Who: Kendra of Closet Confections
What: Vintage ’80s secretary dress
How Much: $30
When I Use It: I love this dress because it’s perfect for both work and play! This particular photo was taken during my lunch break (I have the typical desk job in a corporate setting). It easily transitioned to a party I attended later that evening.
Shopping Tips: I’m slowly but surely turning into an eBay ninja! This dress was one of my first official “snipes.” If you don’t know what “sniping” is, it’s when you wait until the very last seconds of an auction to place your bid. You can do this easily by making a note of an auction’s end time and waiting by the computer. Or if you want to get all high-tech, you can use special sniping software. You know the feeling you get when you’re somewhat considering a dress in a store, and someone grabs it before you’ve had a chance to make up your mind? Yeah, that one! The sniping software helps you avoid getting caught up in last minute bidding frenzies and spending more money than you originally planned.
