Pinterest Jackpot

If you don't know what the Pinterest Jackpot is, or at least my version of it, then keep reading and you will by the end of this post.

Last week I was looking at this adorable set that I'd pinned on my Fashion Faves board and decided to look for this particular dress.


Imagine my dismay when I found out this dress (by H&M) was two years old and most certaintly out of stock.  So with a heavy heart, I hopped over to Ebay thinking by some slim chance it might be there.

Not only did I find the dress, in my size and in perfect condition, but it was 99 cents! How is this possible?! Talk about Pinterest jackpot! So, after waiting a few days and even waking up extra early on a Sunday just to be able to bid on the dress, I won this little beauty for $4.25. Oh the wonderfulness that is Ebay.

Also, if you're on Pinterest, and you care to follow me, I've provided a little "Follow Me on Pinterest" button off to the right side of my blog.

That is awesome! To not only find the dress but get it for a steal of a price makes it even better. Enjoy your new purchase :)

That's awesome! Ebay has become my new outlet for selling things around the house for extra cash... the problem is that I then see things I want. Sigh. Oh well. At least I'm sort of trading instead of buying outright.

Can you please tell me how in the world I can add the Pinterest pin??? I am not Blogger savvy so cannot figure it out myself. Thank you!

That's great! I have a love hate relationship with outfit pins for that very reason. They always have a piece in them that I love which is older and unable to find!
