girls of ebayThe Girls of eBay (a Tumblr blog that's been quietly updating since 2009) provide a frilly, Christmas sweater-y, gold lame-y glimpse into the world of eBay couture, a place where a woman will make her husband take a photo of her dressed up as a medieval wench in front of the kids' swingset.

This catalog of awkward poses, reminiscent of (but not as sad as) People of Wal-Mart, is what happens when every woman can be her own fashion model. It's silly, sometimes it's regrettable, but it's pretty great that these women (and a few men) exist.
