, but sadly I look terrible in yellow so it's not meant to be!

Go for it with ebay! I've made about £250 over about 2 years just putting a load of things on every summer. I got lucky twice and bidders ended up paying more than I paid for the items! Just make sure you put as much info as poss in the descriptions, and I usually start at about 99p and the bids soon go up. It's amazing what people will buy, and quite often the things you think won't sell do. Good luck!

Happy Birthday, Sarah! :)

Looking so chic in that blouse and shorts.

I've sold some of my items online but not in ebay but through FACEBOOK. It's really worth it. I only sell to people in my community. It's old school cause we have to do meet-ups. Good luck with selling. I'm sure you'll have a lot of buyers.

Love this look! I've sold a fair few things on eBay and it's been well worth it in my opinion. All you have to do is make sure your photos are attractive & consistent (usually great if you can find a crisp white wall and some natural light), really show off the item's shape, cut and best features, and start at a price that's low but reasonable in terms of what you're selling (they don't all have to be the same!). Also including measurements in your description is a godd idea, makes it easier for buyers. Hope that helps! :D

Your blog is BEAUTIFUL. I can't believe I hadn't found it sooner. I adore your style, just made my way through pretty much your whole blog! Happy birthday for yesterday, and about ebay, I started a year ago or so, but It really is the best way for selling. In the last batch of clothes I've sold, about 4, I got an insane amount. I recommend it! panda xo
