What's A Girl To Do?

I won, I won!
This is the first time I have bidded on something from Trade Me (New Zealand's answer to Ebay) in many years.
I had bad experiences with my previous purchases. Way to dingy/ misleading photos and myself being to click happy.

I'm so excited for this mini-dress! However, it finished at a random time in the afternoon, when normal people are at work and i'm most likely scouring through the racks at op-shops finding treasures.

Which as it happens I was today when my phone alarm for the auction ending went off.
.....Oh yeah i'm nerdy like that.....
So heres me, half out the door while buying the items I had to quickly sift through, bolting out the door, recently purchased hat threatening to lift from my head and fly under passing cars and I suspect my whole backside on show as a tore down the street, not wanting to the lose the auction.

In a dramatic fashion, I dropped my bags of treasures at the door burst in and opened the auction with 17 seconds to go and .....unfortunately....ME in the lead....

Oh well, atleast I won.

Congrats! I hate bidding because if I lose I feel like it's a personal attack, ha! You should create a photo shoot around the dress, like a fashion spread. Over the top!
