Blouses and Ebay troubles...

So I've been on the hunt for a lovely cream dress that wasn't too frilly or girly. Well, I failed to find a dress but I'm loving this blouse! My Lil' sister likens the long poofy sleeves to being 'Tudor-like'. Well, not quite, but I'm loving it, especially the peter pan collar and I chose to wear it for a lovely pub lunch for my friend's birthday yesterday. Though, the only downside is that there isn't any stretch in it...so ladies with boobage, stay away!

Seeing I'm glued to my laptop typing up my dissertation everyday, I've found myself spending a stupid amount of time surfing ebay. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the site after having a bit of an issue with it a few years ago when someone hacked into my account, selling FAKE Burberry scarves. This meant I ended up with crazy seller's fees and it took me a while to get it all sorted out in the end. If any of my uni friends are reading this now, they might laugh at the memory of the drama of it all back then, not that REAL scarves would have made much of a difference but chavvy replicas dented my ego a little bit! Ok, well maybe a lot!

Anyway, I was not a happy bunny and I've stayed away ever since....until er now. I've been wanting to get this eyeliner for ages and at 2am sometime last week, I gave in and bought this eyeliner! It's the Dolly Wink eyeliner by Tsubasa Masuwaka (Japanese model/gyaru/icon).

I'm no make up guru (and no one wants to see my face THAT close to the camera) but I had to post this up because the packaging is soo cute! I do love my eyeliner and this one is pretty good so far. Oh ebay, it looks like I'm back!

  2. ohh. your blouse is so pretty! i'm after one just like that! i just love your viv westwood necklace too! the eyeliner packaging is ever so pretty. and oh no about the fake burberry scarves, it's crazy how people can hack into stuff, isn't it? my old hotmail account got hacked into, it was (and still is!) a nightmare.

    love, jazzabelle. x

  3. That blouse is SO cute! Although, I love things frilly and girly so I wouldn't have had a hard time finding something I liked!

    Also: I had an ebay obsession about a year ago. I bought way too much stuff and most of it wasn't that nice in person/didn't fit and it ended up living in a trunk for about 8 months! I finally ended up giving it away to charity, but it made a huge dent in my savings! :(

  7. i'm a bit addicted to ebay. although if the same thing had happened to me i'd have been put off for life, how horrible! it is so good for little things like make-up though, i just got some benefit mascara for £3 when its normally really expensive!
    you look lovely in the blouse, good choice

  28. I've been admiring that blouse in store for weeks, looks great on you. I can't believe your eBay story, must've been such a pain! I'm glad you've managed to have a decent experience with the site; it's amazing the amount of cool stuff you can get for so little. You must let me know how you get on with the eyeliner; might be ending up with similar 2am style splurges...

  36. OOPS, I've already read this post but forgot to leave a comment :O
    Anyways, I'm loving this blouse! It is SO working on you. It reminds me of this Erin Featherston x Target dress that I have and love love love SO much.
    Let us know how that eyeliner works out, I'm searching for the perfect liquid eyeliner and tbh the packaging on this one is sucking me right in.


    Re your comment: Oops, I don't know who Tabuchi is, but I have her on my header? HAHA! Is she the girl from Spank? That's my guess... in which case I LOVE HER TOO!

  38. im so jealous of your necklace ^^ and tehe i sometimes bring loads of magazine too :p

  39. I absolutely love this shirt...

    The pretty pleating and unexpected proportions are incredibly romantic.

    I can totally empathise with your Ebay woes.

    My Hotmail was recently hacked and a company have been emailing everyone in my contact list with offers of handbags, laptops, and fake Louboutins.

    It's embarrassing because they manipulate the emails to show my signature at the end, so it looks as though I am actually touting their cr*p!

  41. I love the color combo of nudey brown and black. Looks great on your cute blouse! A little bit Tudor-y but that's definitely not a bad thing. :)

  46. Let us know how you get on with it, I used to swear by a rimmel one and buy it in bulk, but they've discontinued my variation :( Apparently (and I'm not being sarcastic) the Primark one is unashamedly amazing! I talk from a friend's experience!

    Lovelyyy blouse too! I know Topshop has got some pretty lace jersey dresses in at the moment,

  53. not really a fan of ebay either. I've seen makeup gurus on ebay talking about this makeup and they all seem to like it. Love the blouse by the way, looks kind of victorian!
