Ebay adventures v.2

So my ebay adventures... The shoes I ordered, aren't the ones that I thought I ordered! So sad... very, similar, but not the same. Sigh, I'm sad... they're very similar, but the peep toe is much larger, so it allows more of my toes to stick out more.

In other news... has anyone had really good luck on ebay? Any tips? I never seem to really know what I'm doing and end up with things that aren't exactly what I wanted.

Also, in other news... I would like to update my blog... suggestions?

Why I shouldn't be allowed on ebay...

I love the concept of ebay… the coupon cutting, bargain hunting part of me loves it. But I don’t really have good experiences. Granted I’ve only used ebay a handful of times, but it seems like most of my experiences end badly. This past weekend is the latest in my follies. I decided that there are a pair of Enzo Angiolini mary janes that I MUST HAVE. But I’m a little late to the game, and these are not a current style. So I had a brilliant news flash –let’s look at ebay! Well, no one is selling a pair of these fabulous shoes, but while I’m there I figured I might as well check out what other shoes people are selling. I scrolled through pages of shoes and there were 2 pairs of shoes that I like priced reasonably that I thought I should place a bid on. Well fast forward to today… I go on to check to see if someone is selling those mary janes… and low and behold, I won the bid for one of my shoes… and am currently winning the bid on the other. The shoes are reasonably priced (in total if I win, it’ll be under $100), but this isn’t really $100 I have to spend on shoes, nor are these shoes that I really need. I mean one of them is a style of shoe I already own in 5 colors… yes, seriously, FIVE.

But I still don’t have these:

It's Saturday night and I am at a college sporting event. This in and of itself isn't that unusual, but it is a women's indoor volleyball game for a school I did not attend nor do I know anyone on the team (past or present).

I did however get a glimpse into my future. There's a girl scout event so there are swarms of little girls and the requisite mothers chaperoning. There's a lot of high pitched yelling and weary looking mothers. Yup. This is what I can see in my future. Wait, why the rush for kids? :) kidding.

This is hard...

Oh no... this blogging thing is hard! Jeez... So I tried to post from my phone, this lovely picture of a bumpit in action (i.e. in real life), but it didn't quite work... maybe I should actually take REAL pictures with my camera... this will teach me.

So, I have nothing interesting to say. Not a one... so sad...

I'm not sure how to crop this picture so you're getting it in all its glory -I saw a bumpit in real life. From the front it looked great.

I wish I had a picture of the back because it was a hot mess.

(ed note: picture did not come through... but trust me when I say, it wasn't really working for her...)

I figure since I get my best blogging ideas while on the road I should hook up mobile blogging. Let's see if this worked :)
