CHANEL SUNGLASSES, $50
Quick post. My Authentic Chanel Sunglasses (5213) came in today in the mail! They are tourtoise shell but you can’t see it from the poor lighting in my room. I purchased it on ebay for a mere $50 (original is $309); can you believe that? I can’t either. Talk about being smart and thrifty! (*pats my self in the back.hehe*) They are pre-owned, that’s why they cost less, AND i learned how to “snipe-bid” from a youtube video, and won the auction! Basically, you wait till the last seconds till you bid the highest amount you are willing to pay (in my case 85 bucks!). The bidder before me only bid 51 bucks, so I won, and only had to pay 51 dollars! When they came in, they had one scratch in the left glass, but it could only be seen from the inside. Another thing I noticed was that the fit was too big. Luckily, the local eye glasses store was able to fix it for me (for free!) so that it fits my small head. He bent the end of the arms a little by heating, and voila! Fits like a glove.
So yea, just wanted to share that experience! If you are thrifty as hell like me, but still wanna look sophisticated without dropping hundreds and thousands of bucks which you could be saving to pay your college loans (my situation) , I encourage you to browse through ebay!! Just the other day, they had a deal on Ray Bans for $95( retails $150 bucks from sunglasshut)!! I say that’s a sweet deal, the 50+ dollars you save could go towards a Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume, or another Chanel Glasses! :D lololll. But of course, purchase with caution and make sure the seller is not a fraud, and has good feed backs!
Vintage Dooney and Bourke bag from Etsy finally came in the mail. :)
I love black fridayss!! Got this baby from Michael Kors at the outlet for 20 % off. ohhh yesss
This marc jacobs bag needs to be in my life.
Me in my thrifted vintage Dior secretary blouse from Buffalo Exchange! It’s so hard to find anything that I could pair with this blouse. Ultimately, I resorted to a color blocking technique and paired it with blue tweed shorts from H&M (on sale for 10 bucks). I think they look quite nice together. The short gave the whole outfit a preppy, less severe, and modern vibe. For the accessories, I opted for gold bangle, earrings and clutch to give it a good contrast.
