Before Kiel and I started Kiel James Patrick, we used to drive all over New England hunting for vintage threads — old Lacoste polos, vintage band t-shirts, vintage Lilly Pulitzer, etc to sell on eBay. The hunt was always a thrill. It was exciting to see how high certain pieces would sell for and how many people were watching an item. Fast forward many years later, I find myself on the other end of the eBay transaction. I no longer sell vintage clothing on eBay but I love shopping on the site for vintage RL sweaters for Kiel, past collection pieces from brands that I love and missed out on (the kate spade botanical print dress featured in this post), and great prices on luxury items especially shoes. I love eBay for offering lower prices on shoes from high end brands such as Gucci, Manolo Blahnik, Dolce & Gabbana, and more. My style is always classic and many of the shoes I wear are sold year after year — Ferragamo Vara Pumps, Manolo Blahnik Hangisi heels, Gucci loafers… I can’t resist searching on eBay to see if certain colors in these shoes are available. It’s always a treat to find exactly what I was looking for at a fraction of the original price.
On a recent search for wedge sandals I came across the pair featured in this post by Dolce & Gabbana. I purchased them on eBay brand new with the box for $349. The original price was $800.00. I couldn’t resist! I love the rhinestone embellishment combined with the raffia espadrille wedge. It’s the perfect shoe to wear with all of my summer dresses. I know I will be getting a lot of use out of these this summer. Below I shared a few more shoe options I’m currently watching on eBay.
Special thank you to eBay for sponsoring this post.
