Summer Style in an eBay Find

I’ve been on a serious hunt for stylish summer dresses that would transition easily into the fall.  And, I haven’t had much luck in my usually spots.

I decided to expand my shopping opportunities by trying a few used clothing stores.  St. Louis has quite a few resale shops that receive rave reviews.  I first tried Armarium during its business hours and it was closed.  The next day I visited Next and it was also closed during its business hours.  I will certainly try these places again, but what’s up with the inconsistent hours?

After the two experiences above, I turned to my more reliable eBay and scored.  I found a color blocked t-shirt dress by BCBG.  Get this.  It was new with tags, shipped for free, and 50% off the seller’s usual price for a final price of $37.50. 

I am going to wear this dress so much that the cost per wear ratio (cost of dress/number of times dress is worn) will soon approach zero.

Dress—BCBG Max Azria via eBay
Shoes—BCBG Paris via DSW
Bag—MICHAEL Michael Kors via eBay
Watch—Michael Kors via TJ Maxx

I got this dress from the Teresa Hilton eBay store.  Do you have any favorite eBay sellers?

    @Life as Leah: Thanks! I was instantly attracted to this one, but hesitated at the higher price. When I saw it marked down 50%, I clicked 'buy it now' so quickly. Ha.

    @Lori: Thanks much. I have gotten lucky with BCBG dresses on eBay lately. I hope this lucky streak lasts a bit longer.

    @Ru: Thanks for stopping by!

    @Anonymous: The color scheme makes it quite versatile in terms of potential pairings. I was certainly drawn to tan though.

    @Passion by Luv: Oooh…nice. This dress would really nice with gold, green, and black. I've only seen this style in white, black, and grey though.

    @Kish: Aw thanks! I was hoping that it would fit like that yellow tiered BCBG shirt dress and it did!

    @Capis: Thank ya!!
