Trash the Dress is so 2015. The new hotness is Selling Your Wedding Dress on eBay Accompanied by a Scathing Take Down of Your Cheating Husband.

Blogger Samantha has listed her art deco wedding dress on eBay for 500 pounds, saying it’s in “great condition but needs dry cleaning before wearing to get rid of the stench of betrayal.” She later explains that she’s mainly selling the dress to help pay for her divorce, and that it also comes with a veil!

Samantha told the Daily Dot that the page has gotten a lot of views, but no bids yet. She’s also “not sure whether my ex husband has seen it as we’re not in contact regularly.” She also told Mirror Online that she discovered her husband of a year and a half cheating on her and living with another woman. 

She writes, “Sorry that there are only two pictures but when I found out my husband was living with another woman, I pretty much burned/permanently deleted everything with his disgusting face on it!”

The dress, an ivory lace dress with an empire waist designed by Art Couture, is on sale for five more days. So start bidding, if only because “if you want a dress that is full of bad memories and shattered hopes and dreams then this is the one for you!” is the most goth sales pitch ever.
