eBay Bargain Picks #4: Autumn/Winter Boots


1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Im sure you're all somewhat aware by now that chunky boots are big news for Autumn/Winter, and it looks like the clunkier, the better! The phrase "Man Repeller" has been used to describe this type of shoe, and it's one trend that I will definitely be jumping on board with. Now I'm no stranger to my quirky ankle boots (see here, here and here) however, this years desirables are significantly lower and more mannish looking, which to me means more comfortable, which means HUZZAH! 

I also know that I'm a bit quick on the draw in showing you A/W boots when we're still sweating away here in August, but I figured that since most of these items will take at least two, maybe three weeks to ship, that anyone who orders will get them just in time! I hope you guys enjoy this special boot-theemed eBay post, I think I might organise them like this from now on, it makes more sense to group them into themes. I have been getting a wonderful response from you all towards these posts, (read my recent ones here and here) and I'm delighted you like them so much! Please let me know if there is any particular trend or item you would like me to hunt down on eBay, and I will happily put my trawling skills to good use.

 Disclaimer: As with all my eBay bargain posts, please read my beginners guide if you have never shopped on eBay before, so you will know what to expect. Also, be sure to read the descriptions of any item you wish to buy. Considering the cheapness of some of these boots, please don't expect them to be genuine leather, as I am sure most of them are not, and like many highstreet shops, they are probably made from artificial leather. 

Ps: Did you see that I've given my blog a little facelift? I've been getting some help from a lovely blogger Hannah whom I met at the Blog Awards last week, and together we've in the process of giving WildChild Stories a whole new look! I'd love to know what you all think of it.

Peace,

Outfit Post: Wide Eyes











Skort : eBay // Shirt : eBay // heels & chain : Penneys/Primark // watch : Casio

After the great reaction to my last eBay bargain picks post (read here) I am excited to show you some of these bargain pieces in an actual outfit post! Fort those of you asking about sizing, I am a size UK10 and  I chose the large size for my skirt just to be on the safe side, as Asian sizing runs quite small in comparison. The result is a relaxed loose fit, which is exactly what I wanted, I don't think these skirts are meant to be worn very tight-fitting. I would say that the large size would probably fit a size 12 also, but if anyone is buying, I would recommend checking the measurements first just to be sure.

Also, how amazing is this printed top? I am having a passionate, unflinching love affair with print and bright colours over the past few months, so this shirt was an instant winner for me. The plain t-shirt shape contrasts wonderfully with the bonkers print, I think that if the cut of the shirt was any more complicated, the whole thing would look too fussy. Another feature that I adore about an outfit like this is the comfort-factor*. Its loose and airy, and I can move in it easily, which always makes me feel more confident, and in-turn, I feel that I look better overall. Don't you just hate those days ( or nights) when you are constantly pulling and tugging at your outfit?! I think its a total buzz kill.

As I mentioned in my last outfit post, I am delighted to be back into the swing of shooting outfits (thanks, Yoseph!) and I have some more lined up for you all in the next few days, as well as my next eBay post, which I am currently working on.

Peace,

*Note: The "comfort-factor" does not however, apply to shoes. For example, these shoes in particular are a b*tch to wear for a long time, but they are fabulous, and I love them. It is also worth nothing that exactly 3 cocktails will sufficiently increase a shoes "comfort-factor", but may also lead to twirling, dancing and general tomfoolery.
