Wardrobe Clearout (Ended)

model wardrobe

I don’t know whether this will interest any of you, but I was asked by lots of people to let you all know if I ever did a wardrobe clearout. And so, just to let you know: I’m having a wardrobe clearout.

Lots of stuff on eBay, some of it for a couple of pounds (cute little mini skirts) and some for a bit more. Specific gems, in my opinion, are the £300 Marc Jacobs boots that are on for £30 – worn once, bought a size too small because I couldn’t resist them.. There’s also a glitzy little Jimmy Choo for H&M bomber jacket (£30) and some extremely cool R Soles biker boots which have only seen the light of day for ten minutes! (Again, bought a size too small. When will I ever learn?)

I can’t imagine I’ll be doing another clearout in a hurry – eBay is the biggest faff in the entire world. It took me a whole day to take the photographs and write the descriptions and then, once it’s all over, it all has to be packaged up and lugged to the post office! I can see why people prefer to do car boot sales instead…



  1. Beautiful shoes…

  2. I had to laugh quite a bit when I saw your username ^^ Awesome stuff you have listed, will definitely check it out :-)

  3. Ruth, I have gorgeous dresses including a pink ben de lisi, silk ruth tarvydas (Australian designer), ralph lauren dress, by love dress (boutique) and many more. All in perfect condition. Like you I tried ebay took the photos uploaded and made descriptions but when I went to confirm my paypal they said that account exists and I am still left wondering how I can confirm it. Im now looking at using the ASOS marketplace to sell them. Its such a pity…I wish there was a perfect forum to showcase them..x

  4. oooh i love it, just checked it out :) u should have more of these!

  5. ahh I love all the shoes, I’m a size 3 though…:( Sad.

  6. I wish u had my shoesize :(

  7. Oh my, Ruth…those shoes look so much like a pair I bought at a great shoe store eons ago near Harvey Nics, the shoes are perhaps Stuart Weizmann? Mine are more…ahem, “vintage”, however. But looking at them makes me wonder if looking through my closet would be worth going an e-bay route.

    I’ve never even gone onto e-bay but know my daughter LOVES e-bay. I worry about the “addiction” aspect! ;).

    Because of extensive remodeling (taking FOREVER!) there is nothing in my new, nearly completed closet. How great would it be to actually put in the things I WOULD use…I’m a terrible hoarder! Again, thanks so very much for the fantastic idea.

    Worried about Zen Garden’s pal pay concern. I remember I got an e-mail notice that I had a pay pen account – which I did not apply for – but given that I was with my daughter in hospital I never followed up on what that was all about…different priorities as you well know. Thanks, Ruth!

  8. Is it just me? I am, after all, a relatively new subscriber/follower – but I think that between your hospital and health “incident”, the awfulness of the hacking and having to completely redo your blog/website and the last video (casting, but also that very personal and frank talk about health and food, etc., concerns which matter so much), along with, most importantly, the questions posed to you yesterday with such very honest replies, (breathe, Upa, breathe!) I think the blog has changed a bit and suddenly become an EXTREMELY cozy, relaxed place with friendships blooming? I’ve loved this site since the moment I found it, but I think that it has suddenly taken on a more magical quality which is hard to define, much less achieve, and I just LOVE it! I absolutely hate to gush, but Ruth, you’re a gem and your (hard) work has given us a safe haven for such personal concerns, as well a cheerful, fun and inspirational place to retreat to. Your mum did a fine job raising you! Thanks and kudos to you both!

    • @Upa thank you so much! That is exactly what I always wanted it to be. It’s hard work and takes a lot of time to answer questions and so on, but it’s well worth it! xxx

  9. Love the Marc Jacobs boots – but can I be a pain and ask what size calf they go round? I always have trouble

  10. i like your shoes, but sadly they are too big for me :-(
    and i have to say that just recently i descovered your blog and i absolutley loving it, thank you for doing this. big hello from Estonia ;-)
