The eBay Challenge

eBay Challenge

This is the beginning of a new series of posts and videos, I like nothing more than tackling a challenge and so I'm going to be setting myself various fashion and beauty tasks over the coming months and documenting my progress for you all to see.

My inaugural challenge is the aptly named ‘eBay Challenge’. The rules are simple; I must source an outfit solely from eBay and for no more than £50 (not including postage). Note: this will not include underwear - I have no desire to wear someone else’s second hand smalls.

The only thing I've yet to decide is what kind of outfit I should choose. I have three possibilities, but I need your help to make the final decision. The three options are as follows:

  • Party
  • Smart (Evening Out)
  • Casual (Day Time)

Apart from underwear (see reference above), every other part of the outfit must come from eBay. I have allowed myself two weeks to assemble my outfit of choice, since eBay is an auction site I may have to wait a few days for the auctions to end and I want to ensure that I allow time for that.

Let me know which outfit you think I should tackle by leaving me a comment below. And feel free to keep me posted of any bargains you might see... that’s not considered cheating I'm sure...

I hope I have bitten off more than I can chew for my first challenge, but watch this space and let’s see how I get on. Challenge Anneka (see here) move aside, it’s time for Challenge Helen!
