My 50's Dream Dress On eBay

Compared to most fashion bloggers I'm a true eBay novice. So far I haven't won a single item. However, now that I've debited my pay pal account, this might change very soon...
Every time I search the site, I'm amazed by its wide selection. There's almost too much to chose from! How will I be sure I'm bidding for the right item? I guess I just have to do some "empirical studies" - learning by doing, right?

One thing I'm sure of, though, is that I'll place a bid for this wonderful 50s party dress from
TimelessVixen. I really hope it won't go too high, because it would be just perfect for my friend's wedding next summer:)

she has lovely items for sure, but if you've ever been outbid by one of her buying ids then you would know that she aquires all her items ON Ebay and then resells them.

Look around Ebay and you'll be able to scoop the items up before she sells them for a higher price!

Wow, I didn't know that. Thanks for the tip! Now, I'll definately search Ebay for similar dresses.

Hey there, what a great site you have! Check out EBay seller *knockout*clothing* sometime for great affordable vintage. All listings start at $9.99 and under and/or have really low reserves - even on higher end merchandise! Great dresses from the 1940s-1980s. Swing, rockabilly, mod, boho, hippie, disco, new wave, etc. etc. I've been in the Ebay biz for 7 years, have a good feedback record, offer combined shipping, and ship worldwide!
