eBay purchases: rated

This is the third time I’ve done an online/ebay purchases rated blog post. See my other two here, and here. Photos shown on the far left are the images on eBay, and the other ones to the right are when I received the product, so you can tell what it looks like!

My opinion: What can I say? It’s a toothbrush. It works well, and it’s the perfect size for traveling. I’m not sure that I’d pay the $20 for if I had my time back though, the brush head is small.

Seller: michael-dan on eBay
Item: Rose Gold Plated titanium steel Bracelet
Paid: $19.00 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 12 business days
My opinion: This is such a gorgeous piece, and actually a knock-off of a higher brand name. I’m not sure who? Michael Kors I know makes one too. The bracelet has an engraving that says “Cartier” on it, but of course it’s not real. As soon as I opened the box it came in, it looked like a child sized bracelet and I thought it wouldn’t fit my 5-inch-something wrists (I have petite wrists). Thankfully it did and it’s amazing quality. It feels like it’s got some weight to it, and the edges don’t rub on my wrist at all. If I knew anyone who would love this bracelet as much as I do, I’d buy it for them for next Christmas! I’ve been wearing this non-stop and getting tons of compliments on it, each time I wear it.

Seller: mckalaur on eBay
Item: 5 PRADA Shielding Lip Balm SPF 15
Paid: $12.99 + $3.00 shipping. Worth the price? No

Location: United States
Delivery: 5 business days – incredibly fast shipping
My opinion: These lip balms are so miniature, but for a person who doesn’t wear much lip products on a daily basis, this is a nice luxurious touch to add into my handbag. The lipbalm itself is very buttery on your lips, and it has a slight tint to it. Very nice!

Seller: ticticcompany on eBay
Item: Ladies jumbo metallic designer rose gold watch
Paid: $17.49 + $4.00 shipping. Worth the price?
Location: United States
Delivery: 9 business days.
My opinion: As soon as I took the watch out of its wrapping, I first noticed the size of the face. That thing was huge! The sound that the watch made when it was off my wrist was also notable, as it sounded quite cheap. But that’s what I get for a $20 watch. The face itself is quite nice and doesn’t look inexpensive. I had to get  a few links removed from the watch as it was ginormous as every watch is, before you get it sized. But I’ve been wearing it nearly ever day since I got it. I fooled my co-worker and she actually thought it was one of my many Fossil watches. Until I told her I got it on Ebay! I gave it 3/5 stars because of the quality. I feel like it’s not going to last. But it still looks nice.

Item: New Tough Genuine Leather Brown Removable Mens Womens Wallet purse a68160 NWT
Paid: $28.96 + $5.99 shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 17 business days
My opinion: Smells like real leather, parents said it was real lol! It’s so very soft to the touch, too. I bought this during the summer but decided to wait until now because it was a Christmas present. Yes, I shop that early on in the year. My Mom received this wallet part of her Christmas present so I couldn’t post it until now.

Paid: $3.85 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes

My opinion: For $4, you get a Longchamp knock-off nylon bag! It’s completely only worth the $4 though, as it’s dollar-store quality.

My ebay purchases, rated…

Remember my ebay finds back in March? Well all of my items have finally arrived and I’m rating my ebay purchases for you all! I’ll be talking about the quality, and whether or not it’s worth to buy the item itself on ebay. I may continue to do posts like this, if it’s beneficial for you all. I’ve made some recent Etsy purchases, and a few more ebay items. Either way, see the rest of my post below.

Seller: ccclothcc
Item: Rabbit Fur Knit Cardigan
Paid: $18.99 + $8.99 shipping. Worth the price? No. But I’ve negotiated on my second item purchased with her, see below.
Location: Hong Kong
Delivery: 11 business days from when I placed the order, to when it arrived. Order placed March 5, arrived March 19
My opinion: I thought it was a little more luxurious looking online than in person. In person is has more of a peach tone to it rather than the grey-white one that it looks like, online. The material itself is quite soft, and the fit is accurate. Just wish the color was a little more flattering. None the less I really do love the piece and am debating buying the red cardigan as well.
Overall rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Seller: ccclothcc
Item: Orange Color Mix Pattern Top
Paid: $10.00 + $2.00 shipping. Worth the price? Yes (as I negotiated the price).
Location: Hong Kong
Delivery: 9 business days from when I placed the order, to when it arrived.
My opinion: It’s not super cute in person. I dislike the vibrancy of the orange, thinking it was more of a nice coral shade online. It’s wearable for summer. The sizing isn’t as accurate as I had thought. It’s off the shoulder on the girl to the left. The fabric is a really soft cotton and the fit is great on me. The arm cuffs would be tight on someone bigger as they’re snug on me.

Seller: auysfdesign
Item: White cotton batwing sleeve loose tops
Paid: $11.88 + free shipping. Worth the price? YES NO
Location: China
Delivery: 13 business days from when I placed the order, to when it arrived.
My opinion: The quality of the tee is like Forever 21, and I’m afraid the stitching on the see through part of the arms are going to eventually undo from the rest of the top. Overall if it had better stitching I’d give it 5 stars because it’s such a flattering piece on the body. Though, I may order more because I really do love this top.

Seller: greentea212
Item: Celebrity Hollywood Star Women Leopard Pink Soft Scarf
Paid: $13.74 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: Hong Kong
Delivery: 27 business days. I don’t know why this one took as long as it did, it was annoying waiting for it as it was my first ebay purchase out of all the ones shown above (and below)
My opinion: Nice basic scarf, a little different looking with the two patterns on it. It’s not the most highest quality, I’d say similar to H&M.
Overall rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Didn’t get 5 stars because the price was just “ok” and it took forever to get here)

Seller: upoct-01
Item: Black Cool Big Skull Cotton Womens Long Scarf
Paid: $0.15 + $4.99 shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 31 BUSINESS DAYS. It said it’d take 18-29 business days but I was getting worried and by day 30 I contacted the ebay seller letting them know I had yet to receive it. It of course, came the next day.
My opinion: It’s a nice scarf. I’m debating saving this for my oldest nephew (P.s. I have 4 nephews lol…also, hope he doesn’t read my blog) for Christmas. Because I think he loves skulls.
Overall rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Only because of the slow service)

Ebay finds

I can’t stand bidding on eBay. I’ve had a few things outbid on me seconds before the item expired. It’s almost stressful! That’s why I’m more of a fan of ebay sellers who list “buy it now” or “best offer” on their ebay site.

I don’t know what possessed me to look on ebay for clothes, but I think it may have had something to do with Laura’s blog post (Buy Now Blog Later) about this scarf that she purchased on Ebay. As soon as I saw it on her blog I clicked the ebay link and from there all hell broke loose. So far I’ve contained myself to four purchases. {1} {2} {3} {4}

So with regards to that, I’ve decided to compile a list of ebay sellers and items in particular I’m eying. Why does everything look great on the models? They’re so convincing!

Above is joojoocomco2010‘s ebay listings. {1} {2} {3} {4}

This ebay seller is probably my favorite: ccclothcc‘s ebay {1} {2} {3} {4}. I wanted to show you many more than four outfits. But then the post would be overwhelming. The prices are really low, compared to the one listed above. I also like a lot more pieces from her Ebay store than any others.

Above: auysfdesign‘s ebay. {1} {2} {3} {4}

Above: evajuni‘s ebay. {1} {2} {3} {4}. Who doesn’t want to accessorize their outfits with a little purse love? These one’s are mostly Balenciaga knock off’s.

What do you think? Did I convince you to start shopping on Ebay?
