291 days to go: Ebay Babe

My swaps are starting to come in.
I have sold 20 items - dresses, jeans, jackets, skirts and tops that no longer fit.
In return I have dresses, jeans, jackets, skirts and tops that do fit.
These new Joe Brown jeans fit like a glove as does the French Connection cardigan.
I wore both with my ruffled shirt and brown sparkly shoes from Clark's.
I went into Liverpool today to meet my friend, Peter who is a Poartist.
He writes poetry and illustrates it with fantastic ink sketches.
Peter is making a guest appearance at the prison on National Poetry Day so we discussed his plans which sound very exciting.
Do you like the pose?
My husband is complaining about me being pictured in the same pose so I have been trawling my favourite blogs.
Here's me trying to copy Kasmira!
Ah well!

LOL. My husband thought I was SO dumb for the peace/victory sign thing in that picture. In Japan, EVERY girl did that when you took her picture. And most of the guys too.

I like the pose. And, I love the color of that cardi on you. Hmm... perhaps I should get into Ebay trading myself!

see you there! said...

I had to have a quick look back at through your poses. You put your left foot forward in every one, this one too. You even cross your left leg over the top in the photo of the two of you on a bench. I'm not at all sure that means anything tho, hahaha.

Love the green sweater.

You did very well in your swaps - the color of the cardi is great on you.

By the way - do you know the brand/model name of your heeled clarks mary janes? I am in love with them and cannot seem to locate them in the US. Thank you!

You look great! I love the cardi and the blouse - and the pose is awesome. It's so tough to get poses that make you look good but don't look goofy - well done!

KT said...

You rocked this look! Seriously, how hip and together do you look?

Christina Lee said...

LOVE that blouse with the whole outfit!!! You have made out, girl!
and guilt free!

Jane, when you picked these things on EBAY, did you make sure they would all work together and with what you already had, or did you just buy what would fit best? I think you are doing exactly what I do at my resale store; I just keep "trading" there so I have a turnaround in my wardrobe. I probably lose out a bit though...
