Selling stuff....

Yeah 2 posts in one day weird huh?

Anyway I have been selling of a lot of stuff for about 2 years now, I do it in batches, well the thing is you don't stop buying so when you've been into this as long as I have you get a bit bogged down with the excess of stuff! Then there is the denial of something not fitting but not being able to bare to part with it! I have finally started to come to some of that stuff, I just listed 3 things on ebay that are all stunners, so in case there are any other larger ladies out there I thought I'd pop them up on here so you can check them out.

There will be more stuff and some really random stuff going up on my ID, I'm just trying to get rid of stuff as well as good stuff! So apologies for the random stuff!

Here's the first, a fabulous 1950s Kamahameha Hawaiian Dress in a larger size, you don't see that very often! You can see it here



I'm only really parting with this cos the size I am when this fits it's just to large for me to feel comfortable in that type of dress, does that make sense? So when it fits I don't feel comfortable wearing it and then when it's too big it looks wrong! So really it's got to go, I love it, but it will never work :o(

Second up, oh boy why I even bought this I'll never know, I have had it for so many years I can't tell you, I even remember buying it and when I found it, but here's the thing, I hate pink, I don't wear pink and it doesn't suit me! So why haven't I sold this before now, cos I LOVE the style, I've even said in the ebay listing, if it doesn't sell I'm going to dye it black eeek! You can view it here



And last but certainly not least this little beauty! Well I'll have to post a few pics of this cos WOW! You can see this here










Anyway thought I'd let you all know in case you are, or know someone who is a larger size cos I know how hard it is to get good vintage clothes in larger sizes.

I'll be listing loads more, mostly in much smaller sizes, but probably over the next few days rather than just today.

Right better get back to it!

Niiice. By the way, those are Kachinas or Kachina dolls featured on that skirt. =)

OK...I want them all, but none would fit right. The Kamehameha would be to big in the bust. I've owned a Kamehameha that was too big in the bust before, and I am never satisfied in it, so I know your pain. The pink is so cute and I love pink, but my arse is too big for it. The skirt is AMAZING but the waist is a too big now :-(

All great items I would snatch up in a hurry if the measurements were mine.

That skirt is brilliant!! Hehe. Too big for me, alas, but I hope it goes to a good home.

Ah Kim I usually have the opposite my problem is the bust area that's why these style dresses fit me well usually!

Andi, isn't it lovely this is why I haven't been able to part with it but I refuse to shorten it and it's ridiculously long for me :o(
