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?

I love shoes.You all know that. It isn’t a facet of my personality that I can keep hidden for more than a few minutes of being in someone’s company. Part of this shoe-love is dreaming about beautiful shoe works of art that I couldn’t afford even if I tried, and these Nicholas Kirkwood heels really do fit the bill. Sure, they cost $650 – but they are damn pretty…

You all know that I love Irregular Choice. I also quite look shoes with a bit of a strange vibe or wacky touch – which means I was guaranteed to like these polka dot heels. The polka dots are cute enough by themselves (I am sure a certain Amber would like them…), and the little dolls on the toe are really strange and wonderful! Currently they are just£15 in a size 7 on eBay.

Ooh, I love this! It has been ages since I actually wrote a Semi-Daily eBay post – I have been buying a lot for myself, but haven’t seen much particularly newsworthy stuff around at all. However, this is a beauty, and I simply had to share it with you. I will post about my birthday later, but the pictures are still on my phone and need to be transferred to my computer first 🙂

I know a lot of you hate jumpsuits, and I can understand that. However, this one might be enough to change your minds. The deep dark velvet makes it look incredibly classy, whilst the formal shape is a bit different to the baggy shapes that are all too common – it looks more like a suit. Plus, it is currently only $14 with 3 days to go – which means that I really, really want it!

I have been quietly coveting these boots for ages – I think they would bring out my inner biker/rockchick/punk perfectly! Apparently they are also comfortable, and for functions sake I would be tempted to have a thick tread layer put underneath. They are just sooo cool. Of course, the reason I haven’t bought them is becasue they are so expesnive – this is the cheapest pair I have ever seen come up on eBay, and they are currently $112. With $50 postage. Ouch. I may like them, but if they are at this price with 3 days left then they are just going to go up and up!

I have been getting into oversized jumpers recently. I love wearing them when I want to be baggy and comfortable, and I also really like them worn as dresses with belts to add some shape. I found this one recently, currently $14.99 on eBay, and did actually consider buying it, mainly because of the print/pattern. In the end for some reason I decided not too – but you still can!

Oh, how I love these. And in my size too. But £55 is out of my budget for vintage shoes, even if they are designer. Everything about them makes my heart sing, from the deliciously deep platform and coal-black shade through to the thick ankle strap and sheer sexy wonderfulness… If someone could buy me these as a present I would be very very very very happy. Hint dropped enough, do you think?

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:

Semi-Daily eBay | Stunning Vintage Burberry Trench Coat January 25, 2010

I have been following Burberry coats on eBay for quite a while. This is part necessity – I want and need a nice warm coat that will last – and part curiosity. I don’t particular understand the Burberry brand, you see, and I wanted to see what people would pay lots of money for and if there was indeed anything that made the brand special in my eyes. As it happens, generally I have remained unimpressed. The brand seems largely uninspiring, expensive not for design but mainly just for the sake of being expensive. This is, in my eyes, elitist fashion, and I am happy with high street in comparison for looks and costs.

That said, I love this coat. I think the pattern and colour scheme is unusual enough for it to stand out from a sea of largely khaki trench coats, and with this piece I can see what people love about the Burberry trench. It is just £31, too, which always sweetens the deal!
