A Pop of Yellow

I’m not sure about you, but I’m not a ‘yellow’ person. I never thought I could wear it, let alone pair it with a royal purple dress.

But alas, here we are.

When my friend offered to lend me her yellow leather jacket for Easter, I couldn’t resist.

“Why not?” I thought.

At first, I felt very Easter egg-y, colorful and bright. I don’t usually wear anything that bold. To be honest, I almost chickened out when I first tried it on. I felt like a giant yellow highlighter!

But then I realized life is short, why worry about the color jacket I wear? Wearing a little yellow never hurt anybody. It also got me thinking.

To wear bright yellow (paired with an equally colorful purple dress) took a bit of stepping outside of the fashion comfort zone. It encouraged me to be a bit more confident and rock the yellow jacket, not just wear it half-heartedly.

Yellow isn’t my color and will never be a color I choose willingly, but daring to try something different and challenge the way I view spring fashion was fun. I definitely recommend pushing your fashion limits to try something new. You never know – you could end up loving it!

The eBay Secret Every Fashionista On a Budget Should Know

I have a confession to make.

I am semi-addicted to eBay.

Seriously. If a product comes with free shipping and there is 5 minutes left, it is mine and I will not let it out of my grip.

Just kidding!

I do not bid on Ebay. I refuse.

In fact, even if there is a cute necklace and there are no bids with 5 minutes left, I will not bid on it.

I do not bid. I will not bid. It’s not worth it.

However… 

The “buy it now” option on eBay is a weakness, and I am admitting that to you today.

It is not a problem. It is a hobby.

A very cheap, very fun hobby.

How can you not want to buy a pair of earrings for 99 cents and free shipping?! It seems too good to be true, but it is not. It is real, and it’s fantastic.

Let me let you in on a few recent purchases… maybe then you will understand my recent fascination with finding a steal and spending literally next to nothing

*Disclaimer: I do not purchase items all the time. I recently discovered how much money I could save with the “buy it now” option and wanted to inform you of this brilliant, brilliant alternative to purchasing accessories.

* Each item below was purchased for $1 on eBay with free shipping. *

See? So fun. Each accessory comes about 2 weeks after the purchase and by that time, I’ve usually forgotten about the purchase so it’s like a surprise to myself every time!

The more you know. 🙂
