Shopping: Popping my ASOS Marketplace cherry

As you probably know by now I’m a one for rummaging in charity shops and vintage stores, trying to find the next big bargain. I’m pretty partial to eBay too, but aside from that I very rarely buy second hand clothes online. I just feel they can be a bit hit and miss, often arriving with sweat stains or smelling dusty.

But the other week I finally bought my first item on ASOS Marketplace. A sister site of the retail giants ASOS, the site allows people to sell on their stuff while posing in them in a garden or by a disused rail road (no, really, I’ve actually seen that). That’s the reason I stick to selling things on eBay – I can’t bring myself to vogue on a beach or attempt to model H2T Tyra-style in a botanical garden for these photos, but I can buy from there.

I decided it was time to embrace polka dots, my softly-softly way of getting into prints for spring, and found this very cute top. Polka dots – check, cobalt blue – check, removable shoulder pads – check!

Paired with my berry tweed shorts from Topshop

The best thing about this site is you can ‘make an offer’ on products. So rather than paying £20 for this, I got it for £15 (not including p&p from the US), which I was very happy with.

The transaction was so easy and simple and the seller was really communicative and lovely – wins all round!

(I’m off on holiday to the Lake District so won’t be posting for a while, but I’ll be back in April!)
