All Laced Up

Now I'm a girl whose loved and lost.  When it comes to making up and breaking up I've done it all - the live-in boyfriend; the psycho restraining order boyfriend; the boyfriend who didn't realize he was my name it and I will have loved 'n lost it.  But there is a certain true love that has remained ever faithful to me throughout the years.  When all else has failed (and oh my, have they failed) this lover has always adored me, flattered me and made me feel good no matter what.  Ladies and gentlemen, my true love is lace....

Now let's get this straight, this is no fair-weather romance we are talking about here.  I didn't need Kate Middleton's wedding dress to seduce me.  My relationship with lace was born back in the 80s when I was.  I was adorned in the fabric, Desperately Seeking Susan style, more times than I care to remember.

So it's really no surprise that the second item I am choosing to sell on the Love Bid Buy Ebay store is none other than lace!  I have been in love with this little shrug for many a year but sadly it's not getting the wear that it used to and it's time to bid adieu.  This was a piece from the fabulous collection Milla Jovovoich designed for Mango back in 2007.  Of course, it's perfect over evening wear but I also love it with a black tank top and jeans for a look that's modern and chic.  Happy shopping my fabulous Recessionistas!  And remember.....a portion of the proceeds from this purchase will be donated to charity.......

The Love Bid Buy E-Bay Store

It was always bound to happen.  At some certain point in time the name of this blog was due to make sense.  And that day, my Recessionista friends, is today.

On this very Labor Day weekend I am officially launching the Love Bid Buy E-Bay Store.  The concept is pretty simple – you see something you love, you bid on it and you buy it.  Voila!  It has been my life-long dream to make Hollywood Glam accessible to the masses and through this Ebay Store I shall be doing just that.  But don’t expect to find pages and pages of items to trawl through – I fervently believe in quality over quantity and so I will be bringing you one exclusive designer find on a month to month basis.

And my magnanimous ways don’t just end there.  What will set Love BidBuy’s Ebay Store apart from all others is that I want to give back.  A portion of the proceeds from every single item sold on this store will be donated to charity.  And if you would like to sell clothes on Love Bid Buy to support your own charity you can email me here.

So without further ado, I present Love Bid Buy’s inaugural item for sale – this gorgeous Robert Rodriguez shift dress (see below).  Don't forget to come back next week for styling tips!

Happy shopping my friends!
