I am horrible at thrifting and buying second hand clothes. I have nothing against buying used clothing and think it's a great way to build a wardrobe of clothes that not everyone else is wearing and is also good for the environment. I just wished I had the patience to go to thrift/consignment store and try things on. I shop about 95% online and rarely even go into physical stores other than to make quick returns.
I know that ebay sells new and used clothes but I rarely go on there to find things that I want. This skirt was the exception. I saw this on Lisa of Respect the Shoes a few years ago and fell in love with it. Something about the skirt, I knew I had to have it. I decided to try eBay and it was like the skirt gods were watching me because there was 1 skirt liked in my size!! I figure why test fate and bought the skirt.
I have been wanting to buy a used Chanel purse and was thinking about buying it on eBay but I am way too scared. Buying a skirt for under $100 is not a big deal but when you are spending several thousands, you are a little more leery.
Have you made any high priced purchase through eBay or other used item sites? What are your tips on buying higher ticket items?
