Everything in today's outfit, except the jeans and the pearls, were scored on Ebay. All of the items were reasonably priced and well, some were just down right cheap. For instance, the tee was a mere five dollars and change...and that's with shipping!!

With the increase of J Crew's prices and the decline of their quality and workmanship as of late, I've been snatching up some missed old school pieces. Don't get me wrong, I still love the new stuff too but the quality of the older pieces are markedly better. For instance, the jackets today, don't hold a candle to the Lexington Blazer. It probably has more craftsmanship on the inside than most of the current offerings have in total. Not to mention the beautiful hardware and quality materials...this jacket feels like it weighs about five pounds. I'm exaggerating but it is quality with a capital "Q".
Do you ebay? If so, what are some of your fabulous finds?
