I do not advise reading this post if you have somewhere to be within the next four to six hours. Not that it’s going to be particularly long or so darned gripping you’ll have to read and re-read and then re-read again. It’s not. Similarly I recommend clicking away right this second if you don’t feel in the mood to bankrupt yourself. You see, eBay will lead even the most strong willed and sensible down an internet wormhole that will dissolve your totally-getting-work-done-today resolve and see the contents of your bank account disappear faster than a freshly sizzled steak left alone with the family dog. And I’ve experienced that personally, boy, it was fast. But while you may be kissing goodbye to any hope of getting a promotion in the near future or being able to pay your phone bill, you might gain something more important… CLOTHES! In the midst of fashion month madness eBay approached me with a rather intriguing proposal, to take become a part of the eBay influencer network alongside the likes of Susie Lau, Sasha Wilkins, Kelly Hoppen and Dani Minogue. To cut a long story short, the eBay influencer network sees a coterie of bloggers, celebs and other style savvy folk curating a selection of handpicked collections for your shopping perusal. Basically, I spent aaaaaaages ogling everything on the site to pick the best of the bunch so you don’t have to. Yup, your welcome.
Obviously I gave those bad boys themes because, well, why wouldn’t you? Even more obviously and somewhat narcissistically each theme relates to stuff I wear, love and always need to own more of. We’re talking power prints, super brights, Breton stripes and collars. eBay had also enlisted Nik as an influencer so we got together one evening at The Hospital Club to get cracking on the project over a delectable steak and wine dinner. Unsurprisingly we swiftly ended up on a two man eBay rampage, by the end of which we both had way more items on our personal watch lists than in our collections. Picking up where I left off the next night I added glittery things, killer heels, wardrobe staples and handbags. By the time I got on to dreamy dresses I was officially a goner. Before I knew it I was placing a bid on a show stopping Tom Ford number. Sadly that bid was swiftly retracted once I realised I wasn’t actually Rhianna and definitely shouldn’t be spending six months rent on a frock no matter how happy it makes me just looking at it. So without further ado, go forth my friends and shop!
Love Ella. X
