Sold some and bought some

Recently, i have sold several items from my collection that i have never or don't use at. The things that i have sold are some jeans, blazers and bags. Well...having some extra disposable cash means its acquisition time again...haha~

Anyway, i didn't buy much. Below are the 2 blazers that i have just bought...i guess i won't have a chance to wear them until next winter.

I've also been considering selling stuff from my collection that I never wear. I was really disappointed with the fit of the Reflection stuff that I bought. I suppose things didn't get really good until Luster. I think I'd like to have less run of the mill Dior items and focus on getting the harder to get ones instead.

i think u should sell your items that you are not using since there is no point keeping them. Yeah...thats true about the things from different collection. Actually, the cutting and sizing differs from season to season. I am looking for classic items rather than hard to get or special items.

I know what you mean. Now I'm considering whether the piece will look good a couple years down the road or if it will seem outdated.
By the way, I've decided to go all in and bid for the Strip blazer. Do you know anyone who could help me bid in yahoo auctions japan. I don't speak Japanese and don't have an account. So I can't bid. If you know anyone who could help me that would be wonderful.

monsieur AG said...

you can try bid-service.jp but his charges is 15%

ado rimbo said...

is there any other way? Do you know anyone with a yahoo auction japan account that I can trust and may want to help me? I can always pay him for his help, I just want to avoid paying 15%

monsieur AG said...

sorry man...i got no idea...

yoyo said...

try http://www.sharpservice.jp. quick response and usually lower fees.

Thanks for the advice yoyo, but I just bought the strip blazer through bid-service.jp. The 15% fee is steep, but it's as much as I would have paid in taxes if I had bought it new.

monsieur AG said...

Wow!! u actually splurge on it?!!?!!

please show us some pics when you received them

yeah, I figured it would be now or never with a tux blazer like that. It was expensive, but the advantage is that it's such a unique tux that you never run into the risk of having H&M copy the design.

monsieur AG said...

yeah...i totally agree!

ado rimbo said...

I'll send you pictures as soon as it arrives. I can't wait to get it here. And next up in the list is the follow me campaign blazer. That one shows up quite frequently in Yahoo auctions, but always in size 44. If only I could get it in size 46/48. I guess that half the fun of being a dior fan is having to be constantly looking up the perfect items.

monsieur AG said...

which campaign blazer?

ado rimbo said...

The S/S 2003 blazer for Follow Me. The one that I'm looking for is the same that is shown in the campaign image you have in your website for Follow Me. It is the Tux blazer that is the cropped swallow tail one. It's always available in 44, but never in 46 or 48

monsieur AG said...

ok. now i know. Yeah, this blazer is quite common in yahoo.jp and its there almost all the time...

issa said...

lol~~seems i have all what you like, strip and follow me tux~~

ado rimbo said...

haha. True issa. And you also had that great reflection suit that I also wanted haha. Although after buying one reflection jacket, I'm a little disappointed with that collection. Oh well, at least now I have the Strip blazer. And it won't be long before I get the follow me tux haha.
