My latest Trademe purchases

My latest Trademe purchases

For $100, I bought all of the above items. I love, love, love the bottom skirt . It is by Storm and pure silk – soft and floaty. It is in perfect condition and cost me all of $15.50.

The colourful, flirty dress is by Portmans and I bought it for $30. With a snappy black jacket, it is perfect for work.

I haven’t worn the necklace yet ($11.01) but I can imagine it on a plain black skivvy or with a white, open-neck shirt. The other skirt is gorgeous and also in great condition but it was the one I told you about a few posts ago. The trader had made a mistake with the measurements and sent me the wrong skirt – it was far too big for me. With complete co-operation the trader refunded me my money plus all postage costs and I returned the skirt.

 I have since sold two jackets and easily  recouped the amount I spent on these four items. An ever-changing wardrobe for no cost. What could be better than that for a fashion lover?

My Latest Purchase

Here’s my latest purchase on I’m not sure how I found these gloves because I never specifically targeted them but I’m glad they popped up. A trader obviously makes them and sells them on Trademe for a living because she has them in various different colours and with different decorations – pearls like on mine or coloured sequins or beads. They fit well and are so warm. It’s often chilly in my work office but I need to be able to use a computer so these keep my hands warm while leaving my fingers free.

Versatility – Many Outfits in One

I started with  a lace top/dress I bought off and played with a few pieces I already had – a waistcoat my niece gave me, my prized black Storm leggings and the jacket from this post.

Wear it in any of the combinations in the photos and that’s just the start for a basic like this. I added high, strappy heels but boots would work well too. To finish I added a necklace made of chain, large pearls, gold baubles and a gold metal butterfly.
