Adrien: eBay is my Crack.

I have been buying and selling on eBay for more than ten years and I've bought everything from handbags to car parts. I don't sell as much as I used to but when I want a "new" bag I usually sell one and then use the money to buy another. Bags are basically currency for me.

I recently sold a bag and (of course) bought another that was less expensive. I'll post about it when it arrives but for now you'll just have to wait. With the rest of the bag money and $18 worth of "eBay Bucks" I bought these (new with tag) Frye pumps:

They're called the Kelsey ankle strap and originally retailed for nearly $200. With my eBay Bucks credit I paid about $20! Woo. Now I just have to figure out what to wear them with. I don't have any white/light grey shoes, so it'll be a fun challenge. What would you wear with them?


  1. Gotta love that Ebay! I have bought, but never sold. I buy everything from the mundane (deoderant, razor blades) to the high end (LV bags) and everything in between.

    You are lucky to have the gams to pull off an ankle strap like that on a shoe. Sadly, I don't. Ok, here's my attempt at doling out fashion advice. I would wear those shoes with a light colored, summery dress. Maybe a dress that has a small print.

  2. Love. I predict they will become a favorite pair this summer.
