2 eBay Purchases

It's been a while since I've purchased something for myself. I don't know why but I don't like shopping for myself, like, I'm really stingy when it comes to shopping for myself but for the people I love... it's priceless! I'd try my best to get them something they'll LOVE regardless of the price.

So, that being said, I haven't done any thrifting lately but I have been eying some things on eBay and luckily for me, these items were on sale! Yaaay for patience!


So, after a few classes (and some fashion blogs), I felt like my bag was too small. Literally, once I shove my textbook in there, there's no room for anything else which bugs me because sometimes I'd like to carry my tablet or an extra book. 

I saw this bag on an Asian fashion website for about $20. I mean, don't get me wrong, $20 is pretty cheap but knowing that the Asian fashion probably operates in Asia, I decided to look if it was available on eBay - and what'd you know?! I managed to get this cute cat bag for $12... and free shipping! 

Best part about eBay is the fact that if I don't enjoy it, I get my refund back. Whereas the Asian fashion website probably wouldn't even reply to your emails.


Likewise for this blue top. I love the chiffon fabric in the spring and summer time. I can dress it up casually or more business-like (which reminds me - I need to update my wardrobe with more business casual attire). This top is $7 with free shipping.

Sometimes, I enjoy being cheap and shopping on eBay instead. Saving me loads on money to spend on other people, haha.


  1. I've actually never tried refunding anything on ebay. Since most of the stuff is from Hong Kong/china, refunding the item would cost more to ship it back from Australia than the original item.

  2. I haven't shopped on ebay in years! I am looking for something for a friend and I have been browsing a bit on there. Those look great by the way!

  3. Whenever I get something I don't like or has been damaged (especially fashion items), I usually send a message to the eBay seller explaining the problem and he/she will apologize profusely and ask if you would to receive a new item or refund. At that point, I usually ask for a refund and try my luck purchasing the same item from a different eBay seller. Refunds just goes back into your PayPal though :( and PP requires $15 minimum to transfer back into your bank (ughghghghg).

  4. Thank you! I think I get something from eBay every month... can't refuse a good deal on such cute items! Good luck on searching for the perfect gift for you friend :D
