Growing up, I was always the girl who loved to get dolled up. All throughout high school, I dressed up every single day. If I ever wore a t-shirt to school (which was RARE), all of my teachers would comment on it because it was so unusual.
When I got to college, nobody EVER dressed up for class. Luckily, I was warned about this beforehand, or I would’ve showed up on the first day of school dressed to the nines. There were two outfits that were socially acceptable in college: an oversized t-shirt and leggings, or workout wear. It’s safe to say I chose the workout wear (not that I worked out, I just thought they were cuter!) Lululemon has always been my favorite, but on a college budget, I couldn’t really afford it. One of my friends had always raved about eBay and how she bought all of her name brand clothes at a discounted price, so I decided to give it a try! I’m not gonna lie, I was a little hesitant at first, but what I have found is that you just have to go for high quality brands! Most active wear that I buy from eBay is Lululemon because even if it’s pre-owned, the quality lasts for such a long time. After getting so many pieces at such low prices, I have a really hard time going to the store and paying full price.
Now that I’m out of college, I still wear workout clothes everyday, but for a different reason… actually working out (LOL.) When I said goodbye to college, I also said goodbye to my fast metabolism. I now have a greater appreciation for high quality active wear because it makes a world of a difference when working out. I still buy majority of my workout clothes from eBay cause I’ve had such good experiences with it over the past 5 years, so why pay full price?!
If you are shopping on eBay for the first time and have any questions, here are some fun facts that I found super interesting!
- 81% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and available with the “Buy it Now” button (no bidding necessary)
- 69% of items ship for free… who doesn’t love free shipping?!
- There are approximately 1.1 billion listings at any given time (AKA you’re bound to find something you love!)
