Trademe is also another great place to shop. This online store is equivalent to Ebay for America or Australia and sells new or second-hand items from socks to sandwiches! I have bought a couple of neat pieces of clothes from there, as has my sister. Over the years, a good family friend has bought some lovely branded clothes for me off Trademe, including skirts, blazers, coats, handbags, and a ball dress. Good quality, branded clothing from Cue, Max etc. can be found on Trademe with barely any wear and tear, for an amazing price!
Again, there are the ever-present risks of buying online, and in this case, you cannot return the goods, however, sizes are given, pictures are shown and a few paragraphs on the details of the item are written. Below are a few clothing items that I have received (bought or gifted from others) from Trademe, including this beautiful ballgown. All I had to do was sew some tulle on the bottom to make it longer, grow into it 😉 and voilla! It fit beautifully 🙂
(My brother’s 21st ball a couple of years ago)
(This blazer was bought off Tradme for about $16!)
(This cream coat was given to my sister and I and finishes just above the knee. It is very cute and I love the collar detailing. Very smart, good evening wear.)
(This simple black blazer has been very useful. I’ve worn it as a part of a costume for a drama I was in as well as wearing it to church and etc.)
(This white blazer was also bought from Trademe and in my opinion looks lovely with a bright pop of colour.)
Ok, so those are a few items that have been bought off Trademe. Because most of the blazers were given to me, I’m not really sure of their price, but want to say something like $20 – $30? Which is a very good price for a good quality, branded blazer which will last you a long time.
Trademe is a great site to buy other products off too. I have my eyes on some red nail polish for the season. It’s OPI and get this – it’s only $14!!! Ridiculously cheap!
Merry Christmas to you all! I’ll be bringing you a Christmas outfit post tomorrow and then hopefully some bits and pieces following that.
