Shopping on @eBay_Fashion | Out of Stock? Doubt It.


To be totally honest, last week was the first time I had ever placed an order on eBay. I used eBay to sell some items a few years back–but that’s about it. So when I was presented with the opportunity to do a little shopping on eBay, it was an entirely new experience for me.


I’m stating the obvious here but there are sooooo many things to choose from on eBay. I had to focus my shopping a little bit more than usual and ultimately decided to find a pair of edgy, platform shoes. Once I narrowed down the shoe selection by size, price and brands, I realized I could also choose to only see items that I could “Buy Now”–as opposed to bidding on. (Woot!) That option, coupled with free expedited shipping, led me to these babies — “Aria” by Rock & Republic. Black–check. Edgy–check. High–check.


Naturally, I did a search on the web to learn more about the shoes I was about to purchase. Since they are out of season, they are pretty much out of stock everywhere–except eBay; this is what I love about eBay. Fashion is seasonal, but that doesn’t mean a pair of shoes from 2010 isn’t just as hot (or hotter) in 2012.

A wise woman once said, “The higher the heel, the better you feel.” Pushing 6″, these Rock & Republic platforms make me feel like I’m on top of the world. I love the zipper detail and the perforated leather ankle straps on these shoes. I totally see myself pairing “Aria” with this yellow blazer I snagged at our last Sip & Swap event and this chic dress that’s waiting patiently to leave my eBay cart. Oh yes, eBay has found a new customer.

From the new to the hard to find, when it’s on your mind, it’s on eBay.
