Despite finding the cape of perfection yesterday, eBay has surfaced absolutely nothing for me for a long time. After hours of sifting through vintage 'style' smocks or block 90's attic crap there doesn't seem to be anything worth the pennies. This could be due to the Christmas run where people don't chuck their goods until late January for spring cleaning. Vintage stores are full of long 80's polyester tea dresses, so I always hit ebay for my short puffball fancies, but lately it's been so bone dry I've turned to my dusty folder of the items that got away...
Cher knows my pain- yes, if I could turn back time I would!!! But I do not have Bernard's watch. Actually, that just stopped time, which would be pretty useful too. Maybe I need a time machine. Neither is possible though so I'll show the mournful snaps of items that should rightfully be mine right now, but they went for too much money/I forgot to bid (oh the pain!) I started saving them in a folder in hopes of finding something similar, but alas they are all one of a kind.
Strangely this popped up on eBay UK, but was originally from France with shows England is limited to bad 80's junk. It's covered in dominos!!!!!!!! Not to mention a divine shape and pockets! Eeeek the £40 bids were not to my bank balance though.
I was poised on the bid now tab for this beauty a few days ago but my rational mind clawed me away, as really- when am I going to wear this?? The pink shiny tights are yummy though, totally what is needed to matt the sequins but pop the outfit!
Sequins and tulle and puffy skirt heeeeaven!!! I bet it made a super sound when dancing too.
Yes, I actually found something iridescent/ombre/colour bleed/ whatever you want to call it- all I know is that there will be nothing more perfectly trend worth and workable in the same garment! And I forgot to bid!!!!!
Some super hot, super high, super LIPSTICK red shoes with bows! Not to mention they're vintage.
I write love letters to vintage princess coats but they do not reply. I thought I'd found the perfect one but many others thought the same and pushed the $100 mark *sob*
I could never decide whether I liked this dress or not, as the polka dots and petals and sequins were all a bit lurid but the shape was fabby and I wouldn't pass up an extra party dress now!
This wouldn't have fitted anyway but it was a long bridesmaid's dress that I bubbled up. Practically all the dresses I sold were pinned at the back to fit nicer, so keep that in mind when eBaying!!
At the moment I'm hunting for anything tulle or net so if I still had this dress I would have cut it super short so the net stuck out like a tutu.
This dress was soooo tiny but had a really low back too and chunky straps and oh what I would give for it now in a bigger size!!
Painful posting *sniffle* what did you loose?
