I bought: Eleven 99p eBay Dresses ♥

I was on a bidding spree on eBay about a month ago, and managed to win a range of dresses for on average about 99p each. Some were up to £1.30 etc, and then postage of a maximum of £2.50 was on each one. So here’s what I bought…

Left: This dress isn’t branded, and is just a tight bodycon dress with a burgundy v-neck top and a tight black skirt bottom half. 
Right: This cute navy blue dress is from Primark and comes printed with lots of little yellow daisies. It’s made from a sheer chiffon fabric and I love the fit of this dress but unfortunately it’s too low cut and loose for me so I will be reselling this one.

Left: This dress was sold in New Look around Christmas time 2 Christmases ago for about £25. I always had my eye on it so placed a bid on eBay for this. Unfortunately it doesn’t suit me at all so won’t be keeping.
Right: This bodycon Motel dress is the same as one I’ve already got but in a different pattern. The original price was about £25.

Left: I absolutely adore this dress! It’s navy blue and has little tiny London icons on it such as Big Ben and the London Eye! It’s by Max C London and also has a gold studded waist. I love this but it’s HUGE for a size 12. I don’t know whether to attempt to sew it smaller or to sell it on.
Right: This dress turned up on my door and is horrible and not like it looked on eBay! eBay is a bit hit and miss though so I’m not upset about it! It’s quite sweet I guess, but really hippy chic. This has already been resold.

Left: Another disaster, this dress I thought would be a thick bodycon dress that would be slimming and hide my lumps and bumps. But it was shockingly thin and certainly couldn’t hide my belly wobble. Amazingly though I resold it for £9 and the winner was thrilled with it!
Right: I love this electric blue dress which I bought for my holiday, but unfortunately it’s too large around the bust so will be reselling.

Left: This cute little babydoll dress is currently in the Primark sale for only £7 so it’s obviously a new-ish dress! I can’t say I’m a massive fan of it on me though. Undecided what to do with it!
Right: I love this dress, in fact it’s probably the only one out of all the dresses I bought off eBay that I actually like and want to keep! It’s a nice simple black dress with a cute lacey top half.

And finally, this sheer blue wrap around dress is really beautiful but the wrap bit falls so low on me!! And I really don’t have the cleavage for it. Boo. This will also be resold!

So as you can see, I picked up a lot of dresses for 99p, however, none of them I really liked that much or needed. So don’t just keep pressing Confirm Bid unless you want to end up with a load of dresses you now need to flog at a carboot sale!

    I know exactly what you mean by things not looking how they appear on the listing! So many times I've bid because it was cheap and looked alright then hated it when its turned up haha! If I'm ebaying now I normally stick to things I've seen in a shop myself, on someone I know or that are from a shop on ebay. Little tip – try aim for things which are shown on people because its a better indication! 🙂 X

    I used to buy a lot of clothes from eBay, but I would find the same thing – a lot didn't suit me, didn't look the same as the pictures or didn't fit right 🙁 Then again, I have had one or two amazing finds too, so it's hit and miss! x

    Great finds! I'm usually too impatient to wait on bids…more of a "buy it now" girl but I love seeing your bargain hunts.

    I love the black and burgundy one! It's such a classic piece.
    That's the problem with ebay though, you really don't know what to expect, but still a great bargain nonetheless!

    I always stalk motel dresses on ebay, so much cheaper than they're own website.

    Such a shame you don't like most of them, hopefully you can sell a few more for a profit which is always good 🙂 x
