Most shoes are size 6 or 7, and they are all (of course!) gorgeous!

Black Dolce & Gabbana Pencil Skirt (Lace)

Black Dolce & Gabbana Pencil Skirt (Lace)

You see this beauty? Delicate black lace, thick black satin band around the top? This is currently on sale for about £200, and is by D&G. The best thing? This skirt is pretty much an exact replica of a vintage Frank Usher lace skirt, which I just bought on eBay for a grand total of £3. Yup, less than a fiver, and in perfect condition too! Now, what to wear this lovely lovely item with?

Beautiful Floral Ball Gown

Beautiful Floral Ball Gown

I am feeling kind of like partying today. Not clubbing, but dancing, and eating canapés, and sipping blush champagne from tall fluted glasses. As such, this heavy winter ball gown is just the sort of thing that would help me to do that. Although I would still need to acquire the ballroom, the canapés, and the other guests. But hey. This stunning and unusual floral ball gown is £54.99, and has 6 days to go – and I wish it was mine!

You can tell my mood is starting to pick up when I start online shopping again. It is hard currently, as I have to do it in my lunch hour, but never mind! Anyway, today rather than eBay I have been trawling Etsy. I didn’t get very far, as there on the first page was this stunning leather diary cover. It is, quite frankly, gorgeous! The leather looks stunning, and as for the hand-crafted design?! Well, if I was the type of person who would spend $120 on a cover, then I would buy it. But I am tight – so one of you guys will have to buy it instead!

sam edelman balenciaga zoe harness wedge boot

First off, apologies… Semi-daily eBay has become more Semi-Monthly. However, I am on a self imposed stop-spending binge at the moment, so shall no doubt be featuring many pretty things purely to try to force someone to buy them on my behalf.

Now, on with the subject of this post. These boots. These bold, daring and downright dangerous boots. They are, of course, utterly ridiculous, and it would be wrong if they were anything but. They also currently cost £100, which is painful, but to be fair not completely stratospheric – and they are in my size, which makes their presence all the more unbearable! These completely meet all my requirements for bold biker boots, sky-high wedges and attitude. I love them!

Glasses made from recycled bottles

I had to share these gorgeous little glasses with you! I know that we have seen a plethora of recycled bottle glasses hitting the shops over the past few years, but these little tumblers are different. They are cute, retro, and above all else the variety means that they stand out from a crowd. They would have to be kept on display though, to show off their gorgeous looks!

Art Deco Poste Mistress Heels, size 4

Art Deco Poste Mistress Heels, size 4

I haven’t done a Semi-Daily eBay post for a while – I have been a bit distracted with buying many things on the fabulous auction site for myself. However, today I decided to get back in the flow, and what a way to start! These beautiful Poste Mistress heels popped up in the vintage section, and they are definitely vintage inspired – the duck egg blue is so reminiscent of the early decades of last century, and that amazing copper ribbon design gives it that Art Deco edge. Alas, considering that they only cost a miniscule £4.99 currently, they are a UK Size 4, and far far too small for me. Anyone care to buy them instead?

Ooh, I am having a week of Louboutin lust! Whilst most other very expensive shoe designers pass me by (at least the very well known ones, like Jimmy Choo), Louboutin always produces shoe that whilst over-priced still seem to sum up what shoes (or more specifically, heels) should mean. Sexy, powerful, dramatic, I want all of them! These are another pair I have been lusting after, and if I had a spare couple of hundred squids I would be buying them right this second!

I love this shop. I want to buy everything. It is all cheaply priced, yet every piece is unusual and unique. They really do have a collection of vintage that anyone would be envious of, and I simply had to share them with you! They are American, so delivery is more, but I have to confess that I think they are worth it, completely and utterly. Without further ado, here are some of my favourite choices:

Puff Sleeved 1980s Vintage Dress

Lace and Taffeta 1980s Vintage Dress

Sequinned Star Patterned 1980s Vintage Dress

Vintage 1980s Grey Fox Cloak

Op Art Vintage 1960's Dress
