Ebay is rubbish

I am deviating from my alphabet of fashion because today I am very fed up. Has anyone been on E-bay lately, its seductive advertising and promises of bargain products drew me in. I had my heart set on a beautiful designer bag. At first it had to be Chanel or Miu Miu, but then I set my sights on a beautiful Vivienne Westwood bag. I bid and won the bag for a bargainous £75. Unfortunately once I received the bag it became obvious that it was a fake. Luckily for me the buyer agreed to let me send it back (I reckon they knew it was a fake). Any once I received my money back I still had the bug, I was constantly bidding on bag until finally I won a Miu Miu S/S 2009 bag for £125. It was beautiful and for about 2 hours I was blissfully happy with my purchase, at last I had my very own roomy designer bag.

After closer scrutiny (and hours spent googling the bag) it soon became clear that this bag was also a fake, a very good fake but nethertheless it was what it was. After that the bag lost all of its glamour and appeal. I didn’t want to wear the bag and set about trying to get my money back. Unfortunately there was nothing I could do the seller had already been suspended and Ebay does not do refunds.

I have now given up and decided to wear the bag as a reminder that if it seems too good to be true than it probably is. What is more unfortunate is that because I kicked up such a fuss about the bag, I am unable to return it. Oh well.

Remember fashionistas its always better to go to the shop and purchase a designer item or to buy it from a reputable retailer like netaporter (my favourite fashion porn site). Well that’s it from me today; love fashion and more importantly love yourself!!! Mwah xoxo.
