Ebay Obsessions

Oh, Ebay, how I love you. Let me count the ways:

- I love that I can find vintage and second hand items that are totally unique and affordable and, usually, exceptionally well-made.
- I can buy items that are in line with current trends (if I feel like being trendy) without needing to buy anything new.
- I also like that it is not a "spur-of-the-moment" sort of decision. Searching, examining, waiting, bidding - it really is the opposite of how our shopping culture is right now - where buying decisions are haphazard and superficial. [Do you really need another black top?]

In any case, I've spent some time this week looking for new things to add to my closet. I will only bid on some of these. For instance, do I really need the feather dress at the bottom? Prob. not, but, God, isn't it delicious?
