'Rebound shoes' ...and the rest.

Liparazzi suggested I find myself a pair of 'rebound shoes' and I did - accidentally on Ebay yesterday morning. I ended up sniping them last night for 99p!! LOL

I got home this afternoon (long night!) and checked my Ebay account expecting to have been outbid and I'd won! Even if I don't like them when they arrive, who cares? They only cost me 99p + postage. I'm laughing. They're from New Look so should be okay for me size-wise as I have a few pairs from there.

I was on an Ebay auction winning streak last night it seems as I won all the other items that I'd been watching all week too
  • Jemma Kidd retractable blusher brush - £1.04
  • NARS e/s duo in Scorching Sun - £10.51 (RRP £23). Can't wait to get this!!
  • GOSH velvet touch eye liner in Black Ink - £2.20
All under RRP and BN. I love Ebay!!

I also bought a pair of deck shoes earlier this week. I've been meaning to buy a pair of these since last Summer but could never find a pair that fit properly. Well thank you God for New Look's wide fit range cos surprisingly they had a couple of size 8s left and they fit perfectly and don't even look like a wider fit, so all good.

Finally I picked up another checked shirt. It's from NL's tall range so a longer fit in the body which I appreciate being 5ft8 and I love the colourway. I can see this being teamed with my deck shoes and a pair of skinnies on a lazy day.
I have a clothes shopping list as long as my arm so will be ploughing through that over the next few weeks, so expect a few more retail purchases.

Your "rebound shoes" are sexy! I think it's soo funny how other bloggers enable each other--ha,ha! Enjoy your shoes!!

I am reading your blog just buying stuff off ebay, But now you have given me ideas on other stuff worth finding on ebay. Right now I am buying a mattress protector for my son saves me a few pounds and a book which is virtually free. I am oohing and ahhing as to if I should buy Mac fix+ from there too. but shoes!!!! Now I need to do a search because if you can buy great shoes at those prices I must be a part of it.

You have also given me the best idea as I have been looking for plimsoles for my son in bright colours so I might just ebay search and see what I can find.

PS I just bought a human hair piece for half the price in the shops and its brand new. If you have any ebay shopping tips and like items worth trying to find on there please compile. would love to read it. You defo got some good bargains

@ Patience - How much were they full price and how long ago were they instore?

@ Mama Mish mash - Thanks luvvie. I know - I've been influenced so much looking at other bloggers buys! Argh!

Yinka (VexInThecity) said...

@ Sofrolushes - You can get anything on Ebay! I've bought human hair for my braids for £3.99 per pack and it sells for £17 a pack! You name it, I've bought it off Ebay at some point! If I told you some of the stuff I'd bought you'd never believe it!

I may reveal my 'Ebay secrets' one day ...

Girl With The Golden Touch said...

Rhamnousia said...

99p for a pair of shoes is a steal! *gets back on ebay to find more cheap goodies*

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who buys rebound goods when the originals turn out to be crap


Imo said...

99p shoes!? whats the name of the ebay seller you purchased the Nars from? Let me know of your experience and if its good Ill follow suit and purchase from them too :D xxx

Yinka (VexInThecity) said...

@ Imo - It wasn't a 'shop' on Ebay. The seller was just selling a few random bits and her friend got her the NARS compact as a pressie but she didn't like the colours.

@ GWTGT - Yeah! I got the Jemmna Kidd brush in the end! *grins* Thanks for my award too :-)

@ The Makeup Snob - I have a few of the Velvet touch eyeliners. I really like them and would def rec the colours that I've bought so far.

@ Rhamnousia - I'm a self confessed Ebay addict!

Patience said...

I paid either £20 or £25 not to sure, but nothing over £25! And I bought them towards the end of summer/beginning of autumn last year.

...They are slightly too big for me tho! All my New Look shoes are! *grrr*
