Does anybody else look at second hand sales sites, Facebook marketplace, Gumtree etc?
Sometimes when I bored I have a look for a bargain. Recently I hit the jackpot! Ladies clothes bundle in my size😁 She just itemised the clothes, 7 tops, 5 dresses, 5 pairs jeans, 3 skirts, 2 jackets, 2 play suits, a jumpsuit, a pair of culottes, a fur lined kimono etc. All in all worked out about £1 per item, and she lived 7 miles away, and it had just been posted on the website. I immediately asked if they were still available, they were so I arranged to see them late afternoon. I excitedly arrived and she brought a big full black bag to the door. I was reaching for my money when she said ‘would you like to see them?’ I’m way past being embarrassed in such situations so said yes please. She got down on her knees and proceeded to open each item out. It became clear to me she was a very fashion conscious woman, and it was clear she had an affection for her clothing, which was mostly from better quality shops. She went into stories about some items, ‘wore this play suit to see a George Michael tribute’ etc, and gave advice about certain items, ‘you could pair this top with a pair of skinny jeans or dress it up with a skirt’ etc. Her husband was hovering in the kitchen which made me feel a bit awkward about complimenting her style too much. She knew he was behind us and whispered to me a couple of times, ‘this is brand new and I’ve never worn it’, as if her hubby would be angry if he knew she was buying stuff, not wearing it, and selling it🤣
It was the most fun 10 minutes on the doorstep, and she seemed totally cool talking openly to me. Don’t know if she suspected they were for me🤔
Anyway I couldn’t wait to try them on when I got home, as exited as a child on Christmas morning. I have sent about a quarter of them to charity (don’t fit right or not my style) but still have lots of new additions to my wardrobe at a ridiculously low price, one of the items new would cost more than the amount I was paying for the whole bundle!!!
Cant wait for my next full alone Bianca day. Soooo looking forward to incorporating them into my existing wardrobe, seeing what my new stuff looks like with my old stuff, trying different combinations, mixing it up, a private fashion show💕
Maybe I’ll have to make my own clothes bundle to sell, to make room for the new clothes🤣
