When I made a list of Wardrobe Staples last year, I was intent on getting a Mac even before they became "on trend" for Spring and I decided that I would have a look on ebay for one - big mistake. I am fine selling on ebay but rarely do I buy anything and certainly not clothes for myself, but thought that should change, in an effort to save money.
I found one, placed a bid at the last minute and then waited for about a week for it to arrive. I paid £7 postage and packing, missed the parcel because I was at work. Collected it from the Post Office to find that it had cost the seller £2.70 and was bemused that the package was round. When I managed to fight my way through the brown tape it was evident that the coat had just been sent in a carrier bag, inside another carrier bag and that the parcel was round? The Mac had been put the bag and then formed into a round parcel which meant it was screwed to fuck. I was so bloody angry, I can't even bring myself to try it on and just don't want it at all. It will go in one of those Charity bags that come through the door and I shall be leaving negative feedback or maybe even asking for my money back.
Disillusioned, I looked online for one and found a Kaliko Trench reduced from £130 to £31.50 on House of Fraser in the Clearance section. I have ordered it. It looks quite long and I wanted a 3/4 one really but if it fits I can always get it taken up a bit and you know how I love a bargain. I have never bought anything from Kaliko before, have any of you? or do you have any ebay horror stories concerning clothing? Have you got a Mac or do you intend to buy one for Spring?
