Kim Kardashian in a white outfit and nude coat

Kim Kardashian is many things – a reality TV star, a fashion designer, an app developer and a mother-of-one, to name a few – but we never had her pegged as an avid eBay shopper.

However, the 34-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashian's star has confessed her love for the live-auction site and has already worn her most-recent purchase... Who'd have thought?

We clocked Kim running errands around LA with her pregnant sister Kourtney rocking a chic white crop top and skirt combo which she offset with a nude coat and matching heels. It wasn't until later that we checked out her Instagram account and found out that one of the pieces that made up her on-point look was savvily sourced. 

Posting a snap of the outfit she sported that day, Kim captioned the shot: 'Today's look- Wolford top I cut to crop it. Wolford dress I'm wearing as a skirt. Margiela dress I'm wearing open as a jacket. Prada heels I bought on eBay. Hermes purse. Saint Laurent sunglasses.' 

You heard it here first, folks; Kim Kardashian is an eBay-er and a DIY-er! We don't know about you, but we didn't think she would be one for sitting down to do a spot of customisation.

Oh, and as for finding amazing Prada heels on eBay, we don't suppose you fancy doing a bidding session on our behalf, do you Kim?

Spinning her pieces in a new way is no mean feat either; even the coolest and most-seasoned fashion bloggers can find it tricky to breathe a new lease of life into their basics, so Kim's dress-come-coat and frock-come-skirt change-up is all the more inspiring. 

So, if you're looking to update your look with minimal effort, you should now keep KKW on your radar...
