eBay Collections livpurvis Hello I am Olivia and I am a bad shopper. Not in all senses, I am a great shopper when it comes to impulse buys, frivolous spending and being completely impatient with vintage shopping- but in terms of finding great deals, rummaging for bargains and discovering incredible one off's, I'm pretty pants. For ages I longed to be that girl who picked up that one off vintage sixties mini off of eBay, and there are still days I scour the site for that Barbara Hulanicki for Topshop dress (yup, if anyone's selling, ahem)- but it's only until lately that I've developed a real penchant for eBay- with a little help from their new Collections feature.

Okay, I'm not much of a dedicated seller (although with a little patience there's a blog sale around the corner) but it's creating Collections (and subsequently buying from them) that's really had me at hello. Inspired by my favourite people (read: A Chung) and eras (60's/70's) I've curated twelve boards filled with items that I love, making shopping a little more straightforward and outfit building hopefully a little simpler- a Pinterest for shopping if you like, and I hope you can get as inspired shopping and building your own as I have mine! Have a nosey here if you fancy!

  1. I get nervous shopping on eBay because I can't see what I'm buying, but I think I definitely need to get over my fear!

  6. I've been really lucky with eBay - I always find some great deals, and some of my favourite outfits have an element of eBay in them. It can take hours to trawl through the crap, but when you do, you'll find some real diamonds!

  7. P.S. do you mean this dress http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BARBARA-HULANICKI-at-TOPSHOP-skater-coral-patterned-dress-Size-12-14-/111310306224 ? I don't know what size you are, but it's probably worth taking in if you need to :)

  13. I always scout ebay before buying something in the shops, half the time the clothes are brand new so I've definitely saved a fair bit buying high street clothing this way.

    That's some ace wallpaper too by the way!

  19. I have had great success shopping with Ebay in the past...plus paying with PayPal feels like you haven't spent anything at all- it's so dangerous!
